  1. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    Look how many schools have a section about their NCAA athletics on their admission marketing pages


    The zeitgeist in the undergraduate recruitment/admissions community believes that it is...
  2. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    I think B-ham politics does have a problem of pie-in-the-sky ideas, but I don't think UAB football is a symptom of that tendency. There was a logic to fast-tracking them to D-1A/FBS but there was no...
  3. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    This is why I say it is partly about undergraduate admissions. Yeah sure, nobody goes to UAB because of a football tradition but it does sell well on the pamphlet that the school participates at the...

    Re: Sweet Home... Tennessee?

    He's a huge improvement over Dooley but I don't know if they're ever even going to win the East under him.

    Re: Sweet Home... Tennessee?

    Like Butch, he has a good sense of humor obviously (this was staged...clearly).


    But with all that said...noted, he is gunning for us. I hope he misses the mark!
  6. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    Yeah, UNA has been in DII for a LONG time. Successful there too.
  7. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    It was a much smaller campus than when I started there in 2004. I would assume it had to be 2/3 in-state or more.
  8. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    I think it is more emotional/symbolic than entirely direct. The football program was always about UAB becoming more of a factor in-state. It doesn't matter that the product would hardly attract those...
  9. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    It is happening/already happened in Tuscaloosa. It is probably 50/50 split right now. Considering the growth plan, the lack of growth in quality students out of high school (and population growth in...
  10. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    This battle really isn't about football though. It is about undergraduate admissions. If the BOT is being nefarious in any way, it might be the desire to deemphasize UAB undergraduate programs since...
  11. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    Whenever UAB comes up on Jay Barker's morning show while driving to work, I have to turn it off. The host guy (Tony) is one of those guys who says all the dumb arguments for UAB football.
  12. Link: Re: Nick Saban Explains Pros, Cons of Cost of Attendance

    Honestly, I'm concerned for the University and City of Tuscaloosa. It is pretty clear a lot of money came this way during the recession because the student growth helped shield the area from the...
  13. Link: Re: Nick Saban Explains Pros, Cons of Cost of Attendance

    I'm guessing that Georgia, TAMU, and Alabama are probably waiting for better guidance before determining a metric. There is just no way Auburn and Starkville have a higher cost of living than...
  14. Link: Re: Nick Saban Explains Pros, Cons of Cost of Attendance

    Starkville with a higher cost of living than Tuscaloosa. lmao.

    Re: Jalston Fowler to the Titans

    Haha. When you're 2-14 in the NFL, everywhere is a need.
