He can't coach and can't recruit. This was not a big win. Mississippi State isn't a good team and we shouldn't get our hopes up. We are terrible. Engstrom shouldn't be on the court. Grant waited too long to suspend Mitchell. He has lost this team.
I think I've pretty well captured the sentiment of this board from last week. Have I missed anything?
It's pretty obvious that my sarcasm wasn't obvious enough. I think Grant is fantastic.

Grant doesn't know how to attack a zone. Offense is barbaric. He hasn't developed any of the new guys, 5 months should be enough! Losing to LSU (the worst team in LSU history!!) was unforgivable, no matter how many starters got suspended.
You got me. I forgot some. Also, we lost to South Carolina. He should be fired for that no matter what else happens.
I doubt a single person has actually said that.
Has nothing to do with the fact he's black and coaching at Alabama. It just because he's three years in and taking us to the NCAA.
Actually a day or so ago someone said that the Arky and Tennessee wins couldn't make up for the USCe loss. So that's pretty close.
My good man, you are clueless. This thread absolutely validates my opinion of the star-ranking on this site.

People like you make me sick. Do you think we are Duke or Kansas? Do you know anything about basketball? Put down the bottle and be happy about a win where our boys played there hearts out for there coach.
Bbuck, I was being sarcastic. I have been a huge fan of Grant for a long time. I was mocking all the negative comments about him on this board a couple of weeks ago.
Didn't get that. Really sorry for the bottle comment. Not the first time I've overreacted when it comes to bama. Roll Tide and I feel like a jack A**
No worries. I just started another thread that says what I really think. The truth is that sarcasm is rarely an effective means of persuasion.
GET OUT OF HERE! YOU ARE NO BAMAA BASKETBALL FAN
Pray for Tuscaloosa and Roll Tide!
Can't recruit!? Lol you gotta be joking man.. Without Releford, Lacey, Randolph, Cooper, Jacobs, and Hankerson we would be awful!! And if I recall he was the one who recruited them right? Just bc we don't have any committs right now doesn't mean he isn't doing his job.. He is winning games and that's all that matters right now! I believe he and the Tide staff knows what they are doing.. Roll Tide

Well, they can't. That was an atrocious loss and still could hurt us in the long term. There's a very real possibility that we will get a lower seed in the SEC tournament thanks to that loss. That's a lot different than saying the coach should be fired regardless of what happens.
Grant's done a nice job the last few games. However, he will ultimately be judged on the season (and his career) as a whole, not one span of a few games. That's why I find the firing threads and this thread equally ridiculous.
Actually, Grant has done a very good job all year. Just look at the early nonconference schedule. He had a blip mid season and dealt with it. He is easily the best coach we have had since Wimp and maybe before that. That is why all the anti-Grant posts, including yours, were so ridiculous.

He's done a good job most of the year. I'm not going to agree that he's done a good job all year because that's just not the case. The "blip" still is on him. Maybe it was the best thing that could have happened to the team. The next couple of weeks show whether that is the case.
FWIW, I never made anti-Grant posts. I made posts questioning what the hell he was doing at times, but that doesn't mean I'm anti-Grant. Some of you all-or-nothing people are hard to deal with on both sides.
There are some really dense people ITT.
