Even when you play bad. I just don't understand how they can look so good one game, and then come out and play flat the next game. Alonzo Gee cannot play defense...period. It's almost pathetic how many times he let that kid shoot open threes yesterday. But, he's also insanely explosive, so there's good with the bad, I suppose.
Riley showed that he is, indeed, only a first year player in the SEC. He ruined two fast break opportunities back to back, but hit lights out from long range, so he corrected a few of his mistakes. He needs to get better for us to be better.
So with the win yesterday, and with Ole Miss winning at Auburn and Kentucky winning at Arkansas, Alabama sits at #1 in the SEC Western Division BY THEMSELVES. We're not tied with anyone...we're just first in the west. Which is disgusting, if you think about it.
Joe McKnight, according to sources, WAS IN TUSCALOOSA ON SATURDAY. He was spotted on campus near the football complex. Good news for us, I suppose.
This week will mark a very important recruiting class for Alabama football. We here at Memphis Tider believe that McKnight, Gibson, Corley, and Lazear will all be signing with Alabama on Wednesday. We may be wrong...but that's what we're hearing.
Alabama plays Mississippi State in basketball on Wednesday night. And man do they ever need to win this one. They've put themselves into a "must win" for most of the remaining games. I can understand dropping one to Florida on the road, but every other game is insanely winnable, even the road games. Pick it up guys.
LSU is just awful. They may have to move Glen Davis to the perimeter and find another post player. That's how bad their shooters are.

I not sure we will even get one of the four you mentioned.
Corley- commited to LSU today.
Mcknight- Most people say he was not in tuscaloosa. I hope he was, but where is your proof. Give me a link or something. We can't just wish him to tuscaloosa.
Gibson- He says he is an alabama fan. Oh Yeah, then why the hell has he not committed to bama yet? I think he may be leaning towards auburn.
Lazear- I think he will be good, and I know he wants to come to bama. have we even offered him a scholarship yet?
I hope we can get the other three ( Corley is no longer a consideration) but i'm not sure we will even land one of 'em. # posted by kyle : 2:25 PM
Gee had 4 steals, Riley was supposed to be covering the white guy who popped all the threes... Riley wasn't getting off screens fast enough to stick the guy, Gee was covering his man. # posted by steven scoggan : 4:58 PM

And it came to pass in the land of the Bammerites..... Reply
It came to pass on the second day of the first week of the second month in the year 100 score and seven, the Bammerites were released from the punishment of wandering in the wilderness for one-quarter score. The Bammerites had been sentenced to this punishment because its leaders did evil in the sight of the NCAA. The Bammerites were weighed in the balance and were found guilty of buying gladiators from the land of Memphis for many pieces of silver and gold. All over the lands scattered amongst the four winds, onlookers were dismayed at this revelation: “Have they not seen? Have they not heard the stern commandment? ‘Thou shalt not purchase gladiators for many pieces of silver and gold?’”
Yea verily, the Bammerites learned little from its punishment from one-half score earlier. It came to pass at that time, the Bammerites suffered through years of plagues brought on because they did evil in the site of the NCAA. The NCAA king smote the Bammerites with many plagues.
“Woe to the Bammerite nation. Ye have grieved the NCAA king. Thou shalt suffer plagues. But ye shall not surely die. Ye shall wish death upon thyselves. Woe unto thee when great crimson boils shall break out upon the buttocks! Woe unto thee when the birds of the air and beasts of the field laugh at your calamity. Woe unto thee when the King of the North, Phillip, shall mock thee and defeat thee year after year. Woe unto thee when Kings from every land defeat thee soundly. Thou shalt travel to a distant land, across a large body of water to find a weaker foe with whom to do battle! Woe unto thee when this foe smites thee!
After the Bammerites had served both of these punishments, pride once again rose up in their hearts. The Bammerite king banished its general, Michael, to the outskirts of Tuscaloserus to live with the lepers. Then it came to pass that the Bammerite king offered much silver and gold to many generals from foreign land to lead the Bammerites into battle.
“Behold what madness has possessed thee? Flee from our presence! We want nothing to do with you or your land!”
King Malvious, then paid visit to the King of the South, Huizengnon, to entice its general, Nicolaetus, to come lead the Bammerite gladiators. King Malvious knew that Nicolaetus lusted after money and accolades.
And it came to pass, Nicolaetus, denied interest in the Bammerites. “Fear not, fish people. I will never leave thee nor forsake thee. Lo, I will remain with thee until the end.”
Lo, and behold, Nicolaetus, spaketh with deceit, for he was lured away by his lust for gold, silver and much accolades. And he journeyed North to the land of Bammer.
And it came to pass, the Bammerites rejoiced greatly. “Nicolaetus has come to rescue us from the evil kings from the directions of the four winds. Surely, goodness and many mythical gladiator championships will follow us forever!"
And the Bammerites were given to much wine and gluttony. They rejoiced greatly, not realizing that they were being led like lambs to the slaughter. # posted by Indiana Vol Fan : 9:56 PM
