Ok, so let's just say that there's a kid on this team that ends up being a clutch player (i.e. Demetrius Jemison). Would you feel like this whole season was a wash because Gottfried didn't learn until too late in the year that this kid knew how to take over a game when it mattered?
The two free throws at the end of the game should be story enough. We suck at free throws, and yet, when it mattered the most, Jemison hit two. In the clutch, baby.
So yes, Alabama did beat Arkansas last night, 59-56. It's nice to see the team pull out a victory, even against a team that can't win on the road, but it's even nicer to see them beat Arkansas at home. The Hogs have always played us extremely well in T-town, so to win in a year when we obviously weren't that good just makes it that much sweeter.
Alonzo Gee was awful. Hollinger didn't play but 7 minutes. It was a very different feel this go round. Gottfried's doing anything and everything that he can to try and get on a swing to at least make the NIT. We haven't missed the postseason in something like 7 or 8 years. Don't wanna start that trend.
Freddie Roach was a witness to Rashad Johnson's arrest over the weekend, and he gave us a different story from the one the Tuscaloosa Police Department did. Read Ian's fine work here. Apparently it was just Rashad being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I could believe that.
