    Stage is being set for playoff expansion

    Sounds like more will be shared in the coming weeks after the official committee meetings in Chicago next week. Lot of places are reporting though 12 teams is the leading concept should expansion happen. I think I’m one of the few people here actively in favor of expansion. But I figured 6-8...

    Alabama-Oklahoma State Home -and- Home

    At least the Notre Dame game that year was pushed back to 2030. But this means we currently have a schedule in 2028 of: Week 2 - Ohio St in TTown Week 4 - @ Oklahoma St Maybe we can also get Oregon St scheduled and go for the OSU clean sweep!

    Keilan Robinson enters the Transfer Portal

    Shame, I expected big things from this kid. Even without him though, the RB room is probably the most stacked pos group on the team. Nothing wrong with him looking for a place with more opportunities. Or with him following a coach he already has a relationship with to a school implementing a...

    Bama Game Thread: Official Postgame Thread - Bama vs. UCLA...

    Nightmare ending to a dream season. We had every chance to win that game and couldn’t get out of our own way. Officiating down the stretch was some of the worst I’ve ever seen, but it was the free throws, rebounding and turnovers that cost us the game. We blew the best chance at a championship...

    How far can this team make it in the NCAAT

    I think it’s realistic to say we can beat any team in the tournament except maybe Gonzaga or Baylor. The question will be how many games can we string together where we either play our A game, or that our talent will give us enough of a cushion where we can win regardless. In my bracket I have...

    Indianapolis Questions - Open Forum

    Unless something changes right beforehand, each game is looking at 25% capacity I’ve heard family, university staff, workers and medical personnel count against the 25%. So probably 15-20% capacity will be the actual GA attendance for tickets sold.

    See CBS for the selection show...

    My thoughts exactly. I haven’t watched Iona play, but you can bet a Pitino squad will play hard and be well coached. Hopefully we just outclass them with talent for an easy win. UCONN/MD would both have to play an A game and we’d have to play poorly, but both of them have a shot. UCONN would...

    Indianapolis Questions - Open Forum

    Since this year is unique and the whole tournament will be here in my stomping grounds, I thought I’d toss out an offer to answer any questions for those thinking about coming to some games. I’ve lived all over Indianapolis and it’s suburbs the last 20 years, so I know the area extremely well...

    Lunardi: Bama hunted for #1 seed but ended up with a #2...

    100% spot on. Plus we’ll either be the bottom 1 or the top 2, meaning we’ll be in the same exact bracket in the end anyways. Nothing wrong with the committee going in another direction and giving the team an extra chip on its shoulder. We also don’t really have the signature non-conf W you’d...

    Bama Game Thread: Official Postgame Thread - Bama vs. LSU...

    Man, I’ve sat through some tense football games, but I’ve never wanted a game more than I wanted that one. What a gutsy win and clutch performance. Lot of moments we could have caved, but Shack, Herb, JQ and Keon kept us above water. I said it in another thread, but I’ll say it again. I just...

    Bama Game Thread: Official Postgame Thread - Bama vs. LSU...

    Its been a while since I’ve looked at the rules. If I recall correctly though, an in bounds off a dead ball has to be thrown within the half court. If it’s out of a time out, which that was, it can be the inbounded anywhere on the court. Regardless he was a step over the line and it happened...

    Your 2021 SEC Tournament Champions – The Alabama Crimson Tide

    Being born in ‘92, I missed the golden age of Bama basketball. For a while I wondered if I’d ever see us win an SEC championship, until now. I knew preseason this group had the chance to be special, and they far exceeded my expectations. Thank you to Coach Oates and this group of vets that...

    General SEC Tournament Thread...

    This is 100% correct. Only tournament champions get auto bids. Regular season champ means little more than bragging rights and seeding in the conference tournament. Considering though the regular season champ typically has the best record in the league, they are usually enough of a lock for the...

    Post Season Prediction Thread - Prognosticators only :)

    This team is going to be one of the hardest teams in the tournament to predict. On one hand, we have the coaching, talent and experience to make it to the Final Four. In fact I think we are every bit as talented as the Auburn team that made a run in ‘19. On the other hand, this team has yet to...

    Lunardi: Bama hunted for #1 seed but ended up with a #2...

    I think we finally know how Kansas fans must have felt in ‘07 when the football team started 11-0 and got up to #2 in the country. I’m sure all the people in Kansas who know what a football is (all 6 of them) were over the moon.
