If Coach Oats is happy, I'm happy. I personally don't care.. I haven't been to a bball game since the Gottfried era. I just want the program to be successful and live up to what I believe is its immense potential.
I believe the University/boosters/alumni have the resources to get a new arena built. The question has always been does it have the will? Well, Coach Oats is showing us what having an elite program looks like, something we haven't truly seen since the 1980s. Is a new arena a requirement to ensure he is in Tuscaloosa for a very long time?
I am of the opinion that we've been too eager to throw money at the football program. I get the economics. I still disagree some of this last round was necessary at all.
