    What's surprising about UAB to me is there isn't another sports show in town. Larger towns without professional teams tend to support college teams very well.

    Birmingham is a very cool town but it's not Miami. The night life isn't sucking so much oxygen that it prevents UAB from growing it's fan base. All I can figure is Alabama and Auburn are too popular.
    This.

    I’ve been in Alabama for a week. There are two fan bases: Auburn and Alabama.

    UAB, Troy, USA all compete for crumbs. It’s way worse than we have. At least we have a solid core group of fans and have decent name recognition and respect in the area/around the country. In Alabama between the corrupt government and the university cartel, there isn’t any room for other schools.

    You are very correct, my wife's family is from Alabama and at family gatherings, you are either an Alabama or Auburn fan, no matter where you went. Most of her family are Auburn Alumni with a few Tide Alumni, they practically hate each other at times. Some of them went to smaller universities but they are still forced to choose sides, UAB and the others are not even part of the equation. This rivalry creates untold amounts of money that would not be generated if there were not such a heated rivalry. The state of Louisiana could take a few lessons from them, especially since those same people/politicians griping about revenue are some of the same people who want to see this as a one university state and do everything they can to keep it that way.

    USL was just trying to drive NLU into the financial ditch quicker. And it's working.

    Right, because ULM accepted the Sun Belt invitation before they were offered a CUSA or ACC bid.

    "...is very great full..."

    Would that be grateful?

    It may get worse!!
    The man who prevented UAB from installing a new practice field years back, and told them to just stick to medicine, is now interim chancellor of the entire University of Alabama System. https://t.co/rjoClJhhva

    I've met dozens of UAB alumni over the years while flying around. They all have the same thing in common, they only root for Alabama.

    Do they have all their football assistants though? If so, that makes it worse for us.
