The AAC seems cool with having a basketball only Wichita State.

Wichita State has been a tad more successful than UAB. When we start flying coaches around on private jets for recruiting trips and family vacations, then we can be considered for basketball only admissions.

RE: I’m a little surprised
UAB is coming of age at a time when urban universities are growing in national stature both in academics and athletics. The state universities that became famous during the time of rural supremacy in America are able to hold place due to their age and wealthy older folks who graduated from them and have "deep pockets". One day the urban schools will have those same types of alumni pumping funds into them too. UAB football is alive due to a few of these folks today.

Unfortunately, many of the "old guard" would rather protect their fiefdoms than embrace progress they don't like or agree with at the expense of the whole state. That is why Alabama has so many leaders who "stand in doors"(schoolhouse, courthouse, bathroom, Probate judge, etc), pass laws (like in 2016) in order to sell our workers for the lowest possible pay scales in America, run off both minority workers and our most educated ones and give away state tax revenue in order to attract business.
