We don't need to open ourselves up to any potential NCAA investigations.Let Pearl stay on ESPN. Other than get UT in trouble, what did he do so special. Let's give CAG one more year to see what he does in recruiting. I think the problem is that he hasn't built any depth. 8 scholarship players, really???
Yea I agree Let's Grant, We do not need a CHEATER and A CROOK like pearl for our coach
Correct and wise
Trust me you don't and I will leave it at that!
Coleman is second class. I even thought it was back in the 90's when I was there. I know we've done renovations but it's only so much lipstick you can put on a pig. That's part of the problem because kids today love to see the bling and that 60's architecture ain't impressing anyone. Grant is a good coach, gottfried was a good coach but its far easier to get talent to the Carolina's than to Alabama. Until we can get someone to pull in some solid players and get us some quality depth we will always be mediocre and it may take a bigger name than Grant to do it. We need a new baseball field also.
We need depth, but more importantly, we need an inside presence. We are a completely different team if we can establish an inside presence. As fans who don't really support basketball in any event, I think giving him more time is the right call. Can't just whine and never show up for games (not talking about everyone, but many of us are fair weather when it comes to supporting the team and you can't get a top-tier coach with that level of fan support).
I wish there were some way to convince Tubby Smith to come to Alabama. That guy is a fantastic coach.

All you guys that look only at the "on-court" element & clamor for the Bobby Petrino's & Bruce Pearl's of the world, simply don't get it. Bama always has & always will stand for more than just W's. CHARACTER still means something. I want wins more than anyone but not at the expense of CLASS & INTEGRITY.
I'm not thrilled with our results but I greatly respect the way Grant, much like Saban, is trying to build men of character. He understands the foundation has to be laid before you reap the results. He's focused on the PROCESS!
Those of you that don't understand that this is the foundation that leads to the long-term success we all desire, need to invest in a John Wooden book ASAP.
Pearl & Petrino always have and always will be guys looking for shortcuts and more about themselves than the team. It's all begins with CHARACTER & SELFLESSNESS FOR THE TEAM. Bear Bryant, John Wooden & Nick Saban all knew this and were successful because they lived it, breathed it, taught it & focused on the PROCESS!!! RTR
I'm a Tubby Smith as well. He is without a doubt a quality coach. In his fourth and fifth seasons at Minnesota he went 12-24 in conference play. Minnesota could have bailed on him and tried their luck at another coaching search. In his sixth year he is 15-2 (3-1) and ranked eighth in the country.
Now Tubby would be a coup!
