I Would Applaud Bama's Win...

I would be rubbing it in everyone's face that Bama beat UT in yet another sport, but let's face it: both of these teams suck.

Why is it that SEC schools don't generally recruit or manage to sign players who can actually shoot a basketball? Then, these same schools don't do well in the tourney.

Bama rarely has anyone on the roster who can shoot. They have athletes galore, but no basketball players.

At any rate, UT will probably get payback at home on the 26th. I can't imagine either team will be playing after they bow out of the SEC Tourney.

I suppose to acknowledge how bad Tennessee is and how bad Bama is.

You disagree?

I would never nor will ever applaud anything Bama does. Screw 'em.

You are right. Both teams sucked Saturday, I thought Bama sucked more just because I'm a Tennessee fan but since it was played in T-town then that was the difference. Yep, the 26th should be different. Thanks for stopping by, cya

Good shooters are becoming extremely rare now. In the NBA and in College. The mid range jumper is almost none excistant. I would give my left nut to have Lofton back again.

We are pretty bad at this point, the coaching seems a little goofy, leave Stokes on the bench for the last 5 minutes, that seems like no way to win a game, also throwing Golden under the bus is no way to make the team play harder, just bad decisions by Coach Conzo

I'm hoping that was no pun intended, since he almost did...

Vegas had Bama as a four point favorite. So it is not like it's a huge upset or anything. We just aint all that and a bag of chips.

In actuality a 12-6 record in conference and a 20-10 record overall, with a chance at the tourney is still very possible if not plausible. This is not necessarily saying that Tennessee is good but a look at how pathetic the SEC is. There are 2 teams that are good in Mizzou and Florida, 2 teams that are above average in Ole Miss and Kentucky. And 2 teams that are average in Tennessee and Alabama. The other 8 teams are pretty awful.
