ASU Football Roundup

The Sun Devils (9-2) dropped to thirteenth in the BCS after their loss to USC Thursday night. No surprises there. Had the second half been closer a higher ranking would have been possible. But no point dwelling in the past as a number of possible scenarios are possible for the future:

  • A trip to the Rose Bowl is still possible if we beat U of A and UCLA surprises everyone by defeating USC.
  • A Fiesta Bowl appearance is possible if we win and Missouri beats Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game.
  • If we win and Oklahoma wins, we’re looking at the Holiday Bowl.
  • Worst case scenario appears to be the Sun Bowl.

    Holiday Bowl…

    We’re in a drought, we’ve had major fires requiring the use of Qualcomm for evacuation, and our pro football team has been about as consistent as a creationist on speciation. So expected torrential rains and one hell of a sloppy fun game with tons of scoring if you do come here. That’s just the way things turn out around here.

    ASU seems to be the beneficiary of the mediocrity (parity) of major CFB. There are no unbeaten teams that have played a schedule of consequence and several top-notch 2 loss teams (e.g. LSU)

    As it turns out timing is everything, if ASU had scheduled Oregon a bit later they might well have the Rose Bowl locked up.
