Similarities between 1999 and 2018
« on: February 12, 2018, 04:32:24 pm »

Some eerie similarities, possibly.

1999: Hog team was doing ok but in need of quality wins late.
In comes to town Kentucky and Auburn.
Kentucky always Kentucky and it was one of those rare years Auburn was hot. The Chris Porter team.
Hogs beat UK 74-70 and roll #2 Auburn 104-88 in a game many people still talk about.
Hogs go from bubble to #4 seed, I believe, beat Siena in Round 1 and lose to Iowa in Round 2

2018:
Hog team is doing ok but in need of quality wins.
In comes to town Kentucky and Auburn
Kentucky is always Kentucky, but it's one of those rare years where Auburn is hot.

Will history repeat?

That Hog team was ranked most of the season. Also, Ky was ranked 6th when they came to town and Aub was 2nd. Ky is likely coming in unranked, Aub may be top 10. That team also beat #21 Fla in the SEC and made it to the finals where they lost a rematch with KY.

This year, even if they were to win out in the reg season, I do not see them getting higher than a 7 seed.

Oh yea, no way do I see a #4 seed.

I think the biggest similarity is because Auburn is rarely this good. You'd probably have to go all the way back to 1999.

I used to love college basketball but when hand checks and minor slaps are called and big men can beat on people under the basket with 2x4ís and not draw a foul, it became an ugly game.  I think it is beginning to get better but the talent drain continues to hurt it.

It's crazy my dad complains about how rough the game got in the late 80s and 90s and now he says they're starting to call it like it should be again... minus the walks.

Jeffries was from Fresno.  He transferred back home because his mom died.  I think that is what I heard.

My dad grew up in the same town as Bevo Francis ( look him up ESPN did a piece on him a few years ago ) in Ohio in the late 40's/early 50's. He talks about how rough the game was, how going near the basket was at your own risk.

Anyway, every rule change in the past 20 years has been to help the offense. Right down to eliminating the 5 second closely guarded dribble rule. Now a player can dribble out the entire 30 second shot clock. Elimination of hand checks, the cylinder rule, no chucking cutters, etc. Whats funny is, none of it has really increased scoring. One of Suttons teams averaged over 70ppg, and that was without a 3pt line.

Auburn cheats at everything. They have to be one of the slimiest schools in the NCAA.
I've always attributed it to the big brother/little brother thing with Alabama. So much pressure in that state. Auburn always trying to keep up with the Joneses.
They probably cheat at gymnastics, too.

In this case, it's both. Auburn cheats, but Pearl is a good coach too.

I think we could get easily a 4 seed if we win out for sure...those would be 5 big, big time wins, all quadrant 1 as they keep talking about

I was in the Hogwild Band in 1999.  Those two games (UK and AU) are still the loudest games I can remember.

If we beat A&M, Bama, Mizzou, Kentucky, and Auburn we would be way better than a 7 seed.

Definitely one of the best I've attended.  I sure miss that environment and those days, but not Jefferson Pilot Sports.  That SR class was probably the first I truly got to appreciate their whole career

Same.  I only remember a few games from the 94-95 seasons and nothing significant earlier than that unfortunately.  I remember the 96-99 teams pretty well though.  They were a bit up and down but they usually put on a show.  Towards the end, "40 minutes of hell" seemed like it had jumped the rails and was just complete mayhem for the good and the bad.  Starting 5 guards that could all shoot threes but nobody could make a free throw.  It was feast or famine.  Still, in comparison with the quality of basketball from the last few years it amazes how good those teams were.  College basketball has gotten a bit better the last few years but for a while it was awful.  Those late 90's teams were flawed but they'd beat most of the Hog teams from 2008-2015 by 30 points on a bad night.
