    What has Anderson done to cause you to not trust him up to this point??

    Had Sumlin come here and had success, how long do you believe he would’ve stayed?? And what would be left in his wake?

    Clearly you are sold on Anderson hiring Edwards. They will have to earn my confidence.

    I am disappointed in the baseball program thus far.

    It would have been interesting to see all the coaching options. Maybe more information will be forthcoming.

    I guess we'll have to settle this on the field gentleman.

    I am "sold" on Ray Anderson who, thus far has proven to be a very effective administrator, talent evaluator and leader. He has yet to show me why I shouldn't trust him...
    As for the baseball program - what did Anderson inherit? I think he's due some time to right that ship...

    And sure, it might've been "interesting" to see what other coaching options were out there... But really now, aside from Sumlin, do you really believe there would've been any other brand names out there that would consider ASU?? If so, name one. If you can be honest with yourself and about the program, you would admit that there weren't any and the only reason Sumlin would've been considering ASU is because there wasn't anything left for him...

    As I have consistently stated, if/when Anderson proves that he isn't worthy of my trust in him, my tune will change. But I operate on the basis of "innocence until proven guilty..." Anderson hasn't been proven guilty in my eyes and I'm hopeful that this very brave and bold move will only strengthen my trust in him...

    I hope Herm is successful for you all. I've always liked the guy. Good luck!

    I went to You Tube to watch video on Herm Edwards. Most of what I saw was righteous, angry rants. Even his introductory press conference at ASU was more of the same.

    Personally I tune out this type of personality.

    I guess had to many fire and brimstone preachers in my childhood. ;)

    Hopefully college kids will buy into this approach.

    Let's agree to disagree on this one.

    The roughly $12.3 million buyout Arizona State owes fired football coach Todd Graham is nearly equivalent to combined pay of all assistant coaches in the Sun Belt Conference

    I think Edwards is the stop gap for either Napier or once they have enough money to get a bigger name if Napier bolts.
    I wonder why other big time programs passed on Sumlin as well? TEN is on their 3rd option and Sumlin wasn’t one of their first 2. Maybe there is something we don’t know.

    This is my guess if he was in fact assembling a staff for the ASU job.

    Man do i think you have that backwards. We are not determining guilt here. We are determining if he’s worthy of our trust. Trust is a reward. You EARB trust. The worst companies in the world are those that blindly trust until someone fails. The best companies work with those who earn their trust.

    So I ask again, what has Anderson done thus far to not have earned your trust?

    Actually Herm's record is worse than the great Rich Kotite! Ugh :lol:
    Terrible hire by the Devils! Should've kept my good buddy Todd instead of this hire. This is comical
