Very few coaching changes are made during the season. Only time it really happens is when a coach breaks rules, gets a DIU etc. which Ehsan certainly has not done.

Matter of fact, he has done a sensational job of representing the program when many of you didn't deserve it.

That last rung on the ladder is next. When you grab for it don't be surprised that you fall off of it when that doesn't work either.

I was ok until you stated that “we didn’t deserve it”

I am not in favor of firing a coach unless serious misconduct is involved. I want to give this team every chance to turn thus season around. In my opinion, firing the coach mid season would most likely ruin any chance of success for the team.

I am going to continue supporting this team by attending games and let the season play out. The players deserve it.

I don't think a mid-season firing is appropriate, but Ingram should absolutely be ready to pull the trigger at the end of the year. I'll be surprised if he actually does it though.

This. Taking nothing away from basketball, sincerely, but football has taken us to a place we couldn’t have reached. Just in the recent case, CUSA was more than prepared to revoke our membership without football. Where do we end up? This applies all the way back to the time the football program went 1-A. Look around and tell me what conference, here in the south, we would play in without football.

But this does confirm that changes have to be made pronto. AAC is interested in our program, especially with the recent positive publicity and new stadium. But we don’t need anything to give them pause. If basketball is back to even 80% of what it was that just eliminates a hurdle.

The Southern Conference, which looks a hell of a lot better than whatever version of CUSA we are in.


THOSE are our peers? Remember it’s about more than sports.

Robert Ehsan is destroying our beloved basketball program. How can you be ok with that? I know you've been a fan for a long time and that you love this program. That's why I don't understand your defense of the indefensible. If you love this program, you have to see that a change MUST be made and the sooner the better.

It is quite a stretch to call this backing the coach. Nothing he wrote is untrue, and nothing he wrote indicates he is satisfied with the results on the court.

Not a stretch at all. He's been Ehsan's main defender on BT for some time. I don't get it.

Yep he has definitely been ehsans biggest cheerleader on the board. He also says that no one could succeed here bc of our conference, which is absolutely untrue.

Great job coach! Everything would just be fine if everyone was a real fan and showed up to watch a crap product.

The Blazer basketball fans have proven their self, First off you can sit at home and watch or listen to game. Put a product on the Floor and the fans will come, This is knot Duke, were Fans don't care who they are playing they show up for the Game, The Blazers have to have that hot Coach, You, will knot like this, but Chuck Person would of filled the seats, but yes, they say he is a Criminal. So, you must find the honest winner such as ( you fill the GaPs ). As much as I like Coach, He is trying but he is knot filling the seats you should release him back to Maryland where he came from he tried and tries hard, It will knot work. He has done Medocere with less, its knot fair to him. Let him Go and Start Again.

I emailed Ingram, and I'm trying to encourage others to do the same. Don't yell at the guy, but he's available for a reason...make your voice heard.

My main point was that UAB isn't Middle Tennessee or Wofford. We shouldn't be mired in mediocrity for 10 years while a guy like Kermit or Mike Young figures out how to run a program.

It's definitely not just BlazerTalk. Vast majority of fans on Facebook and Twitter are also calling for a change. Fans have voted with their feet. If last night didn't make it obvious, I'm not sure what will.

Should we wait until attendance is measured in the hundreds?

Why is Rob Ehsan the hill you want to die on (metaphorically of course)?

The fans have been voting with their feet since the Davis days. Nothing new there.

Most of those posting negatively on twitter and facebook and Blazertalk wouldn't account for 10% of the boosters.

I'm sure you can throw together a poll on twitter and have it come out to your liking.

Wouldn't make a hill of beans of a difference in what actually happens.

I suspect that Ehsan will be given 2 more seasons at most to show improvement.

"Fans" yelling and whining and kicking their feet when they don't get their way isn't helpful to the program.

No one should threaten harm because someone else states an opinion. The ONLY collegiate sport relevant to state lottery funding is baseball where the NCAA allows "Hope scholarships" to be given to instate players and are NOT counted toward that school's total baseball scholarship numbers. If these breaks are ever allowed in MBB, WBB and/or FB, you would hear a sharp howl of protest from both Alabama P5 schools. Imagine if UGA could add a dozen or more of "Hope scholarships" to their regular 85 in FB every year. That is the competitive situation Alabama collegiate programs face in baseball.

Regarding firing a coach in midseason, a coach can be fired at any time, but a replacement hire has to wait until the season ends. A present staff member can be named "interim" HC but that is all that can be done. If UAB AD Ingram has a line on a great replacement choice, he has kept it under wraps so far. Just keep in mind that the present LSU FBHC who just received a 6 year $42 million extension contract had been fired by at least two P5 programs before getting the LSU job. It is not as easy a job as it may appear from the outside.

Certainly not a level playing field for any of our sports.

Football has been able to break the system somewhat.

Basketball for men and women have been stuck in a 1 bid league since prior to Memphis leaving the conference.

Add in the non-support of the program and it leads to a very tough situation for any coach.

Since the Haase era, Davis actually played tough schedules. Fans showed up and we got a bubble bid out of Davis. How about that special 2014-15 season? And the best team in the history of uab basketball that 2015-2016 team.

What exactly has football done to break said system?

Funny how people put words in others mouths.

I think it’s about time for a major cleanup on this site and it has nothing to do with if you want the coach gone or not.
