So is JSU going to beat us on a last second 3 or will they dominate from start to finish? Just trying to mentally prepare.

Already prepared for one of their players that averaged 1.2 PPG last season to drop 30 on us and not miss downtown.

Speaking of Jacksonville State, y’all remember when Daniel Giddens had 7 fouls in 9 minutes and we lost the exhibition by almost 30 against them

But we were told we were putting too much emphasis on an exhibition game.

re: Alabama Basketball Megathread
I know our record hasn’t improved since then, but when you look at our style of play and how we look at times when we’re clicking, we really have come a long way since that moment lol

Edit: I thought for awhile we were about to become a bottom 4 SEC team. Everyone was hiring elite coaches and we were stuck overpaying Avery. We managed to survive tho and get Oats. Still pissed that we paid Avery millions to make the tourney 1/4 years (almost 0/4) and put us on a 3 year probation

Remember when we all convinced ourselves that it wasn't a terrible hire made out of pure desperation after our incompetent former AD allowed himself and the university to be publicly humiliated by a guy who turned out to be a violent, racist psychopath?

I mean, Avery did overachieve his first year with a shite roster. Not gonna lie I was fully bought in after we won in Gainesville and Baton Rouge B2B.

His Best coaching jobs were his first 2 years.

If I hadn’t watched him play other games, I’d think that he really just didn’t want to play against JSU that day

Avery would put him in to give Donta a rest and dude would pick up 2 fouls before Donta sat down.

He's talking about Avery being AD Bill Battle's fall-back option after unsuccessfully courting Greg Marshall, who just resigned from Wichita St amid an ugly scandal.

They let him walk and are paying him 7.5 mil. They could have fired him for cause with no buyout.

Really makes you wonder what else might be there.

I haven't read much more than headlines about the whole thing but best guess is that their notable big hoops boosters didn't want Marshall coming after the program with a vengeance and inside info on rampant recruiting violations.
