Why if we win (really win) it will move the needle nationally

Recommended Posts

Just saw a glaring example of it on GameDay. Winning when we were in the sunbelt, no. Winning 9 games no. Starting undefeated (like we did in 2018) yes...that moves the needle. And UNT starting that way is better than UTSA starting that way. It's about perception. And you may say "who cares what ESPN thinks" that is very naïve. Perception is everything.

Case in point:

Bear (the resident gambling/analytics guy) has the UTSA/Memphis game on his board as one to pay attention to. As they were talking about how the MWC is actually better than the AAC right now and asking if Fresno St is actually better than Cincy, they talked G5. Then Bear said "one of the best teams in G5 right now is UTSA" and he's taking them over Memphis who is favored by 3. He talked about their win at Illinois (that they never trailed in). So right there.....UTSA is getting national attention for their on field product. Their challenge though is exactly what we talk about when questioning why they're getting mentioned for conference realignment so much.

The hosts then joked: "can anyone name their mascot without looking"

Horribly embarrassing if you're a UTSA fan. They were joking about no one knowing who they are. That wouldn't happen with us if we would just win.
