Mark Gottfried was forced to resign in his 11th season as UA head coach. With the team likely to miss the tournament for the third straight season, the Tide thought it in their best interest to move on to a new coaching era.

    Sucks. Man did all he could with what he had. Just last week we saw his best player ‘retire.’

    Tzvi T, alot of people in the Alabama fanbase feel that it was the COACHES fault for Steele rushing his recovery, playing him too many minutes & being irresponsible with his health. A LOT of ‘bama faithful blame the coach for it. Not kidding at all. Right after Steele ‘retired’, I got texts from people saying the coach was on the chopping block.

    Yeah, I had a feeling this was coming. A good coach, but just wasnt getting the talent he needed to stay alfoat. They played awful in the 2nd half against Kentucky saturday. Just flat out crumbled down the stretch.
