Prep for the 2022 season starts this week at Spring practices which is underway.

Lots of new faces and competition.

Will be interesting to see if anyone emerges in the quarterback battle, and nice to see eliminating the penalties and turnovers are on their radar
“It’s only the first day obviously and you have to just see who can manage the offense,” he added. “One key is to not turn the ball over. … For the quarterback, it’s who can run the offense? How do you move the offense? It’s going to be fun to watch. We have some guys with some talent and we’ll just let it play out, see where it’s at.”

Edwards said Arizona State’s Achillies heel last year was turnovers and “non-competitive fouls,” which are penalties called when the ball isn’t in play — meaning false starts, offsides, encroachment, etc.

Outside opening weekend, no Thursday or Friday games. Just as I was starting to prefer them.

New DC Donnie Henderson answers questions after Spring practice. Good guy that is trying to ensure continuity in the system for the players. Sounds like we have a solid group of returning players on D though I'm a bit concerned about the undersized corners.

Also, big contrast in style with AP who was passionate, fired up, and animated. Henderson is more reserved and calm and sounds like he wants the players to be as well

The D Line is supposed to be our strength next year. If you haven't heard Coach Rodriguez before, check out his recent remarks. He is one fired up dude that believes in what they are doing with that group

I expect an abject disaster
Define that…and you won’t be held to it since things have to flesh out the rest of spring and summer. What are your thoughts as of today?

Personally, I feel like I can find 5 wins that should be pretty set and can possibly find another 1, maybe 2 although things need to be finalized in some areas.

I do think they can miss a bowl this year which will be disappointing to say the least. I would be shocked if they somehow get to 8 wins

I don't know, some of these portal transfers to ASU look like pretty solid players. There is very positive atmosphere in Spring practice from what I can tell on the youtube videos. The coaching has been upgraded and the players are getting after it.

The big unknown is how the QB situation is going to play out. Haven't really heard much on that coming out of Spring practice. I guess they are keeping it close to the vest. We probably won't hear anything definite until Tontozona.

The D will be tough, but our corners are pretty undersized as I recall. That can be a big disadvantage.

I think their offense is going to be dismal. I don’t know where the skill position talent exists other than ngata. And uncertainty at QB rarely ends up a pleasant surprise for ASU. And I think the defense will be in disarray with new coaching and losing some talent.

I also think everyone knows herm era is just waiting to be put outta its misery.

I think they win 4 games. One will be an unexpected win and one will be a god awful unexpected loss. And they’ll get absolutely throttled by the good teams they play.
