Auburn 66, Alabama 60: Lost season begging to be put out of our misery

Auburn 66, Alabama 60: Lost season begging to be put out of our misery

The Crimson Tide doesn’t deserve a return trip to the NCAA tournament, and it probably doesn’t have to worry about it any more. Gifted yet another opportunity at a quality win to burnish its credentials, Bama couldn’t close the deal against an Auburn team that has struggled to recreate last year’s chemistry and had no road wins of note.

Auburn wrap-up: Necessary or not, Bama makes its statement

Auburn’s strategy was obviously to survive the Alabama first-half storm, keep the game close, then do something heroic in the second half. Such a strategy, though, oversamples early-season results and fails to account for the Alabama of the recent.
