We have to wonder if the Herm Edwards experiment has finally run its course

While there is no shame in losing on the road to then-No. 11 Oklahoma State in Stillwater, we have to wonder if this Herm Edwards experiment has run its course in the Valley of the Sun. He was hired to develop talent and recruit at a high level. In only a few years’ time, Arizona State has largely become an afterthought in the Pac-12. The Sun Devils missed out on their big opportunity.

When in-state rival Arizona has more juice on the gridiron than you, that’s a problem. Of course, Utah and Oregon still run the conference, with USC and UCLA certainly on the upswing. Given the amount of talent in-state, Arizona State should be so much better than this. Eventually, someone is going to wake up this sleeping giant. Unfortunately, that man is not going to be Coach Edwards.

Arizona State should be one of the Pac-12’s crown jewels, not a forgettable program out west.

Karl Dorrell may not win a game leading the Colorado Buffaloes this season

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but are the Colorado Buffaloes going to win a game this year? They are already 0-2 in non-conference play with uncompetitive losses to TCU and Air Force. Although the Horned Frogs and Falcons are well-coached under Sonny Dykes and Troy Calhoun, the same thing cannot be said for the Buffaloes under Karl Dorrell. Even if he doesn’t go 0-for, he is so gone.

Colorado is probably not winning its final non-conference game at Minnesota. The Buffs are probably starting the year out 0-4 with a Pac-12 opening loss to UCLA. They might beat Arizona, but Jedd Fisch has that thing trending up in Tucson. Do you think they can beat Cal, Oregon State in Corvallis or Washington? We are grasping for wins here, as there are so few to be had for Dorrell.

It will probably serve Colorado to go through a most thorough coaching search this time around…
