Can we get a dedicated basketball forum?
I would suggest several boards. One for Mens basketball and another for all sports except Mens basketball and Football. And unrelated uab crap. (non sport specific)

This board could convert to Football or maybe open a new football only board.

This would allow fans of one sport not to have to wade thru posts of other sports.

If not, why not?

RE: Can we get a dedicated basketball forum?
It was discussed before. I don't recall why, but it was nixed. It's hard enough to keep people on topic now. It would just give mods something else to have to police.

RE: Can we get a dedicated basketball forum?
UAB needs as many fans as possible across all sports. Why limit your support to one sport? We should encourage anyone that has an interest/affiliation with UAB athletics to be engaged with ALL of UAB athletics.

Growing support in both primary sports will help get us in a better conference. If you're historically only a UAB basketball fan or only a UAB football fan, your support of the other sport is a great place to start for us growing the fan base. I think splitting into basketball only and football only boards is counter-productive.

It seems there are 6 moderators or more. Its not like each spends every waking moment policing the board.

Forcing fans who only want to read stuff related to one sport might discourage participation altogether.

Many other schools have multiple forums.

Not necessary. Not efficient.

I like getting a variety of everything by visiting one forum. It's good for one sport fans to get headlines of both. It may expand their interest.

While we are suggesting new forums - can we give BNBF his own Stadium Certificates forum?

RE: Can we get a dedicated basketball forum?
The average post stays on the front page for four days during our "busy season" and over a week during the summer. It's not like anyone has to do some deep data mining to find a post.

But by all means, lets divide it up! I also propose separate boards for posters based on Blazerclub giving level, subdivided of course by race and then further subdivided by alphabet with A-M & N-Z boards.

I look forward to chatting with those of you in ACHAMB, the All-Conference Honky A-M Basketball board!

I'm not going to become a football or women's softball fan no matter how much its force fed on me.

I understand why adding football was important way back when but it didn't help in the long run for basketball because we are stuck in this terrible conference and it seems basketball support is dwindling for football.
