Daily Football Roundup 10-31

Rams almost pull off shocker on national TV

The Rams nearly made some must-see TV.
In Angelo State's first-ever nationally televised football game, Tarleton State beat the Rams 31-24 in front of 6,314 fans here and a lot more watching around the country on CBS College Sports Network.


"It's just interesting, because you know where they come from and you know a large part of their families," Collums said. "Many of their family members watched Chris and I play football in high school. It gives you a little different perspective in dealing with them every day. It's kind of neat, because we try to get to know all of these guys. We try to invest in them daily, and it's hard. But it's easier to invest in those (Vernon) guys, because you're almost drawn to them. You know where they've come from. You may not know exactly what they've been through, but you know them a little better than the first time they walk through the door."

"The fee increase is about more than athletics," said Carlton Cooper, A&M-Commerce athletic director. "It's about improving student life and the overall college experience both on and off the field."

"Our goal is to be a nationally competitive Division II athletic program," Cooper said. "That increased notoriety will not only increase media attention and recruitment opportunities for our program, but will strengthen the value of the degree from A&M-Commerce."
