At the onset of the season, Auburn announced its self-imposed ban on the postseason. Coach Bruce Pearl’s team has been haggling with the NCAA the past couple of seasons. Pearl hasn’t been cooperative. But he wins, so Auburn doesn’t dare confront him on the matter. Instead, War Eagle decided to skip March Madness in 2021, knowing it’s a low revenue season. Auburn wants to be back in contention next season when fans are expected back. By contrast, Florida is fighting for a Big Dance Bid. The Gators are on the bubble with the College Basketball lines.
