Wow, a whole webpage devoted to whining about how UAB football is irrelevant?

Everyone knows Bama messes with UAB, but that alone isn't the issue. Could UAB get more done if Bama stopped interfering, yes probably so. But could they still get that done without the U of A system's money? I'm sure UAB fans will say yes, but the I'm sure the real answer is No.

It's a chicken or the egg argument. Bama doesn't want to give them money because the Blazers never put a winning product on the field. UAB fans say the reason their teams suck is Bama hurts them.

I say it's both. UAB sucks at football, so Bama doesn't want to tank too much money in the program. UAB continues to suck because Bama doesn't give them a big enough allowance to really make the program shine.

Stick to basketball UAB, that's what I say.

UAB became an autonomous institution in 1969, which means they procure their own funds for the university and its organizations. Why do they expect another university to fund their program(s)?

I noticed the article had zero comments. Gee, I wonder why?
