WED DECEMBER 11TH 2013
BLAZER WEEKLY

BLAZERS HEADING BACK
TO THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

(#29 CARL HOLYCROSS, #22 DOMINIQUE RHODES AND #6 HARVEY NELSON CELEBRATE A SEC CHAMPIONSHIP WIN SATURDAY)

BIRMINGHAM, AL - As they waited in a narrow hallway to address the media following their team's victory over Alabama, Dominique Rhodes sought out middle linebacker Timi McCollum "Did you hear? Iowa's up 28-16," the freshmen strong safety said excitedly.
McCollum barely reacted.
"C'mon," said the Blazers' star linebacker. "I'm not going to think about that right now."
UAB players weren't entirely sure how to react after completing a 13-0 regular season and earning their school's second straight BCS National Championship Game berth with a 24-21 victory over their in-state rivals. After 15 weeks of rigid adherence to coach Travis Rhatigan's "Win the Down" motto, should they celebrate the culmination of their historic victory or begin looking ahead to the Big Game on Jan. 9?
"It's a big deal that we get to play in the national championship," said receiver Ian Wilson, "but we got to the ship last year and we didn't finish it. It's important to finish."
McCollum wasn't finished enjoying Saturday's win.
"I'm celebrating this one -- I don't know about him," said McCollum. "I'm going to milk this one for a few days. We don't play again for I don't know how long."
For 33 days, to be exact -- which should be plenty of time for the Blazers to reflect on their accomplishment. But since the business-minded Rhatigan won't likely allow it ("We've got work to do," he said Saturday), we'll just have to do it instead.
A program that once was the laughing stalk as a new program in a state with powers such as Alabama and Auburn is heading to Pasadena, Cali., to play for the biggest prize of all. It will mark the crescendo of a 3-year rise from college football afterthought to nationally recognized power, complete with hard nose defense grind it out offense and a no non-sense head coach.
As the clock wound down Saturday with UAB's victory in hand, players were seen biting roses and corner Adam Love even knelt down and handed a spirit squad member a Rose. Head coach Travis Rhatigan was asked if he's plan that.
"Exactly on plan," Rhatigan said. "I'm tough on these kids, im glad they could go have some fun."

Saturday's game went according to Rhatigan's plan as well, even if felt more workmanlike and less explosive than most of the Blazers' other victories this season. The Blazers decided they were going to run the ball, then run it some more against the tough Alabama front, and thus the powerful Rutledge found himself hammering the load. The result: Rutledge rushed 27 times for 184 yards.
The Blazers ran in three rushing touchdowns. " We tried to establish a attitude, with Dyks struggling we had no choice." said Rhatigan.
Again, it was just part of the plan.
"We planned to give them a heavy dose as the game went on but dyks struggles had us go to that plan earlier than expected, Mississippi State did that in their win over bama so we owe that staff a lot of credit for providing the blueprint."
The Blazers will now take a few days off before beginning practice next week in preparation of Iowa.

BLAZERS GET 7 ON ALL AMERICA TEAMS
LED BY MIDDLE LINEBACKER TIMI MCCOLLUM'S UNANIMOUS SELECTION, UAB PLACED 5 ON THE FIRST TEAM SQUAD



(FROM TOP TO BOTTOM LEFT TO RIGHT)
(#52 TIMI MCCOLLUM, #55 TOM COX, #15 IAN WILSON, #24 RODERICK BROOKS, #91 MARCUS LEAK, ALL FIRST TEAM SELECTIONS)

BIRMINGHAM, AL - Seven University of Alabama at Birmingham football players were named to the Associated Press All-American teams on Monday, with Sophomore's Timi McCollum and and Marcus Leak along with junior Tom Cox and Seniors Ian Wilson and Roderick Brooks earning first-team honors. Senior defensive tackle Brandon Richardson and True freshmen Dominique Rhodes were second team selections.
"These guys deserved it, they had a great year and to be recognized as one of the players in the country is a great feat." Said Head Coach Travis Rhatigan.
Last year, UAB placed eight players on the respected teams and ten overall including the freshmen All America team. Overall, the Blazers have had 15 players honored by the AP first and second teams over the past two seasons.
Co-team captain and defensive player of the year for the Blazers, Timi McCollum has made 75 tackles this season to go with four interceptions, 13.5 sacks, and 36 tackles for a loss.
Ian Wilson, the team MVP, set UAB career marks for touchdowns (45) and career yards (3,775). He already has the single season touchdown record as well. He needs just 90 more receiving yards to set the single season yards mark. For the year he has 48 receptions, 1,368 yards and 17 receiving touchdowns.
Junior College Transfer Tom Cox accumulated 41 tackles (23 solo), 14 tackles for loss, and 8.5 sacks
Sophomore Marcus Leak anchored the defensive line with 9.5 sacks, he recorded 18 solo tackles which 12 were for a loss.
Roderick Brooks, the return specialist made the list for the third straight season but this was by far his best season, he led the NCAA in return yards with over 1400, average per return with 29.5 and set a school record with kickoff returns in a season.

