Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
I hope Grant can turn this around. It's hard to watch our 1/2 court offense. We seem to drain the clock with little to no ball movement and then put up a low percentage shot as the time expires every trip up the court.
CAG needs an offensive minded assistant to help. I don't want him fired. Just a change with our offense.
The Dynasty is Here!
I'm out of town. Just got back in the hotel from a business dinner, looked up the score on my I-Phone and thought I found the women's score. What is up with 37 points? I read the recap and still can't believe this. I feel like we just lost in football to La Monroe again or hit 50% of my sales budget at month end. No excuse.

I've been a pretty big Grant supporter. This was hard to watch. Extremely hard to watch.
37 point. ...... i dont compute... brain crashing.
Diaper loading,...please wait...
It should be pretty simple. Mal should evaluate this season and say we have given the proper time to let him get "his guys.". What have we come away with? The answer is one tourney birth and one NIT finals. That isn't getting it done for $2,000,000 a year. Time for a change. We need a young energetic guy from an A-10 school or some up and comer. We swung and missed with Grant. Only saving grace is if he gets an offensive minded assistant. Is that even possible in basketball to hire an "offensive coordinator?" (football brain)
Pollard was supposed to be a 1, maybe 2 and done type of recruit, now he will be a senior if he makes it the NBA. Every year we are 1 player away from making a run, I think we are an entire offense away from making a run.... I love Bama, but I can't watch this team play!
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
For all the above reasons given and then some, Coach Grant just was not the right fit for us. Sometimes everything looks to be a perfect fit but it just isn't. Watching Bama play at this point in CG's tenure is just plain hard to do. We have players who appear to be regressing instead of progressing...CG is an outstanding individual but he needs to move on to his next challenge. It just needs to be somewhere other than here. We have not seen good consistent basketball since Wimp wore plaid on the sidelines...with our facilities and positive energy AL can have winning basketball we just need the right hire or should I say the right process! Roll Tide.
