If you look at page one of the UTSA football media supplement, you’ll see a big orange box exclaming “We Are UTSA.” It is part of UTSA’s initiative to encourage the national media to refrain from using UT-San Antonio, Texas-San Antonio, UT-SA, TSA, TX-SA, or any other variations of the school name.
A large group of UTSA fans (including myself) have jumped on board with this initiative. If there is a media outlet using any of the aforementioned names, we will promptly correct them and let them know that we are UTSA.
Unfortunately, I’ve noticed that many Roadrunner fans, as well as the local media, haven’t extended the same courtesy to some of the teams who have played against UTSA this year. Here are just some of the names I’ve seen over the past few weeks:
If our fans and media can’t even get the names of their schools right, then why should they bother learning the proper acronym for ours?
As a fan fighting for our team to be known as the UTSA Roadrunners, I urge each of you to extend the same courtesy to our opponents and refer to each of them by their correct name.
Also note that, unlike the NSU RiverHawks, we are the Roadrunners, not the RoadRunners or Road Runners. I’ve seen this mistake made in a few places recently as well.
We are the UTSA Roadrunners.
