    Maybe we should all go "moo".

    When you wake up tomorrow, you will still be Alabama fans. Roll Tide. Time for spring football.

    Re: OFFICIAL POSTGAME THREAD - Bama v. UK...

    While I have attempted to read the basketball threads and keep up with all the "what if" scenario's with CAJ regarding should he stay another year, recruiting class coming in, etc I still don't have a good vibe as to what will/should/could happen next year with our team. Just flat out confused after watching this team this year.

    Couple of questions should a coaching change occur......Should CAJ leave on his own or not, what does it do to the reputation of the program? Does it cost current signed recruits or potential recruits? Should CAJ leave who do we want and do we have a legitimate chance of landing that coach? Please point me to other threads if these questions can better be answered reviewing those versus answering in this thread. RTR

    This team just didn't seem to have good energy game to game. Relying on a kid who ought to be in high school to start at point guard doesn't usually bode well. It hurts even more when your best perimeter scorer regresses into a pretty severe sophomore slump. Johnson didn't have a great season as a coach with all the differing rotations and starting lineups. Frankly though he was grasping for straws and looking for any possible answer to what ailed this team.


    It is concerning that we're at the end of year four and he's went 8-10 three times in the SEC and 10-8 once. We're likely heading towards his 3rd first round NIT exit. Colin Sexton was easily one of the most talented players we've had on the court since Mo Williams and all that netted was a single NCAAT win. Avery Johnson has been a better ambassador for the program and he's not been scared of the shadow Nick Saban and Alabama football casts over all other sports here. He's raised the profile of the program a bit from where it had fallen by the end of the Grant era but still really that much better off? Other than the excitement Colin Sexton demonstrated in flashes last season, this has basically been the same Alabama basketball product we've languished in since 2006.

    Agreed . . .and what have we seen to make us think next season will be different in the better direction? This team had enough talent to be upper-third of the SEC. . it was sorely lacking in preparation.

    Seeing the way the team started playing in January had given me hope; but, as much hope as that garnered, this late season swoon was even worse.

    CAJ has shown he can recruit - in flashes. His teams have shown that they can play with anyone - in flashes. What we haven't seen is player development and consistency in playing at a high level.

    The most consistency we've had over these past four years is INconsistency.

    I really like CAJ; but, IMO, if he's to stay on as coach the school needs to see an improved and more consistent effort on the court. What we've seen is NOT the best that Alabama basketball can be.

    Re: OFFICIAL POSTGAME THREAD - Bama v. UK...

    I took my wife out for dinner last night. I didn't even record the game to watch later. Got the notification that we lost by a significant margin during dinnner and it didn't even phase me.

    I know we've knocked the situation around from about just every possible angle. How many times has our leading scorer come off the bench? I know it happened the last two games in the tourney. It strikes me that we are either so inconsistent that we don't have 5 players that stand out enough to get the best 5 on the floor OR that we just don't have 5 good players OR that we don't have a coach that can figure that out and help 5 guys play as a unit. I figure it's some of every one of those.

    Getting a combined 12 pts out of Norris, Lewis, Jones and Petty is ridiculous. Not going to win many games with that output from those 4 players.

    Kira kinda cratered near the end of the season. It's no accident that we were playing better when he was playing better.

    I've said it's an indictment on Avery's coaching that the best two players we've had the last two years were true freshmen and they both didn't really get better as the season went on.

    Disagree, we should play as many games as we can to get Kira Lewis and John Petty ready for next season where they will need to be the stars of the team.
