Excitement In The Air

Maybe its just because the basketball season is starting to come to an end, but I can’t wait for college football!  I’ve never been so excited for a season to start up.  This year has so much promise and yet plenty of uncertainty. 

It also might have something to do with getting season tickets with a group of friends.  The tailgate party can’t start soon enough! 

Thirdly, I can’t wait to see the home opener against NAU.  I love watching the Devils beat up on weaker opponents.  Plus, that gets us a week closer to the match-up against #1 Georgia.  I already feel the tension rising. 

Anyone else jacked up for football?

Let Me Know if You Need Help Recruiting

There are some big time names circulating around the Sun Devils in both Basketball and Football.  

In basketball…Renardo Sidney, the #1 PF in the nation for the class of 2009,  Jeremy Tyler, a five star center prospect for the class of 2010

In football…Corey Adams and Devon Kennard are two highly regarded defensive linemen from in-town, Justin Chaisson is another top defensive lineman from Nevada

Recruiting seems simple to me…bring them to campus…how can they say no?

Best Devils Memory

If you had to pick out your greatest Sun Devil athletics memory, what would it be?

For me, I wasn’t around for the Frank Kush or Ned Wulk eras, so I can’t go back as far as some might. 

I grew up watching the likes of Mario Bennett, Steven Smith, Ron Riley, and Jeremy Veal, but nothing will top watching Eddie House go off for 61 against Cal.  I don’t think he could miss that game.  That was the best single performance I have seen.

My close, second best, memory would have to be Mario Bennett against U of A getting a steal and going in for the reverse dunk.  I think it was Dick Vitale that yelled out, “What did he have in his breakfast cereal?”
