This season, expectations have the team finishing 6th. Is that a fair prediction? I guess that’s what we’re here to discuss.
This is the “Boys Will Be Boys” Proposition; a blanket statement that excuses men from slapping a woman’s behind, drugging her drinks without her knowledge, or overpowering her in the name of satisfying an animal urge to procreate. Today, more than ever, we need men to recognize this utter bullshit.
ook past the Bears is a mistake new A-State head football coach Butch Jones can’t afford to make – just ask Blake Anderson, the former Red Wolves coach who saw his 2016 team upset by the Bears 28-23. 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.
Though Anderson sometimes said that Arkansas State was “Building a Monster,” he was not interested in creating monsters out of his players. He was interested in building up men. Let the Saban’s of the world create football machines.
Troy’s offense ranks 36th nationally – unnervingly tied with Coastal Carolina. More unsettling, the Trojan offense racks up 300 passing yards a contest, which doesn’t bode well for a defense giving up nearly 300 passing yards every game.
Ah, the Mountaineers! They of the one FCS win, and unconvincing win over Charlotte, an offensively anemic loss to Marshall and a nearly month long sabbatical from football (thanks, COVID-19!). How to define these guys?
It’s a fan’s right to gripe. With our devotion comes expectations. We want results in exchange for our dollars. But mostly, we want a program to be proud of. And if you ask us to invest in your program both financially and emotionally, you must also embrace the darker shades of enthusiasm that follows a loss.

Go ahead and summon the whaaaambulance, but Sun Belt titles just aren’t good enough anymore. It’s a little been-there-done-that, and yeah we’ve forgotten those miserable Joe Hollis years. As former head coach Gus Malzahn famously put it, it’s time for Next Level.
