Media Day Update
Louisiana writers seems to want to make a big deal out of the Oct. 21 contest between the Red Wolves and league favorite UL-Lafayette in south Louisiana.

“I do think they are aware that whoever wins the league will have to go between us and Lafayette. But we hope our kids now it is a week-by-week process.”
Arkansas State has two league games (UL-Monroe at home and at Georgia State) before the meeting at ULL.
The Red Wolves had 11 players earn spots on the All-Sun Belt team.
Four A-State players, including Qushaun Lee, were recognized as preseason all-defense first team selections. Junior defensive end Chris Stone, junior defensive back Rocky Hayes, senior defensive back Sterling Young. Junior wide receiver J.D. McKissic (Phenix City, Ala.) earned first-team honors on offense and special teams.
The second-team went to junior running back Michael Gordon, junior tight end Darion Griswold, sophomore offensive lineman Colton Jackson, senior defensive lineman Dexter Blackmon and senior defensive back Artez Brown.
Happy in Statesboro?
Who has the best conference schedule in the Sun Belt? Well it could all come down to how you figure it, but Georgia Southern is thrilled it does not have A-State or UL-Lafayette on its platter for the next two seasons.
