What Will It Take to Make Arkansas St. the New Boise St.?


Our friends at ArkSt.com have put together an analysis comparing where the Arkansas State University Red Wolves stand now and what will be required to transform the athletic program into the Boise St. of the South.

It’s an interesting read we encourage you to check out here. The analysis begins:

For the past 13 months Arkansas State fans have heard the phrase “next Boise” or “Boise of the South” repeatedly.

Athletic director Terry Mohajir set out his vision at the recent Little Rock press conference. Going to the BCS and winning. Being in the mix to contend for the national title.

Six schools have “busted” the BCS. Boise State has done it twice, TCU twice, and Utah twice. Hawaii and Northern Illinois once each. The jury is out on Northern Illinois but Hawaii was a “one hit wonder.” Utah and TCU have parlayed their success into membership in the Pac-12 and Big XII.

What does it take to be a “Boise” rather than a “Hawaii”?
