  • The Ties That Bind Us - TSU and ETSU

    Since this will be the last time we will play for a while I thought we could discuss some common threads that bound our programs

    My Dad played for commerce back in the early 80’s and one of the key reasons I went to Tarleton was because of a man named Ron Newsome. He was a coach at ETSU when my dad was there.

    Not to mention the more obvious one being Bobby Fox, which our alumni tournament is named after him.

    Would love to have Mel come out for that sometime!

    Can anyone think of any other links?

    Ron Newsom was an interesting, funny, and great guy. I sure had fun in his class when he always brought up Billy Fred and Betty Fred. Hopefully we can bottle up the TAMUC QB better than the last time.

        The VP of Student Services/Dean of Students at TAMUC is Newsome's nephew.

          Presidents cup

          The President's Cup is a traveling trophy that is awarded to the winner of the annual Football game between A&M-Commerce and the Tarleton State Texans. The Cup is sponsored by the Texas A&M University System and the Presidents of the respective institutions as TAMUC and TSU are the two largest schools in the A&M System behind Texas A&M University, the flagship institution. Currently, A&M-Commerce holds the lead in the series between these two schools with an overall record of 15–14 against Tarleton State. Tarleton currently holds the President's Cup after defeating A&M-Commerce by a score of 35–21 during the 2019 season

            Newsome was a great guy. Miss him.

            I'll also miss the rivalry, but who knows. We may meet up again soon.

              How about next year at The Star?

                Newsome was a close friend and a great American. He loved the Lions and the Texans both. He did a lot for a lot of students through the years and called some great ballgames. He was one of a kind, and I miss him!

                  Amen! He is missed dearly by those who knew him!

                    You don't want to schedule the Texans for a game in the future as the game will not count in the SOS.

                      Headed to the game.

                      Wishing safe travels for all Commerce folks and a good football game. No injuries.

                      Go Texans.
