    UAB lost its top four receivers, most of its offensive line and numerous top defensive performers from last year and yet here they are again at 9-3, 6-2...

    Last year's other participant is missing. Not only from the CUSA CC game, but from any post season bowl.

    How did UAB do it?

    Bill Clark has been the best coach in this conference by far since UAB returned. He hired his staff based on their accomplishments rather than hiring old friends who need a few years to get their pensions.

    Why on earth did UAB hire a 1-AA head coach??? Don't they know he knows nothing about 1-A football?

    They need to hire a power 5 position coach...

    If the situation wasn’t so dire, these posts are really pretty funny.

    He's gonna get hired away with all of the openings coming available. He's one of the ebst coaches in the game right now.

    Why would he leave UAB and the State of Alabama retirement system? He makes a million a year and is getting a new stadium to boot

    It'll need to be a Power 5 offer with 2-3 mil per year guaranteed, at least. But if that is offered, he is gone.

    Remember, these coaches are very competitive at heart. They want to be in Power 5 conferences and coaching amongst the best in the profession and beating the best in the profession. Bill Clark strikes me as a guy who likes the bright lights and big crowds. He'll be gone at the first P5 offer.

    I have met him, he just doesn't seem polished enough for an SEC job, but who knows.

    Looks like Brent will be getting to wear a CUSA football championship ring. Maybe he can show it to Rick so he knows what one looks like...

    A really embarrassing performance by UAB.

    Reminds me of just about any Middle Tennessee Bowl appearance under Rick Stockstill.

    Certainly wasn't their day. They've had some major clunker games this year against respectable teams where they just didn't show up. (UT-Knoxville, USM)


    They're a feast or famine type of team, which can be somewhat expected considering how young they are. They still finish 9-4 on the year with a chance to have a 10 win season. Pretty sure they are the youngest team in the conference too.....so that's still pretty special in my eyes.
