It is Monday. How many more Mondays remain for Mark Gottfried as head coach of Alabamaâ€™s basketball team?
With each ticking of the clock, the feeling grows that midnight is nigh for Gottfried.
It isnâ€™t a pleasant thought.
Gottfried is a former player, and someone I supported to replace the feckless David Hobbs.
Which proves, anyone can make a mistake.
But something is in the air. You can feel it. Talk to anyone who might possibly care, and there is an evasive feeling. An uncertain feeling. Either people donâ€™t know, donâ€™t care or…
It isnâ€™t as palpable, yet, as the last days of Mike Shula. But something just feels like it is afoot.
Is it time for Mal to make a definitive statement of support? To give Mark the obligatory vote of confidence? Such a statement now would go a long way to telling us what could happen to Alabamaâ€™s basketball program.
One other thing
I wanted to take a moment to thank all the readers, contributors, and commentators. I’ve really enjoyed blogging about Alabama athletics. The feedback and support means a lot.
I’ve got a few plans for the upcoming year to improve the site. I think it will be exciting, and hope to begin unveiling items from it in the coming weeks.
