Exactly. They'll be a sub 75 RPI team at the end of the year if they can get all those guys healthy and possibly even get Reed and Purifoy eligible. We'd be in for a heck of a battle if they had all their players. They are going to be a handful for years to come.

They do add what should be two impact newcomers-the #1 JUCO recruit and a 4 star forward that was rated #61 nationally in last year's class.

That would be TJ Dunans and Horace Spencer. Bowers was also the #1 JUCO recruit when they got him. They have talent but very little experience.

Auburn's best advantage is home court. Our best advantage is roster continuity. Auburn isn't decimated with injuries, but there are some trouble spots. I don't know who will be the backup point and the wings will be pretty thin, but the frontcourt will still be a strength. We can beat Auburn even if they are full strength, and the depth issue tips the scales our way a little more.

We stunk it up on the road last year. UAB has a lot to prove in this game.

I'm with most of the others. We were abysmal on the road last year. A lot of that can be attributed to youth and inexperience with each other. However, until we prove otherwise, we still suck on the road. On paper, this is a game we should win, and I think we are the better team. But again, the fact this is an away game is a huge deal.

All this talk about the Auburn game. We shouldn't be overlooking that we have an exhibition game next Friday against the mighty Cal State East Bay. Last year should have taught us not to overlook exhibition games.

It's good that they don't actually count for anything.

Looking at East Bay's roster, they do have some height, including a 7'0 senior transfer from Santa Clara University.
