College Football: No days off for Texas State

Sports Editor
Sometimes a day off isn’t really a day off.

The air around the south endzone complex during Texas State’s scheduled “day off” — Monday — was a little too calm. Sure, the Bobcats don’t practice due to the NCAA’s 20-hour limit on physical activity, but to that doesn’t necessarily mean there’s nothing to be done.

Head coach Everett Withers’ word of the week to his team was, “ownership,” and during his Tuesday media press conference, the 53-year-old said that’s something his team can get better with.

Paul Urrutia cherishes the moments he donned the Rattler uniform under the lights of Texas State’s Bobcat Stadium.

Urrutia wore San Marcos purple, sported No. 52 and started at nose guard in 1985, long before San Marcos Toyota Rattler Stadium was constructed. At 5-foot-8, 152 pounds he looked far different than today’s defensive linemen, but he made the most of his playing time.

College Football: Withers: "Now we’re playing for something."

Now everything counts.

Texas State’s non-conference schedule covered both ends of the difficult spectrum. The Bobcats were only favored this season against Incarnate Word and are 2-2 heading into their Sun Belt schedule. What does it mean? In the eyes of the team and coaches? Nothing. They’re back to square one.

With their daunting non-conference schedule in their rearview mirror, the goals are a lot clearer for the Bobcats heading into conference play this weekend against Georgia State.
