Florida transfer James Blackman started for Arkansas State against Central Arkansas on Saturday night. Blackman wasn’t playing poorly, exactly, but early in the third quarter, the score was only 13-7 Red Wolves midway through the third quarter. After Blackman was forced to retire to the sideline after briefly losing his helmet, Hatcher took over the offensive and immediately flicked a 34 yard TD pass to Corey Rucker – who would go on to record two more Hatcher to Rucker scores. In a quarter and a half of work, Hatcher threw 4 touchdown and went a perfect 12/12 for a fantastic 315 QB rating. It’s hard to imagine Hatcher not starting next week against Memphis.

It was a loss that shook Jonesboro to its very core! Even though Anderson repaid the Bears last season with a 50-27 thumping, Red Wolves fans are still cringing from 2016.
I can’t imagine a scenario under Butch Jones – he with his arms permanently Gorilla-glued in crossed formation – where we’ll ever see Red Wolves execute a Flying Butt Bump after surrendering a go-ahead touchdown.
