Any confirmation on this? Goodman was wrong about Bassett once.

I think it means that Bassett came here to play for Davis and he realizes that Davis is not going to be here next year, leaving on his own with Cousins in pocket, or being forced out for failing to make his players go to class.

If everything falls like it is looking too, the Mike Davis hire will be the darkest and stupidest moment in UAB history, even worse than the Murry days.

Could it be that the Indiana folk were right about Davis?

Can someone shed some light on the truth and not just speculation or "educated" guesses?

I never thought I'd say this, but at this point I'm more optimistic about the future of UAB's football program than the basketball program.

Do you think if we finish the year with barely enough players to field a team, that an $EC school would want him, even for 1 year?

Maybe his drug problems resurfaced and Davis cut him loose.

Hmm, it could be that Davis is not the problem here at all.

But speculating and going nuclear is so much more fun.

I'm much more worried about the current team than next year's version.

Of course not. He never suited up as a UAB player.

If this is true, I bet it has something to do with grades considering the timing of it.

RE: ARMON BASSETT leaves UAB
If Bassett is the one that was hinted at in the other thread as someone ineligible in addition to Mayfield and Jr, then it is not too bad. I don't count them until they actually suit up. If Bassett flunked out, we have enough time to recover from for that next year. Just one more scholarship.

However, if it is Bassett and another current player on this year's team in addition to Mayfield and Junior, then it's time for some housecleaning.

How the f are they not making grades? As much as I love UAB and the quality of education I received, it is not MIT and there are some really easy majors out there for them to choose if all they care about is basketball.

RE: ARMON BASSETT leaves UAB
If I remember correctly from last night's coaching show CMD said we had 5 or 6 scholarships left. So...
1. AJ
2. TRod
3. Crawford
4. Cameron
5. Milsap
6. Fields
7. Coleman

leaves 6 not counting Bassett or Mayfield...

I'm trying to be optomistic. If he leaves, could this sway a couple of other big time prospects to us? They might figure they'll get more playing time, more headlines, more touches and more points.
