Game was nuts. Don't draft any defensive player from those schools. Just Offense.

I don't know about that. ASU has a couple of good defenders that will get draft looks. ASU's two CBs Gump Hayes (senior) and Kareem Orr (soph). Hayes played RB until this year so he is raw, showed a ton of improvement (2 picks last night). He has the speed to play in the NFL, NFL scouts already game to training camp to specifically look at his transition. Kareem Orr I think could have a future as a Safety in the NFL level, 6-foot with great long arms, natural athlete (lead tackler last night). At the LB level DJ Calhoun was a beast out there, may be too undersized but will get some NFL looks. Calhoun has 4.4 speed as a linebacker. OLB Sam was out for the game but another prospect. OLB Crump is a pass rush specialist, I don't know if he will blow up but early signs are pretty good. And along the D-Line DT Smallwood and DT Wicker are prospects.

So yeah our D does suck on paper. But individually there are some good players. S Damarious Randall was drafted by the Packers and has been a stud, but at ASU our pass D with him was horrible (on paper).

It has a lot to do with scheme. ASU plays an extremely high risk blitz scheme with 1-on-1 coverage. Graham's philosophy is that the role of his D is to create turnovers and negative plays, while trusting the offense to pile on points. Sometims its a complete disaster (last year) but when it clicks, it enables our offense to control the game.

He reminds me of a volume shooter. If it's going in he may hit 4 in a row, but when it's going bad and he is out of it he disappears. Not sure if he lacks the intangibles or just having a bad day.

Jesus, OSU is favored by 2 over OU now. OU was favored by 9 when the line first came out (pre Houston loss of course).

Colorado is a much improved team. They aren't the doormat they typically are. They might win 5 or 6 games this year
