Here is a part of today’s roundtable with Brant Freeman and Brent Thibodeaux…
San Marcos — Texas State recently underwent its first evaluation of the 2011 season as Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine released its annual position-by-position scouting reports.
The Bobcats received one A, five B’s and two C’s and now it’s time to put those grades to the test. Joining me in discussing if those marks are ‘Too High,’ ‘Too Low,’ or ‘Just Right’ are Brant Freeman (radio play-by-play voice of the Bobcats) and Brent Thibodeaux from BobcatReport.com.
Tyler Mayforth: Not sure what DCTF was thinking, but it’s too high. Right now there are just too many questions to justify that grade. How healthy is Tyler Arndt? Do the Bobcats actually trust Tim Hawkins to throw the ball? Is Shaun Rutherford a true option under center for Texas State? If Arndt bounces back, Hawkins completes more passes to his teammates than the ground and Rutherford shakes off a few years of rust, the potential is there. Right now, that’s all it is.
Brant Freeman: Wow. Since there are so many questions regarding the position, it’s tough to say. There isn’t much to go off of when you take a look at the body of work for everybody involved. Tyler Arndt started four or five games as a freshman, but his injury set him back. Tim Hawkins was inconsistent, but showed flashes in his four starts and now we throw Shaun Rutherford into the mix. If you look at potential, B-plus is just about right, but right now, it’s a bit too high. I almost want to give it an incomplete.
Brent Thibodeaux: I’d say that’s just right. With With Tyler Arndt coming back from knee surgery, getting him healthy is priority number one. A 100-percent Arndt means this Bobcat team has their true gunslinger at quarterback. Hawkins is a capable back-up that can step into the starting role, if called upon. Rutherford has shown flashes at the position but his skills may be best suited at receiver.
