Like every other Bama fan without multiple TVs in a room... I was flipping back and forth between the basketball and football game up until the 2 minute mark in Cincy. IMO we played a near perfect game, dictating the pace of the game, forcing bad shots, but like the LMU game in 1990 we fell just a little bit short.
I have to admit, I'm getting tired of Nick Jacobs fouling out. If he was in the game in the last 6 seconds I don't think that fadeaway jumper that buried us gets taken. Gueye... as much as he tries is slower than Adam Keefe and I knew once he was put in the position to defend we were in trouble.
I think I've been clear that I'm still on the fence on Anthony Grant, but a game like this endears him to me just a little bit more. Under the Gottfried regime we would've lost by 24.
We still have some serious issues inside, but I'm hoping the combination of our backcourt picking up the slack and how horrendous the SEC is hides that serious flaw.
Also, I had the pleasure of attending a game at the Pit in New Mexico. I wish Coleman looked 50% as good as this place does. The place was 90% full for a game against Mercer.
