One of the things about having been around for a long time is that you can still remember some of the things that have changed over the years.

COMMENTARY: Despite loss, new-look defense creates optimism for Texas State moving forward

LAFAYETTE, La. — As the University of Louisiana-Lafayette public relations staff saluted a host of recent breast cancer survivors who were now cancer-free and rewarded with new sense of optimism in a poignant pre-game ceremony prior to kickoff — in all actuality — the battle on the field could very well have been billed as a rebirth of sorts for the Texas State defense.


San Marcos got the rebound win it needed, but at a cost.

After last weekend's loss to Alamo Heights, the Rattlers came out with a victory Friday night over visiting Floresville, 34-14, to improve to 5-1 on the season and 3-1 in District 27-5A.

During the opening drive, San Marcos quarterback David Hamilton went down with an apparent shoulder injury was out the remainder of the game. Senior backup Carl Ahrens got the nod from head coach Mark Soto and the senior proceeded to show lead San Marcos down the field for the opening touchdown.

History should tell Texas State that a 1-3 start isn’t the death knell for a team with bowl aspirations.

The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns, whom the Bobcats face in their Sun Belt opener at 6 p.m. on Saturday at Cajun Field, proved as much last season.

A day after a tough loss to Alamo Heights, San Marcos had a different strategy heading into this week.

After the team’s film session on Saturday, players and coaches went to Sunset Bowling for some weekend team bonding to briefly escape the regular grind of the football environment.

It should be noted that the event was planned to happen after the game against Alamo Heights — win, lose or draw — but it just so happened to come when the team needed it most.
