UAB has issued the following memo to its fans during the last two seasons: don't plan on leaving games early.

But so far there's an addendum to this year's message: trust us, you'll have much more to cheer about.

Last season the Blazers lost four games by 11 points or fewer. Only a field goal separated UAB from matching TCU and Georgia, teams ranked 13th and fourth at the time.
