So does anybody really give a damn about this game tonight? I mean, seriously, after the crushing loss to Auburn on Saturday, Bama basketball has gone down the tubes.
Now, the good thing is that it will put Gottfried back in the role he's most comfortable with -- the underdog. Nobody expects this team to get up off the mat after being beaten down. They've lost 4 of 5. Nobody gives them a shot. They're playing the two teams tied for first in the SEC West. They'll never make the tourney.
Remember a team that was 7-7 to start out last season? Just lost Chuck Davis. Didn't have a prayer.
Well, now we have a team that's 6-8 to start the conference season. Just lost Ronald Steele. Doesn't have a prayer.
Of course, this year's team is a little bit different that last year's, but the pieces are still there. Hopefully the team hasn't quit. Tonight's game will make or break this season. Another loss at home and they're history. A win and there's renewed hope. I refuse to make a prediction. Sorry fellas.
