I love to hear all the people talking about football here
and nobody seems to care about the UTSA college football program.

I like the fact that Texas State is joining, too
that should create a great rivalry (football)

Rivals UTSA, Texas State will join Western Athletic Conference in 2012 | kens5.com

The Roadrunners and Texas State, rivals in the Southland Conference, will compete in the WAC in all sports. Denver will play in all WAC sports except football.

UTSA and Texas State will join Hawaii, Louisiana Tech, Idaho, New Mexico State, Utah State and San Jose State as WAC football schools. The conference will have nine men’s and women’s basketball teams. “If it happens, it would be great,” said freshman quarterback John Simmons, who looked impressive in the Roadrunners’ seventh scrimmage. “But we really haven’t been talking about it.”

UTSA will have its final scrimmage at 7 p.m. next Wednesday at the Alamodome, where the Roadrunners will play their home games. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and admission is free. Parking will be available in Lots B and C for $5.

That is good news for the college and the city overall.

Is there anyway we can get a new logo? The current brand is weak.

You mean this?



UTSA just got this brand 3 years ago.

Really? They just got a new logo that's much better than the previous one.

I would like for them to get a new arena though. I know one is in the works for Phase II of the new athletic complex.

Yes. We could have a stronger one, more basic, more iconic, not a roadrunner, something more memorable, etc...

It is not just the logo but mascot that is also part of the brand.

UT in Austin has a strong brand for instance.

UTSA has only been around for what, a few decades?

I think it's best to just build on what you have. And that format for the logo may be a little overused, but this looks good. I don't see why it needs to be changed.

I would also like to congratulate UTSA for moving from FCS (1-AA) to FBS football (1-A) faster than any other American university in history, since the NCAA split division 1 football. Many people doubted this leap would ever happen to UTSA...so two years after hiring coach Larry Coker, one recruiting class, and several practices/scrimmages later, here we are.

BTW, if you ever get a chance to make a scrimmage do it. They're free and usually alot of people show up. The next one is next Wednesday at the alamodome at 7pm.

That's crazy that they haven't played a single game and they're already getting into D-1. Count me as very excited about it!

Congratulations UTSA. This move definitely bodes well for the future of the football program as well as all the other sports at the University.
