“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”
Not that anyone is supposed to care about this, but I found it interesting: I just saw Steven Threet on the sideline on TV after throwing a TD for ASU, and I noticed he wears a headband or bandana under his helmet with the number "517" on it, apparently showing his pride in being from Adrian, MI where that is the area code. This seems to be a semi-popular thing to do, as I believe Reggie Bush did at USC (among others), only on his eyeblack strips.
Anyway, I would also like to add Threet looks like he has improved a ton since his one-year stint at UM, evidenced by his more than solid numbers and almost leading his Sun Devils to a win at Camp Randall (I'm sure he wanted to strangle their kicker after that game, missed PAT and all). I have to say, good for him. I wish him all the best and hope he does some good things in the PAC-10 this year.

P.S. Watch Tate's post game interview...
P.P.S. Very proud of Tate...
Boy it sure would have been nice to have Minny on the schedule this year. Losing by 11 to NIU, 1-3 going into big ten play, and giving up 223 rushing yards to NIU back on only 15 carries. How much longer does Brewster have up in Minneapolis?
Is there no rule about calling two consecutive time-outs without a play in between?
Did anyone else notice that Alabama called two in a row on 4th-and-1 late in the game against Arkansas today? They lined up to go for it from around mid-field...tried to draw Arkansas offside, called time-out with one second left on the play clock, then came back from the TO only to call another before they ran a play????
Nobody seemed to notice or care. The announcers/officials didn't say anything (that I heard), and the Arkansas players/staff didn't seem to be arguing it? I had to back it up on DVR to make sure I didn't miss a play...but Bama called two time-outs in a row for sure.
I could have sworn there was a rule against this, but could not find anything reliable to confirm or disprove this belief?
Is anyone else as worried as I am about the Inidana game next Saturday? I know our offense is much improved from a year ago and we should be able to have our way with them in that aspect. I'm very worried about their pistol offense and how it combines a power running game and decent passing game. The pistol is something we don't see much of, and Indiana hung up 33 on us last year and we had to come from behind to win it. I know we will certainly get their best shot since they haven't beaten us since 87'. Even though we are 4-0 I view this game as a must win for us heading into the battle with little brother.
Is anyone else concerned ?
