I know so little about uab that it makes me nervous.  I'm hoping Shane does some leg work and shares his opinion.  Vegas is a good gauge.  But I'm ignorant .

Once you research them you wonít be very nervous anymore but I do believe they will have a new podcast this week to review the upcoming game.  In a nutshell, good D horrible O.  They scored 2 points against Southern Miss. QB has thrown almost as many ints as tds. I believe they have only beaten one team with a winning record.  Not trying to bash UAB, much better year than expected but just facts.

GO OWLS!

All conference preseason running back Spencer Brown is banged up.
Their best win outside of beating La Tech with suspended players is 4 win UTSA.†

My only worry is if the offense struggles a bit like it did against USM and it falls on a game we donít force turnovers.

We will have more on the preview pod later this week.

Call the ticket office. There are plenty available. Alvin took care of mine in my same seats as my season tickets and got my parking pass handled.

My main worry is we draw a bowl game with a strong opponent and Kiffin leaves right after cusa championship and were playing appalachian state or navy with an acting coach.

What if Lane Kiffin staying at FAU came down to us bringing 20k fans to this game this weekend?

Any predictions on the crowd size? †I had already purchased 2 tickets for my daughter and myself, and the same day she sent me a text where as a student she could have gotten a couple of tickets for $5 each!!! †I hope with it being before finals and after Thanksgiving break LOTS of students take advantage of that price and show up.†

And will the student section stay behind the UAB bench, or will the conference have a say and possibly move them?

The Bowl game is the least of the concerns.
The weekend of the 13-15th is one of the most important recruiting weekends of the year.

Early Signing period starts the 19th.†

More and more kids are signing wale each year.

Lane leaving and a few de-commits could have us in a tough position trying to fill spots with quality players in February.

This is my only concern about this whole coaching thing.
