    3-19 vs 9-17 in three pointers. 16% vs 53% The zone kills Alabama. Other teams have players who can catch and shoot. I hope not, but this could be another year of waiting for shooters to arrive with the next class.

    Agreed.

    While I don't want to lose to a team from the Colonial, I can understand losing to one that is very good and has experienced veterans. This game was just bad. It's the type performance that will leave a very bad taste in fans' mouths and is ammo to those that like hot seat talk.

    I thought Bama's defense was pretty good early while the offense took just under 5 minutes to score a point. Bama allowed Northeastern to put them to sleep.

    I don't even know what to say.

    How can we (year after year) be so poor at basic fundamentals?

    I like CAJ as far as his passion and enthusiasm goes and he was a phenomenal player.......but I'm not sure that he knows how to coach/teach a team.

    Losses like this should not happen at this point.

    I am glad I forgot about this one. It is going to be a long year.

    I had assumed this game to be a win with two big challenges coming up in the next few days. What a disappointment.
    For some reason I had let myself get hopeful of having only 1 or 2 losses before conference play.

    Why, though?

    The line for the game was 4. ESPN's win probability for Alabama was 68%.

    Again, I'm not happy with the loss. Primarily because the way it happened. Why do some just assume Alabama is going to beat a team like Northeastern, though?

    It seems like we are not developing players. If they have mad skills, we let them play but there isnít a lot of development happening.

    I can take a loss, even a blowout loss, but the lack of hustle and display of no sense of urgency is hard to handle. This team is not near talented enough to coast. They better be able to play their A Game every night. Shooting comes and goes, but DEFENSE Travels! They better learn how to defend against the 3 point shot. Pitiful performance all the way around.

    I want so bad for Bama basketball to be good again and fun to watch. But it's just not happening! Another year of watching bad shooting and sub par ball.

    Well, I can only speak for myself, but CAJ has been in T-town long enough to recruit a few solid classes, and we have some seasoned vets who should know how to bring consistent effort to the court for each game. I was hoping that we were to the point where we could assume that we will beat a team like this. Unfortunately, it seems that we are not. One game does not a season make, but this is definitely one that leaves a bad taste and makes me think in the back of my mind, "Oh no, here we go again." It's funny because I was just watching the Purdue v. App St. game and was wanting to see how Purdue was doing against them when I saw today's Bama score. I felt a bit deflated.

    Who likes hot seat talk.....I know I don't. And I'm sure I'm one of the folks you were aiming that at. But -- geez.....this game is about progress.....and I'm not sure how much progress we are seeing. We still have no scorers.....the freshman can, but he's young. MAYBE Ingram -- but he has no touch.....so it's more bull in china shop as he drives the lane.

    When Bama has been good is when we have 2-3 people who can score consistently. We just don't have that. I put that on Avery.....

    Bad effort and lack of focus throughout the game. NE could move the ball around. Our offensive movement was way too slow. Donte Hall was invisible. Hopefully, we will improve.
