Alabama travels to Gainesville tonight to play against the Florida Gators. After last year's game, I would say that we match up well against this team, other than the fact that they have a guy shooting 70% from long range this year.
This game could make or break the Tide's season. If you remember the year of the Elite 8 run, we stole a game at #4 Mississippi State that propelled us to the NCAA tournament. Last night I watched Virginia Tech go into Chapel Hill and beat North Carolina in the Dean Dome, so to those that think this game is impossible - boo to you.
Now, at the same time, I have seen NOTHING that shows me that this team can handle an atmosphere like they'll see in Florida tonight. They almost always start out slow, which would be a killer in this case, and they always have a very very very bad stretch with lots of bad decisions and bad ball handling (especially Steele and Riley as of late).
I see little hope for this one, but I am a conspiracy theorist, and the only way I see Alabama making the tournament is by getting a big time road win. This would classify. Of course, I'm also a realist. It shows in my prediction.
Are you going to wish death on the Florida players like you did the Ole Miss players if you lose? # posted by Brad : 1:37 PM
Haha. Yeah, it's a possibility. At least I know the Florida players are better than our guys. That's not the case with Ole Miss. # posted by Memphis Tider : 8:51 AM
Scoreboard says different. And more people believe the scoreboard than believe you. # posted by Brad : 9:48 AM
