Red Wolves as mascot? Isn't the Washington football team considering that mascot if they do get a nickname?

The Red Wolves upset Kansas State 35-31 on the road last week. Arkansas State was without nine starters due to a combination of injuries and COVID-19 during that victory.

Was Kansas State missing a bunch of starters too or do they just suck?

My first reaction was "Fark rescheduling.  You can't field a team, you forfeit the game."  But this is these student's resume.  Every rep is potentially important for their future.

But maybe do some contact tracing and find out if your players are throwing or attending parties.

Except it's Arkansas State. They might have 1 or two players with any kind of a shot at making an NFL roster. And Central Arkansas... 0 chance. I think AS should have to forfeit and cough up the $ they are supposed to pay CA for playing the game.

Decent point, but if you've gotta have a rule, it should err on the side of not punishing the players for things that might not be their fault.

They were down about 5 starters.

Quarantining people as a result of contact tracing is apparently what put them below position minimums.

We have to get rid of contact tracing so this never happens again!

Screw contract tracing.  These boys want to play some football!

They CAN field a team.  Just not as good of a team as they want.  They have the # of players, just not enough position players.  I thought the football warrior code was "next man up."  If that means your 5th string center plays QB, that's what you do.
