Sun Devil football roundup

So let’s put this in perspective …

  • ASU hadn’t won in California in fourteen games.
  • ASU hadn’t won in Stanford since 1997.
  • Nine of the top-25 teams lost over the weekend.
  • Colorado – whom ASU beat – went and won against #3 Oklahoma.
  • The Cal/Oregon game was a good one. Cal should rise through the ranks, particularly given losses by Florida and West Virginia and ineptitude by USC.
  • Speaking of which … USC only beat unranked Washington by 3 points. It’s clear that there is no way that they can be considered the #1 team in the country – winning is not enough. But than again, the fanboys who vote will continue to fellate Pete Carroll. Such is the travesty of the system that is in place.

So overall, a 41-3 win against the Cardinal looks good. A win next week against Washington State (2-3, 0-2) will put ASU 6-0 for the first time since the 1996 Pac-10 championship season. The offensive line needs to improve though – too many mistakes, too many sacks allowed.

    Did you catch any of the Auburn vs Florida upset? Including that trick the FL coach tried to pull during the last field goal? War damn eagle!

    I cannot believe that for four years they were completely inept, and as soon as I leave they go 5, probably 6-0. Damn Koetter!
