    Plus there's 3X number of teams and there's just not many TV games out of state.

    After watching the game last night, I am not expecting a return trip to the NCAA tournament anytime soon.

    I'm still trying to regain my passion after my personal boycott of the last few years of the Gottfried disaster.
    DISCLAIMER: I hereby reserve the right to discuss any game on the Alabama schedule I wish, at any time during the season, as I am not a part of the Crimson Tide football program. I am simply a fan who has no impact outside of the money I provide the athletic department via ticket and memorabilia purchases and the energy I can provide when I attend the games. 2009-2014, crimsonaudio

    I might start watching basketball if they'll put the pole back under the basket.

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

    As many of you know, I have had season tix for years to Bama Basketball so I support it not just with my money, but my heart too. I have only missed one home game in 2 years. I started going when Mr. Personality David Hobbs was the coach so I've been going for a while now.

    I'll say this, the crowds have been as good as I have ever seen for the fall games. The students are showing up in bigger numbers than I have ever seen. If we can ever put a truly superior product on the court, I think Bama Basketball can co-exist and even thrive at Bama. But we have an athletic administration who has proven time and again they could care less about any sport other than football.

    I have been a major proponent of a new arena for years and have been thoroughly rebuffed on this board for it. We have the 4th or 5th best basketball arena in the state and by far have the most attendance of any team in the state, but that is totally another matter for another thread. We do need something to generate some excitement in our fan base for basketball.

    We have a very average team right now unless we get healthy in a hurry.

    Wow, you really are a fan.

    Which arenas in the state would you say are better?

    Obviously, basketball is always going to be a distant second in this state and in Tuscaloosa. One problem is, especially in years like this, the football team gets all the attention and with the season now running until January 7th instead of New Year's Day, even the early SEC games are ignored.

    What would it take to get more attention from the big wigs for basketball (and baseball)? Are we just going to have to wait until Mal Moore retires?

    Figures. Comcast here took CSS off a couple of months ago. I registered my complaint to no avail.
