Alabama fans call for Avery Johnson's job after loss to Florida
It has been a rough week for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Entering the week, they were 6-4 in SEC play with two great chances to boost their NCAA Tournament resume.
Instead, they exit the week with a 6-6 SEC record and a 15-10 overall mark. That is the result of blowout losses to Mississippi State (on Tuesday night) and Florida (on Saturday afternoon).
After a particularly embarrassing home effort against Florida on Saturday, fans weren’t happy with coach Avery Johnson. When Alabama sent out the below tweet, fans responded in force, calling for his job:

Pathetic effort by players and coaches. The entire week was a total waste of time.

Not our day? We should just forfeit the remainder of the season if that’s the effort we expect from this team.
