Last year was a tough year for Sun Devil fans. So many hard fought and close games, each lost in frustrating fashion: botched extra point, an unfair penalty at a critical moment, a missed field goal, a shoestring tackle inches short of the goal line. So close.
Ending the season with two wins, including a dramatic double overtime win over Arizona that finally saw the Devils win the close one, however, sparked some momentum. Along with a host of returning starters, a new logo and uniforms, and some high media expectations, the Sun Devils finally feel like they may have some momentum heading into the 2011 campaign.
