re: Positive Outlook For Bama Hoops - BigBird09
I don't think Grant is a bad coach, I just think he is an overpaid coach. Grant's biggest problem to me isn't even the coaching either, it's been the lack of talent and depth. I don't see the talent being the issue this year, hence the optimism....

re: Positive Outlook For Bama Hoops - BigBird09
Two of the new guys were here last year, but had to sit out. 5 of the 7 newcomers are good to great shooters which is something we've sorely missed since Grant's arrival. Plus the biggest difference which seems to get overlooked is the fact that we had just 9 scholarship players last year, one of wh...

re: Marcus Spears is very awkward as an analyst - BigBird09
I think some people here went in with way too high of expectations. For one it's a first day so it's going to be a little awkward, and second of all it's a channel based on a single college conference. ESPN isn't going to have all their regulars running this program. Now, it's mostly new guys and as...

re: Marcus Spears is very awkward as an analyst - BigBird09
I cringed/twitched/facepalmed at the "Braton Rouge" part, but outside of that I didn't see anything truly "cringe worthy". He actually had some decent analysis. I didn't see all of it, but I think just about everybody had their cringe worthy moments. For Spears it was the Saban interview. For Teb...

re: Marcus Spears is very awkward as an analyst - BigBird09
Yeah, Barkley is awesome. He's funny and he's blunt. Two of my favorite qualities in an analyst. He's not exactly articulate when explaining his point of view, but he's usually right on the money....

re: ***Official Going to at least the Sweet 16 Thread*** - BigBird09
He might could use a little more media time in the off-season, but at least he did do the whole Crimson Caravan thing this summer. "In hiding" is a poor way to describe his lack of media appearances though. He's been recruiting his arse off since the Crimson Caravan ended so it's not like he's been s...

re: Could we score 70 a game this season? - BigBird09
Florida State's 52.9 ppg last season is the highest scoring average in a single season for the last 10 years. If that isn't the record, it can't be far from that seeing as how the scoring output has steadily increased over the years. So the answer is no, it's an impossibility....

Well, if no one else is going to say it, I will. Donovan's a dickhole... A magnificent and genius dickhole, but a dickhole nonetheless. I'm starting to think that Billy just lets Grant do all the scouting while he swoops in at the last minute like a glorious Vulture to steal our prospects......

A pretty mobile 7'3" center with a 7'9" wingspan who's only had 4 years of experience and was already pretty good in the second best professional league went in the middle of the second round. Chris Walker averaged less than 2 ppg at the collegiate level. In a very down draft, he may have gotten a ...

I don't see Purifoy as a program changer though. Langford on the other hand is a different story. I don't see us getting him because he's a top 10 talent who grew up a Duke fan, but it would be awesome if we did. He's been the best in-state HS player since his 9th grade year....
