I remember folks saying that before the Rice game...I'm glad they didn't (but I do believe that is what will happen this time)

The Rice game wasn't the day after Christmas, and there was something on the line. It is currently December 22nd, and the meaningless bowl game is in 4 days. We won the championship, that's enough in this f8cked up year.

Wont be broken hearted if we dont play but if the team wants to play, who is even available at this point? It seems every team has either opted out, has virus issues, or is already playing.

Army is booked. Tennessee pulled out of Liberty Bowl yesterday and Army has been plugged in.

I'm watching Tulane play Nevada in the Great Potato Bowl on the "smurf turf" in Boise ID. The Tampa Bay Area in December does not sound so bad in comparison.

Iowa has had six coaches and “several” players test positive for the coronavirus. Iowa HC has said it’s still confident it can participate in the Music City Bowl on Dec. 30th. If they can’t I wouldn’t be surprised to see UAB jump on the opportunity.

We’ve heard for weeks that UAB was pushing hard for a spot in the Bham Bowl (a bowl with no CUSA guarantee). To assume that we had no role in this fiasco is just looking through blinders

Yup. Somebody(s) ****** up. I would guess our AD.

I’m fine with this. If one of the playoff games comes open. They better take us since 5 and 6 seeds still have a game.

We could move to any other FBS conference and be better off. This one is the bottom of the barrel.

Missing this bowl is more than missing a football game. It means missing out on over $1 million ($1.125 million in 2019 [per Wikipedia]) that I'm sure the UAB Athletic program could use.
