We've had some terrible threads this past week but this one tops them all.
I agree that both men's and women's basketball are under-achieving. I'm not so sure, however, that a change in the AD's office would fix that.
You've advocated firing Mal Moore. That's a pretty radical position. But I respect your tenure here, and your previous posts, so I'm willing to listen. Please tell us:
1. What, specifically, is wrong with the current administration, especially given 4 NCs and a near miss on a fifth in the immediately preceding year,
2. Who, specifically, you would suggest starting over with, and
3. Why you believe the specifically named person would do a better overall job than the incumbent, Mal Moore.
It's one thing to advocate a change in a fit of private piqué. It's entirely another to act on the short-term emotion and live with the long-term consequences.
A publicly-stated position like this, from a person of your stature, begs more than a little explanation.

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
Look- no one is more disappointed in where the basketball program now resides. There are many reasons for that. I will give Mal Moore credit for a couple of things- he went out and hired what was considered to be one of the best coaches available in Anthony Grant. Spent decent money doing it as well. Then built him a state of the art practice facility. That is pretty good support from a "football" guy. Showing up at more games would be good but probably will not happen. I would blame him for the basketball team's mediocre to bad performance.
ok, so why is this still in the football forum
