Obviously not.

I remember reading that you took off a lot of work etc. back during the fight to bring football back. Think you'll be able to make the trip?

That is correct. However, I won't be making this trip, unfortunately. Mainly because I started a new job in September and can't take optional time off yet.

I'm sure we will have a watch party at work since it is happening during the day.

We really need to put together a GoFundMe for the band and spirit teams. If enough of us kick in it should be doable.

I don't expect Ray to pony up even a nickel.

A little disappointed that I can't make it to the game, but the players should be very excited and deserve the vacation.

Can I assume this is the first time the UAB football team has played outside the USA? Any team from the state of Alabama?

Going to be tough since they just crowdfunded new uniforms.

Didn't AU or UAT go to the Japan Bowl back in the 80's ? I'll look it up.

Nope.

Auburn and Villanova played to a 7-7 tie in Havana.

Ohio is sending 80 members of the Marching 110. They marched in the Macy's Day Parade and had an international trip last year so getting 80 seems like a win to me.

I wouldn't expect a huge crowd from Ohio considering the price but I think we will bring a respectable number of fans. We tend to travel better than other MAC programs.
