Nine days removed from his first Territorial Cup victory, ASU head coach Todd Graham is still feeling like a million bucks.

So much so, that he wasn't afraid for anyone to see just how much he thinks of his football team.

As part of USA TODAY's end of the year coaches poll, every vote cast is open for all eyes to see.

Of the 59 coaches who were polled only two had the Sun Devils among the 25 best teams in college football -- Graham and Arkansas State's Guz Malzahn (a former offensive coordinator under Graham at Tulsa). But ASU's first-year coach didn't just have his team in the Top 25, he ranked them as the No. 20 team in the country.

While ASU did finish on a two-game win streak and finished with seven wins, a five-loss season that included just one win over an FBS team with an above .500 record isn't exactly worthy of a Top 25 vote.

Nonetheless, Graham's unbinding loyalty to his team is admirable at least.
