Are the doing the same thing as previous years with pre game party for kids and mascots etc. I saw something where OFU was selling a party pack this year and wondered if they are now trying to capitalize o. What used to be a fun pregame for the kids and free.

According to an email I received yesterday, all kids do get free ice cream and cake. I think the birthday party pack thing might be something different.

Do the kids get actual ice cream and cake or just the song? /s

They get Ice Cream and Cake. Believe it’s all free. Think the ticket package is just marketing what’s already available for everyone with tickets.

Don't think that I'm going to qualify as a kid for the generous handout.

But that's okay. I am saving my calories for the array of celebratory beers that are patiently awaiting my return home this evening.

Go Monarchs!

Thank God they had the foresight to move Vodka Bottles and Oily Rags Night to the Florida Atlantic game.

Quote:January 30

The Blazers are 7-5 in games played on January 30.

1986 - Most exciting game on this date has to be in 1986 when UAB traveled to Old Dominion and an assistant coach was almost arrested. For the second game in five days, tempers flared and the game had to be stopped. It was bad in Bowling Green on January 25 when candy bars were thrown at UAB players. It was worst in this game at Old Dominion when the Norfolk police were called onto the court. This game was televised nationally on ESPN, to the later chagrined of Sun Belt Officials.

UAB led most of the game and the Old Dominion crowd was becoming increasingly upset at perceived bad calls. The ODU coach, Tom Young incited them further by demonstratively complaining to the referees. Midway thru the second half, a charging foul against ODU caused a melee to erupt. The ODU coach ran onto the court protesting the call. Monarch fans began showering the court with plastic megaphones and toilet tissue. Tom Young and Gene Bartow got into a shouting match at midcourt while some UAB fans were hit by the megaphones. UAB reserve Bruce Baker went behind the bench when he said he saw a fan approaching Bartow in a threatening manner. Fans came out of the stands after him and a shoving match ensued. It was reported that a few UAB players went into the stands after some fans who had thrown things.

A few police officers rushed onto the court and went straight to the UAB bench as if that was where the problems started. As order was trying to be restored, assistant UAB coach John Prince got into it, and the officer was threatening to have Prince arrested. At some point, Bartow pulled his team to the locker room where they remained for 20 minutes. As they left the court they were showered with ice and drinks. The ODU AD took the microphone and warned that the game would be forfeited if fans continued to throw things at the players.

Finally order was restored, UAB returned to the court and proceeded to go on a 7-2 run, winning the game 71-58. After the game, blame continued to be thrown in all directions. The police decided not to press charges against Prince provided he didn't file a complaint against the police officer. The ODU athletic director put the blame for it all squarely on UAB. He claimed that Tom Young was going to the mic to restore order when a shoving match initiated by Bartow prevented it. Tom Young said "Everyone saw what happened. We didn't have anyone in the stands and we didn't have anyone fighting the cops." Bartow blamed the ODU administration, saying he can't understand why a school would put their most hostile fans behind the visitors bench and not control them.

The result of the is chaos and the preceding Western Kentucky game was that Sun Belt Commissioner Vic Bubas instituted new rules, putting more security by the visitors bench and not allowing fans to sit directly behind the bench. Cheerleaders and mascots were warned about taunting officials and opposing players, and all handouts and giveaways would be provided after the game, and not before.

Remember that game quite well as I was sitting right behind the UAB bench and in fact know the guy who was yelling at Bartow. When things got crazy and the cops came after him he ran right out The Scope.

We’re not afraid of the UAB geckos. We’ll save your team some cake for the long trip home.
