Arkansas State to host a “State of the Pack” Zoom Event, and You. Are. INVITED!

NEW ORLEANS - JULY 27: Photos of th 2022 Sun Belt Conference Football Media Days at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel on July 27, 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Just as the volcanoes and tsunamis of mass discontent threatens to engulf Red Wolves Nation, the powers-who-be have tossed a sacrificial virgin into the bubbling magma, to which the ancient gods have belched, “State of the Pack….LIVE!”

According to a statement released by the powerful Jerry Scott, the A-State Athletics Department “will conduct a special “State of the Pack Live!” Zoom program Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 5:30 p.m. Naturally, Arkansas State Athletic Director Vice Chancellor for Intercollegiate Athletics Jeff Purinton will be on hand to deliver all the skinny.

Head football coach Butch Jones and head track & field coach Jim Patchell will serve as Mr. Purinton’ wingmen at the virtual event, with the promise of “several student-athletes” to be on hand for added support.

Is that it? Nope! Arkansas State University Chancellor Dr. Todd Shields is slated to deliver a message or two. But most importantly, Arkansas State legend and NFL Superstar Demario Davis will be in attendance. Matt Stolz (who I recently mistook for as Mickey Ryan) is tasked with the MC duties, and I suspect he’ll do a knockout job.

That’s a lot of star power for one Zoom, and I’m not sure if the state’s heroically insufficient broadband is robust enough to handle the influx of radioactively charged protons. However, I greatly appreciate the effort, as I suspect many of us do, as we’re all dying to know if Arkansas State will field a beach volleyball team any time soon.

If you want to join me in participating in this ambitious event, you can register online at  Per the release, “Attendees can use the registration page to submit any questions they would like reviewed and addressed during the program, time permitting.  The program will also be available on A-State’s official social media channels, including Twitter (@AStateRedWolves) and Facebook (AStateRedWolves).”
