What We Learned In Week Seven of the Group of Five

That's right people, I've had enough of parsing out six different articles each week going one conference at a time. Ain't nobody got time for that. Instead, we'll just roll with one nice long article that hits all the high points. Ready set go! American Athletic Conference USF is probably more lucky than good. They … Continue reading What We Learned In Week Seven of the Group of Five

Group of Five Top 10 Poll, Week Eight

Another week, another poll. So, while I agree on two-loss Boise and Hawai'i teams being lower, we definitely have a bias against West Coast teams in our voters. Also, while I am willing to make tweaks in the voting as compensation, I can't justify moving a team more than a few spots. That said, what … Continue reading Group of Five Top 10 Poll, Week Eight

Group of Five Top 10 Poll, Week… What Is This, Week Seven I Guess?

Halfway point it is then. Have you sobered up from another weird Saturday yet? I tweaked the options again, making it necessary that a team has to be two games above .500 in order to get themselves into the rankings. Sorry MTSU, FIU and I guess Boise. So where does our opinion of the Group … Continue reading Group of Five Top 10 Poll, Week… What Is This, Week Seven I Guess?

Forgotten 5’s Group of Five Top 10 Poll

Well now, there were some disagreements in this weeks voting. We talked for a solid, like, 10 minutes about these (that's a new record, don't scoff)! UCF - Honestly, the Knights played an imperfect game, and they still mopped the floor with Pitt. Granted this is a down time for Pitt football, but they're also … Continue reading Forgotten 5’s Group of Five Top 10 Poll

What Did We Learn From Our First Week of Conference USA Football?

I might argue that Conference USA was the conference that we learned the least about in the opening week of action. It's hard to have a lot of takeaways when you go into a game knowing that it's a lopsided matchup and then it plays out exactly as such. But let's poke around anyways. A … Continue reading What Did We Learn From Our First Week of Conference USA Football?

It’s Been Five Years Since the Beginning of the End for UAB Football

EDITORS NOTE: Let me start by saying that I am fully aware that the true story is more complex and far-reaching than what I'm writing here, that's the whole reason behind the book I'm working on. But this is just a window into that larger story via the 2013 season, which wound up being the … Continue reading It’s Been Five Years Since the Beginning of the End for UAB Football

Let’s Talk About the Literal Elephant in the City, Legion Field

So yes, all of the funding appears to be in place for the long-held dream of a brand new, open-air stadium as a new home for UAB football when the project is completed in (boy lets hope) the summer of 2021. But that leaves the other half of the equation; what to make of Legion … Continue reading Let’s Talk About the Literal Elephant in the City, Legion Field

Birmingham Has Plenty of Financial Ducks Lined Up for the BJCC Renovation, and UAB Will Benefit

After the recent vote by the Birmingham City Council to contribute $3 million per year over the course of the 30-year debt service for the BJCC expansion/renovation project, it looks like all of the financial ducks are lined up in terms of covering the cost of this project, which includes a heavy renovation of Legacy … Continue reading Birmingham Has Plenty of Financial Ducks Lined Up for the BJCC Renovation, and UAB Will Benefit

How Should New Mexico State Finish Out Their Upcoming Independent Football Schedules? How Will They?

As Omar covered this morning, the Aggies have done a solid job with their upcoming schedules, creating a nice mix of retaining a few Sun Belt connections, re-establishing a handful of WAC/MWC connections, and generally not traveling fifty bajillion miles in the process. The fact remains though, that the Aggies require an additional two games … Continue reading How Should New Mexico State Finish Out Their Upcoming Independent Football Schedules? How Will They?
