Bill Clark has released a statement full of class on UAB's decision to drop football


At this point, we've extensively profiled UAB's fight to keep the football program up and running at this point and our call to the administration to do the right thing, as well as pointed out the outstanding job that Bill Clark and his entire staff have done in their one season there under some very adverse conditions.

Sadly, earlier today, UAB officially announced that they will be dropping the football program. Bill Clark released a statement exuding handling the unfortunate situation with the utmost class.

Tip of the old cap to Clark and his staff. They've handled a nightmare of a situation with more integrity and class than more people could dream of mustering.

Read his full statement on the situation below.

Also worth noting are these videos of the emotionally charged scene at UAB inside the meeting room where players addressed the president, and then directly outside of the football facility.
