UTSA filled its head coaching vacancy Thursday evening with the hire of Frank Wilson, formerly LSU's running backs coach and top recruiting coordinator.  As the name hadn't been floating around the grapevine recently, many were surprised to learn about the news.  The overall census from the Roadrunner Faithful is a big stamp of approval.

That would be UTSA Athletic Director Lynn Hickey, mid-batflip.

And they've got good reasons to be excited.

As for the folks in Baton Rouge, well, they're not quite as excited about it.

And the rest of the world?  Well, they're pretty dang impressed with UTSA.  A lot of people didn't think the program was capable of landing a homerun-hire let alone an SEC coach.

Also, a few fun facts.

Well done, UTSA.  Well done.
