Broccoli salad packs a powerful crunch. The vegetable is also chockful of nutrients. Not a fan of broccoli? Accent it with bacon, sunflower seeds and raisins. Many variations of this recipe also call for cubed or grated cheddar cheese for extra zip. (www.yummly.com)

College Football: Texas State moving closer to football series with Baylor

By JOE VOZZELLI
Sports Editor

Texas State wants to schedule more in-state non-conference games in football.

Athletic director Larry Teis made as much clear in July when the Bobcats announced they had added a home-and-home series with Southern Methodist University starting in 2019. Texas State heads up to Dallas in 2019 and the Mustangs will be in San Marcos in 2020.

Well, the next shoe to drop may be even bigger.

Women's College Soccer: Texas State starts strong, fades late in loss to UTEP

By JOE VOZZELLI
Sports Editor

Scoring first isn’t always a good thing.

That’s what Texas State learned during its 2-1 setback to UTEP on Sunday afternoon at the Bobcat Soccer Complex.

Once Lynsey Curry hammered home a goal off a back tap from Lauren Prater in the third minute, the Bobcats appeared to be in a good position. In fact, the early tally seemed to be exactly what the doctor ordered, especially after a scoreless effort almost 48 hours prior against McNeese State.

Guess again.

Behind Enemy Lines: FSU names Golson as starter for opener against Texas State, Cook back at full speed

By JOE VOZZELLI
Sports Editor

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher made the choice that most college football pundits expected him to.

After an open competition for the starting quarterback job throughout preseason camp, Fisher announced after Monday’s practice that Everett Golson, the favorite from the moment he walked on campus in June, will be the Seminoles’ starting quarterback against Texas State. Golson ultimately beat out Sean Maguire for the nod.

Earlier on Monday, Fisher hinted that he was close to naming the starter.

Featured Story: The many sides to Tyler Jones

He’s an enigma.

Especially for those people who aren’t members of the Texas State football team’s inner circle. The star quarterback who doesn’t seek the spotlight. The first person to take the blame when the Bobcats lose. He won’t claim any credit when they win, though. He’s guarded in front of the media, but comfortable around his teammates. The Stephenville product who once told his head coach that he was ready to take over the starting job at Texas State as a true freshman on a sideline in Lubbock.

High School Football: Rattlers hold their ground in 45-44 victory over East Central

Don’t let the scoreboard fool you.

San Marcos’ 45-44 season-opening victory over East Central on Friday night was the second consecutive year these two prolific offenses showcased their talent, but the Rattler defense — predicated on big plays — made the difference.

Tied at 38 in the fourth quarter, Hornets quarterback Justin Upshaw-Mendoza methodically worked the his offense down the field and East Central looked poised to take the lead.

College Football: It's game week at last for Texas State

By JOE VOZZELLI
Sports Editor

At this point next week, Texas State will either be 1-0 or 0-1.

After all, the Bobcats kick off their 2015 campaign with a visit to Tallahassee, Florida, to meet Florida State on Saturday.

So, how ready is Texas State for that first game?

“I’d say we’re about a week away from being game ready,” junior safety Damani Alexcee said with a smile after last Friday afternoon’s practice inside Bobcat Stadium. “That’s just how it is. You have to trust that we’re where we are supposed to be.”

Countdown to Kickoff: Red Wolves howling once again in 2015

By JOE VOZZELLI
Sports Editor

Continuity hasn’t been used to describe the Arkansas State football program lately.

Instead, the Red Wolves were forced to play a game of musical chairs — head-coaches style — by hiring four new faces to lead the program in the span of as many seasons. With that in mind, some college football pundits have dubbed the period from 2011-2014 as the one-and-done era.

First, there was Hugh Freeze who left for Ole Miss.

Next, Gus Malzahn exited after one season at A-State for greener pastures in the form of the Auburn Tigers.
