I do my best to stay out of these things but if you wonder about SI and his comments on the stAte program just stop in on the stAte 247 forum. https://247sports.com/college/arkansas-state/Board/. He's not the best reference point for the program.

I agree with that. The team looked well coached, but haven't been able to practice and put everything together like they would've in a normal season. This team will just keep getting better and better as the season moves along.

A team which was mentally ready does not commit 12 penalties.

I would agree BUT a team in its first game that hasn't been able to practice as much as usual does. We now have a off week to clean things up...

Ark St. went through both spring/fall camps and it showed. Memphis play reminded me of a spring scrimmage. Understandably so, as several starters had only been together for a few weeks... less than mid year enrollees playing in spring scrimmages come to think of it. Coaches and players adjusted and got a win. From that perspective, impressive, imo, with a lot to look forward to. I'll be disappointed if there isn't noticeable improvement next game...unless covid :( Then again, next men up did pretty good against a staff and team that has been together a whole lot longer. Prolly get to see some unique personnel combos this year. Plenty of opportunities for players to show what they can do.
I love the rationalizations fans come up with when their imaginary team does not materialize in game one, when they actually don't know crap about their real team much less their opponents real team.

In the real world Arkansas State is a good team than can beat most G5's (and I took the time to show you why) , Memphis is an even better team that can beat a lot of P5's. See the real world is not that hard, and the truth not your enemy.

Well unless you are Donald Trump,and if you are then my apologies, did not mean to upset you Mr. President with that truth thing. My bad. Just remember there were enough idiots in a few swing states to elect you in 2016, so hang in there, my guess is most did not get any smarter.

You're still delusional in every aspect. In the real world, a team favored by 16 and wins by 13 is only a mild upset. AR State jumped on the Tigers early as we were having to break in three starters that were only starters for less than 3 days due to C19 and other issues. Once we recovered from the first two drives, you never seriously threatened to win the game.

The AState offense is good, the defense is not. We played VERY vanilla, hardly ever stretched the field and STILL managed more than 500 yards of offense.

The truth is you are a liar. I've watched you for years on this site peddle your "Boise of the South" narrative and then backpedal when the real world didn't match your BS. The only pathetic thing is that I am sure we will have to consistently read your nonsense over the length of this contract regardless of how resoundingly we thump A State.

(to every other Arkansas State fan, I apologize for what I said about your team. I have thoroughly enjoyed every trip I have made to your stadium and your fans have always been great. Look forward to a great series. It's a shame you have an idiot like that which makes it very hard to be polite to your team)
