If we must have sports right now, weird is definitely the way to go

Dude on Arizona is like, “Wait … why is Sun Devil guy all the way over there? Someone should stop him.” Repeat that feeling 10 times last night.

This college football season is an exercise in madness, but it’s continuing to be weirdly historic.

Consider Arizona State’s 70-7 win over Arizona on Friday night, both getting its first win of the year and sending the Wildcats to their first-ever winless season at 0-5.

It’s also the first time since 1969, when the Sun Devils played in the WAC and stomped Colorado State, 79-7, that they put up 70 points in a conference game. It’s the second-most points Arizona has ever allowed in any game, behind only a 75-0 home loss to No. 18 Michigan State in 1949, on a day when 14th-ranked Dartmouth got upset at Princeton. And it was the first 70-7 score ever in a Pac-12 game.

The bright spot for the Wildcats was the opening kickoff, which Lucas Havrisik sent deep into the Arizona State end zone. Just the kick itself was the highlight, because D.J. Taylor decided to return it, and 13 seconds later, he was in the other end zone.

What's your reaction?
