Here's the reality:

Is this more than Texas State has ever had at a home game? Yes, significantly
Was the game day atmosphere cool because of the excitement around a new program and the numbers that were there? Probably
Do we expect that this kind of atmosphere and attendance will continue past a few games? No.
Will it be anything similar to the first game? Not a chance.

I was there, and for a first-ever football game for the university, it was an exciting, loud atmosphere, and exceeded my expectations. I had guessed around 55k for attendance, so I was close! It was also great to see the UTSA marching band out there performing at pre-game and halftime. For a start up band, 225 members out of the gate is not bad!

For me, the best part of last Saturday was now knowing we have our own football team to root for on Saturdays, instead of cheering for another school's team. Athletics here at UTSA now feels complete. :D

BTW, I thought the Bobcats did a great job against Tech during the 1st half of the game. Best of luck to the 'Cats the rest of the season. 8)

Taxman - let's let them enjoy, and enjoy with them, the start of their football program. Sometimes your negativeness adds some needed levity, but this is nothing more than a major attempt to spoil a very exciting time for our fellow school to the south. Rivalry is fine, but this is going way beyond that.



Yes, this goes beyond rivalry. I can't stand UTSA, hate them with a passion. You have to have been a TxSt athlete to understand that fully I guess (same goes with SFA, SHSU & UTA). 8) 8) :lol: :lol:

Nice crowd. Remember attendance numbers are almost always high. How off has ours been before. Texans have claimed every game to be a sellout yet their stadium is never full. They will have a drop but probably settle around 25-30000 which is awesome but won't look as good in that stadium as it will in ours. I'm excited to see Bobcat Stadium packed for Tech next year.
