Same SEC records, different perspectives for Auburn, Georgia

That's a picture of Quick Change, tonight's halftime entertainment at the Auburn-Georgia basketball game. If you haven't seen it yet, it will blow your mind.

Oh, there's also a varsity basketball contest apparently. I wrote a story in advance of it in today's newspaper. Here's how it starts:

AUBURN, Ala. — Georgia and Auburn enter tonight’s game at Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum with 2-6 SEC records, the victims in several tightly-contested games.

Only one can feel somewhat good about its current situation.

While first-year Georgia coach Mark Fox has earned plaudits for making the Bulldogs (11-12) competitive in almost every league game, Jeff Lebo’s detractors at Auburn (10-11) grow in number with each close loss, the rumblings for a coaching change starting to gain momentum after six mediocre seasons.

“It’s basketball,” Lebo said. “You are going to have a ton of close games. You can’t get too high, and you can’t get too low. You have to put it behind us. You don’t worry about what’s in the past whether it is good or bad, wins or losses. You just focus on what’s lying ahead of you, and that is what we are continuing to do.”
