College Football: Five things we learned during Saturday’s scrimmage

Texas State’s second scrimmage of spring camp didn’t look anything like the first one.

After the offense dominated the first scrimmage, the Bobcat defense seemed motivated to show that was a fluke. Quarterback Tyler Jones and company struggled to get things going for most of Saturday’s intrasquad game. The defense had three interceptions and two fourth-down stops.

College Football: Intensity ramps up in Thursday’s practice

It wasn’t an easy day for Texas State during Thursday’s practice inside Bobcat Stadium.

Texas State head coach Dennis Franchione made sure of that with the hardest practice of spring camp. Franchione shared the role of equal opportunity critic and motivator during Thursday’s practice. As Franchione walked around groups of players, he asked a rhetorical question: “How tough are you?”

College Football: Defense brings the ‘thud’ back to Tuesday’s practice

Texas State head coach Dennis Franchione isn’t one to deliver ultimatums to his team, especially with the regular season five months off.

So, when he does, it’s heard loud and clear.

After the defense had a lackluster practice Monday, Franchione left little doubt about his feelings.

College Football: Lowe leads loaded backfield in 2014

If Saturday’s scrimmage was any indication, Texas State should be set at tailback in 2014.

The Bobcats have worked throughout spring camp on refining their passing game and adjusting to an up-tempo offense. So, Saturday’s scrimmage finally offered a chance for Texas State’s crowded backfield of Robert Lowe, Terrence Franks, Chris Nutall, and Louis Rubin to shine.

College Football: Air it out, pull it down

Texas State redshirt freshman quarterback Jordan Moore runs the option during a recent practice.

Texas State redshirt freshman quarterback Jordan Moore runs the option during a recent practice as Jeff Conway helps him through.

Instead of a practice report, how about we break down Friday’s Play of the Day.

Near the end of Texas State’s first practice in full pads, the first-string offense (with redshirt freshman quarterback Jordan Moore under center) lined up against the first-string defense. That meant sophomore wide receiver Brandon Smith went head-to-head with junior cornerback Craig Mager.

College Football: More Times Released

With the start of the 2012 Texas State football season 51 days away, it’s about time for game times to be released. Well, the Bobcats recently put out all but three of their game times for the upcoming season.

You can take a look at the schedule at Texas State’s web site by clicking here.

One of the games that sticks out the most is the Bobcats’ Nov. 24 tilt at Texas-San Antonio. It’s a bit curious as to why kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m., when a prime-time slot would be a blessing for both programs. Television coverage might not be the best either, as the game will be shown on the Longhorn Network.

Texas State opens the 2012 season Sept. 1 at the University of Houston.
