Cue the Underdog QB Fantasy
Duke DeLancellotti is the guy you gave up on. He’s the wild buddy from Dan Jenkins’ classic football satire Semi-Tough (the book, not the tepid, new-agey movie). He’s got a winning grin and a Homer Simpson semi-beard. He’s a Cali dude who dabbles in lacrosse and beach volleyball. He likes steak, women and cold beer. He’s been around the block a few times.

Texas A&M Holds Off Bulldogs
This year’s Texas A&M football team is a study in contrasts: a high-powered offense that leads the Southeastern Conference in points and yards versus a defense ranked dead last. A 51-41 win over the Mississippi State Bulldogs showed just what that looks like.

Bobcats Big Win Shown For All On Small Screen
Texas State hit a milestone last Saturday. No, I’m not talking becoming FBS bowl-eligible for the first time ever in a convincing 37-21 win at Idaho. This one’s more personal and important.
