The “generational talent” who was being promoted as a Heisman candidate was 11/25 for 145 yds. Zero TDs and 2 INTs. QBR was 43. Rising’s QBR vs Stanford, for comparison, was 64 (it wasn’t his best game, I think we can all agree). Rising’s QBR vs USC was 97.7. Rising did it back when SC still had something to play for. ASU hosted USC, while our guys played in LA.
Just think, if Daniels’ mom didn’t take the payola JD would have been a UTE. And Rising? He may have been a Sun Devil.
It really is incredible how things just work out.
If you want to make God laugh just tell him your plans.
