A-State Edged by South Alabama in Regular Season Finale
« on: November 29, 2019, 09:29:42 pm »

MOBILE, Ala. (11/29/19) – Trailing by 10 points in the fourth quarter, the Arkansas State football team rallied to take a lead, but South Alabama edged the Red Wolves 34-30 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium Friday in the regular season finale.

“It took us a little while to respond when this game got going,” said A-State head coach Blake Anderson. “We were frustrated on both sides early and struggled to get stops and they made some big throws. Fortunately, the guys battled back and made a game of it, but it’s tough to play here. We talked all week about how we were going to get their best game and that’s what we got. We came close, but we have to make plays when it matters.

Time for Blake to move on. Maybe take a year or two off to spend time with his family and do proper grieving for his wife.

It will have to be his choice to move on. ASU cannot fire him as it would be a PR disaster.

That's true. At least until next year anyway.

Looks like a typical BA season (underachieving, bad losses, yet winning record,and bowl invite, ) as far as results, except it was anything but typical with the loss of Wendy and all the critical injuries.

Losing to South Alabama was a horrible loss that should get a coach fired.

In a lot of places it likely would. But at ASU as long as he wins more than he loses and the bowl streak stays alive he is in no danger of losing his job. At ASU the PTB are satisfied with being "better than most" in the Sunbelt, when they actually could be the "best of them all" in the Sunbelt. IF they held Anderson to accountability.

 And no one wants to be the school that fired a coach in the same year he lost his wife to cancer. That would be a huge proverbial PR nightmare that could make it tough to hire a quality coach as a replacement.

They have one or two of these type losses every year, so they are kinda conditioned to them.

Will say this loss to USA is not going over well at all.

The Wolf Pack has a taste for blood.

There is a rumor that Blake is interviewing with Mizzou this week.
