You are more than welcome to come hang out with us during a cook Cory. We are cooking Pensacola on the weekend of the 2nd, Mobile on the 9th, and Tupelo on the 16th. Tupelo may be the best one for you to come hang out at because there will be close to 100 teams from all over the country. It will give you a chance to see what a lot of teams are doing. Our team (Smoke Me Silly) is fairly new (starting our second year), but we would be more than happy to show you some things. Send me a PM if you are interested.

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.

Yeah tailgating with UAB can be fun if you have a bunch of people there. Homecoming is good fun and Memphis is definitely the most hyped game of the year. I can only imagine how much fun it would be if we had a really good facility.

$1000 prize money for it sounds pretty good too. How many teams were there if you can remember?

I didn't know Legion Field still existed. I remember when one side was falling in.

Do the neighbors still charge $10 to park the yard, $20 for security?

It is so deserted now when a game is going on that every single car can fit in the lots around the stadium with room for about 10,000 more cars I bet. And it's UAB themselves charging for parking around the stadium too. I think it's like $7 a car or something inconvenient like that and you have to have correct change and they don't take checks.

And they just decided to tear down the upper deck instead of fixing it years ago. The ole girl isn't going to be in useable shape for very long if they don't start some serious upkeep on it. Maybe they won't though and it'll fall in and we'll get our stadium on campus.

I remember going to an Alabama game (before they stopped using Legion Field) when I was little with my best friend and his grandpa and we stayed in a motorhome, but I'll never forget driving down there after school with them and seeing a ton of people hocking their yards for parking. I had never seen anything like that before at that age. Never forget it. So many people selling barbecue right out of their yards too, smelled so good. Every cooker was an old drum grill or smoker that I remember, even being that young. LOL.

Remember at LF we (UAB) get no money from parking nor concessions that is the B'ham Parks & Rec that gets that as well as said people giving visitors a bad experiences when they come, again BP&R employees as well as fans of that other program down the road so no vested interest in giving people a good experience. As to parking no it's not a problem of space, it's a problem of the people you have to deal with (parking nazis) The only time you might have to park off LF would be something like a SoMiss game or the rare $EC opponent coming there but the price is the same as LF in most cases $8 but at LF you might have to buy an extra spot if you have something as large as a 10x10 canopy to set up. If UAT was still playing games there, you wouldn't see no problems that we have happen to them. We play our home games there but it's not a home field for us either.
As to BOB contest, there were about a dozen teams & I was surprised that they had that many considering they staqrted about 2 wks before the contest whereas I was telling them in the UAB Mkting dept to get off their butts back in Aug to get stuff done. The contest left me a sour taste in my mouth as a BBQer as well as a fan/employee of UAB. I'll get off my soapbox before I get on it about that.

I tailgate in the paid spots on the north side of the stadium, look for the white canopy near the Gang Green, Dragons Lair tailgate spots (easiest tailgate setup landmarks). We've normally 20-40 people & I'm the grill master of course. We try to theme it to an opponent. Stop by if you come we have adult beverages as well as those for the tea totalers.
