RPI WATCH: 2/27/12

Fear the fist pump. Fear it. Roll Tide.

Well, you can't spell "West Virginia" without "N-I-T." If the Mountaineers keep on this course, Bob Huggins will become all too familiar with how to spell the name of "the other tournament."

Other weekend lowlights included yet another Virginia Tech heart-breaker, a 1-17 conference finish for woeful Loyola and UTEP magnetically snapping back to .500 by being crushed at UCF. However...

None of that matters, baby, because the Tide are rolling into March. That's right, Alabama's back as a signature win.

Anthony Grant is following the tried-and-true method, patented by Frank Martin, of tearing down his players mid-season so they will destroy everything in their path in late February.

Saturday, it was Mississippi State, which has lost five straight to position itself precariously on the bubble.

Could unbeaten Kentucky follow next week? The Tide did give the Cats a tougher game in Lexington than anyone else...
