Door to Door
Coach Ehsan tweeted

Door to door tonight to every student on campus! Bartow Arena tomorrow @ 7:00 we need 1000 students.

Apparently Coach has knocked on every dorm room on campus and personally invited students to come to the game tomorrow night. Hope it works. Great that he is willing to do this. Ridiculous that he has to.

I used to feel that way, that my job was to do brilliant, creative stuff and if the world didn't notice then that was the world's loss. When I first heard the phrase "build (your) brand," from Paul Finebaum, I laughed. That was perhaps the stupidest thing I've ever done not involving a woman.

It's part of the package: the world doesn't care all on it's own. You have to tell it to care. This is not a sad thing; it's good to see Ehsan realizing that now, not 20 years later.

RE: Door to Door
UAB is in no position to think it can just play a game and people will automatically show up. Getting a story in the B'ham News and local newscasts and a few well-placed tv and newspaper ads used to be all that was needed to get 4k-5k+ to a game.

Get into the top-25 and it's a different story.

UAB is a football school now. Any basketball coach we hire is going to have a tough time getting folks (students or general fans) to games if they aren't putting out a consistently great product.

It's deeper than all that but that is for another thread.

I'll just salute him for doing it.

I agree, and it really will be in a couple of more years, especially if Clark keeps landing local kids, and stadium is actually built. HS Football is a big deal in Birmingham & surrounding area.

That's BS. If the students would come to the games, it could be both. Dismissing one sport in favor another is a recipe for failure of both sports. It should be neither a football school or a basketball school. It should be a school where the fans and students support it no matter the season.
