Alabama won’t make the Final four with one loss in a down SEC
Colin hasn’t been shy about pointing out that aside from Alabama, the once powerful SEC is eroding. There isn’t a clear-cut second best to team to the Tide, or another team that looks like it can crack the Top 10.
When it comes time to select the Final Four, Colin thinks Alabama needs to go unbeaten, and if they lose a game in the SEC, they’ll be on the outside looking in.
He believes they would get leapfrogged by an unbeaten Oklahoma or Oklahoma State from the Big 12, an undefeated USC or Washington from the Pac-12, Clemson in the ACC, and the Big Ten winner.
Bama better run the table, because if they don’t, they would be left out of the playoff, thanks to their now weakened conference.
Kevin Durant attacks Twitter trolls because he’s insecure that he had to join the Warriors to win a title
Kevin Durant is dealing with the fallout from a self-inflicted social media controversy after responding to a Twitter troll by ripping Billy Donovan and his former OKC teammates. Many speculate, KD failed to switch to an anonymous account he uses to defend himself against critics without being recognized.
Durant has shown rabbit ears to criticism, and regularly fires back at critics, and Colin thinks he knows why the haters get to him. He believes when celebrities like Durant take the time to respond to nobodies on social media, it’s usually because there’s some truth in the criticism that strikes a nerve.
Colin theorizes that in KD’s case, it’s because he’s insecure about having to join a Warriors team that already on a title to win his first, and on some level, it bugs him. Durant knows, deep down, he couldn’t get it done on his own with the Thunder, and never misses a chance to clap back when anonymous trolls point it out.
