    Re: OFFICIAL POSTGAME THREAD - Bama v. The Barn...

    Not sure what to say about this one ... tough (preventable) loss. So many factors ... when these guys are on, they are tough to beat ... but when they are off ... they are simply tough to watch. I still hope they make the tourney but realistically I can't see them making a significant run without figuring out how to get back to putting together a complete game.

    Can't believe that I'm saying this but, watching this team this season feels like I just watched the Barners 2018 football season ...

    All I know is, if CAJ sticks around he has to dedicate double-time to coaching up the talent he has, and not just trusting the talent is at a point to where they can get it done. And the players have to dedicate themselves to getting better as individuals AND as a team.

    Said what I had to say for the night, bring on Arky

    Program is simply done. This year and for the foreseeable future. Really nothing to hang a hat on any longer.

    Because we are coached by Avery Johnson- hands down the worst coach in the SEC and it is not even close. Time for people to get their head out of the sand.

    There is no next year. Program is pretty much done.

    We fall apart and make silly mistakes in the final minutes of every close game.

    Talent <> Team

    Would much rather have less talented players who aren't trying to "make the league" but who play together as a team for multiple years. I _HATE_ the modern brand of college basketball. Not fun to watch _at all_ for me anymore.

    For the life of me I don't understand how this "team" isn't something like 25-5 or better.

    A Coke and a big smile "ain't getting it done".

    I like to watch Alabama Basketball; and I like to watch a well coached basketball team give good effort. Because of this point of view; I have found myself watching not a lot of Bama basketball this year; and when I did I have been mostly disappointed.

    My first Alabama-Auburn was 1973 at Coleman (way up in the nose bleed seats with my youth basketball team). I have been in love with Bama basketball ever since. I been to some big Bama basketball games, but for me there was always something special about whipping Auburn in Coleman.

    This was sickening for me last night. Even up by double digits, it was clear the inevitable “keystone cops” routine of a team absolutely clueless to the fundamentals of the game would appear and bring Auburn back into the game.

    I’m not one to scream “fire the coach” at a whim, but I’m done. Byrne and this administration needs to decide about were they stand in commitment to excellence with this basketball program. I usually attend a half a dozen home games a year, and would have been there last except for an 8 pm tip with an early morning flight today. I won’t go back until I see something change.

    I know its coaching but discipline more than anything. The ridiculous amount of turnovers in the most in opportune times make it hard to evaluate the coaching. When these mental lapses and errors are being committed by your starters and you cant turn to others on the bench to enforce discipline you have got a mess on your hands.

    To have played and coached in the NBA as long he has he cant be this bad strategically. But the discipline structure looks like that of a mediocre NBA team.

    I’m completely with you. CBball is simply unwatchable to me. It’s really just a better attended NBA D-league. I think the best bet will be the 18 yo can go but if you go to college you go at least 3 years. I think baseball is like that IIRC but the one and done has destroyed it for me. That’s just my opinion but I find it shared especially with the fans as they get older. The younger fans have grown up with this brand but it’s so different from what I grew up with.

    Exactly. That IS the baseball model and IT WORKS.

    I think instead of being done, like many here feel, I think I'm indifferent. I sort of think that is worse than being done. I hate that I feel so blah about it.

    As Earle started many responses this basketball season, “what might have been..”

    Think about it. Last night....winnable. LSU game at home -winnable. Tennessee in Knoxville-winnable. TAMU at home -(ugh) winnable. Georgia State -(ugh) winnable. Baylor and UCF both winnable.

    Go 4-3 in those games and look at the perception of this season. And I submit that difference in those games was coaching and preparation. And that will be the difference most likely between the NCAA and the NIT for us.
