We're going to need to get better players relative to most of the players I saw last night.
I think we have one guy who would have been in the rotation of top eight players on either team. Maybe none in the case of Louisville.
I'm a supporter, not a hater, but we have a ways to go.
Releford would get to play on both of those teams. Your right about better players though. The talent level for Alabama is not elite at this time.
He's the one I referenced. But I'm not sure he's taking Ware's or Hancock's spot based on what I saw.
I often talk of the abyss between Bama football and all others...there's an abyss between Bama basketball and the two teams I saw play last night. Just being real. I believe it's far, far easier to get competitive in a hurry in BB though and thus I have high hopes our big guy signees are immediate impact guys. If they are I think we could be a sweet 16 team, but that's really putting the cart before the horse at this juncture.

Great post and couldn't agree more. All of us want Bama to competitive in basketball and eventually have our chance at the BIG game. I kept thinking last night how much fun it will be when we make it there. The atmosphere seemed great and I know our fan base would eat it up.
Although I think we are taking baby steps in the right direction for our program, we are miles away from being anywhere close to the talent and coaching level of last night. Still a long way to go and if we don't start making strides soon, it's time for a change.
There is no reason why our Ath Dept can't support our other major sports (besides football) with top notch facilities and coaching to give them a chance to be the best. Louisville is clicking in all major sports right now and no reason we can't do the same.
