    Coming Alabaman game

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...ections-injury

    Do we really want to be their next opponent or are they going to have to get some campus walkons to field a team from suspensions against Tech?

    Same thing happened to us last year at UAB. We finished the game at UAB with 4 players.

    Crazy that Bama actually won the last 10:30 of the game playing 3 on 5!

    We did the same against UAB - not as close as Bama. But we outscored them

    Will they have to serve a suspension?

    I dont feel great about this. We seem to get every team's best performance in games like this.

    Because teams KNOW we are good -

    They KNOW that they can't afford to over look us -

    All the wringing of hands and worry I think are kinda strange given our history of the past 5 years or so on the road against teams from the A-5 conferences - 9/10 times we give them all they want and usually have a shot to win it at the end, even last year at a final four team in South Carolina

    BTW - Bama is really good this year, could easily finish 2nd in the SEC behind UK

    That said - I don't know how their roster will shake out, I believe if you are ejected you have to sit the next game - but I don't know if that's for just throwing a punch or if its an NCAA rule or just a conference rule

    I think we have a reasonable shot to win it (42% or so). I don't normally think of Bama as a basketball school, they've been improving the last few years, and somehow we catch them on the way up. That's what I meant.

    Don't think I'm wringing hands. Football has taught me a valuable lesson this year about expectations for Tech sports, maybe this year it'll stick.

    Still think we have a pretty good season. 23 wins is my benchmark (54% of scenarios I tested). Outside shot at 27 wins. Regular season, of course.

    Can't compare football to basketball -

    Basketball and baseball are legit upper 3rd national teams, football is not...

    I can't find it in the NCAA rules. Wasn't the ejection/sitting our of Boykins last year a C-USA ruling?

    NCAA Men's Basketball Rule 10, Article 2, Section J states:
    Any individual who leaves the bench area and enters the playing court but does not participate in a fight shall not be assessed a technical foul. That individual shall be ejected but is not subject to suspension.

    Avery Johnson has brought very highly rated recruits into Tuscaloosa. They start I think 4 freshmen. Maybe we catch them still in their learning curve.. but they may click late and make a great push. They have a fantastic coach.

    Last time I looked, UTA was ranked #76 by Sagarin. No way in hell Konkol schedules them. He likes to play swac teams.

    Gee I sure can't wait to get to conference play after going undefeated ooc against all these SWAC teams we are playing.

    That 5-1 Alabama's gonna be a cakewalk. And after Miles we get to host the currently 5-1 cupcake SFA, and then six days later we get 4-2 Cajuns. Easy sailing the next week with currently 4-2 Texas, those nobodies got beat by panzy teams Duke and Gonzaga.

    While not ideal to have nobodies on the schedule, it happens. And while its not great to play a SWAC team- almost everyone does it or the equivalent of it.
