100 Day Sun Devil Football Countdown to Kickoff, #1: Because it's Sun Devil Football Season

Since May 22, we've gone through 99 reasons to love Sun Devil football. Ninety nine stories of tradition, epic plays, Herculean performances and unforgettable heroes. 99 tales of days gone by, shaping our past while defining our future. From Pat Tillman to Brock Osweiler, from beating U of A to winning the Rose Bowl, all of this matters because we're all cut from the same maroon and gold cloth. We're all Sun Devils.

Tomorrow, the legend continues. We will put on our gold and we will cheer loudly and passionately for the student-athletes that wear our uniform. They represent us and our alma mater on the field and fill us with pride.

It isn't a stretch to say that our destinies are intertwined -- as the season progresses, our collective happiness rises and falls with every win and loss. The team mirrors the fans, and vice versa. Their joys and sorrows are ours. Together, we are one.

Tomorrow, something special starts anew. The Sun Devils take the field, and as the first fireworks of the 2012 season shoot into the sky, the hope of thousands of diehard fans that would do anything for Arizona State also rises to its apex.

We're Devils for life. Nothing can ever take that away from us. GO DEVILS.
