It's so close. Can you feel it? FOOTBALL is nigh.
As we unofficially kick off our sixth season, we take our annual preview of the Sun Devils through a national and Pac-12 lens.
First off, we take a look at a commonly held belief among fans: ASU does better when expectations are lower. Joe brings some hard data to this anecdotal fight.
Next up, we're joined by Kaelen Jones of House of Sparky to hear his experiences from Pac-12 Media Day and get his thoughts on the Sun Devils, RichRod, and the Pac-12 title race.
Then it's time to buy or sell the major storylines around the Pac-12 on a special conference version of the Sun Devil Stock Report.
We then welcome back ESPN SportsCenter anchor and ASU alum Matt Barrie to get his thoughts on Todd Graham's job security, the quarterback battle, and how ASU stacks up against their division rivals.
HOT TAKE ALERT: Brad and Joe then dish out their Pac-12 season predictions on a wide range of topics. Some are even bound to be right!
We wrap up with a talk with the legendary Phil Steele. The magazine maestro and ESPN analyst breaks down the game like only he can...and tells ASU fans why he believes good things are coming up for the Sun Devils.
