    With Alabama’s season on brink, Avery Johnson is facing criticism and asking question

    Click

    This sounds like a bunch of last minute, desperation moves to save the season - and possibly his job.

    I can't actively cheer against my team.....but....

    I'm pretty nervous that we'll make a run to the SEC Tourney Title game and squeak into the NCAA Tourney..... get a favorable Round 1 matchup.... advance to the Field of 32 and THEN get bounced....

    Which might actually save CAJ's job IF he still wants it.

    Though I would hope we wouldn't be stupid enough to extend his contract.

    I will always cheer for Bama, but I do not see us getting past Ole Miss, much less UK. However, I think CAJ's job is probably safe this year because we don't want to pay the buyout. We've already overpaid for CAJ's results, so paying the buyout would only make it worse. Unless we have a guy who we think is a can't miss hire, I imagine that we will just hope CAJ can do better next year.

    First off, ain't happening.

    Second, in a CBB season full of tawdriness, wiretap testimony, blowed-out one-and-done megastar high-tops, and 'Bama ineptitude on possession after possession, I cannot say how much joy seeing the "minnows" such as Fairly Ridiculous (Farleigh Dickinson), Northern Kentucky, Wofford (! - enrollment 1,500), Gardner-Webb Bulldogs, and those other "dogs" that blew 'Bama's doors off, the Northeastern University Huskies, plus that budding two-sport dynasty, the NoDakota State Bison, get into the Dance.

    I can't cheer against us either. It just is against my nature, but another year of mediocrity would be my limit. Who will we have next year? It is likely Giddens and Ingram are gone as grad transfers. We have a few kids coming in that are all clones of one another-hybrid guys 6-5 to 6-7 guys who are athletic. We'll have no presence inside unless Smith or Fleming develop. Who knows what happens with Reese. Jones and Petty are guys full of potential not realized at this point. Kira can't be a one man team.

    I hear if we make the tourney, Coach Johnson is staying, if not he is going. UA will not be letting him go unless I miss my read of Greg Byrne completely so we have to rely on him moving on of his own volition. I have supported Coach until recently, but we show we have the talent to beat almost any team, then again we can be so bad any team good or bad can beat us on any given day if we don't show up. Raise your hand if you know which team shows up for the game.

    Doesn't look like Giddens will be playing tomorrow. Anyone remember when he got injured?

    It was two games back, but, TBF, our opponents just blend into one another in my mind. It happened on a rebound. He came away holding his hand, palm up and was in obvious pain. However, I think he played on. I'm a bit surprised it's bad enough to keep him out...

    He avoided saying he'd be back...

    Yeah, he went to the locker room during the Auburn game. Looked like he was in pain.

    He came out right after, looked like he was at a 8 or 9 on a scale level of pain by his face.

    I think Giddens hurt his hand blocking the ball. His hand came down hard on the ball while it was still in the shooter's (potential shooter?) hand. He was in pain immediately and I was thinking maybe his thumb or a finger got bent or jammed.
