- Georgetown in Birmingham for the Big East/SEC challenge (Auburn plays West Virginia in the first part of a doubleheader). I believe this is December 5th.
- At Texas A&M (not sure of the date). Luster is lost due to Gillispie leaving for Kentucky.
- Las Vegas Invitational in late December. If things go well I plan on attending this. I've read Iowa State and Purdue are in as well... not sure who the other team is.
- Clemson at home on New Years Day. I'm not sure if this is a "name" school as Clemson has pretty much sucked ever since Rick Barnes left them for Texas.
Being totally honest, our non-conference schedule looks like Georgetown and a bunch of games we should win. A&M loses Acie Law IV and their HC which might push them to middle of the pack Big 12. It's a road game though... and we know how well we play on the road.
- From rolltide.com, Gerald Wallace is NBA Eastern Conference player of the week. Good for him... although I'm curious why the university calls this big news as Wallace was here for a cup of coffee.
EDIT- I didn't want to make another blog post so I added the CMG interview from al.com here.
I'll just say I didn't come away impressed.
