RWC Violently Engages WKU
Categories: Rabid Wolf ClubNo Comments »

Members of the Rabid Wolf Club traveled to Bowling Green, Ken-Tuck-eee to watch the Red Wolves open their Sunbelt play against the Hilltoppers of WKU.

As with most trips, it was the core group who made the trip which included the Captain, the Judge, Wyoming, Possum, and Jonas.  As usual Flanders refused to go, and instead guarded the Searcy city limits in fear the town would turn Baptist during the 17 hours we were away from northeast Arkansas.  McLovin’ attended his wife’s high school reunion because he was fearful that she would wise up and find a replacement if he went to the game.  No one invited Carlos and Hootie has still yet to figure out what the term pledge means.

It was an nice a trip to the moonshine state.  We were zero for two in the food stop department. On the way there we stopped at a little hole in wall that reminded me of a scene from the show Justified and on the way back we dined at the lovely Ponderosa in Central City somewhere.  As we drove into Bowling Green it reminded me of Gee Street back in Jonesboro.

The game, as most people should know, was a back and forth game with the Red Wolves pulling out a come from behind victory in the last two minutes of the game and no time outs.  In previous years the Red Wolves would have found a way to lose a game like that but this year they fought through the adversity of no rushing game and found a way to win.  We even saw Dwayne Frampton come alive, old cliche’ now, and run the Rabid Wolf Formation.  WKU has a nice little stadium but I’ve seen more fans at a Nettleton/Trumann game.  I know Western is down but for a beautiful fall day they should’ve had more fans there.

We were also honored to see the Western Kentucky Homecoming court pictured below.







The person with the T on their chest taunted Wyoming several times during the game but Wyoming got the last laugh after ASU scored the go ahead touchdown.  With :46 seconds left Wyoming ran down and told the girl, “WE ARE. A-STATE!!” or something along those lines.

All in all it was good trip and as far as I can remember it was the first time I have witnessed a road victory which made for an enjoyable trip back home.

Baltensperger Pledge Class
Categories: Rabid Wolf ClubNo Comments »

The Rabid Wolf Club would like to announce (not proudly) their newest pledges. 

Each pledge class is given a name using a letter from the alphabet.  We started with Arauco in 2007 and we are now on the letter B after Mc’Lovin and Jonas finally were initiated after four years of serving as pledges.  Since there is no set time table for pledge-ship, most of our membership will likely never see the F pledge class.

The newest members of the Baltenspeger pledge class are Wally Turbeville and Hootie Robinson.  Much like Alcoholics Anonymous, each pledge is required to have a sponsor.  It is the sponsor’s job to keep their pledge in line and make sure that the pledge carries out their duties in a proficient manner.

Wally is sponsored by the Wyoming.  Wally has the voice of a movie star and a face for print media.  It is under Wyoming’s guidance that Wally will carry out his duties that will move him closer to membership.  Hootie is sponsored by the Captain.  The Captain’s trust is tough to gain but Hootie has made quite the impression on the Captain.  Hootie has a tough row to hoe but looks to be up for the challenge.

Congratulations to the Baltensperger pledge class.

Rabid Wolf Club Becomes BONA FIDE
Categories: Rabid Wolf ClubNo Comments »

Established in 2007 as “A new breed of ASU supporters”, the Rabid Wolf Club has finally become bona fide thanks to the good folks at Arkansas 360.  We have recently been profiled by their website and thankfully not profiled by the FBI.  You can check out the article here…

 We are prepared and ready to violently engage anyone from another fan base who dares approach the Pain Train.  We look forward to meeting all of our fans during the tailgates this season.  To quote the great General George S. Patton…

A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.

Stay RABID my friends!

Wolves vs Bears
Categories: ASU Athletics, FootballNo Comments »

Well it that time again… the wolves are at home against the bears (this is not the little brown bears that got spanked by vandy last weekend) but the UCA Bears. It is shaping up to be a great evening for the game of football….. cool, clear weather, home game, in-state teams and of course the mighty RED WOLVES. RWC will be out in force for tail gateing and some serious trash talking on them bears or any other team that is not in favor with the RWC…….. the little pigletts GO TIDE. Be there catch all the action at tent city then strole over to the game and support the RED WOLVES.

