Catching up with the GoASU memorable games countdown starting on July 4th
Game 1: Trotman and Blevins earn All-America status
We missed the moment on our entire countdown, but it does not take away from the accomplishments of Austin Trotman and Kyle Blevins. We totally goofed in thinking the countdown was about actual games versus memorable moments. The team and individual performances by track and field and wrestling made this countdown more about moments, compared to one particular athletic event.
We finish the countdown with 18 correct guesses out of 30, however the winner of the challenge correctly guessed 17 moments. Something must have happened in the process of submitting our entry. Maybe we typed in the same moment twice. Maybe our entry was never submitted. Maybe, the tiebreaker went to Jefferson Waugh considering we were already receiving a media guide in the mail with our Yosef donations. So, let us double check our guesses against GoASU.
Our list included:
- Baseball defeating LSU 11-1, winning the series. Big C: 2 GoASU: 11

In the grand scheme of things, whether Jefferson won or we did does not really matter. After double checking with links it appears we may have confused an indoor track moment with an outdoor track moment. GoASU used an outdoor photo for the article on the indoor team winning, while using a cross country photo to explain an outdoor track and field title. Who really knows what happened??
