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.
