SFA (1-3) VS. ANGELO STATE (1-0)

WHEN: OCT. 17 (SAT.) 4:00 P.M.
WHERE: NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS (HOMER BRYCE STADIUM)
TV: ESPN3

Moving on to the Rams of Angelo State, a team that after back to back 6-win season in 2017 and 2018, made a change at head coach, promoting defensive coordinator Jeff Girsch to that position in 2019.

In his first season ever at head coach Girsch guided Angelo State to an impressive 8-win season, their best since 2014.

The Rams started the 2019 season with a 4-game win streak that included at Texas A&M Kingsville (44-7) and #13 Midwestern State (28-6) before losing at LSC Champion #4 Tarleton State (13-30).

For the Rams, the high tide of the season came with an 8-1 record, a Top 20 Division II national ranking, and being posed for the Division II playoffs, before disappointing loses at Eastern New Mexico (17-20) and at home against #23 Texas A&M Commerce (3-17) erasing any playoff hopes.

With the departure of senior QB Payne Sullins, leading receivers Keke Chism and Lawson Ayo and leading rusher Lloyd Howard, the 2020 season looks to be a bit of a rebuilding year on the offensive side of the ball, as Angelo State turns to junior QB Zach Bronkhorst 6-3; 208 from Galveston, Texas (High Island).

Before the 2020 season Zach had only played one game in his college career back in 2018 completing 1 pass for 41 yards for a TD.

In the season opener against West Texas A&M Bronkhorst went 18 of 28 for 178 yards as well as rushing for 25 yards with no INTs.

The rushing attack looks to be headed by sophomore running back Nathaniel Omayebu III 5-11; 262 and Junior Carl Odom 6-1; 227 who both combined for 147 yards on 31 carries and 2 TDs against West Texas A&M.

At receiver Austin Landry 6-0; 195 out of Pearland, returns who as a true freshman during the 2019 season had 24 catches for 328 yards and 4 TDs.

The Rams maybe rebuilding on the offensive side of the ball, but they return quit a few starters from a conference leading defense from a season ago.

The defense led by senior linebacker Kyle Hunter 6-3; 220 out of Wichita Falls (Rider) was a 2nd team all-conference player in 2019 with 101 tackles 12 for loss 4.5 sacks 1 BU and 1 INT.

Also, earning 2nd Team All-Conference honors senior CB Devin Washington 6-1; 181 out of Jacksonville, Florida, who in 2019 led the conference in interceptions with 7, and nine pass breakups.

Last season the Rams led the conference in scoring defense, holding their opponents to 14 points a game.

The secondary led the conference in interceptions (17) only giving up 7 passing TDs in conference play, a conference leading 91.1 in efficiency.

The defensive front was 3rd in the conference with 31 sacks as well as against the run giving up 135 yards a game, also leading the conference in holding their opponents in 3rd down conversions (30.1%)

Coach Carthel could have a fight on his hands against his Alma Mater, when it comes to moving the ball.

Look for more of a defensive battle in this one, a low scoring game, with the Jacks pulling it out in the 4th.

Thought this might be a typo, but it is what is on their website. Full grown RB.

"sophomore running back Nathaniel Omayebu III 5-11; 262"

That's not a running back, that's a Mack Truck.

With the exception of two DBs, Angelo State returns everyone on defense from last season.

Only three starters return on offense, two OL and one receiver.

This defense will be, or should be much better than what the Jacks faced against West Texas A&M.

They held Tarleton State to 3 of 15 on 3rd down conversions.

This is definitely a better team than West Texas. Jacks better not take them for granted when/if they eventually play.

A reminder of what a great job our administration, coaches, and student-athletes are doing. Not one schedule change in any of our fall sports due to our folks.

Everything that has been thrown their way has been handled phenomenally and with absolute grace.

Our coordinators still call plays.. The Real Coach C I am sure will help manage game clock and make certain calls in situations where his input and experience as a head coach is needed.. We are in good hands..

I'm good at clock management...at least I'm pretty good at yelling at Mike McCarthy about how he's screwing it up. Maybe they could use me Saturday?

Thankfully, the Jacks aren't that desperate, Nacluth.

You're right. There's levels of football coaching desperation.

1.) Call dad
2.) Call 4460
3.) Call 03
4.) Call 76
5.) Call 85
6-97.) Call everyone else
98.) Call Fanatic
99.) Call Tex
100.) Call nacluth

Hmm... I guess I'm further down the list than I thought.

I remember back when we were looking for a new head coach after Harper got the boot and I was thinking maybe Coach Don Carthel at West Texas A&M could be a possibility.

Funny world we live in.

I'd like to file a protest. I demand a recount.

While Ed might have actual Coaching experience, I know the touchdown play and will call it repeatedly.

Unfortunately, my experience as a high school tennis coach and my son's t-ball coach doesn't help much when it comes to a game involving a weird-shaped inflated ball.

I was going to put your daughter in the #2 spot, but I figured once you go to the NFL, you don't come back to the Southland.

Based on what I've seen of the NFL this season, I doubt Tarleton is the only Texans team trying to score a Southland invite.
