This is exactly it. Without actual evidence of Ingram doing a poor job, this is all just a bunch of rumors on a message board. I can't put any stock into that and won't change my opinion of the man based solely on conjecture.

I don't have any evidence of much, but the vote of no confidence combined with the fact that our boosters didn't want him here makes me believe there is at least some truth to what is being said here.

He posted conjecture, nothing more. Telling me that people know people who don't like the guy doesn't say anything about his job as an athletic director. The guy is mostly making phenomenal coaching hires (on paper, at least). I never see anyone point to anything they actually want him to do differently. It's all just vague references with no specifics. You don't have to divulge sources to say what you actually want the guy to be doing that he isn't currently doing.

There was a vote of no confidence in Mark Ingram? I just googled that and came up empty. Are you talking about Watts?

Please continue on with your fantasy that no one here actually knows anything.

Some folks on here actually step inside Bartow Arena for real meetings with adults on non-game days, but don't let that conjecture fact concern you.

That's not what I said at all. I'm saying people haven't given any specifics about anything Ingram is doing poorly. That's why it's all conjecture. No one is going to be convinced by that, and he certainly won't lose his job over it.

Okay? People go to meetings at Bartow. Great. That means Ingram is doing a poor job?

Edit: It's a little silly how angry you guys are getting that I won't just blindly believe anonymous internet message board chatter that isn't backed by any evidence.

UAB is UAB Athletics' biggest problem. It's not Ingram.

I'm talking about the president and your troll act is getting a bit ridiculous at this point. The vote of no confidence came, the president then hired an AD out boosters were against, and a separate entity has since taken the lead on a lot of things a good AD would be doing. Like I said before, I don't have inside knowledge of anything, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to connect some dots.

I'm not angry, why would you ask, are you mad ?

Nobody here has anything to prove to you. But still you chose to chime in and tell people that are in the know "you don't know $hit". That does get annoying.

Maybe it's because you don't have a connection to internal Athletic's politics at UAB, you assume, wrongly, that none of your internet peers could possibly be wiser than you. - Right here you'd make a good match for Mark Ingram, because both of you would always assume you are the smartest guy in the room.

Well this was precisely my point to begin with. I said it seems like people don't like Ingram simply because Watts hired him. Not sure why you think that's a troll when you just said exactly the same thing.

Because you're making things up.

Like this part here. I never told anyone they didn't know anything. I said conjecture isn't proof.

I don't even have any desire whatsoever to be connected to "internal Athletic's politics at UAB," but people have made the claim that my alma mater's athletics director is doing a poor job. I have an interest in that claim, because all appearances are things are going well and he is making decent hires. There seems to be no counterpoint to that statement. If someone is going to claim he is doing a poor job, I very much want to know it and I expect more than just "because this person says so." I'm being kind to even call that conjecture.
