  • Roll 'Bama Roll: Jumbo Package: Noted Stones fan Nick Saban admires Mick Jagger's longevity

    Happy Friday, everyone. As you may imagine, pickings are slim, but we will open with 247sports' Barton Simmons examining the impact coaching turnover has had on the program.

    "If you look across the SEC, the conference is so intensely competitive that they're always jumping from job to job. They're always stealing coordinators from one another. This year, Tennessee grabs Derrick Ansley, who was two years removed from being at Alabama. Tennessee steals the offensive coordinator from Georgia in Jim Chaney. Half of Georgia's operation staff is one-time Alabama guys.

    "There's this sort of incestuous and very intensely competitive nature in the SEC.

  • Fansided: Alabama Basketball: Open practice showed a new look Tide

    Alabama basketball fans already knew Nate Oats had 'it' going before the open practice on Wednesday. Well known was his accomplishment of quickly building a full 13-scholarship player roster. Oats brought in a quartet of new players and re-recruited the entire previously committed 2019 class. Except for Tevin Mack, he also held on to every key returning player from last season's roster.

    The new roster was partially unveiled on Wednesday. The 'partially' was all because of good reasons. Kira Lewis Jr. was away at the final team selection workouts for the U19 National Team. Transfers James 'Beetle' Bolden and James Rojas were finishing some coursework and will arrive in Tuscaloosa in July.

  • Roll 'Bama Roll: JP: Unbuckled with the foot on the gas -- Alabama basketball holds open session

    Just as we enter the dread months, where all that sustains us are MLB games, comes some truly great news: Alabama basketball held an open practice yesterday.

    And, under new coach Nate Oats, there was a lot to love here, at least from this preliminary glance.

    Oats has been rolling with the shade too, overt and otherwise:

    University of Alabama basketball coach Nate Oats held an open skills session on Wednesday, allowing the media a first glimpse at the Crimson Tide roster for the 2019-2020 season.

    "I like the attitude," Oats said following the 60-minute session.

  • Roll 'Bama Roll: Get Your Popcorn: At least six basketball programs to receive notice of major NCAA violations

    LSU? Auburn? No reason...

    Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports

    If you're a sweaty, piss-poor liar like Will "Strong Ass Deal" Wade, July is probably not going to be good for you -- despite locking down a 5-star recruit and winning the SEC regular season title in 2019.

    If you're Bruce "Cheating is civil disobedience against antisemitism" Pearl, the summer may not be a good one for you either -- despite locking down a Top 20 recruiting class, winning the SEC tournament title, and making a Final Four run in 2019.

  • Roll 'Bama Roll: Oats Hints at Alabama Basketball 2019-2020 Schedule

    Alabama head basketball coach Nate Oats spoke with the Alabama Sports Writers Association on Sunday and hinted at how the schedule for the coming campaign might take shape.

    The first news announced was that the Crimson Tide will face Belmont in Huntsville, on Dec. 21. Interestingly, the Bama softball team played Belmont in the Rocket City back in April.

    Oats also remarked that his team will be playing a game in Birmingham again this year, though the details have not been released as of yet. "We're close to finishing up the game in Birmingham." The Crimson Tide have not had much luck at Legacy Arena (aka BJCC) as of late, having lost the last three times (Oregon, Clemson, Texas).

  • Fansided: How Nate Oats will use the Crimson Tide roster with or without Quinnerly

    Before considering the Alabama basketball lineup for next season, some Tide fans may need some catching up. Along with lots of new players, there are also new rules changes for the 2019-20 season.

    The NCAA has approved moving the 3-point line back to match the distance used in International rules. The past season distance was 20 feet and nine inches. It will be 22 feet and 1.75 inches next season. The increased distance was used in the NIT Tournament this past season. According to the NCAA the result was the percentage of three-point makes dropped from 35.

  • Capstone Report: David French vs Sohrab Ahmari: Who has a proper understanding of man in politics?

    Libertarians and classical liberals place too much faith in man. That's understandable for secular believers in a libertarian philosophy, but should be impossible for someone like David French, a Presbyterian who should understand Calvin's excellent warnings about man's sinfulness.

    Calvin describes the state of man in a way that evokes images of Machiavelli. Calvin warned that men are, "perverse, corrupt and lacking any good." The practical political philosopher Machiavelli described the dangers of relying on men since, "One can make this generalization about men: they are ungrateful, fickle, liars, and deceivers, they shun danger and are greedy for profit.

