Ladies and Gents, I don’t post here much. But this past week has made me realize something important. Since Pac-12 day I think we’ve all been wondering what would happen to our rivalry. Who would care about us? Could we really leave the Zoobs in the rear view mirror?
I think at first we all wanted our new rival to be USC. Who wouldn’t want that? But USC and its fans have been too gracious, too kind, and their team has consistently humbled us in the Coliseum. We have work to do there before counting them as a true rival. The conference wanted our rivalry to be with Colorado. But they’ve been a dumpster fire for 9 of our 10 years in the conference. No rivalry feeling there. Other than the Pac-12 year 1 loss I have nothing for them.
But over the past few years we have discovered a new evil rising from the South. These ASU Sun Devils have made it easy to hate them when their wrist-band wearing former coach started stealing signs and acting like a jack ass. They produced Vontaze Burfict - need we say more? Well, yes, there’s more… They injured Huntley last year, putting our season in jeopardy. They stole a QB recruit from us last year as well.
But after this weekend we are official. It is on ASU. Cheap shots on our kid from Arizona on kick offs? Check. Launching helmet first into our GOAT Ute running back? Check. Injuring QB1 again? check. S*** eating grin on your coach’s face the whole time? Check.
I don’t care what he said post game, he’s no idiot and know how to work the media. No kid is gonna dare take that kickoff cheap shot without being told to. Where’s the suspension? Discipline? None, he was just following orders. So this is it. I’ve found a reason to move on. TDS is Arizona State now. They can keep doing their thing down at flight attendant State. I’m looking forward to having a team and a fan base to hate.
