Further evidence the transfer portal is the only way to go

The Bobcats almost took down rival SMU, fell in double-overtime to UTSA by a field goal, lost to P5 Boston College on the road, 24-21 - among several other "close calls." And while coming close may only work in horseshoes and hand grenades, it definitely shows that Jake Spavital has this Texas State program trending in the right direction. While most other programs have been focused on recruiting high school players to develop in their system, Spavital has been signing JUCO transfers and cleaning up in the transfer portal. On paper, that looks like the quickest way to build a winner.

Burning bridges to high school recruits seems like a bad idea on paper, but it might work out for them with the extra COVID year. 

They likely won't be as backlogged on future classes because they have a bunch of guys who are there more short term. Could go either way. I don't think Spavital is going to be there much longer, but who knows

It will be interesting to see the long-term effects of this approach.

If it fails people will say he was crazy, If it works this board will be filled with "they have passed us by" and " why didn't we do this?"

Didn't feel like this was worthy of its own thread.

...don't like your PT? This guy didn't.  So he entered the portal then showed the world [apparently] why.
 

 

Yeah, he's dangerous. Baits his defender with false steps on his breaks. Alphas the ball away from defenders. Splits defenders with burst acceleration. High points well on fades for his size. Strong hands allows him to pluck the ball extremely well. Where do I sign up?

This is a series I have long said we should enter into.  Drivable both ways and San Marcos is a good place to stay overnight for a game.

Couldn't agree more. San Marcos is the prettiest college town in Texas, has a great night life, rivers, not far from amazing BBQ, etc.

Just start a petition to boot UTSA out of the conference and replace with San Marcos.  I'd sign that in a heartbeat.

second.

let's get Sol Ross up to D1 and schedule that yearly home and home. 

As someone who grew up in West Texas and visited Alpine frequently (and not because it was some hipster instagram thing to do), I agree.

For as ugly as it can be in certain places, the Chihuahuan Desert has some breathtaking views.

I love the progression of Marfa-Alpine-Marathon. from fake Prada store for the 'gram and $200/night hotels, to quaint college town, to old school West Texas stop-light town...all within 50 miles or so.

      5. North Texas  
      After winning 18 games from 2017-18, the Mean Green have slipped to an 8-14 record over the last two years. Scoring points won’t be a problem for coach Seth Littrell’s team in ’21. However, the defense has to show marked improvement to get back to a bowl.
       
      Previewing the Offense
      Strength: The Mean Green led Conference USA in scoring (34.4 ppg), yards per play (6.6), and most gains of 40-plus yards (19) last season. Littrell has to sort out an intriguing quarterback battle between Austin Aune and former North Carolina signal-caller Jace Ruder, but this unit should be explosive once again. DeAndre Torrey and Oscar Adaway III lead a strong backfield, and four starters return from one of the top lines in the league. A healthy Jyaire Shorter at receiver will help replace the production left behind by Jaelon Darden.
      Concern: Can Aune or Ruder claim the job and play with enough consistency to keep the offense on track all year? Shorter’s return is huge, but North Texas needs a couple of other playmakers to emerge at receiver. The offense has to do a better job at managing turnovers after losing 15 in 2020.
      Incoming Transfers: QB Jace Ruder; WR Tommy Bush
      Previewing the Defense
      Strength: Littrell’s hire of veteran coordinator Phil Bennett was a strong move to get a struggling defense pointed in the right direction. Tackle Dion Novil and linebackers Tyreke Davis and KD Davis are three key players among nine returning defensive starters for North Texas in 2021.
      Concern: This unit allowed a whopping 42.8 points a game and surrendered 6.94 yards per play last season. Even with a new play-caller and help through the transfer portal, major improvement might be a year away.
      Incoming Transfers: DB Logan Wilson; DB John Davis; DB TyRae Thornton; DL Kameron Hill; LB Carson Kropp; CB Ridge Texada; LB Sean-Thomas Faulkner; DL Enoch Jackson; DB Greg Francis

      SMU is 17-6 over the last two years, but if coach Sonny Dykes’ team wants to take the next step and contend for the conference title, there’s one glaring question mark to address this offseason. The Mustangs aren’t lacking for skill talent at running back or receiver, but uncertainty remains under center after the departure of Shane Buechele. Oklahoma transfer Tanner Mordecai and freshman Preston Stone are set to compete for the job and are crucial to the overall success of SMU’s 2021 season. The Mustangs gave up 30.9 points a contest last year, but seven returning starters under new play-caller Jim Leavitt should be enough to generate improvement on defense.
