It appears that this year's recruiting will be a huge bust. We have the worst recruiting results so far in the conference. It's like owning the worst house in a bad neighborhood. (See link.)
The cheating scandal should never have happened and it's ruined virtually all the progress made over the past few years. Probably 50-50 at best that this staff and the AD remains. Furthermore, the investigation may continue to drag on beyond the Feb. signing period. If HE goes it will be tough finding a good replacement with all the coaching vacancies. If he stays the pall remains because he's lost many of the fans' confidence and hasn't really produced the results that were promised. He'll remain on the hot seat. This year's potential recruiting disaster only makes matters worse going forward. We are losing many very good seniors this year.
The other scary part is how many players we could lose to the portal after the season is over. I'm still disgusted by this and believe this pall has had a negative influence on this season's results, ruining our chances for what should have been a great opportunity to go to the Rose Bowl and win.
The word marplot comes to mind when thinking of this cheating scandal. They did this to themselves. It's like a blabbermouth salesman taking his or her self out of a sale by saying too much. Hard to believe this happened as it seems so out of character with Herm. AP had so much potential and many of us were thinking he would eventually become the next ASU HC and help bring some stability to a long-time instability-plagued program.
Such a shame. At least we'll be sending a few more players to the NFL than usual. Wish I could be more optimistic but I don't see anything that I can hand my hat on.
