Grant embraces Alabama football

Quick reaction to Anthony Grant’s introductory press conference
Anthony Grant embraced Alabama’s football tradition at his introductory press conference Sunday as Alabama’s new basketball coach. Grant declared himself a football fan, and perhaps more importantly, a Nick Saban fan. He even quoted Nick Saban from Saban’s LSU national championship season.

It showed brilliance. It showed diplomacy. You should contrast Grant’s mature attitude with Mark Gottfried’s petulant reaction to Nick Saban’s arrival at Alabama. Gottfried was jealous of Saban. Perhaps that tells us why Gottfried ultimately failed at Alabama—Gottfried’s ego was larger than his ability.

Grant’s arrival brings a refreshing change of attitude to the basketball operation.

    a not-so-fast reaction:

    please.

    he comes in, grabs the football, and assures us we were his first love.

    whatever.

    hey coach grant, shut up and coach the basketball team.

    there’s a smoke detector blaring in my back pocket.

    Man, you Aubbies like to try and find something wrong with anything BAMA. There is nothing wrong with the basketball coach showing support for the football program. At a football school like Bama, appealing to the football fans is a great idea if you want them to show a lot of support for basketball. Seems like ‘common sense’ to me. I guess Bama just got ANOTHER coach you Aubbies will have to fear. Get over it.

    nony, sometimes………..the truth ain’t cool.

    if more worried about truth and less about cool, maybe we wouldn’t be in the financial mess as a nation we’re in right now.
