My expectations are for Tech to come out with a win but UABs QB will likely give Tech fits with his legs. Tech has struggled against mobile QBs in the past! Tech will need to establish some type of running game which will be tough with our main deep threat likely out or limited.

But this is CUAB we are talking about and we know how much the conference likes to stick it to Tech in Birmingham 03-wink

I think our offense will be OK but I'm very concerned about J'Mar. He doesn't get enough credit for all the great things he does. Tech will need to lose this game for us to have a chance.

I predict we'll have 30-35k in attendance.

Forecast says bad weather that will impact attendance

Last I heard the bad weather should come after the game. Maybe a little rain during the game.

RE: Tech @ UAB
Really impressed with UAB's attendance this year 04-cheers

The best team doesn't always win and I expect UAB will be more up for this one than us so it should be a good game. That said who knows if we are the better team this year - still early in season

Was in Birmingham for the last game we played, but can't make it this year due to a move. Your fans were a class act.

Here's to a great game and no major injuries.

We haven't?

If Clark has the defense up to the challenge I like our chances. I view Tech as the cream of C-UAB, but if we can hang in there with a chance at end, maybe the refs can make up for the last game at the hoops tournament.

I forget what happened. I know Tech didn't win the tourney, and frankly don't even remember if we made it to the finals. Please refresh my memory.

Had a bench clearing brawl with UAB during the regular season and lost the game. Meet them in the tournament and blew them out at home. Then we got smoked by Marshall the next game who shot lights out, they couldn't miss never seen nothing like it before.

Is Bonnette good to go? Man, I wish Henderson had stuck around. Do we have another deep threat? We have been inconsistent on both sides of the ball. Bill Clark(?) is an excellent coach and I would think he brought in some immediate help with JC players. We will have to play a very good game to get a W.

FR Hardy is one to watch at outside WR to replace Bonnette. He had pretty good game last week. Also look for another true freshman Scott on the outside. Both are young but they are our future star WR's.

Nope. Cameron and Driskell were great, but the long ball is what we have been missing. Since we've been in CUSA we've not had a threat like Smith, and I'll stick to that.

Sokol threw a really nice long ball
