    The first year of the Jeff Traylor era in San Antonio is primed to be a disaster.  There’s been a COVID outbreak.  13 players missed practice on Tuesday.  8 players have already been ruled out for Saturday’s game and more announcements may come between now and kickoff.  Taylor’s quote: “The whole season has been a contingency plan.”  For a first year, first time head coach at the collegiate level; with new coordinators and installing new schemes on both sides of the football, I’m expecting some real growing pains the first few weeks.  It’s surely worth noting that UTSA had no spring practices before the shutdown.  Plain and simple – this team isn’t ready.

    Texas State is ready.  Jake Spavital went through his ugly growing pains in his first season on the job last year.  We’ve already seen the Bobcats play a competitive game against SMU, getting off the rust in a game where they were undervalued by the betting markets by three scores.  Memphis transfer Brady McBride looked good at QB in the opener; their top two backs averaged 7.7 and 6.8 yards per carry.  Their defense forced three turnovers and three punts against a high octane offense.  Taking a step down in class here, we can expect the kids from San Marcos to win this one by margin.  Take Texas State.
