College Football: Prominent Texas State booster says Franchione should stay as head coach

Sports Editor

Texas State head coach Dennis Franchione fielded a question about his job security following his team’s 41-19 loss to Georgia State on Saturday night.

“Heavens no, I’m not worried about that one bit. If they get tired of me, that’s fine,” he said after his Bobcats dropped to 2-7 overall and were guaranteed of a losing season. “My only concern is for the players.”

Well, two days later, the veteran head coach received an endorsement from a prominent Texas State University athletic booster.

Sports Editor

Danny Kaspar knew how he wanted to go about rebuilding the men’s basketball program at Texas State.

When he agreed to become the Bobcats’ head coach in 2013, Kaspar looked back at his tenure at Stephen F. Austin and saw a blueprint for turning Texas State into a consistent winner.

There will be at least one person inside Strahan Coliseum on Monday night who won’t doubt the credentials of UT Tyler.

Danny Kaspar.

Say what you will — call it coach speak or lip service — but Texas State’s veteran coach knows what the Patriots can do.

As Texas State trailed Division II opponent St. Edward's by double digits early in the fourth quarter, the players weren't wondering if a run was coming.

Rather, the Bobcats said when the run happens, let's make it count.

Texas State certainly accomplished that feat, and it was redshirt sophomore Kaitlin Walla, who is on a comeback story of her own after a torn ACL sidelined her for most of last season, that led the charge.

College Football: Bobcats can't protect home turf, fall 41-19 to Georgia State

Sports Editor

At halftime, Texas State recognized one of the greatest teams in program history: Its Barrick Nealy-led 2005 playoff squad that came within one win of the FCS national championship game.

Unfortunately, for the 13,238 fans inside Bobcat Stadium on Saturday night, the current version of the Bobcats were busy creating their own sort of memories.

The wrong kind.
