As expected there are many mixed feelings about UAB’s bowl destination and let me be the first to tell you you’re not wrong. It’s OK to be upset, disappointed, or even angry that our team is going to be playing in the Bahamas where most fans can’t afford to attend. Even the folks on the other side who feel the staff and players deserve this game, don’t feel bad if a part of you is bummed out that you won’t be able to attend. If you weren’t, I’m not sure you have a pulse.
At the end of the day we are thankful to even be in a position where we could be disappointed in a bowl location. Our program is in the best shape it’s ever been in and it will only continue to get better. The only way to get in to a bowl that’s a more desirable location for the fans is do it all again next year and the next year and the next year.
If there is one thing being a UAB fan has taught is to be patient.
