re: tOfficial Alabama Basketball Season Thread | 14-9 (5-6) | #BuckleUp - BigBird09
PG- Ingram / Coleman / AJjr SG- Ferguson / Davis / Austin SF- King / Norris / Key PF- Hale / Key / Kessens C- Hall / Taylor / Kessens We are going to have sooo much length next yr. Coleman is going to look like a midget out there. Outside of him, everyone who gets major PT next year is going ...

[quote]Alabama has been on him since day 1. Auburn already has Anfree McLemore, and will probably get Garrison Brooks. Can't Reese going there with them taking two PFs already and Alabama having a big need of an inside presence. Plus Pelham is pretty close to T-Town.[/quote] Brooks is a lock for ...

re: tOfficial Alabama Basketball Season Thread | 14-9 (5-6) | #BuckleUp - BigBird09
Honestly I think we have a good shot just in your first scenario. Our record vs tournament teams would separate us from those with a similar RPI. Just FYI but if we lose the A&M game in that scenario the forecast drops us to a 62 RPI. I ran the scenario again, but for the NCAAT chose USCe in the ...

re: tOfficial Alabama Basketball Season Thread | 14-9 (5-6) | #BuckleUp - BigBird09
I think A&M is the most winnable one. If away games were officiated like it was today we'd have a shot in the other ones, but that kind of equal officiating is rare in SEC play. We'd have to be raining 3s like crazy otherwise....

[quote]Had such a weird dream of Alabama winning it all in the tournament and won it all over than none other than the LSU Tigers. We hadn't beaten them, this was our first ever final four, and LSU was confident. We were up by 20 with 3 minutes to go and naturally let them pull within 1 with 5 secon...

[quote] am not arguing per se about this game just making observations about the officials. I watched enough of this game to make a casual observation though. But you guys sound like LSU fans in FB bitching about officials. We are better then this right?[/quote] And you sound like someone who pre...

[quote]it was the NCAA initiative this year to crack down on hand fouls, hand checks etc. Not sure Greg has a say so in this. The teams were warned in advance that this was going to be watched this year. [/quote] As I was saying during the game, USCe hands were all over us the entire game and I ...

[quote] Its the first year guys calm down[/quote] I'm not sure who that was meant for but there's not many people upset with the team tonight. That's just the thing about the officiating. If this weren't a regular occurrence I'd let it die, but this shite happens on the reg every fricking year. If...

[quote]but blaming the refs for our deficiencies is not a good color on you or anyone. We are a horrible team that is playing above our physical talent.[/quote] Dude, Bryant is always the last to complain about officiating. I mean to the point it's almost annoying. We weren't given the chance to co...

[quote] If Grant didn't just rely totally on signing Pillars, he could have added more[/quote] This is what screwed Grant in the end. He swung for the fences in recruiting and had a lot of one hoppers to the fence. That's why it cracks me up when people say that before CAJ we didn't even get not...

It does however make me mad at Tarrant. He left us to win and Memphis is sitting at 123 in RPI right now. With Ingram down, we could have definitely used Tarrant with how inconsistent Coleman's been, though it does make me wonder if his presence wouldn't have allowed Retin to flourish. ...

re: SEC RPI Ratings as of 1-27-16 - BigBird09
[quote]I love KenPom, but we are getting to a point where the RPI is a meaningful tool. This is not because it is necessarily good, but because it is settling and wins/losses won't have nearly as much shift because there is lots of data and the NCAA still loves the frickin RPI for whatever reason[/q...

[quote]The only one I would switch would be Taylor for Hall. [/quote] Taylor has the advantage because he's started for so long and he's a senior, but we would be so much better with Hall on the floor more. He's a better shot blocker, rebounder, and a fantastic lob option. Once he gets some muscl...

PG - Ingram SG - Ferguson SF - King PF - Hale C - Hall (at least that's what I'm hoping) Our wings are going to be LOADED. I think Armond Davis is going to surprise some people, and while Key isn't likely an immediate pro prospect, he's built like a perfect role player. Add a hopefully consi...

[quote]We don't sign a solid center, we're fricked.[/quote] Bit of an exaggeration. While I think it would be extremely helpful, I still think we're a borderline top 25 team with out one. Hall will improve and take over and we might have the best 1-3 in the league next year in starting (Ingram, Fe...
