The problem is that it seems such a low percentage gamble in hiring a guy who takes over a smaller program or mid-major and has 2 or 3 good seasons then jumps before even having a complete recr...

[quote]We already had the rebound and were shooting. The call was charge not over the back [/quote]
I'm sure the call was a charge because the official thought the defender was set and the offensive player wasn't "driving" but simply had possession with a defender set in front of him and then wen...

He wasn't "driving" at all.
He got the rebound over a defender who was in front of him and he then barged right over him.
You don't "drive the basket" when you start 5 feet away from it and barge right through the guy in front of you no matter where his feet are.

I think that only applies to situations where the offensive player is actually driving to the basket and not automatically to, say, grabbing a rebound and plowing through a defender. ...

Doubt Alabama can keep it up since they seem to have only 6 players healthy plus Slaughter who I'm not sure has ever played over 1 full minute in a game.

You´ve only been able to see European kids wearing the odd Chelsea strip in the past ten years, and recently, with greater frequency.

Yeah, kind of a disappointing match altogether.
I guess it was at least a decent sign that Roma fought back and leveled after going down to 10 men but it's kind of odd that we only created a lot of chances after being shorthanded.
My rant: Today, De Sanctis kicked long 19 times and Roma se...

Of course, racism manifest itself in totally different ways in different places but I would agree that racist chanting on the train and barring entry seems a particularly English tradition.

I'm not old enough to have watched them so I'm not sure about the rest of the squad but I would imagine the CM Newton team with King, Dunn and Douglas.

SEC bubble teams may owe a debt of gratitude to LSU for keeping those RPIs under 200.
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: *** Official Fire Anthony Grant Part Deux *** - wm72 on 3/1/15 at 2:37 pm|
Arkansas and LSU have a better starting five mainly because they both have a couple of NBA (or at least NBA fringe) players that make enough of the type plays to win tight games. Like when we played both of them.
I know it's almost sacrilegious to compliment Grant but some games like Arkansas...

I wouldn't think they're out if they finish 1 and 1 but it may mean they'll need to not lose the first SEC tourney game against another non-tourney team.
They still have some wins that are probably going to stack up well against other bubble teams: @Arky @Oregon Cincinnati(N)...
