RE: Fail for Birmingham or UAB?
Dude is clearly a troll that can't keep to one message. Is this an article about UAB Alumni, Birmingham residents, students, C-USA, or millennials and their voting/living habits?

Well, someone already did the "What's new on Netflix" story on al.com this month so he had to write something

They must get paid by the click or the number of comments.

I especially like the part where he insinuates that the 90's were the golden years of UAB Basketball.

He made a good point about the students, the tickets are free and you get a ride to and from the game. The students support has been beyond bad. Marketing by UAB, CUSA the city, legacy arena, uptown and every other venue that could have benefited from more bodies in the seats is bad.
Another reason, if you are like me, and you purchased the game package last year, you felt burnt after UAB first game loss. I purchased the package with the image of finals on my mind. Now most here know, I am a big UAB kool -aid drinking, GLASS IS ALWAYS HALF FULL WHEN IT COMES TO UAB, but I am purchasing tickets one game at a time. I expect a much better crowd tonight, and when we win, an even better crowd Friday and Saturday. Heck, if we keep winning, maybe the students will show up.

This probably comes off sexist even though i'm trying not to sound that way, but i've always wondered if the student attendance is hurt by the fact that only 37% of the student population is male. While plenty of UAB female students love sports (Including my girlfriend) I would say that a larger percent of females aren't into sports when compared to men. I've also noticed that after the team started losing the frats at large have almost completely disappeared from the games.

To clear the matter, yes, it is very sexist.

many of UAB's best student fans are female.

8000 at the first round of the sec tournament. if you watched the game that's a stretch..all conferences are having the same issue. Ours is much more irrelevant from a TV standpoint, which is why we need out ASAP

I see no reason to purchase the package just to watch the other crappy teams play.

It's hard enough watching my own crappy team (at times) play.
