Practice Report 3.22.14
The offense and defense seemed to be pitted against each other from the very beginning, which led to a brutal practice for both sides of the ball. There where several altercations that led to a whole mob of participants, during Oklahoma drills, which ledd the white and maroon jerseys to collide into one giant chaotic mosh pit. "Thats just the intensity of Division I football, it could be coach driven or player driven, I prefer it to be player driven," said Coach Franchione about the physicality of practice. The tone was set for the rest of practice and it was a battle of offense and defense for the remainder of the day. The offense clearly got the best of the defense in the end, using their new fast paced no huddle approach. "Thats the advantage that tempo brings, when you see the defense tired it really plays into your hands," said Coach Franchione about the speed of his new offense. "We got the defense into a little bit of survival mode." It is hard to determine if the offense is just clicking on all cylinders for Texas State, or if the defense is simply not up to speed yet, under new defensive coordinator John Thompson. "Right now I'm gonna give the offense credit, they got us, they blocked us, but we have to tackle better, and we have to compete on every snap," said Coach Thompson after practice. "We have a lot of time to get better, we have to just get through it and get better on every play during practice." There where bright spots for the day, with a lot of big plays on both ends and it seems to bode well for the future of next years Bobcats. The offensive line looks solid and Tyler Jones seems to have total control of this new offense even as early as the first week of practice. Fall seems like it cannot come soon enough.
