RE: Middle Tennessee @ UAB
Really looking forward to this game after the exciting win yesterday. Vegas has the game as essentially a "pick em" and I would expect you guys to bring a nice crowd down for the game.

I'm sure AJ Erdely has had this game circled on his calendar.

Brent Stockstill did not not dress against FIU. He started throwing last week and had he dressed I would have taken that as a sign he is playing in Birmingham. Sounds like it didn't go as well as the coaches and medical team would have liked. We shall see how he progresses this week. I would guess it's literally a 50/50 proposition at this point of whether he plays.

Richie James did dress Saturday but did not play. It looks like he should return this week. We got a few guys back against FIU, so hopefully we are turning the corner on the injury front. Tony Franklin simplified the offense for Urzua and he did not throw an interception for the first time in his career. Baby steps. Still AJ should have stuck around! 04-cheers

I believe this is a very important game for MT (as I'm sure it is for UAB). This probably looked like a penciled in win for many before the season, but I believe y'all have likely disavowed everyone of that notion now. Good to have you guys back and look forward to what I expect will be a difficult and physical game Saturday.

"Lightning!" Long time, man! No to your first question! 03-lmfao A.J. is ours, and we be keeping him! I know that Blue Raider Nation is coming to Birmingham in heavy numbers, yourself best be among them! I feel compelled to give you and your well traveled fan base a heads up about driving from the Murfreesboro/Nashville area to Birmingham. Get there as early as you possibly can because of heavy road construction on the I-65/I-20 interchange in the heart of Birmingham a couple of miles or so from Legion Field, bka around here as "Malfunction Junction". trust me on this, the legend is true! Whatever the circumstances, just get there and back safely. Look forward to ya'lls "visit"...05-mafia

Appreciate the info! Unfortunately, I will be in the friendly confines for this one. Don't get to make as many games now that I live up north.

Birmingham seems to be booming.

Where would you say most of the growth is ? It seems a lot is being built South, but they have extended the 3-lanes north of The Ham.

I rarely go West any more, and I"m sure East is growing.

Whereas a lot of folks are comparing the growth in Nashville to Atlanta, I would say Birmingham is becoming the "old" Nashville.

Most is south of downtown, but downtown has been booming lately. Also, north of downtown has seen some growth in Gardendale/Fultondale.

Multiple new restaurants have popped up downtown along with hotels, apartments, and condos. Top Golf is opening in a couple months downtown and our bid for the new Amazon HQ has been getting a lot of attention.

Most of the metro's population lives south of downtown so there's always suburban activity there. But in the last 5ish years, there's been a lot of revitalization downtown and in downtown adjacent neighborhoods in Birmingham city limits. Over the last 4 years alone, there's been over $1 billion in construction in downtown Birmingham. Lots of new condos, lofts, hotels, restaurants, UAB's growth, etc.

I think UAB has to be the feel good story in college football, especially if they go to a bowl game.

The shuttle is awesome. Don't stay away because of Legion Field; the shuttle wipes out the worst parts of the Legion experience. LaTech brought like 12 people. Don't be like them.

Here's the webpage (you'll want the Public shuttle; it's free):

12 people. 03-lmfao

By the way, I sat by them in the second half and have no comment.
