  • Re: Future Schedules

    Some insight on Tarleton State University. Located in Stephenville, TX. A town about the size of Brookings. Nearly identical in terms of undergraduate numbers. An hour and a half from the DFW metroplex. Part of the Texas A&M system, and noted for their strong agricultural/nursing programs, among others. Memorial Stadium seats 10K. They were a DII powerhouse, for the most part. Went undefeated in the regular season last year, and fielded an NFL draft pick.

    I know a lot of TSU folks, since I used to live near "the ville", as it is called. I'm hoping to get together a group of traveling Texans, for the trip to Brookings. It will be a great opportunity, to bring Texas and Dakota folks together, as they tend to be like minded, for the most part. I was in The Pride, when we played Texas State and Stephen F Austin, those few years. They were fun games. Looking forward to a quality lone star opponent. TSU has beaten FCS programs, before. All I can say is we had better not take them for granted. Tarleton is probably better than the likes of Drake, Duquesne, Long Island, etc...

      They had a SID who was very vocal on D2Football board and was very certain that Josh Rankin would never play in the NFL. I suppose he was correct on that point. Tarleton is a very good program and probably in the middle of very good recruiting. I for one look for tough game.
