  In reply to: Football at Univ. of Alabama-Birmingham might shut down...  posted by thethinman

I understand the football program has struggled and hasn't exactly been financial dynamite, but the team is bowl eligible under a first-year coach, has the expressed financial support of its booster association, and has the outspoken support of the city council. Is this just an instance of institutional inertia making this decision inevitable when contracts weren't previously renewed?
