Today UAB supporters dressed in green and gold school colors chanted in the sun for their football team while members of the marching band played. But it wasn’t a football game. It was on Birmingham’s 20th Street South, in front of the university’s administration building. They were responding to reports that the football program may be discontinued, and they’re angry about that possibility. Students, alumni, football players and other community members marched from the campus recreation center to the administration building around 8:30 this morning. The rally was mainly organized through social media with the hashtag #FreeUAB. Below are more photos by our education reporter Dan Carsen and an interview with Carsen and WBHM News Director Rachel Lindley. This post will be updated as the situation changes.
