UAB Football Is Back, and Twitter Is Rejoicing

If you haven’t already heard, the University of Alabama-Birmingham announced yesterday that it will reinstate its football program starting in 2016 after president Ray Watts decided to shut it down (and fire his athletic director) back in December.

Led by the hashtag #FreeUAB, the entire nation came together in support of the football program, hoping for an eventual gridiron comeback for the Blazers.

Ask and you shall receive. Reactions were priceless.

One has to wonder though: Was this entire thing a ploy to grab some spotlight and the support from donors? Is Ray Watts a financial genius? I mean, c’mon, these t-shirts were ready to go the second he made the announcement…

And then there’s this:

Either way, good for UAB football, and good for the bowling and rifle teams, which were also reinstated.
