College Football: What was different about State's showing against Houston than Arkansas?

Believe it or not, there were some positives to come from Saturday night.

After reviewing film of Texas State’s loss to Houston, head coach Everett Withers felt that as far as matchups went, his team, more specifically the offensive line, read their assignments better than they had against Arkansas.

Bobcat Football: Breaking down two key moments from Saturday

Two key plays from Texas State's triple overtime win against Ohio were developed well before they transpired on the field.

For offensive coordinator Brett Elliott, the decision to dial up a double pass from quarterback Tyler Jones to L.G. Williams back to Jones during the third overtime was in the back of his mind ever since the end of last season at James Madison.

College Football: Explaining the "cleanse" of Bobcat Football

There was a lot of 3-9 hanging in the air at Texas State following the conclusion of last season.

The Bobcats’ 2015 record wasn’t just a result of events on the field, but during practice and in the classroom. It was a 3-9 mentality — in other words it was a losing one. Players will tell you themselves.

When head coach Everett Withers arrived in January he told them there was too much 3-9 in San Marcos. Not being one for losing or maintaining losing programs, he implemented "the cleanse” soon after he took over.

Texas State lost the majority of battles on the frontline in 2015.

Both offensive and defensively, the Bobcats struggled to initiate a push to either clear short-yardage running lanes or penetrate into opposing backfields. Along the offensive line, mounting injuries led to a carousel of a starting group and resulted to an overall poor performance in the trenches.

Back in March, Frankie Griffin’s name wasn’t known to many Texas State fans.

Or even the media, for that matter.

And rightfully so as Griffin, who was redshirted as a freshman and sat out the 2015 campaign with a knee injury, hasn’t compiled any stats in a Bobcat uniform.

Yet, in the aftermath of Texas State’s spring drills, the Spring native earned the praise of Everett Withers.
