    These past two have have been brutal to watch.

    Our offensive line is offensive.

    Defense can't penetrate or tackle.

    We can't cover a running back wheel route. We are lucky that the quarterbacks these last two games couldn't connect on those router or else we possibly would have had a struggle to win either game. Kent State basically blew two touchdowns when their running backs weren't able to catch the passes on those routes.

    It's going to be a long year.

    Yeah real bad football team. I think 4 more wins would be optimistic.

    Didn't get to watch the game, but when I saw the box score in the 3rd quarter I was shocked. Asu needs a miracle in order to have at least a .500 record. These next few weeks are going to be very telling...hopefully Herm can pull some magic to get this team on track.

    ASU had only 4 penalties but all were personal fouls.

    Herm may be taking it slow with Daniels as he is a freshman but some quick slants over the middle would slow down that pass rush and probably help the running game.

    I hope you are right but that doesn't explain the abomination that is the OL.

    The offensive line is no doubt a large problem even more so if a couple of injured players on the line do not play against Michigan State.

    Did I see that they are now ranked top 20? Not sure if I saw that right.

    Not sure what I saw, but that is not correct. Big mistake on my part. Sorry, guys.

    I share a lot of the disappointment already expressed, but am not ready to throw in the towel on the HE program.

    The OL was supposed to be stellar this year, but had 2 big losses before the season. They are still trying to adjust to that, and had 2 more injuries Friday night, hopefully not serious. That's why Eno is not getting loose, Daniels is getting pressure, and we had some bad snaps, one of which screwed up a scoring opp. They need to make OL depth a key priority in recruiting going forward.

    Unfortunate to have one TD called back due to stupid penalty, another on a fumble call where it looked like our guy was already across the goal line.

    Anyway, the D looks strong and they better be this year.

    Onward and upward.

    Agree with all that... Mich St isn’t great by any means... but they are immensely more talented across both sides of the ball. Their QB, a Phoenix Pinnacle High grad and 5th year senior, isn’t great but is smart.
    The game has the potential to get outta hand given our oline issues. Our only chance is our defense...

    What do you think of Daniels' play so far?

    Encouraging so far. He hasn't done anything otherworldly yet but I didn't expect him to either. I know little about Yellen but I believe in Daniels more that Sterling-Cole.
