Video: Todd Graham on ASU loss to Cal

Arizona State coach Todd Graham spoke with reporters following Arizona State's 48-46 loss to Cal Saturday in Berkeley.

Arizona State had no answer for quarterback Jared Goff and Cal in the second half of its regular-season ending 48-46 loss to Cal. The Sun Devils didn't sack Goff once in the game despite a relentless blitzing approach that ASU coach Todd Graham defended after it was over. 

"It has nothing to do with that," Graham said of ASU's defensive approach. "We would get beat 100 to nothing if we didn't pressure. Anybody that knows anything about football knows it can be pretty challenging, I mean, we've lost both our starting free safety and our Bandit safety and we've got some guys playing brand new positions. We've got one free safety that's never played there. 

"That's who we are and what we're about is pressure. That's just the way it is, the way it's going to be, as long as I'm the head coach, that's what it's going to be. If you want somebody not to blitz, get somebody else. Because there's no doubt in my mind that what we do is the best thing we can do for our guys."
