ITKTired of the malaise of Alabama basketball? Eager for signs of competitiveness again, like back in the good old days?

That’s right. Those of us old enough to remember can recall years of ‘Bama basketball when come tourney time, you weren’t sitting on pins and needles hoping the NIT selection committee would call our name. We KNEW we were in.

There were even two years…TWO…when the Tide was selected for the NCAA Tournament! I know it’s hard to believe, but trust me, it’s true.

In his six years, David Hobbs compiled a 110-76 record (a respectable 59.4% winning percentage). The 117-85 record toted by current men’s basketball coach Anthony Grant in the same span of time has yielded just a 57.9% winning percentage, with NO hope of NCAA appearances and a possible NIT snub…for the 2nd year in a row.

Anthony Grant has single handedly set Alabama basketball back four decades, to the years before C.M. Newton. At least David Hobbs carried the torch, somewhat. Grant is too lazy to pick it up.

  2. well, pearl has just beaten lsu to win his third SEC tournament game in a row while ‘bama sits in tuscaloosa with grant.

    pearl, in his first season, with a rag tag buch of misfits, when it counts, has completely out shone the Alabama athletic dept., Bill fukn Battle and anybody who at any point this season thought Anthony Grant could coach.

    and for those of us who know better, well here’s a big fuck you from the Capstone.

    cause they don’t give a shit what you think.
