re: Alabama Basketball Season Thread (4-4) - BigBird09
[quote]Javian is the most skilled big we have had since Jamychal, but I think to really play a big role in this kind of offense he's going to need to continue to work on his strength and conditioning and teach himself to shoot 3s. His shot looks good, so I see no reason why he can't get there. He's ...

Wow. The refs screwed Furman over hard. That reviewed call is the worst I’ve ever seen. The bad thing is they overturned it from the correct call. Unreal....

re: Exactly how good is Bryce Young? Start as a freshman over Mac good? - BigBird09
[quote]I mean sure but one of the turnovers was a 1/1000 play. Also 3 of the 4 listed are future 1st round picks with at least 2 seasons worth of starts under their belt.[/quote] Maybe the way it popped off of Najee’s back, but the throw itself was a terrible decision. That ball should’ve been th...

[quote]Notable QBs vs. this AU defense (keep in mind that Fromm is the only one that played @AU. And that every other QB had 20 or more starts under their belt) Justin Herbert: 28/37 (75%) 242 yards (6.5 average) 1td 0int QBR: 43.4 Kellen Mond: 31/49 (61%) 335 yards (6.8) 2tds 0int QBR: 54.9 J...

[quote]Not at QB, he doesn’t. He wants experience and he wants to know what to expect out of his QB. Bryce Young will not start vs USC. Hurts was a different situation with no clear cut experienced guy with snaps taken with the 1’s when it mattered. Mack has been here going on 3 years with some star...

[quote]I would take that bet that Mac wont start. Saban stuck with a pretty subpar quarterback in Hurts as a sophomore in 2017 even when it was clear to everybody with a lick of sense that we won those games in spite of his poor play that year. Saban loves him some experience.[/quote] :lol: Jalen...

[quote]I jinxed the hell out of Louisville. Michigan is within 6 [/quote] Yeah, I’m not sure why, but I’m rooting hard against them. I just don’t want them to be rewarded for their lazy arse hire of Juwan Howard. It annoys me for some reason....

[quote] Grant has way more talented prospects to select from at Dayton that he ever had at Bama.[/quote] I don’t know about that. Retin Obasohan, Levi Randolph, Trevor Releford, Tony Mitchell, and JaMychal Green. Outside of Sexton, those are all better players than what Avery had. Grant just did...

[quote]Yes he should have made the kick . I have said that . I said it was a glorified XP. But us losing the game was not all his fault . To think that it was is asinine[/quote] Yeah, people keep talking about how easy it is to hit a 30-yd FG, but how easy is it to stay still until someone tells ...

re: Alabama Basketball Season Thread (4-4) - BigBird09
[quote]I kind of disagree with this. I think if we dialed it down from a 10 to an 8 they'd still be learning to play fast while not giving up countless possessions every game by playing completely out of control. You have to crawl before you can walk. I was just expecting to be top ~100 or so in pac...

[quote]This season is going to be difficult on all of us though[/quote] The thing that makes it difficult is knowing we could be so much better than we are if we slow things down to a normal pace. But that’s not what we hired Oats to do and for future purposes we should hope he continues to force...

re: Alabama Basketball Season Thread (4-4) - BigBird09
Here’s my view: We have a Coach who is a great offensive mind and has some beautiful play calls. That is why I’m encouraged and certain he will be a good coach for us. It’s just going to be ugly for most of the year. The problem is 3-fold. #1: We have players and a program who haven’t bee...

re: Alabama Basketball Season Thread (4-4) - BigBird09
Yeah, I normally agree with his takes, but there’s only one way he’s on the hot seat in year 2 and that’s if Byrne, for whatever reason, isn’t the AD next year. An AD isn’t going to fire his first major hire at the university after year 2 even if the fan base is calling for it....

[quote]I feel like going up strong would at least get to the line whereas these up and under layups just aren’t working.[/quote] That may be exactly why he doesn’t go for the contested dunk. Dude legitimately looks like he hates going to the line. Herb needs confidence in all aspects of his offen...

[quote]Oats said this is a tourney team. Now that was before injuries, but if it takes 3 years to be a competent team, something has gonna very wrong or he’s a poor recruiter.[/quote] Yeah, it should be much better next year. I think the main issue is the 360 switch in offensive philosophies. We’...

Off topic, but Dayton is running and has some great ball movement. So frustrating to see, but happy for Grant. I said when he was fired that he’d make a name for himself elsewhere. Awesome for him that he gets to do it at his alma mater....

re: Alabama Basketball Season Thread (4-4) - BigBird09
I’m not usually the ultra-negative guy on here, but we look straight bad offensively. Only positive I can take from this game is the way we defended Anthony and overall. Everything else was pretty bad. You take Petty’s “where the Hell has this been” game and replace it with the norm and we get destr...
