RE: Birmingham Iron to Honor UAB Football at Inaugural Game on 2/10
I haven't been to a game yet, but have watched both on TV and like what I see. Defensive team, blue collar, fits with the Steelers affiliation for sure. I would rather see some UAB guys out there, but it is just me wanting a team I root for to have players I like. Just like Tampa Bay, I always root for them to draft UAB guys (JJ Nelson....come on down and reunite with Arians).

I do think the Iron missed an opportunity with not keeping Shaq, as it could have peaked more interest of some, and I am sure there are better backs than Trent but they needed that Bama name to sell tickets and for goalline rushes. Hoping the next year we see some UAB guys out there, but it won't deter me from watching. The Iron need UAB...it's facilities, our coaches support, and the city support. They need UAB more than UAB needs them.

I have seen some good mentions about this including from Reggie Barlow who was in the NFL & played at ASU I believe.
