ESPN is really ripping Graham.

http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/7355451/arizona-state-sun-devils-coach-todd-graham-new-president-liar-club

That guy has no class at all.

Other than Love, Crow, and Patterson, I have yet to see or hear anything positive about Todd Graham.  He is being dissed by EVERYONE.

I have heard lots of good things about him.. A Lb that played for him that is now on the Rams says he is one hell of a coach..  Most people are not bashing his coaching just how he left.  Sounds like he as a fish out of Water up in Pitt..

From everything I have seen, he is even more of a wild man on the sidelines than Mike Stoops.

I haven't seen a single article where anyone, much less former players, said he is a great coach.  Maybe you can link to an article that says that?

But his teams ARE disciplined and get very few penalties.  But all the current ASU players are used to DE's undisciplined approach.  Are they gonna be able to get in line?  How about Vontase Barfight?  Will he get kicked off the team?

I've heard a couple of interviews with Todd Graham and he definitely has a hyper-positive "My way or the highway" attitude about him; but that is what everyone was clamoring for after DE's laidback style. If Burfict was smart :D he would fully embrace it to re-energize his draft standing, because in a battle of the wills with this headstrong coach, Vontaze will come out the loser if he doesn't embrace the system.

Graham supposedly has deep recruiting roots in the South, Texas and California, so ASU might make deeper inroads into the big talent streams there. Only time will tell. That is if he doesn't bolt after a year. :-\ But a successful season, Territorial Cup victory and winning a serous bowl game will turn him from a goat into a hero.

And if he's really smart, it'll all start next season by reopening Tontozona with Kush watching from the sidelines.

With the ASU coaching search....beggers can't be chosers! It's just not a "next level" program.ESPN spoke about how ASU facilities are the worst on the west coast and how Pitt shares some facilities with the Steelers. Makes you wonder.

It may not be news in Tucson, but up here there is buzz about major changes to much of the entire athletic facilities, making them capable of hosting things like the Pan-Am games.
