It’s hard to imagine, but he’s gotten even better.

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.

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.
