* To those that try to accuse ASU of running up the score, consider -
ASU ran the ball 50 times compared to just 13 passes.
Darby had no receptions.
No receiver caught more than 2 passes.
Ngata and He combined for as many carries as White and Trayanum.

* At the 12:00 mark of the 3rd quarter, Trayanum ran up the middle colliding with the Cat LB. The poor LB dropped like he was in a coma. I know Trayanum is only a freshman, but he should turn pro before he kills somebody at the college level.

* Trayanum, White, Ngata. How will Zak Hill get DJ Taylor on the field?

* The front 7 on defense is solid and only Forman will graduate. But there are at least 3 talented 300 lb bodies available to replace him.

* The 2nd string O-line played most of the 4th quarter and the offense did not miss a beat. Frias, Lovell, Bell, Bray and Henderson played so well that most watchers probably did not realize there was a line change.

* I am a big Jackson He fan. Watching his leg drive on his TD, this walk-on demonstrated everything that is great about football. Number 5 on the RB depth chart. Number 1 with me. Somewhere Cecil Abono is smiling down on Jackson He.

* ASU has lots of young talent coming back. That is encouraging. But USC, Oregon and UCLA have had great recruiting classes as well. Utah and Colorado show promise. If we can not leapfrog some of these teams, it will be the Sun Bowl again next year.

* I am looking at the long participation chart and I wonder whatever happened to Captain America?
