Navy Fans Paint Arizona State A Mountain

Ranking near the top of college football in sacks made, Arizona State can defend on the field. One place the Sun Devils don’t defend well, though, is A Mountain. The backdrop to Sun Devil Stadium features a rock formation A that, for the second time this season, was painted an opponent’s color.

It didn’t take a Seal Team Six effort from Navy fans to turn the A navy-and-gold. The Mid supporters followed the lead of Oregon fans who took the Go Green movement in a different direction. Kudos to the Navy crowd, who one-upped the Duck faithful. The addition of “GO NAVY” to the middle of the A takes it to another level.

An ominous sign for the Sun Devils? ASU is a sizable favorite in Saturday’s Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, but was thoroughly shellacked after Oregon took over A Mountain.

My Arizona Desert Swarm cohort Kevin Zimmerman unearthed a public ASU Google document, detailing plans to protect the A on the eve of the ASU-UA rivalry game last month. If the Sun Devils really want to keep trespassers from getting over on their symbol, perhaps they should employ All-American Will Sutton to protect it.
