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 State’s History in the Making

The big prize has Texas State salivating. There have been wins this season – six in all. Not enough for a conference title, but enough for a modicum of respect. Perhaps a bowl game. Pretty please? Read More | Comment »

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. Read More | Comment »

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. Last Saturday, I watched the Bobcats play football on television, but I couldn’t watch the University of Texas Longhorns. Read More | Comment »

Texas A&M Handles UTEP

The concept of the money game is simple: The big school pays the little school to play an acknowledged non-competitive game. Thus is the nature of big-time college football. The local economy needs a certain number of home games, and small-budget teams need these paychecks to fund their school’s athletic department. Read More | Comment »

Texas State Battles the Devil

In the film Broadcast News, Albert Brooks’ character talks about the devil as being not a harbinger of evil, but of mediocrity: “He will be attractive! He'll be nice and helpful. He'll get a job where he influences a great God-fearing nation. He'll never do an evil thing! Read More | Comment »

Stoops to Franchione: Bobcats Need A Badass Snowball

Editor’s note: Joe O’Connell claims the following message was left on his old-school answering machine hooked up to his old-school landline. He also claims zippers are the devil’s work and the Internet is something involving spiders. Don’t believe a word he says – ever. Read More | Comment »

Texas State Is on the Rise

Here’s a challenge for UT football fans: Your team sucks. They don’t know how to tackle, the coaches will (and should) resort to putting a freshman in at quarterback. The athletic director just quit. This will be a losing season and Mack Brown’s last as head coach. It’s time to turn the dial. Read More | Comment »
