That's all I can say. Wow.

How a team, with its back agains the wall, can lose at home to Auburn is beyond me.

And Gottfried is right. I can't remember a team of his that just "didn't get it." I don't give a damn is Steele was out. It's still Auburn. It's still at home. If Steele doesn't play, that means you give the ball to Hendrix and Davidson in the post. But that can't happen if nobody moves around on offense. That can't happen if nobody creates anything on defense.

This team's inability to defend anybody is absolutely disgusting. You don't have to learn how to play defense. You just have to try. And nobody on this team is trying. They act like they don't even care.

So for those expecting one of those entertaining rants like I usually do after a loss against a team we should've beaten, I'm sorry. No ranting. Just quiet disappointment. The goal now is no longer to get to the NCAA tournament. The goal is to figure out what the hell is wrong and fix it before next year takes the same turn that this year did. This was probably Alabama's most talented team ever under Gottfried, but they were also his most uninspired.

The last two games should be fun, but be ready for two straight losses and a quick exit from the conference tournament.

NIT. For this team? Wow.

Oh well. At least there's some football news. Geoff Collins, formerly the director of player personnel at Georgia Tech, has taken the same position on Coach Saban's staff. He brings lots of experience, which is a good thing. I'm really liking the people that Saban is bringing in. Not big names, but coaches that will work together. Coaches that know who the boss is. No fighting for power, etc. I dig it.
