Their IPF got done first too. Well...at least ours will have walls, I think.

I'm sure they had some players but almost anyone good transferred when they heard of the shutdown. I think they had 50+ players transfer when the decision was announced.

There was an article espn posted detailing where every UAB transfer went. A surprisingly high number of them transferred to P5 schools and were starters. Off hand, I recall a LB that went to Georgia and a RB that went to INdiana

UAB was able to take prop kids no other school could take and then use their off two years to get them qualified.

[quote="redpony"]unfortunately that pye ended up being half-baked.[/quote but we continued to fail after it was "turnered" on the grill for another 30 years.
Our Adminstrator had 30 years to reverse Pye's start, but he kept it on track and no one objected. At least at Ole Miss they booed him off the field during homecoming. We just let him renew his own contract six times.
