Alabama state Rep. Jack Williams, time will tell whether you’re brave or foolish.

It actually may help him politically. You have to remember there is a huge Auburn faction and most of the non-Bama crowd (JAX State, N. Alabama, etc.) resents all the preferential treat ment Bama gets. Not to mention the UAB crowd.
Mayor, in the state legislature, the Bammers outnumber everybody else by a considerable margin, state-wide, there is an Auburn faction although how large it is is debatable…the rest of the schools? Outside the towns where they live, they ain’t much support…watched a Troy game at home lately?
Numbers of supporters for Bama and Auburn out there in general population land is a fungible number, depending on who is winning.
I suspect a straw poll would find Bama fans outnumber everybody else by say…what? two to one?
Thanks for the new word to my vocabulary. This blog is superior in many aspects and bloggers have the temerity to write useful words. And to introduce new ones to the gtp lexicon. When was the last one entered?
Three to one by my calculations. 😉🎈
If the C-USA by-laws require each member to play football, then how can the conference take a “wait and see” attitude on UAB without amending its by-laws to allow a member to not play football while it is waited on and seen?
Obeying the by-laws? Picky picky.
The NCAA doesn’t (see State, Penn) so why should a measly conference?
“as UAB tries to understand what it’s going to do.”
You gotta laugh at the folks who think Georgia’s administration has problems loving them some football.
