Just Blake Anderson doing Blake Anderson things
Admitted today publicly to a group of reporters and boosters that he was "Offered a whole lot of money to be the head coach at SMU" and turned it down because "He still has something left to accomplish here"

For those that don't speak fluent Blake Anderson (few do) What he's actually saying is that he didn't think he could win immediately at SMU, and is convinced that we're going to having an amazing year next season and he can use that to earn himself a much higher paying gig at a much bigger program than SMU.

Whether or not he actually got offered the SMU job officially is anyone's guess. In short, Blake being Blake.

If he said he had the opportunity then he did.

SMU is a tough springboard. Chad Morris is lucky he was able to pull a payday out of it.

It's a gamble though and you don't have to look very far to see a prime example of that. Just about everyone and his uncle thought Hud at Louisiana was destined for P5 money and look how that turned out.

Well, we were finalizing a deal with Sonny when Blake was "offered". Some boosters did reach out to him though.

If Arkansas State and Blake Anderson were a Facebook Relationship status, it'd be "It's complicated"

We can be won back, but we're also teetering on the edge of going full Georgia Southern against Tyson Summers.

We give him a hard time. The fact is, he's ran a solid program. Although, if next year is another 7-8 won affair, he will have only served as a very solid segway in to what is hopefully a next level coach.
