No reprieve for Alabama’s Gottfried this season

The raging debate over Mark Gottfried’s future has become both tiresome and tedious. For everyone’s sake, let’s hope it ends soon.
Some have argued that basketball seasons can turn on a dime.
What if Ronald Steele comes back? What if Alabama gets on a roll (it has three of the next four at home)? Remember, Alabama was the preseason pick to win the SEC West and make the NCAA tournament.
Forget about it.

This basketball team has run off the track and it’s not getting back. Two wins this week at home (will anyone bother to show and cheer?) will not change that. Eventually, it will have to go back on the deadly road where the Tide has lost 14 straight SEC games
