Historically, ASU teams have been young because they have very few seniors. Their best players get drafted after their junior year.
I don't ever remember Brock or Murphy using the youth excuse. In fact I think there would have been consequences for anyone using that as an excuse.
Youth is, and has been the most widely used excuse by Tracy during his tenure. If the coach starts using the youth excuse it permeates the program. All of the press now uses the youth line with ASU in print, interviews and during the games. How many times during the weekend did you hear the announcers start with "...well this is a young team who has been impacted by injuries...". This excuse is so deeply entrenched in our program that the team (players and coaches) all begin to believe this is their reason for losing instead of adopting a philosophy that say we simply will not lose.
I am tired of this acceptance of failure and refuse to see any games in person until the catching change is made. Hoping that is today.
Go Sun Devils!
