Here's some media coverage of TSU.

https://smcorridornews.com/preview-texas...-michigan/

https://www.sanmarcosrecord.com/sports/c...n-michigan

From the second link: "Two players were supposed to return to practice on Thursday, along with another two on Friday."

"Six more will be available again on Saturday in time for Texas State’s road game at Eastern Michigan — if they can clear their protocol. But they’ll have to fly commercially out of Austin at 5:30 a.m. CDT to land in Detroit at 9:22 a.m. EDT to drive half an hour west to arrive in Ypsilanti, Mich., less than four hours before kickoff."

"The head coach said it would be tough to put those players on the field considering they haven’t practiced all week. But they’ll be helpful if emergency situations arise, as they did last game."

So they had 25 guys out, with 4 returning that the coach feels will be able toplay. So they are still down 21 players. Now we don't know how many are two-deep guys, but that has to affect them. Let's just hope the Eagles stay (relatively) healthy.

Sounds like they will for sure be without at least a handful of guys. I'm hoping we get our secondary back in (Bogan, Vadan).

Fired up for the game.
Down 21 players! Wow! Even if it's only 5-7 starters! EMU will hopefully be 3-1 as most of us expected!

WORTH NOTING: every recruit TSU has this year is a transfer. not one freshman. gelling that many guys takes a minute.

RE: Game Week: Texas State
Lol what a buried lead. Why isn't the headline of that San Marcos article "25 Texas State Players out until Thursday with COVID" instead of "Cats . . .[playing football]?"

Anyway, I don't think they're down 21 players, it's more like nine. The San Marcos article has the coach saying 15 players are out until Thursday, of which four were supposed to be back on the roster by Friday. That leaves nine players still unavailable as of today.

Of those nine, 6 are being flown in at the last minute (assuming they test negative), and 3 can't play or travel at all.

Yeah. Not the best prediction there. Ouch!

You missed the last sentence.

Obviously I’m happy to be wrong.
