With All-American WR Corey Rucker portaling Jonesboro for South Carolina, the position for alpha Red Wolf wide receiver is open.
Oh, Greg! You are such a card! I’m here to tell you though, the SEC is 100% looking to a 10-game conference schedule.
This year, the Sun Belt will see an uncharacteristic dip in experience.
Sun Belt expansion provided rivalries for just about everyone but Arkansas State and Texas State, two Sun Belt West outposts looking awkwardly at each other from across the dance floor. Do we care to tango?
Jones’ desire to field faster, strong and more physical players may very well compel him to reach into the freshman sack of talent.
NIL and the Transfer Portal may someday destroy the Sun Belt, but perhaps not as thoroughly as a metal tube containing 77-year old technology.
The SEC has scanned the landscape and decided that bigger is better; the more, the merrier. The SEC has all the money in the world, but all isn’t enough. Texas and Oklahoma lines the golden coffers with more gold. Size matters now, and if we’re going to survive, we need size.
The Sun Belt has emerged from 2020’s ooze like a Greek god from an enormous seashell. We have a CVS receipt of reasons to love the Sun Belt. Why screw up a good thing? Unless we’re talking about adding members (which would be ideal), there’s honestly little reason to leave a conference that with a ceiling g so high.
Do it, Commissioner Gill. Send the invitations. It can be a text. Tell them that, because have full hearts, we will accept them into our ranks provided they work to meet our standards. After all, the Sun Belt is a conference on the rise, and we don’t need anchors from a failing ideology dragging us into mediocrity’s lukewarm depths.
New Arkansas State head football coach Butch Jones isn’t in New Orleans to ghost write Shakespeare. He’s seen flanked by well-dressed muscle – TW Ayers and Andre Harris Jr. Jones’ walk-up music isn’t the AC/DC old-standard Chip Lindsey dials up; it’s the Arkansas State fight song. Nonsense does not a Butch Jones confidant.
