Excited? Not quite... But I am more than interested and cautiously optimistic!
The millenials won't listen to Hermy. A neighbor of mine has a child working in the AD's office. I had to email YouTube links of Herm's famous rants, because half the office had never heard of the guy.
These recruits are younger than Millennials, so even worse...lol
I like the sound of the Sunday practice!
Sounds good to me! Hopefully it results in some W's!
Some people would say most of Herm's NFL teams were merely practicing on Sundays. These kind of shenanigans might work at Abalama, because Nick is busy winning that ugly-ass trophy every year. But it ain't gonna work at a mid-level Pac-12 school.
I don't see this working out. Reference my earlier post about millenials. I can see this scenario play out more than once:
HS phenom: "Hey 4-star, how it been so far as ASU? Once of their assistants called me last week."
4-star: "Well, they told me I was gonna start at WR since their other guys left. Now this new coach tells me I might not have a starting job."
HS Phenom: "Wow, that sucks. They told me the same thing."
4-star: "Yeah. Now I gotta schlep it out there on Sunday, when I should be in the library, and compete against some dude who's been through more jucos than I can count."
HS phenom: "And this guy named 'Ray A' called me and said that me coming to ASU would really help fill up the athletic department's bank account."
4-star: "Sounds like him. Go to UCLA instead. They offer courses in surfing."
I don't know anything about it, and the team may like it, but to me, it just sounds like another day of practice (on an off day?). I don't know. We will see.
Offensive lineman Roy Hemsley from USC will transfer to the Sun Devils. He should be eligible this coming season. He should provide some help.
Need all the help we can get on the O-Line.
For those who want to hear about ASU President Michael Crow's viewpoint regarding the hire of Herm Edwards and ASU sports.
There is much more at the link below.

ASU adds Kevin Mawae as offensive analyst.
I LOVE this!!!
Herm Edwards sends harsh message: ASU football may cut scholarship players
“I told some guys who continue to stay in the training room, you’ve got no tape. I can’t grade you if you’re not on tape. All of a sudden, guys got well. It’s amazing. Sometimes these players think with 85 scholarships, I’m good. You’re not good. You’ve earned a scholarship because of your ability to be a student-athlete. It’s a combination of both. When you don’t meet that standard, there’s consequences. Consequences are sometimes tough. If I don’t apply those consequences, then I’m not doing my job as head coach.”
I'm glad you posted this. I was quite sure what to make of it.
Players do change teams but I was wondering if this type of language is a bit over-the-top... about losing scholarships as a consequence.
Frank Kush used to run players off at Camp Tontozona with tough practices but I think this might be something different.
I guess as long as players think they are going to the NFL... Herm can get away with it??
However, most players will never play in the NFL.
