If not, he has now. Don't be naive. This is one of the CENTRAL places that all parties on all sides come to get their news. #wavesatDrWatts

If that's the case, I'll go ahead and say it….

I sent two kids through UAB. One was involved in athleticsand loved every minute.

I've been following the Blazers since Bartow. Coach Clark is one of the best coaches (people) to happen since Bartow.

IF they kill football. I'm done. There, I said it and I mean it.

A lot of us feel the same way. It would be a disaster for them!

It's going to be catastrophic.

Can you imagine the backlash from the national media?

If we're talking about the backlash after they close our football down, I'd just as soon not.

True, I wish there was a lot of backlash now. Most of them have no idea how serious this really is.

I'm just one person – and just one long time fan and supporter of the school. But I'm as serious as a heart attack. If they kill football, I'm done.

They can have their damn bowling team.

There will not be a bowling team if football is gone. However many women's sports it takes to get 85 scholarships back is how many women's sports will be axed too.

They have an out. I hope they make us all look stupid. I will gladly wear that banner because that means football is safe.

This.

Losing football has a cascading catastrophic effect on all athletics, and will KILL our women's teams.

I will gladly wear the mantle of paranoid. But they can't wait until the "study" is finished, nicely wrapped and then ponder the consequences. At this point scheduling is going to be a nightmare anyway delaying only makes it worse. If they prove us right they had better be ready to pay out a bunch of money to get out of current game contracts because there won't be any players left after the mass transfers. They players that would be left simply wouldn't be safe going out an playing SEC teams just to fulfill any obligations.
