The Advocate in Baton Rouge has a great story about how Bama and LSU will be playing for survival more than the top spot in the West. This game should be better than 'Survivor' because the loser drops to 2-5 in the West. The winner takes a part of the Western division lead.
The Huntsville Times is suggesting that Mykal Riley may not start the LSU game. Surprise surprise. I want to see Steele on the bench as well. I'll take Hollinger and Tubbs in the front court any day of the week.
Mark Edwards, of the Decatur Daily, states the obvious: Gottfried will rally UA eventually. As always, Mark Gottfried finds some kind of fire to pull his teams together at some point in the season. Everyone should be glad that Bama is off to a bad start, because I'm sure that by the middle of February and on into March, this team will be playing damn good basketball. Even though I haven't seen anything to justify that statement as of yet.
