Don't expect to see a United Football League game at the Alamodome any time soon.

The organization passed San Antonio up for Omaha, Nebraska.

But city leaders here don't see it as a loss. In fact, they say the UFL would have taken away sponsorships from UTSA, which starts playing football in 2011.

"

We really need to be supporting UTSA football. They need to raise like $15 million for their football program. We oughta be like Austin. UT will be our pro team!" says Bexar County judge Nelson Wolff. Over the years, San Antonio has been home to five different minor league football programs, but they have all failed.
