    Default Somebody got their feelings hurt on signing day.

    BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - In Year 2, UAB head coach Garrick McGee understands the rivalry with Troy a lot better.

    Unprompted, he alluded to negative recruiting from Troy during this past recruiting process. UAB did lose one recruit - Julius McCall from Chelsea - to Troy after he had been committed to UAB for several months. McCall, an all-state running back at Chelsea, is a cornerback for Troy and is not listed on the 2-deep.

    "Going into our second year, we do understand this is a rivalry game," McGee said. "We know it now because we went through a recruiting season and we heard all this stuff that was said about our program from Troy so I know that this is a rivalry game and I'm going to approach it as a rivalry game."

    McGee didn't discuss what was said about Troy.

    All's fair in love and war. What could we say about their program? The dump of a stadium? No tradition? Your guess is as good as mine.

    In the article they talk about being close and fighting for recruits and fans.... fighting for fans........they have a tough sell due to just about everything to do with their program....yes Troy is a small town and frankly there is not alot to do except for the school....and it is in the SBC so it does have to fight for recruits with a good many schools including UAB....but fighting for fans its kind of a no brainer to the average unaffliliated football fan.....UAB for the amenities and spirit of game day....or Troy....I think those regards we have them hands down.....so the guy said they fight for fans...well

    Troy's tactics of using an on campus stadium/football facility,true college atmosphere and autonomy of a flagship university was a hit below the belt.....

    Maybe UAB will "white out" their recruits this year with blindfolds.

    If you have a gun, shoot it. I'm not going to not say those things because "its not fair." Use every advantage you have.

    But, they're in coosa...

    “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
