Spring 2011 - Key Questions

Arizona State

 
What's happening this spring season? Several Scout publishers provide their insider info on the key questions that matter to the real world of college football. Scroll down for the links to all the spring questions.

Q: With so much returning talent and so many returning starters, what does Arizona State most need to do to finally get the Dennis Erickson era going? What’s the confidence level like with so many veterans coming back?


From Hod Rabino, DevilsDigest.com … In 2010 the Sun Devils were on the cusp of winning close games so many times, but kept coming up short. Both the offense and defense had more than a few flashes to prove that the talent level is good enough to beat anyone in the league.

Mental mistakes such as penalties and turnovers is what shot ASU in the foot week in and week out and prevented several close games from turning out on the right side. This, without a doubt, will be the number one factor in determining whether Dennis Erickson can truly turn around this program or not.

Very few teams in the Pac-12, let alone the nation, can claim the same level of experience ASU has coming into the 2011 season. 19 returning starters and over 50 upperclassmen should be a sure recipe for success, and the confidence level is high with a strong belief that this vast level of experience will work in the Sun Devils’ favor and the results will follow.

I’d be shocked if this isn’t a well-oiled machine.
