It’s hard to find a lot of substance on Arizona State this week. Whether that’s due to the Sun Devils crapping the bed against UNLV last Saturday or just the different level of coverage outside the South is hard to say. But anyway, here are a few nuggets I’ve managed to dig up.
- Sounds like Erickson and Carpenter intend to get back to throwing the ball more this week, not so much because of what they might have seen in the Georgia-South Carolina game, but as a result of how the UNLV game turned out.
- ASU has been battling depth and injury problems, particularly at linebacker, as CFN notes in its game prediction. But the Sun Devils get back two defensive players from suspension this week and are moving several players around in their linebacking corps as a result.
- I don’t want to presume to tell Mike Bobo how to do his job, but if you look at the ASU split stats on rushing defense, it’s pretty obvious what he ought to be doing in the second half with Knowshon Moreno.
