Texas State’s Biggest Donor Absolutely Destroys University Over Hiring Of New Football Coach

Screen Shot 2016-01-07 at 2.34.04 PM

I graduated from Texas State in 2010. During my five or six year stint as an underperforming undergraduate at the university, I was never in denial about the fact that I was attending a middle-tier school, academically speaking, with a total joke of a football program and more hot girls than every other school in the state combined. Since graduating, not much has changed as far as I can tell. Still, I hang my diploma on the wall in my office, go back for a tailgate when I’m forced to, and give money to my old fraternity, because I enjoyed the shit out of that place when I was younger and my liver could handle it.

One alumni with slightly more money than me, whose name just happens to be on the side of the football stadium as a result of being the university’s biggest donor, is apparently sick and tired of watching other colleges in the state, like Baylor and TCU, climb the pigskin status ladder while Texas State seems content with putting out a wildly mediocre football product.

That’s what we call “going scorched earth.” Think small, be small, act small, be Texas State? Damn, dude. That was below the belt — try to keep the gloves up. This is a respected university with notable alumni such as myself, President Lyndon Baines Johnson, and the list goes on.

Really, though, if I sunk $8,000,000 into the Texas State Athletic Department, I would first question my sanity, and second go on drunken rants constantly about how they’re never going to see another dime from me. There are high school football teams in Texas that would compete with Texas State’s football program. It’s literally impossible to watch a game, even if you have money riding on it. Trust me, I’ve tried. They have to beg people to attend games at the stadium that bears Jerry Fields’ name. Can’t really blame the man for being angry.

    Bolen, you’re one of the few guys on staff that isn’t a complete moron but “more hot girls than any other school in the state”?!

    C’mon man. I know you’ve been to Baylor or TCU and you and I both know for every 7 that TxState has, those schools have about 5 hard 10s.

    Other than that, write more and take Bacon’s keyboard away.

      You’re just wrong. Texas State is a failure academically, and has a minuscule Greek percentage. However the women there are of a caliber far beyond anywhere else in Texas.

      Asking to take away Bacon’s keyboard might actually be the dumbest fucking thing you’ve said on this site and that’s saying a lot. I bet you’re a CatalinaCoke fan.

    Chip Kelly went to Oregon from an FCS school… Still, I would rather coach at a half decent FCS school over that black hole of a football program

    As a TXST alum I tailgated every home game for 5 years and went into 1 game. We will always be the drunk cousin that everyone in Texas likes but we are an athletic joke.

    Thank God the TFM staff never leaves me in the dark whenever hard hitting news regarding Texas State comes up.

      Don’t like it? Have them hire people from other parts of the country.

    What’s the point in constantly shedding a negative light on your alma mater? Do you enjoy making the school look bad along with yourself? You are the real TFM, Bolen.

      The hell are you talking about? I wrote one thing about our biggest booster going on an angry rant.

        James has really fallen off the deep end. First it was the Kardashian version of Jaba the hut and now this.

    Students at Texas State tailgate until the UPD shuts it down 20 minutes before the game when the majority of people go to the Square. At Texas State Alcohol consumption is more important than supporting the team but with a team like that it’s totally understandable… Drink Um’ Up Cats!

    “Alumni” is plural, you’re looking for “alumnus”. 6 years of studying Latin finally paying off.

    Rating Texas State as a middle tier academic school is sort of a reach, don’t ya think?

    The coach was hired from James Madison. It’s a good FCS team, hell they even hosted College Gameday. With the amount of talent in Texas, it’s hard to imagine them being as exceptionally bad as they are now for long. I think this guy overreacted, unless he was personally willing to dish out another 8mill to hire a big time coach.
