In 20 years, would the BJCC be adjacent to UAB's northern campus?

In 20 years will colleges be sponsoring football teams at all?

Its a student decision, like the Students said they put their vote for the decision, they want a clean, safe and a all American site to visit and not go to the ghetto. Hence Johnson town Indiana the future. An all American cite and place to play that's when we will play.

Amen AB. The flip side is there will be a Finis VI in power by then, so we have to keep doing everything in our power to keep fighting.

The good news is the Bammerist out of state recruiting policies will actually undermine them over time. For every four kids from Texas that come to the Crapstone and pay the out-of-state tuition, one will stay in Bham and be at worst apathetic toward us—not adversarial.

In realistic terms, UAB will be using someone else's stadium for many years - probably decades. The university has a very long list of pressing priorities that come in ahead of an OCS. As long as it can use a stadium for just annual rent, it is likely to put its scarce funding and land allotment elsewhere. Perhaps some time in the latter part of this century, a newer stadium of our own may have more appeal. It might even be an MPF (DOME?)

I was thinking the same thing. Is your family worried you might come back as a zombie or something?

That's a legitimate concern. Considering our president is a neurologist, I'm sure he's more aware of the current and future legal issues than most. But again, he's not backing away from the stadium project.

The future of football as we know it IS a bit shaky. However, I still lean toward the idea that it will still be sponsored and still be popular.
