Pat Murphy's Law

Hey, Pat Murphy. It’s time to stop worrying. Really, man. Unless your ASU Baseball squad drops its remaining seven games (which ain’t gonna happen), your team is officially, yet again, one of the elite teams in college baseball this season.

If you listen to the Sun Devils’ never-satisfied head coach during post-game interviews, you’d think his players were the bottom-feeders of college baseball or the Oregon Ducks, who don’t even field a Division I baseball team. However, the Devils’ win-loss record and Top 5 ranking – which basically guarantees them a postseason regional at home – is proof that the team is right on track. So, Murph, it’s okay to relax, k?
