Notebook: Texas State plans to go back to 'drawling board' to fix ailing defense

Sports Editor

Everything may have been forgotten had Texas State been able to make one stop with last Saturday night’s game in the balance.

The missed tackles, the blown coverages, all of it.

Yet, after the Bobcats moved within one score of Southern Miss, their defense failed to change the narrative from the prior 52 minutes.

Instead, Jalen Richard gashed Texas State’s defense one last time and in the process delivered the final nail in the coffin.

Call it a coincidence or the forebearer for the remainder of the night.

But, following Texas State head coach Dennis Franchione's sideline tirade early in the third quarter, Saturday night's tilt appeared to turn in Southern Miss' favor. The Golden Eagles found second life while the Bobcats had a hard time regaining their composure.

As a result, Southern Miss surged ahead of Franchione's team and held on for a 56-50 victory over Texas State in front of 27,252 fans inside Bobcat Stadium.

Tyler Jones is that good.

Believe the hype surrounding the junior quarterback this season because if it wasn’t for an unreal individual performance from him, Texas State has no chance in this game.

160 yards on the ground and 310 through the air from Jones including a 53-yard touchdown run after Texas State recovered an onside kick in the middle of the fourth were the reason the Bobcats had a chance to make it a game at all.

What happened in the first quarter?
