Days 'til Auburn: 4

Ok, so I don't want to stray too far from football...

...but I sat up last night and watched the Tide play basketball. At least until about 8 minutes left in the game when we were down 20. A 9 point lead in the first half turned into a 20 point deficit in what seemed like no time.

I realized, once Oregon took their first lead in the closing minutes of the first half, that I was watching the end of Mark Gottfried's career at Alabama. This team can't shoot, from the field or from three or from the free throw line. They don't know how to play defense. They don't really know how to do anything. They don't move the ball around on offense. They just dribble, maybe make one pass, and then one guy tries to play one on one with somebody else. It's ridiculous to watch and an absolute embarrassment to former Alabama teams and this conference. Of course, there are a lot of bad teams in this conference now.

It's not going to get any better this year. We got beat at home by Mercer. Got hammered in Maui by Oregon (who got beat at home by Oakland earlier this year). We've still gotta play Texas A&M, Georgia Tech, and Clemson in non-conference, along with a game against St. Joe's or Indiana to close out in Maui. This is going to be a BAD season. Ronald Steele can't move like he used to, and the freshmen we've brought in aren't exactly world beaters. This team is just miserable. And you know that teams take on the personalities of their coach. Hey Mal...I hear there's this guy named Anthony Grant over at VCU....

I'll have more on football later. Right now though, I'm tired.
