Post UTSA on National TV? New Reality Show?
If UTSA can land this type of coverage for their program, especially if it like Hard Knocks, it would be a major get for the program...

Quote:
UTSATailgaters learned earlier today from at least three sources within the UTSA program, that the "FOX" network has been in contact with UTSA about airing a reality series previewing UTSA athletics, but with a heavy emphasis on the start up football program.

FOX is one of the major networks and has such affiliates as Fox Sports, FX and FCS (Fox College Sports). Nothing is official and details surrounding the negotiations have not been released. UTSA is lead by two nationally known figures, Athletic Director Lynn Hickey and Head Football Coach Larry Coker. With names like that in leadership positions, opportunities are coming a plenty when it comes to national exposure for the up and coming UTSA football program and UTSA athletics in general.

appears this is more of a local fox idea for FSSW:

Via Dan McCarney of the SAEN.....

"Hard Knocks" it probably won't be, but a spokesman for Fox Sports Southwest said Tuesday that UTSA is in discussions with the network to develop a documentary-style TV show based on the Roadrunners' attempts to get a football program started from scratch.

A UTSA source said the idea came from a chance meeting between head coach Larry Coker and FSW general manager/vice president Jon Heidtke on a flight to Dallas. Heidtke threw the idea out, Coker liked it, UTSA marketing director Jim Goodman got involved, and the discussions -- two phones calls and numerous e-mails, according to the source -- unfolded from there.

UTSA is also in the process of doing its own shoot, gathering internal footage for some sort of promotional DVD.

Still, interesting concept...

Of course, UTSA Tailgaters blew it up a little much. FSSW and FSN are within the same pyramid, but not deserving of the same kind of pub...
