For years, this tongue-in-cheek statement has been emblazoned on UTSA T-shirts, taunting students and administrators, daring someone to make the first move toward creating a football team. Soon, those shirts, and that statement, will be out of date. And what a good thing that is.
Roadrunners, we're about to make history. We're just days away from that first kick off, the first snap and the first of many touchdowns to come.
But it's not only about the touchdowns, is it? It's about the opportunity, the traditions, the culture that football brings. In this special issue of Sombrilla, we wanted to capture the thrills of football—all of them. As much as football is about the team on the field, it's also about the staccato rhythm of the drums from the marching band. It's about the flair and excitement that the cheerleaders bring. It's about Rowdy, pumping up the crowd. And of course, it's about you, the fans.
Football, and this issue, is for you.
So grab your popcorn, hotdogs, pompoms and pennants. Take a seat in the stands and get ready for history to be made. We'll see you there.
