    After the layoff..public opinion will be low like who in the hell is UAB?

    Wrong, this is a team to circle each week.

    Going to surprise!!!!

    CL, I think they get rolled this year. I love the coach, but he just doesn't have the talent. They're playing at UF this season. Florida will probably struggle to get into the high 30's!! :D

    Coach, they will get rolled at Florida but better watch out for many lines against the public.

    Hell, my friend, don't be surprised if Florida is not back in the SEC championship game again.

    Wouldn't surprise me one bit!

    I want UF to find a QB and a consistent offense before they get back to Atlanta. It's no fun to watch blowouts. But I wouldn't be surprised if they make it either. I'm not sold on UGA. On the other hand, it wouldn't surprise me if UF lost 6 games this year also. McElwain hasn't given this team an identity. They've gotten blown out 8 times in 2 years....yet they've won the East both times. WTF?!?!

    I'm optimistic UAB can go 3-9 but expecting a team with 39 freshman to sniff .500 is not realistic. Could have the best coaching staff in the conference, which will help, but we have nothing at RB and WR. with only 16 seniors i think we have a really good shot at a bowl game in 2018 but this year will be taking some serious lumps. 3 wins probably the ceiling

    Not expecting anything but some covers.

    You make my point RT with the public....

    ...and I believe you have some hands on ties with the school.

    Thinking UAB will be some serious DOGS worth studying.

    The facilities they built at UAB - since the program was shut down and then restarted - are outstanding for a lower level P5 school.

    but saturday is still spent in a decrepit shithole ....

    i do love all the new facilities and the plan in place for on-campus (sort of) stadium is really impressive. the new Football Operations building should be completed in next 30 days http://www.uab.edu/footballfacility/


    the proposed stadium shown below ...

    -13.5 vs a VERY WEAK sWAC Alabama a&m.
    May want to flex their muscle vs this crap team. This game will be telling. If they struggle vs AAMU, watch out. If they put up 55+ and shut AAMU out, they may be quasi-competitive in conference USA

    where's that line? saw -15 at 5dimes with goofy $100 max bet

    A&M shouldn't be competitive. in L8 games vs D1 teams never came within 27 and lost by a combined 375-38. I know A&M got a really good RB (swac frosh of year) but that's about it. Should be 3 TD minimum win even with the 5 turnovers I expect from UAB

    well we didn't play football for the past 2 years because the program was disbanded. but, bill clark was turning everything around before the decision to disband and he's back to start from scratch. we won't be good this year but will outcoach and outrecruit every program in this conference as long as clark is running the show

    UAB was on their way to being a solid G5 team, being an 8-4 type team on the reg (w/ losses mostly to P5 payday schools) and a conference championship here and there...until it got shutdown over a pissing contest. Shameful.

    Men, we are talking against the SPREAD. Granted, this team will struggle to win games. LV has them winning 2.5 games. Personally, I think they win FOUR. I DON'T give a rats ass how many they win.....but how many they COVER.

    Alabama AM, @Ball State, Coastal Carolina, @ North Texas, LA Tech, MTSU, @Charlotte, @So Miss, Rice, @UTSA, @ Florida, UTEP

    Other than the first game. UAB should have a line on the rest of the schedule. They will be Dogs in every game this season friends.

    Dogs are GOOD!
