we're projected to win all of ours except 2
Except for the preseason polls, expectations regarding future opponents don't really factor into rankings.
I just wanna know what will it take for us to be nationally prominent again.
I don't think National prominence is the right term for Alabama basketball, even when it is good. however, to answer your question, when they can put a competent and consistence offense together they will win enough games to keep their coach and get Bama fans excited. Only to flame out come tournament time. That is who Bama has become.
As an Auburn fan, I would be ecstatic to climb to that level.
