from CBSsports

4:17 p.m. -- Some sad news to report, as Conference USA has confirmed that UAB will not be playing in a bowl game. It was expected, but it still sucks for those kids all the same.

Our friends from ECU will be coming back to the Birmingham Bowl in what could be the last college football game ever in Legion field. They will play an SEC team.

RE: No Bowl for UAB by ESPN's Shelly Smith
Under normal circumstances, ECU vs Florida would be an attention-getting game. We just are not enthused about either team right now. Wonder who will be coaching Florida in the bowl game?

B'ham will have to decide what to do with legion field now with only two annual games to be played there. It is a major expense to keep that facility up year round for just two big crowd games per year - and if the bowl doesn't get a sponsor soon, it may be down to one and that "one" could be moved to Atlanta soon.

We had looked forward to not having to play at Legion Field one day -- but not this way. As was said "Be careful what you wish for as you may get it, but not as you expected"..

It appears that your possession of the "Battle for the Bones" Trophy is forever secure -- damn it! I had looked forward to a future chance to win it back.

I hope it is in an honored place at Memphis -- perhaps their trophy case.
