Hope he doesn't get sacked a lot while performing like the last time he was at UAB. 03-lmfao

How is this helping raise money for football and bringing revenue in? It's free so just not sure. Why not sell tickets And use it to sell tickets to game next day. I hope they use the spotlight to promote the heck out of the program and future games in big time way. My fear is lots of Sam fans who care less about UAB football just get free tickets and we do t get revenue or new supporters. Oh well, I'm sure they know what they are doing. i am very excited and it Will be a great show and great way to start to an awesome weekend!

I had the same thought. Having the concert immediately after the game in Legion Field would boost attendance even more, make us money, and expose people to our product.

But I could also see the argument that we should have a strong crowd regardless and we don't need the narrative out there that the only reason we had a big crowd was because Sam Hunt was performing.

It could go either way.

And maybe Sam Hunt had sm say in the matter.

Sam is the biggest name associated with UAB right now at the height of his career and in the middle of a tour. Doubtful that anyone Approached him with the idea of a free concert. The free part came from his end probably.

RE: Sam Hunt Free Concert Sep 1
Having Hunt perform at or after a game gives the detractors a chance to say attendance was because of him rather than football. The attendance needs to be the result of the game not who performed at it to be legitimate.
