RE: Demons @ Blazers official game thread
That and our offense, nor defense has looked disciplined or very fundamentally sound. And I'm not willing to say it's all the "untalented" players fault. The fact is McGees team of this year and last hasn't look all that good since OSU last year. He gets a pass for his first year but isn't the second where you're supposed to see the most improvement? He and the team still have my support but that doesn't mean everything is peachy. For those that say UAB fans are whiny and don't support the coach because they come here to voice their displeasure or opinion, you must be comparing us to the cult followers down the road who never dare to criticize the almighty.
If we would just go out and play sound football I, for one, could stomach losing. Every team can't be a top 25, or 50, team for that matter. But so far that hasn't happened.
Then when it does, and all us whiny fans start to claim "moral victories" for "looking good out there today", Someone will be on here berating us for that.

So, whatever.

Everyone complained that Callaway was too conservative. Well we have a coach who doesn't play conservative, and everyone is pissed off because he doesn't follow the Roberts Rules Of Football order.

I like that he doesn't play conventional football. I like that he kicked players who thought they were the Big **** off the team. UAB fans need to support him, and quit whining when he does something they don't think is right. His experiment with the coin toss did not costs us at all today.

I tend to agree. I like a guy who thinks outside the box. The only thing is, McGee has an enormous ego, which is fine. But generally, conventional wisdom is conventional wisdom for a reason. I also realize he's still a pretty new coach, though, and think these things will iron themselves out if he's as smart as I think he is.

Meantime, keep your foot on the gas, coach.

Like you said, MB, we've tried every other way.

Amazing how Smaug can make the same point as other people in such a polite way without being a such a jack@$$.

I'm supporting the team and our coach, and being attacked for it on a Blazer message board.

As this thread proves, most UAB fans suck.

Disagree. It takes CHARACTER to be a UAB fan.

Attacked? By who?

I'm pretty sure you are the one who said UAB fans suck.
