College Football: Post-Game Thoughts (Southeastern Louisiana Edition)

  • Texas State was outplayed Saturday night in Hammond, La. The Bobcats stayed with Southeastern Louisiana for 30 minutes, but were outscored 10-0 in the third quarter, which provided the difference in a 38-28 loss.
  • Want to know how hell-bent Texas State is on running the ball? Once the Bobcats got down by 10 points with 9 minutes, 53 seconds remaining in the third quarter, until they were FORCED to pass (six minutes left in the game, down by 10), head coach Dennis Franchione called 15 rushes (one went for a 74-yard touchdown) compared to five passes. Texas State’s final 12 plays were passes, which netted 42 yards (29 of which came on a completion to junior tight end Chase Harper).
  • Junior quarterback Shaun Rutherford finished the game completing 12-of-21 passes for 172 yards a touchdown. Seventy-five of those yards came from a long touchdown pass to senior Darius Bolden, and six of Rutherford’s final nine passes were incomplete.
  • Redshirt freshman running back Terrence Franks was sublime Saturday night, rushing for 234 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Franks finished 76 yard shy of a single-game school record set in 1996 by Claude Mathis (310 yards).

    This game had the poorest offensive calls I’ve seen all year. We went back to the one demensional run game and got beat by a team that we destroyed by Lamar. What was Fran thinking with the play calling this game. When the calls are balanced our team is good, but when we go to the one demensional run game we get our butts handed to us just like last night. Fran pass the play calling to a younger coach cause that stuff you are doing is 80’s/pop warner. Pass play calling to your son Fran he knows what a spread offense is.
