I was completely surrounded by Blazers at SCAR so my fan experience was great.

I cant wait to return and give em hell!

Remember that game well. One of my fellow Mortimer Jordan alumns Sam Kendrick was a DL for that team.

Whenever the discussion turns to "winnable games" in advance, I recall the 2000 season. Since UAB lacked one conference game that year, C-USA asked us to designate one OOC game as a proxy conference game. We chose @ Kansas rather than @ LSU and you know how that choice turned out. Since we don't even know who will be wearing green & gold on that day in 2017, it just might be that we can win any game we play.

BTW, Labor Day in 2017 is September 4th.

I have often said those were the WORST fans I've ever been around. Hands down

Of all the places I've travelled for UAB games, that Florida game in 2003 was the worst when it comes to opposing fans. I actually felt unsafe walking to the stadium. College kids were f-bombing me and my wife who were wearing UAB gear and just quietly walking to the stadium in a sea of orange and blue.

It IS a possibility, but I don't think it is for 2017.

Been to UF for the FAU game this year, rooting and screaming for FAU. It depends on the fans around you. Had one guy try to sau something to us. He never said anything again (no tuff guy talk. We ignored him and just got louder.)
Been to Ole Miss, not impressed with the stadium or fans.

Either way, I'll have 4 for the first game back.

Troy football fans I encountered in Pike County were both rude and stupid. A deadly combination.

I've been to many college football stadiums, across the country, in all sorts of conferences. Every place I've been, I've met good fans and bad.
That's the only place I've ever left and said that those fans were just downright awful. We tailgated next to a very nice couple in their late 50s. They were very pleasant, and outside of gameday, I think I would have loved liked them.
But when it game to sports in general, they were degrading and condescending...and they were the closest thing I saw or met to nice people.
It wasn't limited to students.

I'm just saying that was my personal experience. I stand firm that, for me (and only me), it was my worst ever gameday experience, and it's not even close.

same for me ....worst fan ever
