Texas State head coach Dennis Franchione isn’t ready to crown Arkansas State, Western Kentucky or Troy. That’s just not Franchione’s mindset.
Franchione admitted that the Bobcats will probably be underdogs in the final three games of the season. After all, Texas State is a newcomer in the Sun Belt Conference and those next three opponents are league stalwarts. Plus, the Bobcats enter this weekend’s game with the Red Wolves in Jonesboro, Ark. as seven-point underdogs.
“I don’t want to give anybody credit for being better than us yet,” Franchione said Tuesday afternoon during his weekly media luncheon. “I like our team. I like our players. I like their attitude. I like their desire and hunger to do a little more.”
