Good Friday morning update

It’s that time again to take a daily look at what is making news in the Alabama athletics universe.

  • Alonzo Gee was not selected last night in the NBA Draft. That really wasn’t much of a surprise, so now he will likely try to make an NBA roster in the summer leagues. Also, there were no SEC players taken in the first round for the first time since 2004.
  • Crimson Tide assistant football coaches don’t typically speak much publicly, but one was saying positive things about star incoming freshman Trent Richardson yesterday. Read this story to see what I’m talking about.
  • There is nothing new on the possible contract extension for Nick Saban, but there are still people writing about it. Click here to see what Chris Low of has to say about the possibility.

What are you guys thinking about Saban’s contract? Is it a pressing issue for Alabama fans or just another item to read in a newspaper (or blog). Comment below.

NBA Draft Thursday, does Gee have a shot?

This is just a teaser to read Thursday’s paper where I will explore the possibility of Alabama’s Alonzo Gee being drafted in the NBA Draft on Thursday evening.

The job of predicting draft outcomes is impossible, so I won’t even try. But I did speak with an instructor whose been working with Gee since the college season ended and he has good things to say about his expanded skill set.

But that’s all I will tell you for now. Pick up a copy for Thursday’s Decatur Daily to read more and watch the draft starting at 6 p.m. CST Thursday on ESPN.

And while I have your attention, I’d encourage you to use one of the newer features of this new blog. On the left-hand side of the page, you will find a poll that will be changed each week. Vote.
