Agree here that we are a football school now. We need basketball to do better to get us into a better conference. Unfortunately attendance will not get better at basketball games until we start winning more games.

If Ehsan doesn’t do well in the conference tournament he might need to go. Unfortunately I don’t think we can financially afford to let him go after this season.

RE: Door to Door
Good grief. Go look at our record. You guys act like we are 2-18. We are winning games. This "Oh god we aren't winning" is being blind. Of course we could be winning more. But not everyone gets to go undefeated.

I agree that Ehsan should go. He needs to get out of here as soon as he can. He is a good person and deserves better than the crappy fans that UAB has.

I'm kinda ticked that people (in general) demanded that Ehsan get hired. They were gonna boycott and bring pitchforks and torches if he wasn't retained.
Now that he's here and doing well, there's no one going.

Eshan is still a young coach and no one can argue there are a few glaring weaknesses in his current head coaching ability. Will he improve with experience? Possibly, but not a guarantee. D-I college basketball isn't a participation trophy sport. It's show consistent improvement, win games, win championships or be gone. That's the reality.

He's just in year two of a five year contract. While there is a buy out, he's not going anywhere anytime soon. But, if he doesn't see the need to make a staff change or two this off-season, learns how to correct the inconsistent and constantly mis-aligned defense AND realizes as a head coach he can not be the players buddy the way an assistant can, then I don't think he makes the whole 5-year run.

That is, unless the stars align and he pulls off a regular-season or conference tournament championship. I'm just not seeing the consistent level of performance needed at this point.

Still I'm at each and every home game, because I come to see UAB play. No matter who the coach is or the opponent is.

RE: Door to Door
i admit, i cant understand the students not showing up. i knew NOTHING of UAB bball before i enrolled. i wasnt a huge college bball fan. in my 8 years as a student, i dont think i missed 10 home games...and they were some of my best college memories (and yes, there were plenty of games where i was sitting in a nearly empty student section)

Look at our record. We are 13-9 in non-exhibition games.
Lets divide college basketball teams into 3 categories using RPI:

1-75 good teams
75-199 average to below average teams
200+ cannon fodder.

We are 2-9 against teams that aren't cannon fodder. Put another way, in games that are meaningful, we have a 22% win rate.

Last year, one of the worse seasons in UAB history, we actually had a much higher win rate against non-cannon fodder teams than we have this year at 45%.

So i guess you are right. People should stay away and not support this team. Because it's not just about winning. It's about beating the good teams. If they can't do that, screw them.

Like I said. UAB fans suck.
