Texas State head coach Dennis Franchione met with the media this morning for another game-week press conference.
Franchione discussed last week’s 38-7 loss to Utah State and the upcoming game against Louisiana Tech. Here is a little bit of what Franchione had to say.
On the loss to the Aggies: “Some teams might have really let down in the second half Saturday, but we didn’t do that. To be honest, when we left the locker room, I didn’t know how they’d respond. I was really interested. ‘OK. What are we made out of?’ They went out and battled.”
On this week: “We wanted FBS football and we got it. Louisiana Tech comes to town and they are the real deal. Fantastic offensive team. They score a lot of points. I hope our fans turn out and want to see this kind of football. Hopefully we’ll play as well as we can and make it into a good, festive evening in our own stadium.”
On Louisiana Tech quarterback Colby Cameron, who hasn’t thrown an interception in 358 attempts: “He doesn’t ever put the ball in a vulnerable spot. That’s hard to do when you throw the ball that much. I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone throw the ball 358 times and not throw an interception. Somewhere along the line, it bounces off someone’s hands and the other team catches it. It’s a credit to their scheme, their coaches, the quarterback, the receivers and the line protecting him.”
A bold prediction: “I’ll bet you we get one (an interception). Craig Mager or somebody. We seem to find a way to hang in there on those kind of odds. We’ve made some interceptions that have been from some darn good football plays, especially by Craig and Darryl [Morris].”
