Love Bites, Stanford Kisses ASU Goodbye

A 1pm Arizona State football game, what a novel idea. That was my highlight of the day!
Saturdays 34-24 loss at Stanford was pretty much the same script from the first four weeks. Manny Wilkins showed guts and courage, N’Keal Harry is a playmaker(though they didn’t take enough shots too him in the second half) There are some fine individual players on the Sun Devil roster. All of that sounds good, HOWEVER….they lost again. 2-3 five games in…
Sooooo, let’s get to Bryce Love. I buried the lead intentionally because the easy way out of THIS loss, is to put up his stats and call it a day.
He ran over,through,around,sideways,leftways,rightways,circles,missed tackles,broken tackles on Arizona State for 301 yards and 3 scores. He AVERAGED 12.0 yards per carry against the Sun Devils. ASU knew all week that Love was going to be handed the ball, and they couldn’t stop him. They got whipped.
San Diego State RB Rashaad Penny had 353 all-purpose yards against ASU earlier this season and now Love plays the role of wrecking ball, clearing 300 on the ground. I am a Heisman Trophy voter and can comfortably say I’ve now witnessed two players cut their resume tape at the expense of the 2017 Sun Devils.
A 2-3 record with Washington, Utah, and USC coming up after next weeks bye. No such thing as moral victories when your five games into the season with a losing record. Sports doesn’t work that way. Coaches know this too…
