The Hogs blew another halftime lead last night. This time it was Auburn that rallied from an eight point half-time deficit to win going away 75-62. The Hogs even won that all-important first 4-5 minutes of the second half and actually led by nine with 15 and a half minutes to play when Courtney Fortson missed two free throws that could have given the Hogs an 11 point lead. Instead, Auburn went on a 15-2 run over the next five and a half minutes to take the lead for good.
"I hate Auburn! The whole state of Auburn can go to hell!... and Alabama also! We are going to kill Kentucky on Saturday. Billy Gillespie is a dead man! If we do lose to Kentucky on Saturday, I am going to run all these players until I puke!" said Pelphrey after the game.
The Razorbacks are now 13-9 with Kentucky coming to visit on Saturday. I just have a feeling that the way the Hogs have been playing that it will all click together on Saturday once again and Kentucky will go home a loser.
