The Howlraiser Sun Belt Sheriffs Badge recognizes the intrepid Sun Belt athletic director who has “laid down the law” for other Sun Belt football programs to follow.
It was Sun Belt Entropy at its entropiest. Combined with Louisiana’s win over Georgia Southern, the much maligned Sun Belt West got an early jump on the East, a condition that may not last but so what? This is why we love the damn Sun Belt; chaos. Embrace it.

How good is Las Vegas? The line on Memphis vs. Arkansas State was +5.5 Red Wolves. A furious second half comeback by the Red Wolves and QB James Blackman didn’t deliver a Sun Belt win over the American, but it did result in a final score of 55-50. What performance enhancing dope is Vegas munching and where can I get some?

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.
