The recruiting trip Arizona State coach Todd Graham and his son, Arizona State running backs coach Bo Graham, took on Saturday will likely be one they'll never forget.

The small plane the Grahams were on lost cabin pressure and fell from 35,000 to 10,000 feet before finally stabilizing.

“I woke up and the pilots were putting on their (oxygen) masks," Todd Graham told Doug Haller. "The plane started shaking. Then the plane started diving.

"I'm not lying. I thought this might have been it. Bo looked like he was in shock.”

After the plane stabilized it made an emergency landing in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Once there the Grahams waited for another plane before heading to Texas to continue their recruiting trip.

Personally I might have curled up in a fetal position and laid down for a few days first.

Both coaches were at Arizona State's practice on Sunday.
