I Support The Troops But Not The Mission

That’s as close as I can come to explaining my thoughts on the present predicament of the Bama Basketball program.

I don’t know what that is supposed to mean in a political sense. It does not make sense to me from that perspective because of the dynamics of the situation. That’s okay. Those people have no duty to explain themselves to, or to be understood by, me.

But in a basketball sense, what I mean is that I support our program and I support our players. I intend to spend my time and my money giving them support when the program is not moving in the wrong direction. But I think our coach needs to explain why he should keep his job and what he would change to prove he is the guy to fix it. I don’t believe in meaningless, non binding resolutions. Until I know what the mission is, I am voting to cut its funding; or at least the part of the funding I can control.
