Hell, we started passing the ball more after he got hurt.

Yeah, I thought he was dropping his left shoulder and holding it (dislocated) on the way to the sideline and I was like "HOLY ****!". Luckily he's tough as nails and now has time to recover before his bowl game. I saw several guys doing knee stretches etc. between snaps yesterday. UAB's training staff are probably in high gear getting this team recovered. I haven't had one but I've heard that ice baths are really not fun at all.

RE: Smaug's $0.02
We will find out about the bowl game when they are announced next Sunday. UAB will be paired against a team that is at least 6-6 so the team will have to raise their game a bit or more to win.

Wasn't it great to not be UTEP's only win of the season like we have provided to FAU and USM in past seasons? Does anyone believe it is only coincidence that we finish 8-4 in the first season we got competitive facilities including hole-free practice fields and REAL financial backing? "Throwing money at a problem" has worked well again. Perhaps the state can one day try it for K-12 education.

I was really disappointed in seeing fans sitting in the gold seats yesterday when they didn't pay for those seats.

Nah, I'm sure they have a note from the license holders.

RE: Smaug's $0.02
I'm looking forward to the day when UAB can legally charge a premium for the best seats in football like they do in basketball at Bartow Arena. Any one of the new stadium concepts will provide this opportunity which does not exist today at Legion Field.

Multiply 5,000+ prime location seats times $1,000 each and you get a sum that could help the UAB Ahletic Dept. bottom line, but such a charge is not legally possible today.

RE: Smaug's $0.02
There already are premium charges for both. Dad paid extra for his seats in football this season. Those in the Frozen 100 have paid extra for the basketball seats.

While Alabama fans paid money for the gold seats years ago at Legion Field, they are basically worthless now unless Alabama plays in the Birmingham Bowl.

Those Stadium Certificates are LEGALLY valid for ANY football games played at Legion Field forever. As noted in a news article cited in another thread, no charge above a ticket's face value can be LEGALLY made for any seat covered by those certificates.

There are 2,000 seats in sec 10 & 11 in the west stand, 2,000 seats in the corresponding seats in the east stands and the 1,000+ "gold seats" LEGALLY covered by the Certificates IN PERPETUITY. Ignoring the law is something Alabamians have done whenever convenience provided the cover, but that does not make it legal.

How does it feel to feel passion about something and realize that you are the only person in the world that has that passion.

RE: Smaug's $0.02
Charlotte finished 1-11. Ball State finished 2-10. You never know with injuries and a myriad of other factors.

UAB’s defense dominated UTEP, as UTEP went 0-12 for the season. I don’t understand UTEP’s reasons for running the ball up the middle late in the game when you are down three touchdowns.

Lisa can catch the ball high or low, and yesterday it was often low.