FANTASTIC FOUR
BLAZERS GET FIVE NAMED TO ALL FRESHMEN INCLUDING ALL FOUR DEFENSIVE BACK SPOTS


(FROM TOP TO BOTTOM LEFT TO RIGHT)
(#19 ADAM DYKS, #26 ANTHONY MCFARLAND, #22 DOMINIQUE RHODES, #29 CARL HOLYCROSS, #6 HARVEY NELSON)

BIRMINGHAM, AL - The honors just keep coming in for the 13-0 Blazers who are headed to the BCS National Championship against No. 1 Iowa on January 9th at the Rose Bowl presented by Citi. Five Blazers were named to the Associated Press All Freshmen team. Blazers look to have a bright future in the defensive second grabbing all four spots led by AP Second Team All American Dominique Rhodes.
"Just a blessing." Said Rhodes of his accolades. "I was told I would have a chance to play when I committed and all I did as take advantage of an opportunity." Rhodes was accompanied by Free Safety Carl Holycross and corners Harvey Nelson and Anthony McFarland.
Holycorss stated: "To get this honor with guys I came in with is amazing. Seems like yesterday we were checking into the dorms and asking questions about the playbook."
Freshmen quarterback Adam Dyks, who struggle a bit this year still put up great numbers surpassing freshmen marks at UAB throwing for over 3,000 yards and 35 touchdowns.

17 GET THE NOD:
UAB LANDS 17 ON ALL SEC TEAMS
INCLUDING 11 ON FIRST TEAM


BIRMINGHAM, AL - The SEC named their all conference teams and the UAB Blazers dominated the list getting 17 selections to the first and second teams. Georgia quarterback Lionel Hood edge out Bama's Brad Newton for offensive player of the year while UAB's Timi McCollum was named Defensive Player of the year for the conference. The Blazers grabbed 11 first team selections and six were named to the second team.
"In our last year in the conference usa we had 18 named to all conference, but to have 17 named along with 11 on the first team in the SEC is such a honor and tells you something about the hard work our guys put in to get these opportunities." said an excited Travis Rhatigan at his weekly presser.

IOWA'S SENIOR RUNS AWAY WITH HEISMAN
Photobucket
(JOSE ASHLEY RETURNS A 97 YARDS KO IN THE BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIP GAME)

___________________
ASSOCIATED PRESS__

NEW YORK, NY - On November 9th, when he had just committed a costly fumble and got benched against Illinois who they'd squeak out a victory over, Jose Ashley was on hardly anyone's Heisman ballot. When the award was handed out 5 weeks later, there was hardly a one he wasn't on.
Ashley, who averaged 250.5 all purpose yards over the final four games of 2013 and finished with 1,206 yards and 16 TDs along with 608 yards and two kickoff returns, was awarded the 79th Heisman Trophy as college football's most outstanding player in Saturday's ceremony at New York's Downtown Athletic Club.
Ashley garnered 2,042 points and 586 first-place votes among 922 Heisman ballots.
Wearing a blue pinstriped suit, Ashley was styling at the Downtown Athletic Club, home of the Heisman. When his name was called, he broke into a smile, hugged his coach, Kurt Ferentz, and shook hands with the other finalists.
"I didn't know what to do, shake the finalists' hands, hug my coach, carry him around, or carry my uncle around and put him on my shoulders," Iowa's workhorse tailback said.
"It's really hard for me to cry. I cried once this year -- when I got benched in the Illinois game"
The runaway voting result was hardly a surprise, unless you consider how surprisingly quick Ashley took his candidacy from finished to complete. The schools career touchdown leader led Iowa to a 13-0 record, including their first ever Big Ten Championship in the newly built conference. He and the Hawkeye's will have a chance to win the National Championship when they face No. 2 UAB next month.

Jose Ashley poses with the latest addition to his trophy collection, the 2013 Heisman Trophy. AP
His 1,206 yards rank him second in the Big Ten and 15th overall in the NCAA. But it was his all purpose ability that got him the nod. He scored 21 total touchdowns this season including three in the receiving department but his return ability put him over the top.

Standing at 6' foot 234 pounds he seems more like a fullback but his deceptive speed has made opposing kickoff units weary of kicking it to him. In the Big Ten Championship game most sports writer feel he solidified his place for the trophy when he return a kickoff 97 yards to help his team open up a 21-16 lead in the fourth quarter. A momentous play that took the breath out of a Illinois team who looked to steal the momentum.
" He's a great kid and a helluva athlete." said Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz. " He does it all for us and as a program, a coach, and a father, Im proud of this kid."
Jose Ashley will step on the field next month against the nations top rush defense in the UAB Blazers. With the tough task ahead for Ashley we're sure he's gonna sit back and enjoy this one.

BLAZER WEEKLY

CAN THEY WIN?

HEAD COACH TRAVIS RHATIGAN AN THE BLAZERS FIND THEMSELVES ON FAMILIAR GROUND

BIRMINGHAM, AL - As the Blazers wrap up their final week of practice in Birmingham before heading to Pasadena, they find themselves on the same set of circumstances as last years chance at a BCS title. Just like TCU the No. 1 Iowa Hawkeye's have a Heisman trophy winning running back on their side.
"That is something we are aware of." said head coach Travis Rhatigan after the teams Tuesday Practice.
"We will be ready this time around, we have a great bunch of kids that understand whats at stake this year and they're working harder than ever for this championship."
Since winning the SEC championship this year, the Blazer have been awarded with All American and All conference selections as well as a few players bringing home some hardware from Orlando earlier this year at the awards banquet. But the only piece of hardware on the players minds are that of the Sears Trophy and the crystal ball.
" The younger guys have to understand this isn't just another game, It's the only game and last game of the season." Senior receiver Ian Wilson said, Wilson had seven receptions for 193 yards and two touchdowns in the championship game last year. " We have to make sure we bypass all the distractions and worry about the task at hand and thats to hoist the crystal ball."
UAB will practice Thursday, Friday and Saturday before taking new years eve and new years off before flying to California on Tuesday.
