Team preview: Alabama
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Asked about the prospects for his team this season, Alabama coach Mark Gottfried is characteristically candid. What else can you be when you've lost three seniors who had started for four years, including the former SEC Player of the Year, plus one of the best point guards in the program's history?
"We don't have any strengths," Gottfried said. "We have none. I don't think anybody's lost what we've lost."
