UNCC Names Field At New On-Campus Stadium After Hugh McColl, Jerry Richardson
Published November 2, 2011
UAB STADIUM IDEA SHOT DOWN: In Birmingham, Steve Irvine reports the Univ. of Alabama System Board of Trustees yesterday indicated that the UAB football program "has not generated enough fan support or money to justify building an on-campus stadium." The statement from the board called a new stadium the "wrong project at the wrong time." The decision "came after UAB officials completed an on-campus stadium feasibility study" by UAB AD Brian Mackin and VP/Financial Affairs Richard Margison. UAB booster Jimmy Filler, who "played a key role in getting purchase commitments for all 27 luxury suites in the proposed stadium," said that he "believes the board's decision is intended to be the 'final nail' for the idea of a new stadium." UAB currently plays at Legion Field (BIRMINGHAM NEWS, 11/2).
