MyBB Players sitting out
I am just curious on the players sitting out this year. I think I read somewhere that Koby Jeffries has joined the team and is practicing already. Also wondering if Rashawn Fredricks is still with the team and sitting on the bench at our games waiting to play next year. I am a big UAB fan but I am out of state and watch games on the internet anytime they are on. I think Eshan is doing a great job of recruiting and if the fan base remains patient I think we will get back to our glory years. In basketball it only takes a couple more pieces to change everything.

Jeffries is here and practicing. I saw him on the bench. I assume Fredericks went home for Christmas break and will be back this week.

RE: Players sitting out
Fredricks still appears in the pre game player video which is a good sign.

If you notice on UAB's men's site the team picture doesn't have Bryant or that player who left which is a sign that UAB in this case removes players no longer with the program.

Team has now gotten two good home conference wins in a row.
They can be quite fun to watch.

It's time to stop griping on Ehsan and get out and support this young group.

RE: Players sitting out
I bought the 4 tickets for $40 deal and used them last week and will use them at the next upcoming home stand.

I enjoyed the games last week and thought every player made great contributions.

Average attendance is 2,732. Drop out our only game with over 3,000 in the building, Memphis (5,041), and it drops to below 2,500 a game.

This should be a no-brainer decision for Mark Ingram/Ray Watts/UAB.

No excuses.

Whenever a coach is fired, a new coach must be hired. Is it an excuse or a reason to admit that no demonstrably better coach has applied? Miss State fired their coach and then hired Leach. Can UAB make a similar hire in MBB?

Sure, we can pay another coach a ton of money for the same results.

okay, what will it take to fill the Arena, You want Auburn fans to fill your Arena or Memphis Fans to fill your Arena, Normally its like Duke come to watch the home team guess UAB can't do that yet.

Bama brought in BBHC Oats at considerable money in an attempt to match what BBHC Pearl is doing at Auburn. They had done the same thing for two previous BBHCs and were unsuccessful. Money helps give you choices, but you can't guarantee good results. At our level, it will always be a greater "crap shoot" than at a wealthier program which has greater amenities to offer to a prospect. EX: When I was at Bama (1960-1963) , athletes registered one day before regular students. When I asked for a class a friend had chosen, I was told the class was filled and was closed.
