July 29th Round-Up

Clint Conque explained his move from UCA to SFA, the article is here, but the pertinent parts are these:

  • Conque applied for the job in 2004, so the move isn't all that surprising.
  • Stephen F. Austin has the resources that Conque feels can insure success.
  • “And recruiting. I’ve coached in Louisiana and Arkansas. It would be an arguable point, but a valid point, that some of the best football played on Friday night is in Houston, Southeast Texas, East Texas and Dallas-Fort Worth. Stephen F. Austin is located in the middle of that footprint. That’s exciting to my staff and myself."
  • The budget for Conque and his staff also increased at SFA.

The Commissioner of the Southland talked the new scheduling format.

K.C. Keeler talks after Sam's first practice. Yes, there is football practice going on.

Gear Head related, it appears from the video that the Bearkats are going to a matte helmet finish.

Tech picks up a transfer from Iowa, former Mildred quarterback Nic Shimonek. Shimonek will leave Iowa to walk-on at Tech.

Tech has a SIX MINUTE HYPE VIDEO. SIX MINUTES!

The Bud's thoughts:

  • Finally someone has put a techno mash on the song from the History Channel's Vikings.
  • Jace Amaro was pretty good.
  • That's a full six minute techno remix of the song from the History Channel's Vikings.
  • It's as though Baker Mayfield never existed. It's like how the CIA removed the secret service shooter on the Zapruder film.
  • The film worked, I'm about 40% sure that Tech won the BCS title in 2013.
