Now if we could only get our own stadium things would be a different matter . I tailgate at the UAB games & a fan of it as well as employee.
No way Hog! Nice to see another UAB tailgater and also a fellow hater! I always tailgate with the fraternity in the student section (Delta Sigma Phi) when I go. When I was an active brother as an undergraduate I was always over the food and grilling. You mighta saw us once with a big trailer grille with fryer and all, but I doubt you'd remember seeing it since we only did that twice and it was a few years ago. One of our guys dad's loaned it to us.
Tailgating at UAB has it's good and bad weekend for sure. Homecoming is always damn fun and it feels like a real football tailgate if the weather is right. I just wish they'd get us that damn stadium build downtown like they've proposed a billion times. If they'd do that and get us a fraternity row close to it we'd have the feeling of a real southern college when you went to hang out at games. Probably never gonna happen though. Ever. The BOT can go to hell, and I'm serious about that. We do all the academic work and get ALL the grant money for research and they ride us while they enjoy the fruits of they're precious football program. I hate it to my core what they do to UAB and UAH.
What do ya do at UAB BTW? I know several people who work for the system. It's a huge thing though for sure, all kinds of jobs out there with UAB. My ex GF's dad was a painter for them.
