Because our basketball team is going to be a force. I can't wait to see all the CAG haters next year.
No,, they will say "Grant changed his philosophy/offense/focus/etc.. to what I was saying last year... Glad he was willing to listen and change"...
We ll see, but we should've been better this year. Obviously with everyone coming back we should be better. Retin IMO will define our team next year. If he can be our go to guy and give us 15-20 a game we ll be a lefitmate tourney team. How Jimmie Taylor and Shannon Hale play in the paint will also be our X factor. Needless to say the stars are aligned for Grant next year. He needs to pull one heck or a recruiting class to replace all our sophomores though.

Why? Did cag tell you he was starting his player development department next year ?
So true. Yesterday we ran the same stuff, just had guys being more aggressive and finishing plays by making the shot.
Offense looks better when guys maximize it and make shots.
Yea if he gets some players to play in the post with some coordination then we will be better and possibly make the tournament. Hopefully we will be able to score more than 5 points in the second half against auburn, our biggest rival next year too. So yes, we will need to do something differently offensively next year....
The past 2 games we've looked loose, almost as if the reins have been taken off offense wise. I don't know if its something coach grant has done of maybe our guys aren't as uptight since its the NIT.
Or maybe we look "loose" because we played northeastern and a subpar Stanford team who sqeaked by Stephen f. Austin 58-57 the round before. Just being honest.

Playing Northeastern and Stanford can help most teams offense......
If you want to walk the heavenly streets of gold, you gotta know the password, "Roll, tide, roll!"
Thank you Slipper.
Grant's comments after the Stanford game:
“I thought because guys stayed aggressive on the offensive end, we were able to win comfortably.”
Don't think it was a change by CAG.. i think RO is an aggressive kid, which fits this offense.
Personally, I hope we go undefeated next year. That said, I won't be eating crow if we do. I'll just sit back and enjoy it because I'll know CAG made great adjustments - as any coach worth his salt will do.
However, anyone who understands basketball at all was justified in criticizing some of the play this year. Watch the games where Bobby Knight was the color analyst. I like BK because he doesn't worry about offending anybody or having to be politically correct. He was very critical of our offense at times, as were many of our fans. It was justifiable. At times, we play selfish, impatient, chaotic, and/or uninspired basketball. Yesterday we didn't.
As a high school basketball coach, I push the CNS philosophy - focus on the process, not the results. Just because the ball goes in the hoop does not mean we ran a good offensive set.
Our offensive process was often offensive this year. Whether the ball went in the hoop or not was irrelevant.
RZ4Life, are you criticizing the play of the players or the offense Bama runs? Or criticizing CAG for not getting his players to play differently within the offense? and adjustments to the offense scheme or players?

I was waiting...thanks for going there and risking your rating. Two very average teams, and on Tuesday we will see our first test this post season. We do look good but it could very well be competition.
