I think he is doing a good job so far.He needs to make Sun Devil Stadium a place that is comfortable to watch a game in Sept. for 73,000 fans when the daytime high is 100 degrees, and kick off is still around 95. Then insure that Graham continues to 1-Compete for PAC12 Championships and bowl births, and 2-Do whatever it takes to mix in some blue chip players in the next few recruiting cycles. I love our team, and all the JC guys are really great additions especially guys like M. Grice, J. Strong and the DEs coming in, but the HS recruiting needs to improve across the board the next few years. We need to break the cycle of local kids leaving. That started with DJ Foster. Winning cures all in college football, and I think our coach is a winner, and will continue to build the program. Schedule is B_R_U_T_A_L this year, but even if we lose some of those games like ND or Wisconsin it should improve recruiting just because we are playing national powers. Fact is...ASU is running with the Big Dogs! I wish Herb could understand that.SP also needs to insist that Herb starts making the NCAA tournament. 20 wins is nice and all but everyone knows that about 6-8 of those are from really weak scheduling. We finished tied for 6th wth about four other teams in his 7th year, and the average conference finish in his tennure is 7th -or lower half. We've only been to ONE NCAA tournament in James Harden's second year. It's not the University, location, fans, parking, whimsical kids these days who transfer, it's the head coach, and staff he has that recruits and develops the kids. It needs to improve significantly, yesterday. If he does not fire Herb after next season without a NCAAT appearance AND another blue chip recuit to replace Jahii Carson, Steve P. will lose a lot of luster in my eyes...the progress made in FB will be soured by the lack of change in the BB program.Baseball needs another National Title. It's over due. Not sure SP has a lot of say in it though. That always has been a powerhouse program, and allways will be. It's more of a numbers game and getting the breaks in the College World Series. Mixing it up with South Carolina, Texas, Auburn, Fullerton, USC, and all the rest...it's a heck of a thing to accomplish. But, again, it's over due.

selling off the Karsten course which their family donated millions for and Pete Dye designed is a HUGE mistake, especially just so it can be used for another cheesy shopping center.
It would be one thing if this land was being used for educational purposes that benefited ASU students, but most if it isn't. Just another shady AZ real estate deal.
I doubt the MLS is going to play in that summer heat in Tempewho ever thinks Herb hoops is going to ranked next year needs to put down the bottle, they suck.

Muni and papago are close to each other too. At WFA he wants new seats to replace the current red ones that are old and tight and wants new lighting and some more videoboards. Also upgrades to the concourse & consession area. Also talked about new SDS being able to host MLS soccer team a direct jab at UOPS which wants soccer. He is a good guy for facilities stuff.------------------------------------------------ the42yardline wrote:There is an article in the republic today about Patterson.
