Ladies Night is big turnout for Quarterback Club

Published 12:00 am Friday, November 1, 2002

The Selma Quarterback Club held their annual Ladies Night this past Tuesday night, and Mark Gottfried and Cliff Ellis were the speakers.

With Ellis taking the podium first the thing on everybody’s mind was the upcoming season, and that he only needs two wins to reach the 500 mark.

With basketball season officially under way, talk quickly turned to the upcoming season.

With Auburn returning seven of their main players it will still be an uphill challenge in the tough South Eastern Conference.

With Gottfried taking the podium next, the talk stayed much the same.

With some of the early polls having Alabama ranked as high as fourth in the country, expectations for the Tide are very high this year.

The Tide’s early schedule this year will give them plenty of preparation for their upcoming SEC schedule. &uot;Our schedule this year is very demanding beginning with our first game,&uot; Gottfried said. &uot;Our first game of the year is a nationally televised game against Oklahoma in Madison Square Garden, and that puts a lot of pressure on a team from the get go.&uot;

For the last few years there has been little doubt in anybody’s mind that the SEC is one of the best basketball conferences in the country. &uot;All of the coaches around the SEC will tell you that this is the best conference in basketball,&uot; Gottfried said. &uot;Since the conference split into two different regions, every team in the SEC has won a Southeastern Conference Championship or at least split one,&uot;

Gene Washington will be next week’s guest speaker at the Selma Quarterback Club
