re: 2019-20 Alabama Basketball Off-season Thread - Robot Santa
Did Alleva make the call to reinstate him or was it a decision made for him and he is now resigning in protest? If it's the former, why the frick would you make that decision and then leave and let someone else clean up a mess you needlessly made on your way out the door? ...

[quote] Yeah. The absolute last thing I give a shite about is players making money as long as the university isn't coordinating it.[/quote] I really don't either. I would be OK with the idea of officially paying players too if not for the fact that if you pay the football team and men's basketbal...

[quote]I just happen to think the whole thing is gross, it's ruining the amateurism of college athletics that is the foundation of playing for pride and love for the school you attend[/quote] There hasn't been true amateurism in college athletics for the better part of the last 40 years, so this ...

[quote]Quick question if we start getting CBs for Trendon what are you guys who dont want him going to say?[/quote] "I hope the NCAA maintains their 'do nothing and ignore the problem' stance towards blatant impermissible recruiting practices in college basketball." It's not that I don't want...

[quote] We shouldn't want him. Pretty clear he's just going to the highest bidder, and I never say that.[/quote] The idealist in me wants us to stay far away from him and his opportunist family, but it's not as if there would be any consequences from an Alabama duffel bag full of cash magically ...

[quote]So if the NCAA isn't going to touch LSU, we should go ahead and throw the fricking bank at Watford now.[/quote] Is there any particular reason that they are apparently not going to do anything about the HC of a program coordinating with a runner to buy recruits? Are they going to hide behin...

re: Joseph Goodman is a GD fool - Robot Santa
I realize we live in the age of hot take "journalism", but this article should result in the unemployment of the author and the editor who approved it for publication. This is the kind of stupid shite you'd expect Billy Ray up in the nosebleeds to half drunkenly say to the guy sitting next to him, no...

re: Football Recruiting & Roster ~ New commitment edition - Robot Santa
[quote]Which is why I wish there was a minor league in football, so kids who do not want a education can go play only. Stupid to make these kids sit in classes they have no desire to be in.

re: 2019-20 Alabama Basketball Off-season Thread - Robot Santa
I don't think the questioning of relationships being such a big deal was an attempt to say "why don't recruits go play for coaches they dislike more often?" I think it was questioning why recruits put so much stock in dumb shite like a family friend's brother being on the staff of a school they are i...

[quote]The thing is i dont think he had good shooters on his team. They shot well because they got good shots if that makes any sense. Im pretty sure he said something along that line in an interview. Also he keeps offering slashers who arent shooters lol.[/quote] They also shot a ton of 3s. It's...

re: How many people here truly only care about Alabama football? - Robot Santa
Football and basketball are the only two college sports I'll watch if Alabama isn't involved, but I try to keep up with most of our teams the best I can. I actually like basketball better than football. Sacrilege I know, but it is what it is. ...

[quote]Exactly lol. No team has a team full of bigs that can all stroke it. Even the Warriors had Javele Mcgee.[/quote] To me it comes down to whether you want to sacrifice size for spacing or sacrifice spacing for size. Oats seems more inclined to the former. That's why I expect us to sign a bun...

[quote]Also, playing "five out" or "four out and one in" doesn't mean you don't need bigs. You still have to play defense and most teams are going to have some kind of a post game. It just means that on offense, your 4 (and 5 in five out) needs to be able to play out some. A center that can play on ...

re: Official Alabama Baseball Thread (24-15) (4-12) - Robot Santa
I don't think Battle was necessarily a FOG. I think he just had no fricking clue what he was doing with regards to overseeing a major Division I athletics department. Fortunately he never had to make a football hire. I don't even want to imagine how much of a circus that would have been considering h...

[quote]Spoken like a true "insider." Nice work. You got everyone's attention, but gave zero info, thus leaving the door open to claim, literally, anything good that happens "soon", which is an undefined time period.
