From an earlier post of mine -
Herm Edwards has exceeded my expectation. He has assembled a dynamite staff. Recruiting is much more organized and focused on signing prototype athletes for most positions. And I hope that this year demonstrates a payoff. But his record to date is 17-13 and 11-11 in conference. The ASU 20 year performance is 134-110 and 84-86 in conference. Herm's 56.6% and 50% win percentages are not significantly different than the 20 year 55% and 49% results.

College football is an arms race. Oregon has averaged signing 15 4-star recruits per class since Cristobal arrived. USC signed 15 4/5-star players last year. Washington consistently recruits well. ASU needs to start winning the kitchen table battles for these blue chip players if it expects to consistently win the field battles. This staff seems capable of making that jump. Letís hope that ASU is willing to pay to keep the staff together.
