    This team is amazing me. The way they stunk up the first 2/3 of the season. I just quit watching them. But they have really turned it around. Can you imagine this team with the opportunity to be a 20 game winner! A few years ago 20 games was an automatic Big Dance. Remember when ‘Nova beat Georgetown for the NC? They went into the tournament with only 18 wins. If we beat UT tonight who knows where this could end. With a good game tonight I believe they’ll get an NIT bid. But if they beat UT again they could run the table in the SEC. Remember they already beat LSU this season. They played AU even last week and Fla. didn’t exactly run over them. Can you imagine this team in the Big Dance. What if Ron had been healthy and stayed with them! Remember what UG did last year. Anyway it’s nice to see. rtr!

    I just hope there aren’t some that will try to use this as an excuse to make Pearson permanent. We need a real head coach. The loss to the barn at home was inexcusable. I will at least give Pearson credit for making the best out of a bad situation, but he deserves a pat on the back and then the door.

    If bama and Auburn continue to win, where do they meet in the tournament ? Semis ? The final ? I havent looked , but meeting up in the semis or the final would be pretty neet.

    If Auburn and Bama win it’ll be an all SEC west tournamet. If they match the semis highest seed against lowest then there would be a possible aii Alabama championship. However at the moment Bama is getting stomped.

    Well forget everything I said previously. Bama may be playing their worst game of the season tonight. If there ever was a chance of Pearson staying, he can start packing now. He’ll be gone as soon as the last NIT bid is given out, and Bama won’t be getting it.
