    Re: Alabama at UCF (yes, that UCF)

    It seems to be the same dance. We win some and have some positive mojo flowing, and then we have a stinker (Northeastern). We win some and seem to be back in a good flow, and then we lose a stinker (UCF). At least we seemed to have some effort in this one. Get to back to work, fellas.

    Alabama at UCF (yes, that UCF)

    Hate to harp on this, but how can a team win when the opposition shoots more FTs in one half than it did in the entire game?

    21-4 FT difference in the second half. Thatís absurd.

    Like I said earlier, itís expected and Alabama benefits from it at times, too. Still find it completely wrong for the game.

    The first 10 minutes of the game was more of a reason Alabama lost than FTs. I just would like to see some consistency.

    If you woke up this morning and were told Alabama out rebounds by 17, has more bench points, second chance points, points in the paint, and more assists, youíre going to say Alabama wins, right?

    It's why I have such a hard time following the sport anymore. It's wrong. It's not bad officiating; it's malicious officiating.

    You are absolutely correct, we don't have an alpha. Colin was that guy last year. Retin was the guy 4 years ago. Hall should be the guy this year since he is a senior and the most experienced player on the team. I think Lewis will be that guy given some more time.

    The officiating was about as bad as it could get last night with horrible calls on both sides of the court. UCF got away with 2 flagrant fouls that were called as regular fouls instead. I believe both of them were against Donta, the first when a UCF poppped him in the mouth with his elbow and the second when a UCF player grabbed him and slung him to the ground. The second might have been a bit of acting on Donta's part but the replay wasn't clear and it should have been a flagrant foul. I saw a few bad calls in our favor, once when Dazon (?) shot the ball and the UCF player blocked it cleanly and they called a foul on the UCF player. I agree with others that bad officiating makes it difficult to watch college basketball which is a shame because college basketball used to be so exciting.

    i have faith in the team.. however we gotta get the right roster out there. this one is not it. having a true, experienced PG would really make a huge difference.

    Re: Alabama at UCF (yes, that UCF)

    The inside guys need to be taught to jump into a big player when they take it up instead of fading away and giving him space to block the shot. Smith faded away on a jump hook and hit nothing but air. The big UCF player (Fall) was a definite impact on defense but he could have been fouled out with a little better play on Bama's side.

    Hall passed up on a couple of shots (one when he had to be less than 2 feet from the basket) when the big UCF player was on the bench. This made no sense but was likely carryover from a couple of earlier blocks by UCF.

    Mack struggle to fit in again and only played 14 minutes. Petty did not shoot well at all. I'm still expecting points game-in-and-game-out from these two.

    Lewis had 14 points and I think 12 came in the 2nd half. He wants the other players to score but at some point earlier in the game, he needs to put up more shots. He leads the team in scoring now.

    The first 5-8 minutes of the game was a jumbled mess for Bama's offense. I don't know if it was the lineup or just a slow start at getting comfortable with the game.

    I'm scared to read the earlier comments.

    This was pitiful to watch. I literally recorded it, waited about an hour, and fast forwarded thru most of the game. I just couldn't bring myself to watch it.

    I'll add: something is terribly wrong when your leading scorer (and arguably best player) is a 17 year old that really ought to be playing HS basketball this season.

    Kira's going to be a really good player, but the fact he's our best one right now is mystifying.

    I lost interest years ago (played in HS one year) when it became ďbodyball ď. Our pickup games at the park were cleaner than any organized b-ball today, and back then if it didnít draw blood or break something it wasnít a foul.

    I think the officials should let the teams play and call it fairly for both sides. It's the bias for one side over the other that bugs the stew out of me, plus they call so many fouls the flow of the game is constantly interrupted. The continual going to the monitor to review drives me crazy in both basketball and football. This may be more so in football than in basketball but I get very annoyed when a team has no timeouts but the officials continually stops play for several minutes to review something minor giving that team a free timeout. Let the teams play and only call fouls in the most obvious situations and the game of basketball would be much more fun to watch.
