Yes, the Arizona State Sun Devils Football team was supposed to finish ninth in the Pac-10 (which they may do when all's said and done). And its true that a squad comprised of mostly inexperienced underclassmen (like Vontaze Burfict) were going to foul things up at the worst possible times. But ASU fans couldnt have expected the oh-so-close victories that turned into defeats four of the teams six setbacks have come by four or fewer points or the fact that an exciting offense has, at times, been better than a defense that didnt exactly live up to its lofty expectations.
Oh, well. Guess they can give it a go next year. But before that, watch the Devils close out their 2010 home regular season against the UCLA Bruins.
