RE: Bowl game or Fail?
One thing I will say is we have a pretty good group of guys at the skill positions. McGee didn't fail in that area. Everywhere else, who knows? There are far too many question marks at this point, but I at least feel like we have a coach who knows what he wants to do now.

Unless the defensive backs have learned something about positioning, spacing, and tackling, it will be another long season. Hopefully some of the JUCOs we brought in are D-1 corners.

Bill Clark should be named National Coach of the Year if we make a bowl this year.

The only way the season can be a failure is if we have the same win total as last year. 4-6 wins will be success. Anything more than that, we'll need to extend coaches contract. 05-stirthepot

Or if Legion Field collapses during a game. Or if they play a game and literally no one shows up. Or if someone dies from hot dog poisoning.

Anything but a 62-27 loss to a team that had not won a game in 2 years. At home.

Worst loss in UAB history.

Yes

RE: Bowl game or Fail?
Two factors in UAB's bowl quest -- We are likely to have improved performance by our whole team and there are more minor bowls this coming season. We can really expect that the former will be more critical to a bowl invitation than the latter. I expect to see some part of the former played out Friday evening.

And they're not hung out to dry by a total lack of a pass rush.

RE: Bowl game or Fail?
I just want to see solid progress. Six wins is a long way from impossible, but I'm not marking lines in the sand in a coach's first season. Just be better, don't quit, and if we catch a little luck, well...

We'll see.
