Exclamation Conference USA West Stock Exchange
https://www.underdogdynasty.com/2019/1/1...thern-miss

UAB Blazers
Cyrus Smith: Buy. New facilities on the way? Check. Bill Clark still the head coach? Check. Does the roster have good talent? Check. Stability, fan support and lack of a presence on the recruiting trail have historically went against UAB but the program is now in good shape at all three levels. The future looks great not only in the short term, but in the long term as well.

Tanner Spearman: Buy. UAB’s rise from the ashes has been quick, and there’s no sign that they’ll be slowing down any time soon. As long as Bill Clark is in Birmingham, the Blazers will be contending for conference titles.

Jared Kalmus: Buy. I don’t know what the hell I could possible knock UAB on. Championship coach that’s flown under the P5 radar, a highly-promising returning sophomore quarterback, strong fan support, a new stadium on the way... If Bill Clark can just increase the Blazers’ recruiting success a bit then UAB could compete for the NYE bowl in the future.

Adam Woodyard: Push. Not trying to be contrarian, it’s just that the article is “are they on the rise,” and I don’t see UAB winning more games next year than they did this year. Clark has done something historic, and there were enough close games in 2017 that we should’ve seen 2018 coming. Another conference title is absolutely on the table, and if the Blazers run the table, with or without a victory over Tennessee, I will happily eat my words.

I think you missed one:

Joe Londergan: Buy. I believe in Bill Clark and his staff. I believe in the talent on this roster. I believe in all of the recent new investments in the program. I don’t think this program has peaked yet.

Also: It blows my mind that someone even mentions the possibility of us going to a NY6 bowl in the not too distant future..... not because I don’t believe in our team/Clark or anything, it’s just crazy how far we’ve come since I was a student there (the Callaway/McGee era), which was not all that long ago.

I believe in Clark's ability to get us there, but I think the biggest obstacle will be whether CUSA would provide a strong enough schedule. Teams from the AAC or MWC have a leg up there.

I did not see the final tabulation of conference W-L bowl game records. How did C-USA's 4-2 conference record stack up across the nation? At one point, it was the leading conference on the list.

CUSA had the best records of all conferences. However, had the 2nd worst revenue income from the bowls ahead of only the MAC... even behind the Sun Belt.

The problem with counting revenue from bowls is that the P5 conferences have the million $$ bowls locked up, and it would take 10 (*EDIT) $100,000 bowls to match one $1 million pay out bowl. The resulting gulf between the two illustrates the financial harm done by the present system to the "have nots" in collegiate football. The main result is that the P5 programs get 7 or 8 (usually high revenue) home games while G5 teams feel fortunate to have 6 home games of any kind.

My guess is that you weren't a math teacher.

When study hall students asked for help with math, I told them my math skills helped make me a history teacher. The main point of my opinion still stands.
