Nick Jacobs- gone from Alabama

DJC and I pretty much saw this back in March... no surprise, but it leaves us really thin inside. I honestly don't know how we are going to compete in the SEC with the lack of size coming in next year.

Christophe Varidel transfers to Bama

He will be eligible as a senior for the upcoming season.  He was part of the Florida Gulf Coast's Cinderella team before transferring to Chaminade.  Varidel also considered Fordham and UCLA.  He looks like a good 3 point shooter, so this will provide additional depth on the perimeter if nothing else.

SEC/Big 12 challenge matchups

We are not participating.

Arkansas-Iowa St, Florida-Kansas, and Texas-Kentucky are the only good match-ups IMO.

Unrelated- I'm probably going to take on a smaller role on this blog starting next season... my disgust with our AD concerning hoops makes me a subjective poster. I've always tried to go the objective route, but to be honest I can't do that this coming season.

Oregon St fires Craig Robinson (Obama's brother in-law)

Seems like they didn't blink about a $4 million buyout despite not having the funds we do.

Add to this what Bill Battle said recently about our basketball program, I continue to scratch my head at the direction we are going (hint- it's approaching Gilligan's Island hilarity).
