Conference USA has communicated to UAB that the league won't amend its bylaws to keep the Blazers without football, according to sources familiar with the discussions.

UAB dropped football in December and has a study from a consultant expected to be released by May 15. Conference USA's executive committee meets in June and will formally vote on UAB's future. But there is not interest from two-thirds of C-USA's presidents to change the league's bylaws requiring football as a condition of membership.

Assuming UAB doesn't reinstate football for 2016, the school will most likely be a C-USA member for one more academic year in 2015-16, given the short timeframe for the Blazers to find a new home. C-USA is reluctant to kick out UAB and leave its sports without playing schedules.

We'll see what happens...
One of the key items that the initial report didn't include was the 2.4 million loss from CUSA payout.

CUSA is essentially forcing UAB to bring back football or leave. One report has already come out proving the first was wrong. The Official is expected to come out in 14-17 days... We will know by mid May. I expect UAB to formally announce they will reinstate the team by 2017. And I expect Cusa to accept it...

BTW many years ago UB (buffalo) was thinking about budgets and football and they did a pretty easy thing .... They allowed the deans of the Their Finance/Business school to review the unaltered books....

It's pretty simple!
