Bobcat Mailbag (New Mexico Edition)

Texas State looks to avoid a losing record this Saturday when it heads to Albuquerque to face the New Mexico Lobos. The Bobcats are 2-2 after a 34-21 loss to the Nevada Wolf Pack last Saturday.

Do you have any questions about what Texas State can expect against UNM? Feel free to ask them below and I’ll get to them as soon as possible.

    Do you think New Mexico another running team will decide to utilize the passing game more than they normally do like Nevada did?

    • I can’t see New Mexico trying to beat Texas State through the air. The Lobos have attempted a total of 68 passes this year, completing 37. New Mexico also only passed once in the second half against Boise State, a game in which it scored 29 points after halftime.

    honestly, i use to want arndt to start at qb but rutherford has grown on me. i dont think hes the problem.. hes ran well, his arm has looked decent and hes been accurate. i think our two biggest problems are pass rushing(we seem to get absolutely no pressure on opposing qbs) and inconsistent play calling in the second half. the coachs seem to stop calling plays to win the game and start calling plays to not lose the game.. what do you think has to be done for txst to put pressure on opposing qbs ?

    • Texas State won’t get a magical DE transfer midway through the season, so right now it’s up to the players on the field and the coaches to put them in a good situation to make plays. Defensive coordinator Craig Naivar needs to dial up a few more blitzes, because his front four isn’t getting it done. However, once Joplo Bartu truly understands his role as a defensive end, the Bobcats’ pass rush will be better.
