Considering Auburn basketball has lost six out of its last seven games and just saw its most important player go down with an injury, I wasn’t expecting a lot of interest in the hardwood Tigers for this week’s Aubserver Mailbag.
I was wrong.
Auburn fans, as they should be, are already looking ahead to next season — when the roster should be deeper, healthier and stronger. This week’s mailbag tackles questions on the future of the starting lineup, plus the incoming combo of Jabari Smith and Trey Alexander.
Then, it’s a dive into some of the usual fun offseason topics, including hypothetical cross-sport lineups, campus comparisons, baseball stadiums and a trio of wrasslin’ questions.
Observer subscribers never fail to bring it in a mailbag, no matter what’s going on in Auburn sports at that. For that, I’m so grateful. Let’s go.
Auburn has the youngest team in the country this season. How have teams with that "title" improved the following season?
