Slant, I agree. I was going to say, the November and December games actually seem better then they were in the mid-late 90s. I came on my official visit for football in December 1994 and almost NO ONE was at the basketball game I went to. But I saw Carlos Williams show out! The whole time I was a student in the 90s, those games were poorly attended, even by the students. Today's students are WAY better.

RE: UAB men's athletics needs to learn something ASAP
overall, i agree. however, lumping "losing the 2nd half" with what happened against memphis is ridiculous.

oh how i miss the days of XCMA when every game in Bartow was a packed house
(for those wondering, thats sarcasm, i just figured i'd beat somebody else to the punch)

Bartow Arena is too big for UAB basketball. There, I stated it once again.

It won't be when we are back in a conference with Louisville, Cincy, Memphis, USF, UCF, Houston, SMU, and some of our current conference mates.

I wish that would happen, but just don't see it. BE will take the best of our conference and we'll be stuck with MTSU and FAU

And we play fun to watch ball, and win.


To go back to your original post, Slant, I think that is exactly the point that Coach Haase was so unsatisfied about yesterday. He knows what it takes, and that's what he wants to see, consistently.

I wonder how many universities have a student body that supports other universities over the one they attend? Until that changes, there won't be much student participation at UAB.

I am terrified that the basketball team will sleepwalk into Troy's shiny, new arena and get waxed like Mi$$ St. Maestri's teams live and die by the three and UAB is terrible at guarding shooters behind the arc right now... thankfully our opponents miss more than they make because we give them a lot of wide-open shots.

Who is the best expansion option left in C-USA?

We're in the best market. We have the best basketball history. Maybe they would consider Marshall. ECU and USM offer small markets and good football historically, but will they be more attractive than us? The Big East could be looking for multiple schools anyway, so we could all get in.
