Goodbye, Rudy, We (Really) Knew Thee

OK, I'll come out and say it.  I'm gonna miss Rudy Carpenter.

 

Sure, he didn't lead us to the top, he was on the ground more often than he was on his feet, he stole soda and wore pink, got into fights at community basketball games, and is generally a bit of an asshole, but I'm gonna miss him.

 

To quote Terrell Owens, "He's my quarterback."

 

He became the starter at the same time I became a fan, four long years ago.

 

We've been through the ups and downs together (more of the latter than the former, it seems) and it's gonna be hard to see anyone else under center come next September. 

 

I decided when I became a Sun Devils fan that whatever team Rudy was drafted to, I would root for (I generally don't like the NFL, and I don't have a favorite team) but it seems now that because of this season, I may not be finding a new, favorite, Rudified team.

 

He may be one of the most polarizing players in ASU history, and I know many Sun Devils don't like him his hotheadedness, but dammit, I'm gonna miss him.
