Dear reader, what is a college football coach's job? It it to win a game or to keep a game close and bettors happy by covering a spread?

I'm not sure myself, but UTSA's decisions in the fourth quarter of this evening's game has me leaning to the later as UTSA had an opportunity to take the lead but punted the ball away to lose 33-31.

Down by just one score, UTSA elected to punt on fourth and 13 from CSU's midfield, giving the Rams the ball with just a couple minutes left to seal their victory.

The UTSA coaching staff seemed  pleased with a narrow loss as the Roadrunners feel to 0-4.

UTSA was able to clean up the turnovers and many of the mistakes that haunted them over the last couple of weeks but a more bold effort was needed to ensure an upset bid against a well-prepared CSU squad.

UTSA's competition will diminish next week as the Roadrunners kick off conference play against a struggling UTEP squad. Be sure to check in for top-notch coverage as the Roadrunners kick off conference play.
