Plans by the University of Alabama at Birmingham to build an on-campus stadium hasten the need to either rebrand and market Legion Field for other uses or finally move to abandon the landmark, Birmingham  and sports officials say. 
   
UAB officials last week unveiled as part of their revised master plan the concept of a 25,000- to 30,000-seat stadium. That plan could receive the University of Alabama System board of trustees' approval as early as April. UAB's downtown stadium would take away Legion Field's major tenant, the Blazers.
