Getting a point across in 140 characters or less is always difficult but the media in the press box are masters of abbreviations and shorthanded whit. Here is what they had to say as ASU took on Washington Saturday afternoon.
ASU looked less than stellar early but that would soon change.
First defensive series for #ASU includes an illegal sub. penalty on a third down and a blown coverage on TE for 23 yards. Not a good start.— Vince Marotta (@Vincemarotta) October 19, 2013
Like I said, less than stellar...
Sun Devils didn't appear to have a plan on defense. The Huskies had guys wide open a few times. ASU can't have "beat us" mindset.— Jason Galvin (@Jason_Galvin) October 19, 2013
Zane Gonzalez hits a 26-yard field goal and ASU closes the gap. UW now leads 7-3 with 3:01 to go in the 1st quarter— House of Sparky (@HouseOfSparky) October 19, 2013
As the first quarter winds down, ASU didn't look great but keeping Washington to seven points was somewhat promising.
He could have fair caught a ball that ended up rolling all the way down inside the ASU 10-yard line
What? #ASU— Danny Shapiro (@DsShapi) October 19, 2013
The ball was snapped early on some kind of trick play and the entire offensive line didn't move at all. It didn't turn out as planned.
Bishop Sankey just 16 rushing yards so far for Washington for #ASU ... leads nation averaging almost 150— jeffmetcalfe (@jeffmetcalfe) October 19, 2013
Remember he was the leading per game rusher in the entire country coming into the game.
Ridiculously athletic grab by Grice in the end zone but out of bounds. Under further review.— ASUDevils.com (@ASUDevilscom) October 19, 2013
It was later overturned and gave ASU their first lead of the day.
That catch tho— Jake Peevyhouse (@JakePVhouse22) October 19, 2013
High praise coming from the baseball diamond across the parking lot from SDS.
This is the defense we've been waiting for!!!— Joe Healey (@JoeHealey42) October 19, 2013
Amen Joe, Amen.
Amazing that UW is only down 5. Should be down 14.— UW Dawg Pound (@UWSBN) October 19, 2013
If there was something to gripe about today, it was the Sun Devil's lack of execution in the red zone early in the game.
Points left on the board once again.
Another drive, another opportunity wasted. Zane Gonzalez drains a 36-yard field goal to give #ASU a 15-7 lead.— House of Sparky (@HouseOfSparky) October 19, 2013
Chris Coyle in for the TD! Washington's defense looks gassed and beaten mentally. ASU wants it more right now. 29-7 ASU over Washington— Blaze 1330 AM Sports (@Blaze_Sports) October 19, 2013
This all but put it out of reach as No. 87 barreled into the endzone.
Well...that's one way to put it.
Neuheisel just said UW will come back against ASU. Not sure what game he has been watching...— Tyler Nickel (@TylerNickelASU) October 19, 2013
Go home Rick Neuheisel, you're drunk.
ASU whoopin them dawgs!— Keelan Johnson (@3hree8ight) October 20, 2013
ASU football alumnus is very pleased with the Sun Devils play today.
Nevermind. Price to Smith for a 70-yard TD. Huskies with a huge play to start the second half.— Tyler Lockman (@TylerLockman) October 20, 2013
It was a snap back to reality early in the second half but ASU would soon answer.
ASU is goin HAM. Lets go devils!!— Josh Hubner (@JoshHubner) October 20, 2013
Isn't ham a food? Kids say the darndest things!
TOUCHDOWN DEVILS! ASU answers back, with a Kelly keeper. Great spin move to make it happen.— Brad Denny (@BDenny29) October 20, 2013
36-14 Sun Devils
Wow. This is the most points (46) Washington has allowed all season and we've got a quarter to go.— Craig Morgan (@cmorganfoxaz) October 20, 2013
ASJ= Austin Seferian-Jenkins who was expected to have a bigger impact on the game.
Awesome picture as the 4th quarter gets underway.
That's the best I've seen ASU play a COMPLETE football game in the last 5 years. Hands down.— Josh Hubner (@JoshHubner) October 20, 2013
Possibly Josh, possibly.
Keith Price is being taken to the locker room for X-rays. #Huskies— Alex Gallant (@AlexJGallant) October 20, 2013
The x-rays later came back negative.
S/O our student section though!!! Yall were live tonight!! And the rest of the fans!!— Highway 74 (@Jamil_Lamarr) October 20, 2013
These types of wins can do wonders for a program, especially when the alumni stays engaged.
Then, the impact of this win began to settle in. Countless recruits were in attendance and stood on the Arizona State sidelines throughout the game. Their reactions? They speak for themselves.
It's so surreal to see what the future holds. Had a great time here in Tempe we have something special… http://t.co/1PnNSwFmcP— Manny Wilkins 2⃣ (@Manny_Wilkins11) October 20, 2013
Asu was awesome.. I don't want to leave #Devils— Sam Jones (@samthejonesy) October 20, 2013
Official to ASU?? High possibility! 👌— Kenny Young (@KennyYounggg) October 20, 2013
Arizona state has the best campus on the west coast it's like a town/city— Dj Calhoun (@dj_calhoun) October 20, 2013
Daang.. I Wish I Had Pac-12 Network So I Could Watch Arizona State. #Struggle— Christian Sam (@ShowinStatsSam) October 19, 2013
Keep it going ASU— Connor Humphreys (@C_Humphreys54) October 19, 2013
