Also, why do we only canvas, promote, lower prices when things aren’t going great? The only thing they’ve promoted weeks in advance is a USM bus trip.

They didn’t push the Bartow classic after having a pathetic showing in Cayman Islands. didn’t push the game vs MTSU in which we only had 4 losses going into. how about cutting prices then?

They don't want to cut prices for the Bartow Classic because $2 a ticket already goes to Cancer.

RE: Door to Door
Doesn’t do any good to debate Ehsan’s future in Year 2. He gets at least 4 years unless he loses 20 games in a season. But even then, as AB said, our Adshitistration is not going to actively advance UAB Athletics.

Maybe we hire Murry to be our elder statesman assistant? 05-stirthepot

RE: Door to Door
Ehsan is an assistant coach promoted to BBHC for various reasons. He is just now getting his first BBHC experiences in OJT. As he gets more of his own players, his record may improve as it becomes more "his team". Is it just coincidence that UAB football has had its best records under FBHCs with past HC experience, and its worst records under assistants promoted to their first FBHC jobs? If BBHC Ehsan fails to "right the ship" after a few seasons, perhaps UAB should hire an experienced BBHC next time.

BTW, Tonight Duke lost to UNC and Stanford lost by 15 to Utah.

He recruited most of these guys so its already HIS team. But I agree its futile to debate his future until the end of his 4th year.

As for an experienced head coach, Murry has lots of experience. But he has also been fired 3 times. Well, 2 firings and a let go.

I like Murry on the radio & TV though. Gene, on the other hand, was not so good.

Its looking like AK may be fired at the end of the year. So he may still be available in 2 years IF we decide to make a change.

Hard to see us doing better next year.

RE: Door to Door
Among many mistakes Ehsan is making, he fails to recognize or acknowledge understanding that losses of this nature are unacceptable. It’s as though he honestly thinks losses like this are okay with the UAB fan base and program. He’s either naive or just flat out disrespectful in that regard.

RE: Door to Door
IF - a BIG IF - BBHC Ehsan has not righted the ship by season 4 or 5, there will be a varied array of veteran BBHCs looking for jobs as there is after every season. Who UAB can hire for the money UAB can offer will (or SHOULD) determine our choices, not "family" connections.

Former players are often hired.

Before Ehsan got the hc job, AK had to come out and say he wasn't a candidate.
Even though we could not have afforded him then.

Might help if we weren't down by 16 in 8 minutes to every opposing team regardless of how great or crappy they are.

What has AK accomplished while at Ole Miss that makes him desirable for us?

This. No amount of marketing or door knocking can replicate what just winning will do.

While I agree more people will show up by winning more games if we were undefeated we would still be averaging between 4-5K a game. Attendance issues are much greater than simply winning.

Ten 20 win seasons. Not sure we could get anyone affordable with that.The best case scenario is Ehsan is improves a lot. But its not looking great so far.

RE: Door to Door
If Football can get us into the AAC more doors will open up and we will be forced to increase the base salary and therefore have the ability to make higher profile hires. We can't afford AK right now unless he was run off and needed work and he wanted to cut us a sweet heart deal.

The new normal is 2500-4000.
Draping off the upper level ends might help with the home court advantage.

He may be run off. No way we can hire him away.

But, I'm not advocating for him. Its just that former players often get hired.

Look at Anthony Grant.

Look at Anthony Grant.

One thing UAB can learn from AU hiring Pearl and UA hiring their coach is that there is "Name value" in who you hire when going on the recruiting trails. FBC Clark has that "Name value" in this state as illustrated by our new incoming class. UAB needs to gain the same value if it hires to replace Ehsan after season 4 or 5. "Name value" and "family value" can be combined in a special case, but value must be a part of the hiring equation.