  • Fansided: Alabama Basketball: Nate Oats finalizes roster with former 5-Star PG

    Alabama basketball coach Nate Oats has pulled in the player expected to the Crimson Tide point guard of the future in Jahvon Quinerly. Quinerly exited the Villanova Wildcats via the transfer portal several weeks ago. Nate Oats reached out to the young man immediately.

    As a member of the 2018 class, Quinerly was rated a 5-Star and the No. 29 player in the class by 247Sports. Jahvon was also a McDonald's All-American. At Villanova, learning Jay Wright's system slowed his progress and playing time. Having to mesh with an offensive system that does not leave the ball in any certain player's hands was a transition for Quinerly.

  • Roll 'Bama Roll: REPORT: Jahvon Quinerly Commits to Alabama Basketball

    Evan Daniels of 247sports reports that Alabama will be making another high-profile addition to the team in Villanova transfer Jahvon Quinerly. The former 5-star McDonald's All-American point guard found himself playing only 9.1 minutes per game last season behind rising junior Collin Gillespie who won't be turning pro or finding the pine anytime soon. Quinerly averaged 3.2 ppg this past season.

    Unless he can get a waiver, he would have to sit a year and have three years remaining. Sitting out would not be such a bad thing with James Bolden having only one season to play and the distinct possibility of Kira Lewis leaving for the NBA after next season.

  • Touchdown Alabama Magazine: Should Bryant-Denny Stadium be able to sell Alcohol?

    Yesterday the SEC announced that the ban on the distribution of alcohol at sporting events would be revised and the decision to sell will be left up to the universities themselves. For some this is huge news, it will help teams draw more fans in and keep them longer. It will also be a new avenue to make money on game days. But the lift of this ban had no such effect on the University of Alabama.

    Below is a statement from the university:

    "This new policy allows each campus to decide what is right for them.

  • Fansided: Alabama Basketball: Nate Oats' first major recruiting test comes in November

    When most Alabama Crimson Tide fans are laser-focused on a CFP run, Alabama basketball coach Nate oats will be focused elsewhere. When November rolls around, Nate Oats' mind will not be on a Crimson Tide football field.

    He will be preparing his team for a new season. Alabama basketball fans already know, as do the current Tide players, those preparations, especially the practices, will be intense. In the midst of that frenzy, Nate Oats will also be drilled down on one or two, maybe three elite prospects.

    Nate Oats has already had recruiting successes as the Crimson Tide head coach.

  • Fansided: Alabama Basketball: Minus one now could mean plus one and more later

    It has been widely reported Alabama basketball player, Tevin Mack is finished with the Crimson Tide. He first tested the NBA Draft waters, and to the surprise of no one who knows basketball, found he is not yet ready for that level.

    As that reality slowly seeped in, he began informally working out with teams, not located in Tuscaloosa, AL. Clemson, close to his home, was rumored to be one, Georgia Tech another. Where the transfer portal leads is no longer of concern to Alabama basketball fans. For us, and for Nate Oats, it is time to move on.

  • Fansided: Southeastern Conference spring meeting begins with some tough issues

    It always seems a bit ironic the Southeastern Conference chooses such a laid back setting for its spring meeting. If there is one sure thing about the high-octane SEC, laid back, it isn't.

    Just steps away from a sun-swept beach, there are agenda issues that are sure to bring disagreement. And there is one non-agenda item that will come up in most media questions about the state of basketball in the SEC.

    A healthy portion of the time will be spent in self-congratulatory praise. It will not be undeserved. Southeastern Conference football programs gained four of the top eight spots in the final AP Poll.

  • Roll 'Bama Roll: Post-Holiday Double-Size Jumbo Package: From 5-star point guards to scheduling to Bart Starr tributes

    The normally garrulous Tua Tagovailoa was very cagey when asked about Coach Sark. It seems that there will be a lot more wrinkles to Alabama's offense in 2019 than what many expect -- and certainly than what the offense showed in the Spring game:

    Q: What are some things he's added to the offense this spring?

    Tua: "I mean, I don't want to speak too much about that. We want to kind of keep that within our playbook and keep it between all of us at Alabama. But I'm excited for what he has to offer to us, and I'm excited for the season.
