I noticed that Blake Anderson did not mention the penalties, like the one where the guy grabbed the MTSU facemask and pulled his helmet off. ASU gets a lot of those penalties and those type of penalties show lack of discipline and control by the coaching staff. Some personal foul penalties are marginal but the ones that ASU commit are usually blatantly obvious and easy calls for the officials. The turnovers were costly but when you factor in the penalties, you are probably looking at at least another 7 points.

No discipline, too many penalties, bad coaching, I thought they were better than that, but there is always next year.

Middle Tennessee St is no slouch, but yeah, ASU was its own worst enemy. Still, it was overall a good season and there's something to build on, especially noting that the time is right for another program to rise to prominence in Arkansas.

As I'm watching the 1st half wind down I said to myself............" get a touchdown so it only is 14-10 .

Yup, just like the Troy game......... they get the touchdown then throw that advantage away by allowing the opponent a quick touchdown.

When the season started they were rated the 3rd best team in the Sun Belt and that prediction was certainly true.
