So this is how it ends
The 2012 home schedule ends in humbling fashion with a blowout loss to a rival in front of about 300 fans -- many of whom are family members of players, band members, etc., and "have" to be there.

This isn't what an FBS football team's crowd should ever look like regardless of the circumstances. Is it time to ask some hard questions about the long-term viability of UAB football?

RE: So this is how it ends
We haven't won more games than we lost in a season since 2004.

Kids in the 3rd grade have never seen us have a winning season.

Every single time we build a little momentum, a little good will, we squander it with a complete no-show like today, and by 'no-show' I mean ON the field.

The circumstances do matter.

Rocket: Understood, but note the part about "regardless of the circumstances."

We just need to win. The talent level was worse than we thought and it will take two more recruiting years to field a consiststant winner. Maybe we squeak out 6 next season? Look how many Freshman we are playing.

We are playing one hell of a lot of freshmen. Thanks for the reminder, AB. I'm feeling pretty demoralized.

Maybe you can make it more intelligent by suggesting the Bones trophy should be melted down.
