You know it must really suck to be UTSA. First, they have a used car salesman as a head coach that is the biggest conman in college football. Secondly, they play in a rented stadium that is 20 miles away from their shitty campus. Their basketball team plays in a high school gym and is an embarrassment to the AAC. Traylor has been so lucky with Frank Harris, a guy he didn't even recruit.
Quite the correct post. As others have said, I do believe it is a bubble that will burst, but we have no place for arrogance right now. They have a lot going for them that we don’t and vice versa. In the long run I think we have all we need to move past all of that, but they’ve done a great job with football. We have the “resources” but also the apathy. They have the inverse. I pay them respects while also believing we can and should be on a different tier if we get serious about doing so.
I think very little of utsa the school. Having said that, and after attending the championship game, as long as they can continue to draw to the Alamodome they will be a problem to deal with. That dome provides them with a great atmosphere. Another thing to consider is that the San Antonio news actually covers them and puts them on TV and in print. We have Brett Vito. That’s it.
The draw for kids to play there will be there as long as they aren’t terrible. Great atmosphere and TV coverage are real advantages.
We literally went from looking down at them to celebrating every recruit we got a commit from that was offered by utsa like they were superstars. That‘s pretty telling and upsetting.
