College Football: Texas State schedules PAC 12 foe in 2017

Sports Editor

Texas State is spreading the wealth throughout the “Power Five.”

In all reality, it’s the opposite way around.

Once the 2017 season comes to a close, the Bobcats will have played at least one representative from each of the “Power Five” conferences during a seven-year stretch.

Texas State made that official on Wednesday afternoon when Dennis Franchione’s team added Colorado to its non-conference slate in 2017. The Bobcats and Buffaloes plan to face off on Sept. 9, 2017.

Outdoors: There is nothing like snagging a flounder


I love to catch all of the “big four” fish in the Texas coastal bays. The long power runs of a redfish are super exciting. The head shaking leaps of a speckled trout are beautiful. The black drum is not spectacular, but he is a real slugger.

But, my favorite of the four fish is the flounder. The flounder’s bite is subtle, much like a black bass taking a plastic worm. Sometimes you feel a light tap and then pressure. Most of the time the lure just feels weighty.

That’s a flounder bite.

MLB: Tracking Goldschmidt's pursuit of a triple crown

Sports Editor

For the longest time, horse racing’s triple crown has been considered as the most difficult feat in sports.

After all, before American Pharoah ran away from the field at the Belmont Stakes in June to take home the trifecta, thoroughbred racers hadn’t attained the sport’s crowning achievement in 28 years.

And yet, that number doesn’t even come close to the 78 years that have elapsed since a National League player has claimed baseball’s most-elusive accolade. 

College Golf: Texas State's Saunders punches ticket to U.S. Amateur

COLUMBINE, Colo. — Texas State men’s golfer Tyler Saunders qualified for the U.S. Amateur Championship on Monday.

During the sectional event at Columbine Country Club in Columbine, Colorado, Saunders used a second round 9-under-par 63 to finish in second place and take one of three spots available for the U.S. Amateur Championship, which is held Aug. 17-23 in Olympia Fields, Illinois.

Texas Water Safari: "Texas Flood" successfully defends its crown

Sports Editor

It’s never easy to win the Texas Water Safari. After all, they don’t call it “The World’s Toughest Canoe Race” for no reason.

Whether it’s the elements (near 100-degree heat), wildlife or a sheer lack of sleep, the Water Safari tests even the most experience racers.

“Texas Flood” has certainly turned that theory on its head the past two years.
