    Brandon Ruiz stats at ASU for comparison:

    2017: 49/50 XP 19/27 FG
    2018: 50/50 XP 18/22 FG

    Yeah, I saw it. Still have to go with the kicker you have. We will see how Zendejas kicks the rest of the season.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I am dancing with the one I brought to the dance. I was mostly trying to show that for the strength of his leg it isn't as though Ruiz was automatic.

    Zendejas can win games for the Devils too.

    Didn't Zendejas miss a FG in the Colorado game? He could have been the difference in losing a game already.

    Yes. I believe it was something like 50 yards or a tad short of that. No certainty Ruiz makes that either.

    The Devils defense could have made a difference as well.

    I think Zendejas is going to be a great kicker for us long term, he has got it in his DNA for crying out loud.

    But losing Brandon Ruiz, to injury for this year, then transferring out next sucks for ASU. He was top notch, was committed to Alabama before coming to ASU. Much better range than you'd ordinarily expect in a college kicker and good accuracy. We'll never know what went down behind the scenes here, but there must have been some type of conflict. Perhaps no promise the job would be his again upon return. Perhaps they told him he'd have to compete with Zendejas, who knows. I just hope he transfers outside the PAC12.

    I see the game tomorrow starts at 12:30 p.m. It is on the PAC 12 Networks so I hope to find a stream of the game somewhere.

    It will likely be a high scoring affair.

    Enough talking about a pinche kicker, especially one that is throwing a fit about the other walk on getting a scholarship.

    Devils 38

    No idea what to expect here but that’s the P12 this year.

    I am feeling an ASU victory in another close game that goes right down to the end.

    ASU is now a 1 point dog at home.

    It's all on ASU's defense. If they can keep WSU under 24 points, we should be able to win.

    I am a bit concerned about our banged up secondary, one guy playing with his hand in a splint, another coming off a dislocated elbow, playing with it wrapped. Open field tackling in space is going to be huge today and those injuries don't help.

    Hoping for big days by Daniels and Eno.

    If ASU holds them under 24, I think they win going away. I think the magic number is under 30. If the Cougars get over 30 it's a toss up. I just don't think that highly is WSU this year

    I'm hoping the Devils defense is able to play better than they did against Colorado.

    They need some stops or at least slow the Cougars down.

    Go Sun Devils!

    Not a good start
