Overlooked sport

Only in the SEC can men's basketball be an overlooked sport.

But football's dominance in this region -- and let's face it, in this decade it has grown even more -- completely dwarfs basketball.

As it is, basketball has the shortest season in terms of fan attention of any of the three major sports. People around here won't look at a basketball game until after signing day in February.

This season, it may be a good thing for Trent Johnson.

But it is the way just about everywhere in the SEC with the exception of Kentucky.

So when the league flames out in the NCAA Tournament again, fans shouldn't really complain. This is just the way it is in the SEC right now.

Unrelated but important, from Randy Rosetta of 2 The Advocate: "when a young and inexperienced QB struggles ... the offense is ... just too complex."

"Crowton has been a very good offensive coordinator when he has a seasoned QB. When he’s had to start over with a younger player, success has waned.

"Bottom line is, Crowton's offense isn't working any more, just as before, when it stopped being effective at BYU and Oregon."

You'd think Crowton [and Miles] would be smart enough to figure that out. I think Guilbeau also suggested simplifying the offense.
