But if my memory serves correctly, CDR did an outstanding job recruiting and putting an exciting and winning product on the field. He left for the NFL. I do recall being one of many students who wore "ties" to the UCLA game the year after CDR didn't go for the win. During those years we were always in the hunt for the Rose Bowl, and gave the kitties the chance to make their season by knocking us out with an upset.
I also loved CJC, as I graduated the year we won the Rose Bowl, but I have since run into former players who say we ran a dirty program back then, and they didn't seem as proud of being an ASU alum as I am. Side point, I went to Tucson to work at IBM in 87, and had to endure the worst years of ASU sports after CJC left, I had a bet with a work colleague, he gave me 40 points for a kitty vs, Devil BBall game, and we lost by close to 50, I had to wear my ASU jersey to work for a week... and don't even get me started on the streak. Mercifully, I transferred to Charlotte NC in 1989.
Man, I miss the days of taking the opening kick off and on first down ASU tries a bomb down the sideline... hit or miss, it set the tone "we are coming after you."
