Jim Harris: Malzahn Can’t Help But Be Noticed By Big-Time Programs Now With Convincing Victories

Jim Harris: Malzahn Can’t Help But Be Noticed By Big-Time Programs Now With Convincing Victories

We’ve all heard that Gus Malzahn is in it for the long haul in Jonesboro. He’s said it himself. He’s not a one-and-done for the Arkansas State Red Wolves, but instead he intends to build the Red Wolves into a program that can compete for a Top 25 ranking annually. We’re glad he says it, and we hope he really means it. The problem is, Gus, if you keep hanging half-a-hundred on the hot-name coaches in the Sun Belt Conference on their home fields week after week, you’re going to have a decision to make. And while money may not always matter, this much money at these kinds of programs will matter. read more >

Bahn: Razorbacks, Auburn Remind Us How Quickly College Football Can Change

Bahn: Razorbacks, Auburn Remind Us How Quickly College Football Can Change

Somebody will emerge from Saturday's Arkansas-Auburn game as the best of the worst. A win on Saturday won’t get either program into the national title race. Neither quarterback can use this to further his Heisman Trophy candidacy. There is a very real possibility that a victory won’t help the Tigers or Razorbacks get into a bowl game. Battling through the turmoil, finding a way to salvage what remains of the season, however, that might make for a year worth remembering. read more >

2-Minute Drill: Arkansas State 34, FIU 20

2-Minute Drill: Arkansas State 34, FIU 20

Why Arkansas State Won: Key field position from Florida International turnovers led to multiple Red Wolves scores as Arkansas State bounced back from a missed field goal to score five times behind Ryan Aplin’s 15 of 23 passing for 223 yards and one score through the air and ground each. The defense benefited from playing against FIU’s (1-5, 0-2) first freshman at quarterback since 2002 and limited the Panthers to 341 yards of total offense and just six 3rd down conversions. J.D. McKissic once again led the Red Wolves in receiving with a career high 124 yard on five catches, giving him an average of 24.8 yards per catch and one touchdown. read more >

Quick Turnaround Leads To Red Wolves Rapidly Working To Fix Issues Before FIU

A short week means breakneck preparation. That is what Arkansas State (2-3, 0-1 Sun Belt) faces as the Red Wolves play their second conference game of the season at Florida International (1-4, 0-1) just five days after falling to Western Kentucky. Work for ASU began not too long after the final gun Saturday night. ASU prefers a fast tempo on offense and defense, but the speed with which the preparation has to happen this week is fast even for the Red Wolves. read more >
