    I know this may sound "defeatist" -- but I would almost prefer the Mid-Major approach -- less elite talent, team approach, "George Mason" style -- and have a great team every 3 years..... than what we are doing now.

    Sorry for being negative -- just grumpy

    Missed this game but was shocked by the score. Iím a longtime Bama fan and I miss when were relevant like we were in the Wimp days. Iím beginning to wonder if Iíll ever see a truly great basketball team at Bama again in my lifetime.

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.
    I can understand this, which is why I asked for an elaboration.

    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.....
    You know what I mean. There are some fans that will never be satisfied and call for a coachís job the moment things start to look bleak even though they provide zero solutions other than ďFire him! He lost to ______!!Ē

    For the guy who mentioned App St and Purdue above, Purdue was in control the entire game by 20+ points in the 2nd half.

    It would be pitiful for the entire front court to only score 2 points versus Duke, mich less Northeastern. One of my big wishes when Pelphrey was brought on was to develop solid big men, and that isn't happening.

    I know losing Sexton was tough, but I thought we had enough returning players that the drop-off wouldn't be that severe. Seems like we're just trying to out-athlete more fundamentally sound teams. I don't get the sense that many of the players know their roles within the offense or defense, and they lose their composure when the other team dictates tempo as Northeastern did. This looks like the Bama team that lost 5 or 6 in a row going into the SEC tournament and relied on a single transcendent player to get them to the NCAA. The pieces are there for a good team. Hope CAJ knows how to get this turned around. It is early, so let's hope they learn from this loss.

    I forgot about it too until a guy mentioned it during my lunch break. Came home to set the DVR. Wish I had just enjoyed lunch.

    Disappointed but I didn't expect this year to be better than last year. We lost a quality guy to the NBA in Collin Sexton.
    Basketball is my first love, so going through these years of not having a solid basketball team at Alabama is really frustrating as a fan. I hope in the future, we can establish some sort of program that makes us a championship team.

    I'd settle for guys looking like they are coached well and that perform because of it.

    Sometimes it doesn't even look like we run actual offensive plays.... or if we do and the D makes us reset we just dribble around the perimeter before a last minute bad shot selection is forced.

    We can't seem to even handle switching on defense. On Ball.....Off Ball.... doesn't matter. Guys look completely lost at times.

    And sweet baby in a manger we are perennially TERRIBLE as Free Throw shooting. I know that wasn't so much an issue for this game but it's an ongoing problem.

    I feel like we have a good group of young talented players and we aren't evenly remotely coaxing the best out of them.

    We should have seeded higher last year and made the Sweet 16 AT LEAST with a player like Sexton.

    I mean I realize we can't just keep firing coaches but if this year goes how it looks like it's going to go then CAJ is probably going to have a worse 4-year resume than CAG.

    I apologize for being negative too but it's getting so frustrating. I want our Basketball Program to be at least 'Good' again. To somewhat compete for an SEC Title or Win a SEC Tourney or make a Sweet 16.

    So... does this mean the season is over? If you get blown out by a team like this how do you expect to win many SEc games?

    As negative as I'm feeling, I have to remind myself: 1) Coach Johnson seems to struggle with determining player lineups and rotations, especially early in the season; 2) Bama players need to gel and get comfortable as best point guard is new and 3) Northeastern has very experienced players with plenty of time playing together.

    Turnovers were down and shot selection wasn't awful; things can change quickly once the shots start to go in. Still a little to much hesitation in getting shots off.

    I'll probably watch Ball State game after recording it.
