Yep…. we’re 4-11 in SEC play, and have won ZERO games on the road. We gave up a 7 point halftime lead to end up losing by 6 points. Is it pathetic? Yes. Can our program ever get over it? That is another topic for another time.
Alabama fans have been screaming about how bad these last two years of Gottfried ball have been, and I can’t blame them any more. They’ve even resorted to comparing stats between Mark Gottfried and David Hobbs. Just for the sake of argument, let’s take a look at the last 2 seasons for Gottfried and Hobbs at Alabama. This information is provided by StatSheet.com:
Statistically, it is really starting to look worse than anything Hobbs did. Of course, I should mention that in my younger days, I didn’t watch much Alabama basketball until Gottfried arrived, so I don’t remember any of the ill feelings that developed during the Hobbs era. But, Hobbs was at least able to get a hand full of road wins and went 12-20 (better than 11-20), doing it all without Ronald Steele…. sorry, I couldn’t resist.
Just remember this juicy little fact: Hobbs went 4-12 on the road in the SEC, Gottfried has gone 1-15.
While your Gottfried rage is starting to build, I suggest you go check out what The Capstone Report has to say regarding Kevin Scarbinsky’s column in the Birmingham News. Cap does an excellent job as always, showing once again how my posts pale in comparison to his.
Like this, only Cap probably isn’t physically deformed
