      For those worried about too much hype, Herbstreit picked ASU to win the south over us.

      Why? I don’t see why he sees that

        Because Urban Meyer told him that was his pick.

        Not sure, but my guess is because he listed ASU as one of his surprise teams.

          Surprise for ASU could mean 8-4.  Lots of folks have them sub .500.

            Can Jayden Daniels be enough as a true freshman? Really?

        I’d love to hear the reasoning as well.  Their defense seemed to be about the middle of the pack.  Good, not great.  Losing Wilkins and replacing him with 175 pound freshman is not doing them any favors, and they won’t replace Harry’s production.  Benjamin can carry them on his back, but it’ll be pretty tough going if they ever get in a hole.  Weird pick, but maybe he’s not paying that much attention.

          Same. This is my guess – with USC down, ASU is the safe pick based on brand recognition in the south and minimal information.

          Herbie doesn’t seem to rock the boat much and always picks the biggest names until proven otherwise. The safest picks probably result in the best odds of picking accuracy, which is partly why he’s employed as an analyst.

      ASU… my least favorite fan base in the PAC… on par with BYU fans in my book.

      I don’t see it – scrawny freshman QB, and no N’Keal Harry to bail them out over and over. Only threat they have this year IMO is Eno Benjamin.

      Herbie thinks Eno is going to carry the ball 50 times a game I guess.

        If he does that against Sparty, he’ll be lucky to play another game this season.

          ASU schedule is not very easy. Cal is going to have a quality defense. Wazzu has been pretty good as well. I think they beat Colorado and then drop the next three. 

          Whitt is going to dismantle them and you know Huntley will be dialed in.

            I actually think their schedule lines up nicely. They miss Washington and Stanford and get Wazzu, USC, Oregon, and Arizona all at home. Their toughest conference road game is here in SLC.

            Freshman QB not withstanding, they always seem to have good skill position guys. Benjamin will have to carry the load no doubt, but it would not surprise me if they have a WR emerge by mid-season.

            Obviously all games are important, but I think this game is right up there with usc in must win to have a shot at the south this year.

              They’re all must wins. I’m sure the team views it that way too.

      N’Keal Harry’s production will prove to be too much to overcome…..Plus a True Freshman stick-figure at QB?

        Pac 12 has always been hard to gauge , seems like the predictions are always wrong and there’s always a teams that surprises the popular consensus ; that’s what makes me nervous about the hype the Utes are getting this year.. don’t get me wrong I think we have the talent and capability to win the pac straight out ; but we still have to run the gauntlet of Az st Washington and Washington St ; our past records against those teams suck .. has me nervous but if there’s ever a year , this is the year.. regardless, let’s get this ball rolling it been a long summer and I am ready for the season to begin.
