Almost time for football....
Well, practically, it is time for football. But we'll give the basketball team at least one more day before we completely switch gears and head back to the football team.

Days 'til Spring Practice: 11
Days 'til the A-Day Game: 39

It's inching closer and closer and closer. Once the basketball team is eliminated from the NIT, we'll begin getting into this year's football team preview. We'll go through each position, see what we've got, see what's coming in, who's gonna redshirt, who's gonna flunk out, who's gonna transfer, who can't handle General Saban's new regime, etc. It'll be a lot of fun looking at all of this.

But, until then, we'll go through with all of the basketball stuff again.

So, as we begin to look back on the season of '06-'07, we can't help but wonder what exactly went wrong. We can blame it on Davidson's personal struggles. We can blame it on Ronald Steele being hurt all year long. But the players that are still out there can only blame it on themselves. Alonzo Gee is not an SEC caliber player. His defense is atrocious. I sit and watch teams like Arkansas and Auburn who work their tails off on the defensive side of the ball, and then I watch our team and the difference is like night and day. And it worries me because I don't know if that's the coach or just the players.

What I do know is this - and I don't know how many times I can say it - ...we have oodles of talent coming back next year, so if we're not at least 10-6 in the SEC, then Gottfried should be gone. And it pains me to say that, but only 3 winning conference records in 9 years is not a good thing. I don't care if he's been to the Elite 8 or not...that's ridiculous.

We'll have the preview of the UMass game in a little while.
