RE: Ray Watts
I bet Clark, and his wife Jennifer are real happy with the destination. Who wouldn't be?

RE: Ray Watts
Word is players gave input on where they wanted to go and it was a large majority Bahamas. If I was in their position, I'd choose Bahamas, too.

I can only imagine how fun it would be to go to The Bahamas with my teammates.

No maybe fans hate fans...

One can make a selfish decision/choice and not hate others affected. No one ever said Clark or anyone hated the fans. Clark and players are very appreciative of fans. One can be great and you don’t have like every decision they make. Including Clark.

RE: Ray Watts
I'll agree, I'd pick the Bahamas over all the other bowls if I had the opportunity to go as a player, coach, ball boy, or equipment manager. It was just a thought. Nothing more than that. I love the fact we're bowling. Period.

They can hide behind the excuse of picking the best bowl experience for the player, which I completely understand. But, I would love to know if the Bahamas was Coach Clark's first choice, or was the decision made for him by Ingram and Watts?

I'd guessed that the Coach and AD looked at the number of reserved bowl tickets by the UAB fans versus the school allotment and didn't want to embarrass us and the school with a small showing.

What school in CUSA will do any better than us (attendance wise) at any bowl? Answer is probably none. If we were in New Orleans we would have more fans at that game than any school in CUSA outside of Southern Miss, and they played there last year.
