We're sometimes not the most football-savvy crowd (like making noise when WE have the ball, for instance), but yesterday was different. It was a tense, close game, and we were loud when it was time to be loud, and quiet when it wasn't.

Players waving towels helps, but they've always done that.

We were different yesterday. I'll be damned if I know why, but I'll take a big helping, and I bet the team would, too.

A home field advantage. I didn't think it possible at Legion Field, but it was real yesterday. We need to do that every week.

I kept looking around at the home crowd and thinking these are true UAB football fans. It pleased me very much.

Crowd energy yesterday was the best I remember at any UAB football game.

Mark my words - we will win two of games against MTSU, USM, UTSA, or Florida because of our team's no-quit attitude.

We finish 8-4.

Only two I could compare too was when Bryan Ellis led us 99 yards against Troy and the first time we beat USM. This crowd was bigger though....

I thought of those two games too. The USM game was on my birthday. Pretty awesome day.

The Marshall game in 2014 had great crowd energy (and around the same # in attendance) but I think this past weekend topped it. The crowd noise when the field goal was blocked was LOUD!

Has anyone else notice the AD was running across the field looking for some to hug after the block? I must say he seemed to be extremely pumped.
