    I know. I really don't remember alot of CM's days but I started really following Bama basketball around 1982. I love it as much as football. Was a student from 1988-1993 and watching and going to games was so much fun. NCAA tournament was a given. It was so sad this past weekend that i was looking forward to watching the Birmingham Iron more than our game.

    I have fully accepted the fact that the basketball program "is what it is" and that is a 20-15 (6-7) type program. Apathy sucks but that is where I am with the basketball program.

    Precedent doesn't really give us too much hope. Johnson is 3-12 in the last 5 games of regular season in first 3 years.

    We have not been able to rise above mediocrity in basketball since our last run in with the NCAA. I think there is a corelation that was confirmed for me with the Chuck Person investigation of what it takes to get elite basketball players to come to your school. It’s evident during last CMG and CAG years that those practices weren’t apart of our recruiting strategy based on the level of players we had. We tried to overcome these rightfully self-imposed limitations by hiring a name coach with a NBA pedigree that had some measure of success at that level to recruit at higher level with so far mixed results.

    From day one, I was impressed with CAJ as a person and still like him. And I firmly believe we need a coach with an engaging personality to generate attention to the program when that attention is hard to come by.

    But from day one I have always had this nagging question as to whether coaching ability at the NBA level translated down to college level. IMO, it does not. IMO, NBA coaches are superior psychologists whereas college coaches are superior at skill development and in game strategy. I believe that CAJ has a good eye for raw talent for an NBA player in the making as you would expect most NBA coaches to have. However, I do not believe he has the practice or discipline structure to get the best out of his players. He is our basketball version of Shula.

    It seems that we have become like the Malzahn coached Auburn teams. We start so-so to bad, fans lose hope, January hits and we beat some teams we shouldn’t, optimism returns, then February hits and the wheels fall off.

    We are who we are at this point. It is soo frustrating to watch us implode. This team has talent, but clearly has mental issues. No one has confidence to shoot when we go thru these shooting droughts. We turn the ball over constantly especially when the game is on the line. I think we turned it over at the end of the game 4 or 5 times. I love Bama basketball, but i am about at my futility limit.

    A change needs to be made, but I just don't think it will happen. I might poke my head in here for the next game, but I will not watch it angers up the blood.

    Turned it over four times in the last eight minutes of the game, which led to six points for TAMU.

    I'm NOT blaming the loss on the officials. Just curious after looking at the stats. Does anyone recall a game where the fouls were pretty much even at 13 to 12 but the FTs were 7 to 16? That was the difference (stat wise) in the game. Alabama made one more FG, and the teams were even on 3PT FGs made. A&M was 15-16 from the line while Alabama shot 4-7.

    This was a game where the team put itself in the situation, not the officials. I'm just amazed to see the fouls so even while the FTA are so skewed.

    I think I'm done. I feel like I did after Alabama lost to Tennessee in 2006; I knew at that point there was no hope for Mike Shula at Alabama as a head coach.

    I really wanted this to work out for Avery Johnson.

    We are traditionally the second best basketball school in the SEC, but after the last 20 years or so, I doubt that's true anymore.

    I don't know what has to happen to return to the days when threatening the SEC tourney is expected, making the NCAA tourney is a given and getting to the sweet 16 is real possible. Those are days long gone right now.

    I'm sure Richard Pitino is already working on his "I'm turning down the Bama job" press release... :-)
