Mondays With Coach Withers: Taking Full Advantage of Bye Week Before Sun Belt

By Alexander Haynes Sports Reporter The bye-week in football is a time to sit back and actively rehabilitate while reevaluating where a team stands.

Jeff Howe Talks Texas State Athletics Exposure

By Reily Chestnut Sports Director In the hardened world of Texas State fandom, you can find some pretty scrappy characters.

The State of Sun Belt Conference Football As Bobcats Prepare for Stretch Run

By Alexander Haynes Sports Reporter The Texas State Bobcats despondent 25-21 loss to the UTSA Road Runners on Saturday did not simply drop the team to 1-3 - their only win coming against the FCS Texas Southern Tigers - but ushered in a bevy of questions which could only be answered with more gridiron action; a paradox, considering the best resolution for the Bobcats might be time off the field. If […]

Bobcats Run Down the Road for I-35 Rivalry

By Alexander Haynes Sports Reporter There are rivalry games and then there are rivalry games that impact legacy. Intrigue in rivalries can often be built around muddied hyperbole – Saturday’s gridiron showdown between the Texas State Bobcats and University of Texas San Antonio Roadrunners could not carry more implications and less hyperbole.

Mondays With Coach Withers: Managing Heartbreak, Prepping for Rivalry

By Alexander Haynes Sports Reporter Football, much like life, is a line of ebbs and flows, and when the flowing takes a sharp pivot south, the challenge becomes, “reverting back to training.” After leading the South Alabama Jaguars 24-16 at half, the Bobcats were met with a second-half defined by "a lack of rhythm,” an injury to quarterback Willie Jones, and defensive play that gave up one big play too […]

Bobcat Football Sun Belt Campaign Starting in Sunny Mobile, Alabama

By Alexander Haynes Sports Reporter The first three games for Texas State Bobcat Football set up the perfect variation of challenges; three subsequent circumstances which a coach covets to test and develop his team. The fight against the Big Ten’s Rutgers Scarlet Knights in Piscataway, New Jersey was a 35-7 loss, but a loss which thrusted a young team into the lime light of power five competition.

Mondays With Coach Withers: Lightning, Lightning Kicks and A Home Opening Win

By Alexander Haynes Sports Reporter There is an important distinction between winning ugly and winning in ugly situations. Despite a plethora of rain, lightning, potential lightning, and despondent, dark weather which forced the third quarter to last an hour, the Texas State Bobcats won their home opener against the Texas Southern Tigers 36-20. The bland sky did not keep the demeanor of the team down, rushing 52 times for 304 […]

Home Opener for Bobcat Football Opens Opportunity to Start Fresh

By Alexander Haynes Sports Reporter Opening the season in Piscataway, New Jersey was a layered challenge of facing a Big Five Football crowd, welcoming Willie Jones III to the helm at quarterback, overcoming early penalties, and trying to usurp a Rutgers Scarlet Knights program seeking their own surge of urgency into a new era.

Mondays With Coach Withers – No More Penalties and Opportunity at Home

By Alexander Haynes Sports Reporter Saturday’s 35-7 loss at the hands of the Rutgers Scarlet Knights was the opposite effect of what training camp should have carried into the season opener. The aura of Piscataway, New Jersey was not brilliant for either team – Rutgers quarterback Artur Sitkowski throwing three interceptions with the team stumbling on first game execution; Texas State quarterback Willie Jones III completing only seven of 20 […]
