I had mentioned Anderson made the mistake and HAD to keep CTG another year. We are in agreement that CTG needed to go after the year 5. Overall CTG was not a good coach, but Norvell was. After The Holiday Bowl, getting trounced by TT midway in his tenure, we headed south, and our defense fell off the charts. He really never recovered. My position is that, had CTG stayed the last two years, ASU would have been a total disaster. Only the total overhaul of the defense under HE saved us. Also, CTG's lack of recruiting in 2017 is still hurting us! Thankfully our current recruiting staff worked miracles . So we were extremely fortunate that at least in the last two years HE righted the sinking ship and CTG came very close to taking our program down to a very low level. That was my premise for not laying so much praise on him for his first few years. The majority of coaches that followed Erickson would have corrected the same problems. I too hope he learned with 20 million in his pocket, but I see him as a bump in the road with ASU trying to recruit Hawaii. I feel we need one more year of good recruiting before we lose AP. Hope I am wrong and he is making ASU his last stop.
