How did Troy get the ball at the UTSA 20 after the interception?  I missed that part.  

 

The game's officiating crew, from the Mountain West Conference, was led by referee Christian Watson and umpire Ian Malepleai.

 

It was called incomplete, but then they reviewed it and called it interception with a fumble recovered by Troy.

lookin like a nice choke job by UTSA. Not scoring a TD when they were 1st and goal a few minutes ago was turrrrible

and why they failed to being even worse.

I haven't been this mad a playcalling since Mackovic in 1997. "OK, lemme get this straight. You're running the ball so effectively, you get from one end of the field to the other by handing the ball off to your star. Then for some godforsaken reason, you throw 3 incomplete shit passes to end up scoreless. why"

yeah, you can argue that the dropped TD was a decent play call, but 3rd and 4th down calls were shit. 2nd down from the 3 yd line and three straight passes, wtf. We'll see if they can pull it off on this last drive.

This game had some horrendous officiating. On Troy‚Äôs go ahead scoring drive did anyone catch an explanation for the personal foul that was called on UTSA before the ball was even snapped? I never heard the announcers address it, other than some flimsy ‚Äú and that‚Äôs gonna be another Troy first down‚ÄĚ remark.

What actually happened there?

Traylor may lose another staff member...

Sources: Purdue targeting one of top Group of 5 offensive line coaches

Matt Mattox could become the third UTSA coordinator to take a Power 5 job in the past two years.

ZACH BARNETT     JAN 7, 2023

Purdue is targeting UTSA co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Matt Mattox to coach its offensive line, sources told FootballScoop on Saturday.  A deal is not in place as of this writing but both sides are moving in that direction, sources said.

Mattox has been on Jeff Traylor's staff all three seasons as offensive line coach and run game coordinator. He was promoted to co-offensive coordinator ahead of this season. 

The Roadrunners boasted one of the nation's most balanced and explosive offenses in college football this season. UTSA rushed for 175 yards per game and threw for 300, averaging 6.37 yards per play (t-26th nationally) and 36.8 points per game (14th). UTSA also ranked in the top 30 in FBS with 4.5 tackles for loss allowed per game. The back-to-back Conference USA champions have won 23 games over the past two seasons, trailing only Georgia, Alabama and Michigan nationally. 

New Purdue head coach Ryan Walters has moved aggressively to fill out his offense. He hired former North Texas, USC and West Virginia offensive coordinator Graham Harrell to bring the Air Raid to West Lafayette, then secured Texas transfer quarterback Hudson Card to run it.

Walters inherited a team fresh off its first Big Ten West championship, so the expectation will be to hit the ground sprinting. 

UTSA coordinators have been in demand of late. Traylor's first offensive coordinator, Barry Lunney, Jr., left last offseason to coordinate the offense at Illinois. His replacement, Will Stein, left to replace Kenny Dillingham as Dan Lanning's offensive coordinator at Oregon.

Prior to UTSA, Mattox was the offensive coordinator and O-line coach at McNeese. The Houston graduate has coached offensive lines at Butler Community College, Coffeyville Community College, Eastern Illinois, Bowling Green, Tulsa, Texas, and South Florida.

Update at UTSA

With Matt Mattox set to leave for Purdue and Will Stein already gone to Oregon, Jeff Traylor is preparing to continue his practice of promoting from within.

ZACH BARNETT          17 HOURS AGO

Co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks Will Stein is off to Oregon, and co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Matt Mattox is in the process of leaving for Purdue. This comes a year after the staff's original offensive coordinator, Barry Lunney, Jr., left for Illinois.

Such is life at the Group of 5 level in college football, especially when you're successful. And UTSA has been successful. The two-time defending Conference USA champions' 23 wins over the past two seasons trail only Georgia, Michigan and Alabama nationally.

Jeff Traylor promoted tight ends coach Justin Burke to co-offensive coordinator following Stein's departure, and the expectation is, once Mattox leaves, he will become the sole offensive coordinator in title with wide receivers coach Joe Price becoming passing game coordinator and assistant offensive line coach Kurt Traylor adding run game coordinator duties.

Industry sources expect Traylor to promote analyst Sean Davis to quarterbacks coach, replacing Stein. 

The moves continue Traylor's philosophy of promoting from within. Davis will become the fourth analyst to moving to the 10-man, on-the-field staff in the past three years. Price was previously UTSA's director of player personnel; defensive line coach Siddiq Haynes was previously an analyst, as was Burke. 

To fill Mattox's spot, sources expect Traylor to hire longtime TCU offensive line coach Jarrett Anderson.  Anderson joined TCU's staff as a graduate assistant in 1998 and coached every position on TCU's offense other than quarterbacks at one point or another in his near quarter century on the staff. He helped BJ Catalon become an honorable mention Big 12 Freshman of the Year as a running back, aided KaVontae Turpin into an All-Big 12 wide receiver, and developed multiple all-conference and NFL draft picks on the offensive line.

9 of the ugliest, most hated buildings in the world

Lindsay Mack & Elana Klein     Jan 27, 2023

The Alamodome ‚ÄĒ which cost $186 million to construct ‚ÄĒ opened its doors in 1993.

Despite its hefty price tag, San Antonians aren't impressed with the stadium's aesthetic.

According to the San Antonio Current, "Locals have long referred to the 64,000-seat arena by nicknames including the 'Dead Armadillo' and the 'Doo Doo Dome.'"

In 2018, San Antonio Culture Map reported that Judge Nelson Wolff, who was San Antonio's mayor during the Alamodome's construction, explained that San Antonio residents referred to the stadium as "four telephone poles on an airplane hangar" and "an upside-down armadillo."

As a guy who was just merely a child when the dome was erected and as a current bexar county resident... In retrospect the dome was a dumb ducking idea.  It was like a dorky virgin in his early 20s buying a 5 bedroom 4000sqft house for a family he'll never have.  

At the same time the alamo bowl has turned into a pretty decent second tier bowl destination.  And as a part time UTSA fan it is nice not having to worry about the heat or weather.  Still, for those living in the UTSA area and for students it's a pain in the ass to get there.

it is said to be one of the great legacies of Henry Cisneros, but really it is a fail

there was little (no) chance that SA was going to get an NFL team when it was built, but if they had a brain they would have built it large enough to host a Super Bowl and at the time it was built even though the "rules" say it has to be an NFL city to host they would have let SA into the rotation without a doubt

at the time Miami was a shit hole stajium, the Dome was a shit hole, Texas Stajium was a shit hole and too small, The Super Dome was on it's way to becoming a shit hole and yet was getting Super Bowls left and right, LA Stajiums were shit holes, but were getting Super Bowls because "LA" and SA would have been an easy choice every 5 years or so for two decades at least

the fucking thing can hold 64,000 for football and it really only needs 70,000 by the rules, but if thy did it like Jerry World and had regular seating of 69,000 to 70,000 and then cram 6,000 to 7,000 people in standing room only or other shit they would have been golden to host at least 3 if not 4 Super Bowls over the life it has had so far

instead SA was so fucking broke at the time and so stupid and so desperate they built it half assed and thought the NFL would cut them a break.....they are lucky they fell ass backwards into the final four becoming such a big deal and landed some of those

it is also a shit location and while I do not think the outside looks terrible the inside looks dumb as fuck with those upper deck corners (areas that could have been squared up and held more shitty cheap seats to get closer to 70,000 total seats

the sad thing is even if they get rid of it and do it over again they will till fuck up because well SA
