    What I do not, cannot, never will, understand is that segment that calls themselves Alabama fans, yet not only has no interest in sports like Basketball - they seem to REVEL in rubbing their lack of support in people's faces.


    IF you support The University, why are you not wanting excellence in all endeavors?

    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.
    You're a great fan my man!

    Everybody likes a winner. The softball team packs the stadium when they play...so does gymnastics.

    I find it hard to get into basketball until football is over with, I keep up with them that's about it until after January.

    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?
    The 4 better arena's are in no particular order are, Auburn,s USA's, UAB's, and the BJCC. I've been in the arenas at USA, UAB and the BJCC. Haven't been in Aubies new arena, but I can only assume it is better. I hear there is a nice one in Huntsville as well, but I haven't been there so I don't know.

    I was under the impression that Alabama was one of the better BB teams at home (struggle on the road), and that you had very good turnout for your home games. Is this not true?

    Alabama has the potential to be a really good team, we're just a quality big man away. Lacey, Releford, Cooper, Randolph, those guys are awesome but you can't win consistently with just great guards. We've come light years since Gottfried was here. Once CAG can find a good big man we'll be right there. As it is, we'll win a few games this year we shouldn't but we'll also lose some we shouldn't (like against Dayton).

    FWIW, I've been following Alabama b'ball for years. I remember being in the stands when Leon Douglas was on his official visit and they passed out cards telling us to chant "We want Leon" when they announced he was at the game.

    I noticed that Anderson and co. had Bud Walton nearly filled. We are heading that way imo.

    It's a small arena but Troy just opened a new one this year.

    I agree completely. I can understand if someone doesn't particularly like a certain sport, but there is no need to get on a message board and celebrate the fact that you don't like/support that sport.
