Arizona State is fresh off a season that saw the Sun Devils compete for a Pac-12 title and emerge as a contender on the West Coast.
And that was thanks largely in part to quarterback Taylor Kelly, who threw for 3,635 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2013.
On Saturday, Kelly showed some signs of rust.
Kelly completed just 7-of-22 passes for 92 yards and was also sacked twice.
What's worse is that Kelly's shoddy showing is coming off the heels of Texas Tech's beatdown of the Sun Devils in the Holiday Bowl last season, a game that saw Kelly throw for just 125 yards and an interception.
But there's plenty of time for the third-year starter to get back into a rhythm, so ASU fans shouldn't exactly push the panic button.
On a positive note, though, the Sun Devils set an attendance record on Saturday for its spring game with 8,456 fans showing up, according to Craig Grialou of Arizona Sports.
That's not a lot of fans compared to some of the elite programs around the country, but it's a step in the right direction as Todd Graham is starting to slowly turn this team into a legitmate Pac-12 team.
