    Its almost impossible to sustain basketball and football at a high level at the same school for a long period of time. Not sure why that is though. I would much prefer to have out football program where it is.

    Look at Alabama in the 1970s, ok?

    Well, true but still we have more than just football and basketball going on. Baseball has been down too but we have sports that have won it all too, or close to it.
    ROLL TIDE!

    Yep, and I'm also aware that CAG was considered good enough to replace Billy Donovan as the Gator HC when BD was gonna be the Magic coach. That was on the heels of the Gators back o back NCs.

    BTW, Cag has taken us to the final game of the NIT, that's pretty competitive.

    This truly is the golden age of Alabama athletics. Just look at all the accomplishments in 2012 with more to come.

    You're right and it isn't. I should of used a better word but compared to our FB program, for which the OP is seeming to do, it certainly is night and day.

    i gave up long ago hoping to have ALL of our programs on top at once. It just doesn't happen. Would it be nice? Sure it would but the odds of that happening are slim to none. However we have done great in many of the other programs so I'm not sure where the OP's Mal Moore angst is coming from. A bit short-sided to pin the BB program all on Mal's feet when so many other programs are doing good winning championships and being competitive.

    As long as our AD makes solid hires and does his part I don't have an issue. I can't blame injuries, team chemistry or the weather on Mal Moore and neither should anyone else. The man has done a lot for the University and to say he should be fired because our BB is not what we had hoped is just crazy talk IMHO.

    How many basketball championships did we win in the 70s? That's my point. And success wasn't even really sustained throughout both even then.

    I believe that you are doomed to disappointment.

    It's not? I hate to see it when it is then.
