It's not that you're a jinx in the sky box...more of not being able to get into the opposing team's heads from there.

Then it must be me! I was in the Club Section for the first time this season.

UAB is 2-2 in games in which I've chosen to sit in there, 0-2 when it is the first time (Tulane last year, Memphis yesterday)...

If that's not a complete lack of focus, I don't know what is.

That bothered me, too, but it was mitigated somewhat by the hussle of the Golden Toe© .

He got shoved down at the goal line, hopped right up, and returned the shove.

Nice to see someone out there showing signs of life.

This. If ever there was a WTF moment in UAB Football, this was it.

He hasn't been here long enough to be infected.

RE: Smaug's $0.02
In the Marshall game, there was a confrontation between a UAB player & a Marshall player on a kickoff.

Ty ended up resolving the issue with the Marshall player.

Yes, but unfortunately, before he realized that it was a live ball, he spent about 3-4 seconds looking down at the ground and going through his kicking motion again after the kick was blocked -- kind of like how a golfer stands over an imaginary golf ball and swings his putter again after missing a putt. By the time he realized what was going on behind him, it was too late. At least he hustled and almost made the tackle, though.

Ya'll are sitting in the wrong Sky Box and/or Club Section.

I prefer the Green Seats.

The real ourcome of the games we attend is dicided by the number of times the opposing players get to "sit" in our endzone.

My 5 year old son had the quote of the day: "This is the worst football game of my life!"

Indeed, little Dragon.
