Was just hoping to stay close!
I'll take some of that.
? Vs a UK team missing a key player that as a team is 0-6 vs ranked teams and hasn't beaten anyone with an rpi better than 68?
Crow is served in march.....not January my friend. Not that I don't think we can't get better and make a run just that we aren't there yet.

Yeah, bama is so healthy right now (g). Golly. G, we've been healthy all year. Aren't we so lucky? Poor UK!
Do us all a favor and go play with your fanny pack full of pogs. Leave the basketball discussion to those that have a clue.
We will win the NIT.
We suck. The SEC suck worse. ROLL TIDE IOO.
Need a bowl of that.
Congrats CAG and to the men on our Team!!
Lol..my dad was a basketball coach at Bama. I'm 6'7. I've played. Dont wear fanny packs either. Great win last night but y'all are acting like we beat last years UK team. Basketball is about improving and playing efficiently in march. Not home wins in January vs sub par UK team. Get a clue.
I'll continue watching every game and rooting for Bama but gut check games at home in January tells me nothing about how we will play in march other than that our effort will always be there.
some are acting like we've arrived. Someone get Grant and the boys on the phone and tell them no need to practice anymore. Were final four bound.
If I was a Bama coach I'd tell the boys, great effort, great win, but we have got to get better. We have to play smarter on offense. If we start getting consistent play down low it could really open some things up

i dont think you know what crow means
Some of you do not understand how bad the UK team is this year. They probably won't make the tourney either.
Crow = The Breakfast of Champions IHNEO IYO?
Everyone knows this UK team isn't as good as last year's team. Does that mean we aren't allowed to celebrate this win? A win in the biggest game of our season so far, with the biggest crowd and that was promoted heavily by the athletic department.
If we have a down year next year and lose a few games to SEC teams, do you think that us not being as good as we were in 2009, 2011, 2012 is going to hold them back from celebrating like there is no tomorrow?
No, this Kentucky team is not as good as the past years' teams, but this was a nice win for our team as it is another step in the right direction when it looked like in December we could go into a tailspin. And depsite the record, that UK team has a lot of talent.

You made my day - sweet credentials, lol
"Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places you have to look at it right."
Lol...ya I kinda meant it to be funny. Unfortunately my dad passed away but I could just hear him last night cussing up a storm. My dad was bobby knight before there was a bobby knight. His coaching produced and delivered Leon Douglas and Ozzie Newsome to Bama. So yes im passionate about Bama bball. They were so close in the mid 70s to breaking through and really doing something. Then UK raided our staff and wimp tried so hard and made some magic of his own.
My post was more on knowing everything you just said, I still thought we'd lose by double digits..we didn't and we won. So for me it was crow eating time.
I didn't intend to put my crow in anyone else's mouths.
Oh lord no. I celebrated and was jumping up and down. But my first reaction was not to come to the board and try to serve grow because we have arrived. That does no one any good except for personal pride and vanity. I'm focused on the team. And we got a long long way to go.
This team has accomplished nothing yet. I want trophies. Its in us. If Arkansas can do it we can to. We've got a good coach. We just have to develop some of our talent.
Crow crunchers IYEO?
I think you're missing the big picture.
Of course this ain't last years UK team (tho there was a lot of raw talent there last night).
But this Bama squad needed a boost of confidence and reenergize the fan base. A win against Big Blue (ANY UK team), on ESPN, in front of the best crowd we've had this year does that.
Let's take it for what it is and hope it leads to even better things in the future
Beating villanova by 22 and them beating Louisville last night lets me know we are capable of winning some games Roll Tide.
HUGE win in those regards. At the start of the game I was like, ok Lacy, you wanted a crowd...you got it. Now show em what's up. They got it done.
