The alumni association office is responsible for submitting designs to the state.

Oh I definitely had one, but it's on the wall now.

I support a different cause with my plate currently, but if we could go back to Blaze or something similarly cool I would happily switch back to UAB tags.

Don't like the current one for several reasons: it's ugly, boring, plain, Ray's idea, etc.

/raises hand for having had one, letting it go, would consider getting another.

I'm in the same boat. I have several of my old UAB tags hanging in my man room, and I too have plates supporting another cause ever since the switch. They're just dull. I would go back to UAB plates in a heartbeat.

Maybe UAB is about more than the football team.

UAB is supposed to be about more than any sports team, but the dragon logo is not just about any one sport. The dragon is UAB's most recognizable logo.

My post has nothing to do with the dragon logo. It is related to the initial post that equated the slogan with the shutting down of football.

Are you still sour about the football/basketball school thing?

I never was. My statement is self explanatory. Football, basketball etc are secondary to what UAB is for.

That is so insightful. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I honestly don't know where we would be without your wisdom.
