    Default From ua's b game notes

    http://www.troytrojans.com/documents...oy.pdf?id=1184

    Call Us UAB! (pronounced: you-AB...a la John Longshore)

    Please note that there are only two correct
    versions of our name, the acronym “UAB,”
    or the full “University of Alabama at Birmingham.”
    In addition, the Associated Press
    sports stylebook now uses UAB on first reference,
    not Alabama-Birmingham.
    We are not:
    Alabama-Birmingham,
    Ala.-Birmingham, or U.A.B.
    The University of Alabama at Birmingham
    (UAB) has been an autonomous member
    of the University of Alabama system since
    1969, and has had an intercollegiate athletic
    program since 1977. UAB is sometimes confused
    with the University of Alabama (Crimson
    Tide), which is located in Tuscaloosa;
    while this is inevitable, it is important to
    note that the two are indeed separate institutions.
    In addition, the UAB name is often
    altered by various media, opponents, merchandisers,
    etc.

    “I quit worrying about Auburn and Alabama. They’re cowards and you can print that,” he said. “Troy people would love to play them, but they’re chicken. I’m not talking about the (Alabama or Auburn) coaches and the players. I’m talking about the ones who wear the panties who make decisions.” --LB by way of the SavannahNow.com

    Ohhhh that hurt....not. I guess you forgot we just changed our name to Troy University a few years back and its not the only one we have had. We can understand if people haven't caught on yet, since we haven't had the same name since the 1960s. So if that was insult it was pretty pathetic, back the drawing board buddy. I expected much more from the highly educated DFARR, so maybe the next insult will be a little more effective. ;)

    Why does UAB even have a football team? Seriously, they can root for the main campus. To me it's like Troy-Montgomery wanting to have football

    Troy-Montgomery could have the nickname "Senators" since AUM changed over to "Warhawks" Huntingdon is pretty good though, might want to find a few cream puffs to play starting up the program before they bite off more than they can chew.

    I'm trying to get past the part where is says, "UAB is sometimes confused with The University of Alabama".

    That's not even remotely possible.
