Talk about providing bulletin board fodder : Indiana State are gonna hold the opposition to 99 points or less this weekend, no matter what. From the NY Post’s Lenn Robbins.
Texas Tech quarterback Cody Hodges never intended to disrespect the Indiana St. football team.
After the Red Raiders humiliated Sam Houston St. 80-21, Hodges said if there was a game in which his team could score 100 points, it was this Saturday against Indiana State. By Sunday night, Indiana State players, such as defensive co-captain Doc Gooden (no joke), had read Hodges’ comments on the Internet.
“That’s disrespecting us a team, as family, as men, as football players,” Gooden told The Post. “If you can’t get up for something like that, you don’t belong on the field. I don’t want anyone on the field with me who doesn’t take that personally.”
The Post spoke to Hodges (above) Monday night. He explained that he had been asked if his team was capable of scoring 100 points. Hodges said the Red Raiders had 15 possessions against Sam Houston and if they scored a touchdown on each one, well, you do the math.
“It has nothing to do with who our next opponent is,” said Hodges. “We worry about ourselves. There still is a lot we need to work on before the Big 12 schedule.”
