So back to football for a bit. Earlier in the week we set up this weekend's game against ASU. Not a lot of excitement about our football team any longer in the Bruins Nation. Yes there is a flicker of hope. We should (emphasis added) beat up on Koetter's craptacular Sun Devils squad, and use a two game winning streak against mediocre Pac-10 teams to get set for one of the weaker Southern California teams in recent year. We have the talent to finish this season with a 3-0 record. It's a matter of our coaching staff to put it all together and save some face in this already lost season.
We are facing an ASU team this weekend which frankly is kind of a joke. I mean they got blown out by a Mike Riley and Matt Moore. They have some talent on their offense, but our defense should be able to handle them considering the way throttled Quinn and co. up in South Bend. The match up really is going to boil down to whether our underachieving offense will get it done against less than mediocre Sun Devils defense. Oh and there is the thing about coaches from both teams being in trouble.
Anyways I have never really cared much about any of the Arizona schools. Sure the Mildcats had a little run with Lavin thanks to some incompetent Peter Dalis hires in Westwood, but now they will become increasingly irrelevant as Coach Howland is building back our Bruins as dominant power of West Coast hoops.
As for ASU - meeh. That's pretty much how I can sum up my sentiments about that university. Their basketball program is a joke and their football program - well I think these preseason billboards from earlier this year pretty much sums it up:
oh and this one:
They were posted on the Wiz back in June, who had this to say:
If the email does come (not sure if there will be any after this post) any ideas on how we should respond?
