The energy and enthusiasm I feel on campus for this university and our athletics programs is unmatched anywhere I’ve been. I want this student section to be the most exciting and hostile environment in all of college basketball. Our coaches, staff and team can’t wait to see you in Auburn Arena on Oct. 30.”
