After three home games UAB leads the conference with over 32k average attendance and beat one of the favorites in the West in La Tech last week. They have an excellent chance to go bowling this year. It appears Smaug has awoken.

"cusa-talk.com" Sigh.

We can say we had our highest attended home game ever (NC A&T) and our lowest attended home game ever (Marshall) in the span of the same season.

I imagine we will get lower than the 10k threshold for the MTSU & FAU games. Homecoming may see 12-13k.

Truly amazing on all fronts. Look out, Tide! Y'all may have to kill everyone at uab if this keeps up.  :)) :)) :))

There are so many similar historical parallels between UAB and Charlotte. Why did UAB decide to start football in 1991 and Charlotte not until 2013?

uab is in a football-crazy state and we're in, well, NC. Plus our AD had NO interest in starting footbal.

AL.com: Birmingham council supports $90 million for BJCC expansion, downtown stadium

We can't compare UAB to ourselves.  Birmingham is much larger than Chatlotte and everyone knows there are no good football programs in Alabama or even in the surrounding states.

Seriously, I hope our new AD realizes the value of capturing the Charlotte market.  Our outgoing AD seemed to have trouble with that concept.
