He should've been fired the minute all that stuff about the crazy bad recruiting violations came out. His tenure was dead in the water right then. It should not have mattered that we had a supposedly good team going into last season. I said this then and the fact he was allowed to return from last season's meltdown is gross mismanagement.The Herm era really feels like it’s been going on forever. Other than incredibly being 4-0 against the Wildcats, it’s a huge disappointment.
Yuck. I’m sorry. I remember a few of those games from childhood. Although never against an unranked non-conference opponent early in the season.He should've been fired the minute all that stuff about the crazy bad recruiting violations came out.

I predicted we would win maybe 2 games this year. This was number 2. I was there and it was so bad. The vibe was so ugly. EMU smashmouthed us. The lines were embarrassing. We left at halftime to catch the rest at home. We were far from alone. ASU football is ****** for years.
Supposedly, Crow made some announcement of withdrawing support for Herm the Idiot after tonight's game. There was some on the field conference between Herm, Anderson, and Crow immediately after the game. There's a report on it on Az Central but it's behind the paywall so I couldn't read it.
Perhaps it's too much to hope he will be canned by Monday, but we can wish. Herm also allegedly said something at his presser about the loss not being the fault of coaching, but I didn't see it so can't verify. If he did say that, man, is he tone deaf and dumb.
Herm doesn't care... he hasn't really cared since he got hired by his pal. He's not trying to build a coaching career, like a younger up and coming coach would need to - he's just collecting some (big) paychecks on the way to retirement (as are most of his crony former NFL buddy assistants, by the way).
It's all one big grift at the expense of the university. Whatever happens regarding the NCAA investigation, Herm has pocketed a hefty sum for basically destroying the ASU football program... and letting many of his former assistants take the fall for much of that, too.
Even long after both have been fired, Herm and Ray are going to spend years laughing it up about how they heisted a fortune from ASU to feather their own beds.
