When Texas State heads to the SMU/ TCU Crosstown Challenge later this week, head coach Karen Chisum will start her 36th season at the helm.

Yet, no matter who has been on the roster and what conference the Bobcats have called their home — the Southland, Western Athletic and now the Sun Belt — Chisum’s preseason goals haven’t changed.

“My expectations are always the same and that’s by the time we get to the conference tournament to be the best we possibly can be, win it and go to the NCAA Tournament,” said

College Football's Countdown to Kickoff: Idaho optimistic about 2015 season

By JOE VOZZELLI

Before preseason camp opened up, Idaho head coach Paul Petrino laid out a three-step recipe for his team’s success in 2015, namely strong quarterback play, a good defense and an efficient running game, particularly with the lead in the fourth quarter.

In Petrino’s estimation, the Vandals have the pieces to accomplish all three feats — despite the fact that they weren’t consistent in any of those areas last season.

After all, Idaho quarterback Matt Linehan, a true freshman in 2014, was turnover-prone (18 interceptions).

Last Time Out: Bobcats sack Vandals during last season's 35-30 victory

By JOE VOZZELLI

Whenever Texas State needed a big play against Idaho, the plan was relatively simple: Hand the football to Terrence Franks.

Franks ran over, through — and most of time — past defenders to churn out a career-high 284 yards on the ground during a 35-30 victory over the Vandals on Saturday night inside Bobcat Stadium.

“I went out there and ran the ball like I always do,” Franks said. “I just needed to step up. I remember my redshirt freshman year running for 234 (yards) against Southeastern Louisiana.

Running with Moe: The mental side is just, if not more, important the physical side

Running with Moe

I was reading over some race results from various cross country meets and noticed that on several the times in the state meets were often several minutes slower than the week before in a regional meet.  

It got me wondering what the cause of this decrease in performance from one week to the next. Was it a fault in training before the big meet or was it a mental state that was the result of slower times?

It wasn’t an easy task, but Demun Mercer had to put his days as a quarterback behind him.

Would he have liked a chance to play quarterback at Texas State?

Absolutely.

Yet, the change to wide receiver has been a welcomed sight for the redshirt sophomore who has shot up the Bobcats’ depth chart and, by all accounts, is poised for a breakout season.