There Will Be Blood…TIGER BLOOD That is!!
Categories: ASU Athletics, FootballNo Comments »

Before I author this piece I want provide the disclaimer and be upfront that I was not at the game Saturday because I was at another school, and NO not THAT school, supporting my daughter.

Although I was not there is person I had several people texting me with updates.  I was however fortunate to to catch most of the second half on the radio while listening to the Memphis broadcast.  When I say fortunate I mean that I was truly privileged to hear the Memphis crew as the Tigers were skinned one play at a time.  DOOM and GLOOM!!  Wow is all I can say in regard to the ASU beat down and bloodletting of the University of Memphis State University Tiggers.  On Sunday I watched the replay and it was everything I had hoped for.  I was like Christmas morning 1974 when I opened up my number one present, the G.I. Joe with kung fu grip along with Sea Wolf Submarine.  Josh Jarboe acting ham on the Tiger secondary, Ryan Aplin being almost perfect, Frankie Jackson’s breakout night, Bobby Zalud kicking a 56 yarder, the two’s and three’s getting valuable playing time.  The only regret was that we didn’t try to score 100 points.  Here are a few stats for the good guys that really stand out.

  • First Downs – 28
  • Total Offense – 611 yards
  • Punts – Two for 90 yards
  • Total offense allowed – 169 yards
  • Booby Zalud with a 56 yard FG

Memphis could not channel their inner Charlie Sheen and fight with his brand of tiger blood, instead the the Red Wolves took the Tigers to the slaughter house skinned them alive, tailored a coat out of it, and made them wear it home.  On a night with a full moon, the Red Wolves executed one HOWL of a game plan. 

All week long I heard on Memphis talk radio how it was beneath the UOMSU to play ASU and they shouldn’t be playing a Sun Belt team.  How you like us now?  If you want to revel in the Tigers misery and enjoy some really good reading take a look here.  This is the Memphis message board and there is something for everyone.  There are threads saying they should’ve hired Coach Freeze two years ago, that the university president and A.D. should be fired, that Memphis should drop football altogether. It really is great entertainment.  My wish is that Ole Miss and Memphis part ways with their respective head coaches and that Houston Dale Nutt ends up at Memphis.  Now THAT would be great.  It would hard to decimate a program any further than Memphis is already but if anyone can do it, it’s HDN.

As I made my way back to Jonesboro Saturday night there was a small but steady stream of cars heading in the opposite direction, no doubt they were Memphis fans making their way back from the game.  All I could think about was that I bet the Memphis Fire Department had busy night trying to talk people down and off of the Memphis bridges because they just couldn’t take losing to lowly Arkansas State….Maybe Memphis fans need to look in the mirror and ask themselves why did we hire a guy with zero head coaching or coordinator experience who has no public speaking skills.  I don’t know the answer and I really don’t care but I think it…is…AWESOME.


Start of Six Home Games Saturdary
Categories: ASU Athletics, Football, Rabid Wolf ClubNo Comments »

Well all you football lovers, ASU opens it home season this Saturdary night and I hope that all of you have gotten your tickets (I have no doubt that Flanders has). Lets make this a very, very large Red Wolf gathering.

You vs. Them
Categories: ASU Athletics, FootballNo Comments »

This video, released by the football team today, is straight-up bad ass. This makes me want to go to the football complex, break in to the locker room, put on Demario Davis’s pads, go to the mall, and Goldberg spear someone.

Props to Chris Buttgen, because I am sure he probably had something to do with this.

Meeting Attendance & Offical Drink of the Pack
Categories: Rabid Wolf ClubNo Comments »

I will start with the later since it is the easiest. Being a senoir member (but not as senior as Pimp Daddy, he is older than dirt) I think that being the zealous, passionate and powerful members that we are I think that the only drink for us to sanction worthy of the RWC is straight up Crown Royal over ice. Now I know Pimp Daddy (the sissy wine drinker he is) will shiver at this thought but I think he can do it.

Now as to the attendance issue that The Judge has brought to the fore front. Some of us even the senior ones in the club do still have “real” jobs and do have to from time to time show it if only to collect our check. I am sure that with the advent of schools starting and the upcoming football season attendence will once again be full.

Who knew Flanders was so connected (and emotional)?
