As it is, because of Malzahn, how many people at Auburn know they still have a basketball team, much less one that can’t win?
They might be mad that Barbee has lost at least 20 games in two of the past three seasons … if anybody cared.
It might bug someone that before Barbee, Auburn had lost as many as 20 games in a year only once … if anybody cared.
They might not like that last year, Barbee’s team set a school record with 23 losses … if anybody cared.
It might bother someone that Auburn lost Wednesday night 78-67 to Tennessee for the school’s 13th straight loss to an SEC team … if anybody cared.
It might be worth pointing out Auburn hasn’t made the NCAA tournament since 2003, which was three coaches ago … if anybody cared.
Of course, Barbee can celebrate this little tidbit – as bad as his team was last year, it beat Alabama. That might bother somebody in Tuscaloosa … if anybody cared on Alabama’s campus.
