Ben Howland: [quote]"It's something I should have done much earlier in my career," he says. "That is a regret, because I thought it really helped us. (Arizona coach) Sean Miller told me this fall it was really tough for them to deal with how much we pushed the ball. We beat them three times that yea...

[quote]@ClayontheSEC: Been told by several folks Tom Izzo is being looked at by Alabama boosters. Rumor for now, but very strong.[/quote] I know this is impossible, but it's great to fantasize about. We'd have the best coach in both major sports. What an era for an Alabama fan would that be? ...

[quote]Kind of sad that they all were suppose to be known as good shooters when coming to Bama besides Levi. Tarrant even killed us one year SMH.[/quote] Tarrant was inconsistent and streaky at Tulane as well. I think everyone expected him to tone down the attempts and it would help his percentages,...

re: I know most here don't like Grant but i loved this regardless - BigBird09
[quote] also know from a couple of first-hand sources that CAG is extremely hard on the players each and every practice[/quote] I'm not sure how that is a bad thing. We certainly don't have a problem with it in football. Look, I think Grant should be done here as well. I just hate when people...

[quote]Always glad to see the players having a good time but the fact that beating a 12-14 team produced that kind of celebration really illustrates how hard up this team has been for big wins the last couple years[/quote] Give me a break. Yes, those big wins have been few and far in between, but...

re: I know most here don't like Grant but i loved this regardless - BigBird09
But Grant doesn't care... There's plenty of things to complain about with Grant, but I hate it when people make shite up like "he doesn't care" to justify bashing him. Hell, I wish it was because he didn't care or that he was a lazy ass. It would make it such an easy parting. Firing and moving on ...

re: Grant will be back next year... - BigBird09
[quote]Levi, Tarrant and Hale are also decent shooters. Having guys that can't shoot is not Bama's problem[/quote] Disagree. 1. Hale has been an abysmal shooter until the last couple games, and Tarrant has been a very inefficient 3 pt shooter. The fact that you didn't mention Cooper and mentione...

re: Why are bama fans freaking out about bball? - BigBird09
[quote]None of this is to say that I don't think Alabama needs to do much better but also needs to realize what the goal needs to be in replacing Grant and not "he's so bad anyone would be better" because it's much easier to do worse.  [/quote] You pretty much nailed it, but this is specifically...

[quote]Both guys played for multiple years at Bama (not one and done types based on quick wiki search) and would probably be willing to lend a hand. [/quote] Horry's been asked this question, and said he doesn't want a collegiate assistant job. Not sure about McDyess....

[quote]He's rebuilt 3 programs, taken all 3 to the Final Four, never lost to a double digit seed in the NCAA tournament, and has a better winning % at UK than Adolph Rupp did through the same # of games. [/quote] I guess this is where we agree. This is the "success" I'm talking about. Whether it...

[quote]Eric Bledsoe and Willie Cauley Stein weren't highly rated guys out of high school. [/quote] Terrible examples. Bledsoe was a 5-star on at least one site. Willie Cauley was a top 40 player that was only offered because he struck out on his top big man targets. He didn't even see him play ba...

[quote]However, and maybe I'm being a bit too negative, but if I had to bet on which coach would have better teams at Alabama over the next 4 years I'd probably bet on Grant out of the four[/quote] Outside of White, I'd agree with you. If you gave me the option of Prohm, Pearson, or just keep Gra...

[quote] Not that I'm saying I want him either, but what makes you say that?

Did great his first year with Kennedy's recruits a...

The good news is if we make it to the NIT our players won't hold on to the ball for 34.9 seconds. NIT is experimenting the 30 second shot clock. Would be tremendous for the sport....
