2011 was suppossed to be ASU's year!  Over 30 returning seniors, a great Offense led by Brock Osweiller, and a monster Defense led by Vontaze Burfect.  The Sun Devils were the pre-season pick of nearly EVERY pundit to win the new PAC-12 South and go to the first innaugural PAC-12 Championsip game on December 1st.  But ASU, after two horrible road loses to UCLA & Washington State, both games they should have won, put the Sun Devils in a precarious postion.  UCLA controls their own destiny.  But they still have to beat USC @ the LA Coliseum to win the South.

The Sun Devils must win the final two games, Saturday's Territorial Bowl vs Arizona & Cal the following week. 

Fans of the Sun Devils are SCREAMING for Coach Dennis Erickson's head.  His mediocre 31 - 28 record in 5 years as Head Coach of ASU is UNACCEPTABLE!  His 21 - 23 PAC-12 record is horrible; not what ASU fans and boosters want or deserve.  In his weekly press conference, this is what Erickson had to say:


The conventionall wisdom is this.....Dennis Erickson must win the final 2 games + the PAC-12 title game vs Oregon to retain his job.  Here might be a hint to the 'survival' of Erickson Tweeted out by Lisa Love, ASU Athletic Director:

5 years is more than enought time for Dennis Erickson to prove himself.  ASU deserves more from their coach.  Erickson's time has passed him by.  He either need to retire gracefully or be fired at seasons end.

Here is our poll on who you think should replace Dennis Erickson:
