UAB Football picked 4th in C-USA East Division

Posted: Updated:

At C-USA Media Day took place today. UAB was projected to finish in the middle of the pack in year two of the Garrick McGee era. This would be an improvement for the 2nd year coach who talked about the lessons he learned in his first year with the Blazers. "It starts with me," McGee said. "In our first game last year against Troy there were two running backs that touched the ball before Darrin Reaves touched the ball."

Reaves would go on to rush for over a thousand yards, and become a preseason 1st team C-USA running back. The lesson learned for McGee, feed Reaves the ball. "I'm going to coach a lot better football this year and he's going to get the ball a lot earlier in the game."     

With a 2-6 record in conference play last season, the Blazers finished 5th in the East Division. The Blazers are projected to improve slightly, projected to finish 4th in their division.
