Hey there. It's 6 AM in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Have some trouble sleeping? So did we -- with ASU's season only 13 hours away, there's simply no time for shut eye.

The staff at House of Sparky toiled away all summer, bringing you 100 of the biggest reasons to love the Sun Devils. We covered an incredible array of subjects, and we're insanely proud of the final result. In case you missed any (or all 100) entries from the Sun Devil Countdown to Kickoff, here they are in all their glory.

While we could never constrain the entirety of ASU football history into 100 stories, we think it is a great representation of our collective fandom. What do you think?
