Arizona State wants nothing more than to break the Top 25. This game will give them a good opportunity to get ranked. The most telling sign about this football team is that Head Coach Todd Graham has an enormous amount of confidence in his QB. That’s almost always the sign of great things to come. Taylor Kelly isn’t Geno Smith, but he has completed 67.6% of his passes and he has 9 TDs versus 2 INTs. ASU also uses a unique approach to the running game by mixing carriers between several running backs. This keeps everyone fresh.
Jon Embree, Head Coach of Colorado, has a much different tone when asked about his team. He has pretty much put the blame on his players instead of on himself. This is never a good sign when it comes to quality leadership. Embree might be frustrated, but it’s still the wrong approach. Colorado is also poor against the pass, which plays right into ASU’s hands.
