    With The Lull In Football Can We Please Support Basketball?!

    Love Bama hoops. My oldest son a big b-ball fan, and try to make it up for a few games each season. I've been following since the Ansley/Whatley days.

    My fave Bama team from back in the day was the team that had Horry, Cheatham, Sprewell, Robinson, etc. Those guys could have been a final four team with a few breaks.

    I support basketball and with Robert Horry being from my hometown, I have no choice but to. We've had a tough couple of games, especially losing last night at home. We'll bounce back because this is a tourney team!
    ROLL TIDE!

    That is for the Mods to decide and when one of us gets the energy, maybe we will!

    I'm trying to find out when we play Talladega, the best physically conditioned team we'll face. I've heard those guys run like 500 laps a day

    So do most people, they watch 12 regular season games and then the postseason.

    We don't play them at all. They're in an entirely different league (USCAA). But I agree with you that they are a very physical team, and they have multiple NC trophies for their league to prove it.

    I think that this is a good thread and that some people simply don't get the game because they don't understand it. It comes out a lot when they enter a game thread over on the basketball board or they don't know when to cheer and when not to cheer. It is a game of scoring runs (Unless you saw the Georgetown/Tenn. game) and people have a problem with seeing 8 -10 pt. scoring spurts by the other team. However, it is also a game of constant adjustments and usually we pick up a scoring spurt of our own.


    I have to say in my "professional" opinion as a Mod that there is nothing wrong with this post on the football board as a "pre-post-season" thread. Sure beats discussing "White Helmets" or "Names on the Uniforms".

    It beats constantly discussing the athletics at API and the legitimization of that "school down the road"

    Otherwise, we need to keep our mouth's shut if we're not a dominant Basketball team after the Notre Dame game is over.

    I guess I understand the idea that more activity on the basketball forum will encourage the basketball team to play hard and better...

    But I'm kinda hungup on the second point...if you want to criticize the basketball team you'd better start before Jan. 7th...? Criticism from people that only start up after the final football game won't be valid...

    Just pulling your chain here sip, we were in T-town the same time, I'm '72 thru '76.

    The 70's were a great time to be in T-Town indeed.

    Re: With The Lull In Football Can We Please Support Basketball?!

    As much as I prefer college to the NFL, I'm the opposite in basketball. I just find the pro game more interesting because there is greater talent across each roster. College teams with the exception of the very top level has some size or shooting deficiency that kills the whole team. The press is so widely used in college because most teams only have one reliable ball handler on the court. I don't like the short 3pt line or the 35 second clock.


    With that said, I try to attend a few Alabama games and will watch them any time they're on television.

    I used to love college basketball. But it's become all about the tournament and the interest just isn't there for me this time of the year. Plus Gottfried really run the program into the gutter. Another factor that really makes it frustrating to watch is the ineptness of the referees. It's ten times worse than football.
