While Savannah State is not likely to be a problem, by the time we get to December, UAB may be glad to have had them as our first game. Conference teams are likely to take our team more seriously in 2018 as will the OOC opponents as well. Yes, UAB will be better, but matching our 8-5 record may be difficult as we draw more attention in other team's preparations for us. Our team and coaching staff have definitely gotten the attention of our opponents. and they will have "tape" on what we are likely to do..

It's not like the strength of schedule will matter.

With kids that have to be on the bus at 5:50 am central 160 miles away the next morning, the Thursday night schedule is not going to maximize the likelihood of my attendance.

What ever UaB's 1st half, team total rushing record is, I think we approach that.

that rushing mark may be tougher than e think. Dan Burks and Corey Watkins destroyed Baylor in the first half in about 04 or 05

Is this the year our local fox station starts carrying the games? Full season or not?

I’ll play.

This game should be an opportunity to get Everyone some PT that is not red shirting including walk on. That’s the only reason we won’t score 100. Hopefully we don’t shorten the quarters in the second half so Everyone can play.

SSU = 12
UAB = 68

Att: 26,784 1/2

MVP? Hard to pick one in a game like this it’s a crap shoot so I’ll go with Thomas Johnson.
