My beloved Arkansas State Red Wolves are going bowling again. My sources in Jonesboro, Arkansas are telling me that the Red Wolves will be playing in the Go-Daddy Bowl on January 4th, 2015. The Red Wolves are 2-1 in the previous three trips and this will mark the 4th straight trip to the Go-Daddy Bowl, but the first ever with a returning Head Coach.
To make things better, all sources are indicating that the current Blake Anderson will not be leaving for another coaching position. Unlike Hugh Freeze (just signed a 4 million dollar extension at Ole Miss), Gus Malzahn (Auburn), and Brian Harsin (Boise State). Coach Anderson is going to hang around for a second trip on the merry-go-round.
But things like this are all on the players. Just to put this streak into prospective, the 18 redshirted seniors on the football team have played for five head coaches, four bowls and went 39-23 in the last five years. Their freshmen year, these eighteen players were 4-8 and since then they were 35-15.
The official announcement may not come out for another day or two. Until then, keep on rockin.
