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

    I love Alabama basketball and watch them whenever they are on TV. I'll admit though, I'm no where near as knowledgeable about basketball and the history of basketball as I am about football because I don't follow it as closely. The problem I have with the basketball board here on TideFans is that unless you are 100% knowledgeable about b-ball and can quote stat after stat you are basically told to stay on the football board so, that is what I do (unless it is to say "great game", "good win", or "tough loss"). Some of the hardcore b-ball fans here are a little harsh at times towards those who are not as hardcore IMO so, why bother. I mean no offense to anyone, just stating how I feel and why I don't post much on the b-ball board.

    I am a basketball season ticket holder....support this year has been decent so far. I tend to think that Coleman is a good venue. I think basketball excitement doesn't build in the early season because of the typically very poor home schedule.

    Yes I agree but we need to stop losing our home games. Easier said than done but nothing keeps people away faster than a lack off success. I think Dayton was pretty good though and I think this team has some potential.

    When football is completely over, my interest in basketball will increase. Until then I only having a slight interest.
    Basketball’s biggest problem is the best part is the last 5 minutes.
    Due to the current workload, the light at the end of the tunnel will be temporarily turned off.

    UAB's IMO - Blah. Went there for a hoops game or two and the SEC Gymnastics Championship a few years back. I think it is cookie cutter. The half-filled with UAB mopes situation might be part of it.

    I went to the Bama-Oke St. game last year and I had truly forgotten what a great hoops site the BJCC is. Great crowd for that game. It was disapointing the crowd was so crappy for the SEC/Big East Challenge in '07. Had a blast at the game but I was one of a few.

    We were badly crippled with Engstrom and Steele out. Unfortunately, it doesn't look good for a quick return of Steele, who's had bad injury luck his whole career. I have hopes that, with ten days rest, Carl will be back...

    If this team is dependent on Engstrom and Steele for success, then we are done for the year.

    Not meant to be a knock on those guys, but in year 4 of CAG, we should be WELL past that point

    I love Alabama but I've never been a big fan if basketball. I gave up years ago. We've been to the elite eight (the farthest any Bama team has ever advanced) once only to get stomped by the eventual national champ UCONN. The sweet 16 is about the best we can do as Alabama has proven time and time again. We will never be the top dog in SEC mens basketball. We are a football school.

    IF you support The University, why are you not wanting excellence in all endeavors?
    Since you disliked my post (as well as others) I'm assuming you're implying that I'm one of the ones you think revels in the fact that I'm not a supporting the BB team. That's not true. As my post said, I wish all of Alabama's sports well and I hope they win every game. That doesn't mean I have to be a fan of many of them and doesn't mean that I have to follow them. We have a basketball forum for people who want to discuss basketball.

    I'm as equally puzzled why people have such a problem discussing our biggest rival that we play every year and recruit against every day in the sport of football on the football board forum...

    It was also on Espn3. Sometimes there are blackout issues with that but it was working here in SC.

    Sip this was poorly timed. If casual fans actually got interested and turned on the Dayton game they will think we are terrible and probably not watch another game. Haven't seen that bad of defense out of a team under Grant in a while. It was pretty tough to watch at times as they ran down the court and beat the press over and over.

    I hope the women's soccer team wins the national championship, but don't ask me to watch any of their matches. Does that make me a bad Alabama fan?
