College Football: Fact book odds and ends

While flipping through the Texas State Fact Book, a few things jumped out at me...
  • The Bobcats had some ball-hawking defensive backs back in the day. Lee Lundin set a school record in 1986 with nine interceptions while three other players — Mac Sauls (1965), Adrian Simpson (1983) and Don Caldwell (1969) — have eight. No player had five or more interceptions since Walter Musgrove in 2006.
  • No Texas State player has returned an interception for a touchdown since linebacker Joe Bell in 2008.
  • Former All-America wide receiver Da'Marcus Griggs finished six catches shy of tying for the career record in pass receptions. Johnny Parker set the mark from 1969-71 with 160. Griggs had 154.
  • Not sure if anybody is ever going to touch Claude Mathis' record of 45 career rushing touchdowns. The same goes for Cameron Luke's touchdown reception mark of 17.
  • Sterling Rogers forced seven fumbles in 2001 for Texas State. The last player to force five or more was Courtney Smith in 2008 with five.

MLB: Goldschmidt Watch

All former Texas State slugger Paul Goldschmidt does is hit.

One night after going 1-for-3 with a single in his big league debut, Goldschmidt belted a two-run home run off two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum. Goldschmidt put the Arizona Diamondbacks up 2-1 with one swing of the bat, propelling them to a 6-1 win.

Major League Baseball: Goldschmidt gets his call

Former Texas State slugger Paul Goldschmidt finally got his call to the big stage Monday night. Goldschmidt joined the Arizona Diamondbacks for a crucial three-game series against the San Francisco Giants.

In Monday's game, Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a single.

Goldschmidt faced Matt Cain on Monday and gets an equally, if not tougher, test on Tuesday when Tim Lincecum throws against the Diamondbacks.
