College Football: Texas State officially adds Douglas, George to its staff

It’s official: Texas State confirmed last week’s news that Troy Douglas was making the three-hour drive southwest to San Marcos — with one caveat. 

Douglas, who had been an assistant at Sam Houston State since February, will actually serve as the Bobcats’ safeties coach in 2016. At first, it was believed that Douglas would guide Texas State’s linebacking corps, the vacancy that was left when John Wiley resigned from that post last week, citing “personal/ family reasons.”

Countdown to Kickoff: Louisiana-Lafayette poised for bounce-back season in 2016

Louisiana-Lafayette's 2015 season came out of nowhere. 

It certainly was contrary to what had become status quo during Mark Hudspeth's tenure. 

In fact, prior to last season's clunker, the Ragin' Cajuns had known nothing but success under the man they call Hud. In each of his first four seasons in Lafayette, Louisiana, the Cajuns produced identical 9-4 records and romped to four straight New Orleans Bowl wins.

Texas State University: 30 golfers take part in one 'friendly round' before Aquarena Springs course closes for good

As you walk up to the first tee near Post Road, there is a sign that reads: "Course is closed! No play is allowed!!"

But, on a steamy Friday afternoon, the Texas State University golf course was back in business one last time. 

About 30 golfers — spread across the nine-hole golf course — teed off at 2 p.m. last Friday to say goodbye to something that had been a tradition for generations.

LAFAYETTE, La. — Whatever the coaches are telling Texas State at halftime, they may want to change it up.

Similar to three weeks back in a shootout loss to Southern Miss, the Bobcats came out lethargic after the break and paid for it dearly once again.
