Well, three days after the Wildcats couldn't get the defensive stops to beat USC at home, the Sun Devils managed to rule out the possibility of a winless Pac-10 season by beating the Trojans in Tempe. Despite the fact that Herb Sendek's North Carolina State Wolfpack team knocked my Cal Bears out of the NCAA tournament last year, I still have a soft spot for him. He always seems winningly beleagured, like a college version of Jeff Van Gundy. It's nice for him to finally get a meaningful win in his new job at ASU. What will the Arizona faithful say if the Sun Devils make it two in a row next week?
