The wait is over.

All speculation as to what Texas State’s brand of football will look like under head coach Everett Withers ends tomorrow when the Bobcats kickoff against Ohio in Athens.

Although Texas State will be taking on a Bobcat team that went 8-5 a season ago, ask anyone from Withers to senior quarterback Tyler Jones, this week is about beating internal challenges as much as it is about facing Ohio.

Jason Arkley is the Ohio beat writer for the Athens Messenger in Ohio. He answered a few questions for us on Saturday's season opener between Texas State and Ohio. You can follow Jason on twitter @JasonAmessenger

Q: From what you've seen in practice, what can we expect from Greg Windham. Solich called him a good, not great runner with good arm strength, is that accurate?
A: Windham has the best arm strength of any quarterback on the roster. He was 3-star signee out of Florida out of high school, and clearly has arm talent.

Sounds of Practice 8/31 - Brett Elliott and Randall McCray

Here are a few of the quotes from offensive coordinator Brett Elliott and defensive coordinator Randall McCray following Thursday's practice.

Offensive coordinator Brett Elliott:

Young Ohio secondary vs young Texas State receivers
“I don’t know if it’s benefit (for us). I don’t know if any of our (players) besides Tyler (Jones) and Gabe (Schrade) have taken a snap in a college game which is crazy. That’s going to be a challenge for us not having wide eyes and being able to stay composed and play under the bright lights.”
