Your points are all valid and I understand where you are coming from. I was hoping that our best hope now is to build on the good. Thank you for hanging in there for 35 years and especially now, I believe there are more than one Sparky which could explain the inconsistency that you point out.
There does seem to be no negative about Herb in the media. It is strange because the poor recruiting and poor play are glaring now. I really do not know the talent depth this team has because they are not being coached up and seem timid and disorganized. You may be right but with the lack of an aggressive game plan to build player confidence I just do not know.
Optimistically I am sure more fans will support the team if a winning confident group could produce victories. However, it is becoming more and more obvious that the current coaching arrangement is not the answer. Do not sell the AD short. He wants strong ASU teams across the board. A half filled Wells Fargo is embarrassing for a sport that traditionally is the 2nd largest money producer.

: I am a season ticket holder (35+years) and I have seen so many friends drop their seats over the years that I hardly know anyone at the games any more.
: However, I totally agree with you on 1-3. You are spot on.
: As to Sparky, I find him to be a little iffy. Sometimes he does a nice job of working the crown and sometimes he never comes any where near me. And, I am easy to find.
: As too #5 I am with you on support, but I do not think that we have good players. For my money, Shaq should be scoring 20 points a game and Goodman should be in double-doubles each game. The rest of the players are benchwarmers on good teams. Sorry, I really like our players, but the talent level is sorely lacking.
: I know the fans don't care much because so few show up. In fact, this team is so boring that I don't blame them if they are looking for an exciting experience ('cause it ain't at ASU games). What surprises me is that the newspapers and the print media are so obviously avoiding any criticism of this mess.
: The AD and the President and the State Board of Regents are all obviously aware of something that escapes me because they love Herb while this program is continually a very poor representative of ASU athletics.
: : Well, we have had a lot of bad and ugly. Let me add the good.
: : 1. The student section. The spirit of these kids got me through the game last night. Thanks to all the students who stayed strong.
: : 2. The curtain of distraction is a joy to watch and it does work. Utes did not miss a free throw in the first half but missed quite a few when confronted with the curtain
: : 3. The spirit squad performs excellently while being always positive.
: : 4. Sparky is great as he always greets and intermingles with the fans.
: : 5. There are still some season tickets fans of which I am one who will always support our players. It is not their fault if they can not be coached to play with total confidence and a solid structured game plan.
: : Go Sun Devils
