4561 total graduating at uta this semester..

04-jawdrop And no football because?

yep, seems like with nearly 35,000 students there would be a movement afoot to restart football..so far the administration has turned a deaf ear to any group that springs up to support a restart..

The admin hasn't turned a deaf ear to football, but the hurdles are far greater than many UTA fans want to admit. The current and previous president are open to it, but the cost of starting up an FBS program isn't small and UTA's situation is different than the one that existed at South Alabama or UTSA.

More has been done behind the scenes in terms of starting a football program than many know, but that doesn't eliminate the hurdles.

BTW, the Athletic Department is looking into upgrading the tennis facilities, the final sports program that for a facility upgrade...

utsa is fortunate in that they are pretty much the only game in one of the largest cities in the u.s. but they have little sports history and pretty much no on campus facilities. I'm originally from s.a. and wouldnt go to school there but my sister graduated from there. I applaud them for having the motivation to start football. It has leap-frogged them image-wise past uta and txst to being in a conference where their peers are rice and utep and unt and such. quite an improvement from the slc. uta has gone a different way by improving academic standing. I value the degree in architecture I got from uta. their program is very well regarded.
