    Sun Bowl invite. I like it. Another set of practices in what should be the same systems. Given my expectations at the beginning of the season this is a nice ending

    I'm glad the Sun Devils got the bowl invite especially since they beat Arizona. I might have less enthusiastic if they had finished .500. Playing a team like North Carolina State from a different part of the country should be interesting.

    Does anyone know why this was a bowl ASU wanted? I'm guessing it has something to do with the payout.

    Is there some sort of conference tie in and I don't think the Devils had much input?

    I like the opponent. It will be a good challenge for the team. Heading into their game with Notre Dame, NC State was ranked high and playing solid football.

    I agree. Playing North Carolina State is a perk.

    I think you are on target.

    I expect the team to put out a solid effort. I think they want to send Graham out a winner and they will be trying to show Herm what they are made of.
