Dan Wetzel writes, “Perhaps the most baffling conundrum in major college football is how the state of Arizona — with its resources, location, weather, etc. — is rarely good. The Sun Devils have posted a top 10 in 35 years (back in 1996) He fired Herm Edwards on Sunday after being beaten by Eastern Michigan, so here we have a potential situation – the program that seems capable of anything but inexplicably can never get out of his own way and the man and coach who has spent his life redefining what’s possible. Deion Sanders at Arizona State? Now that would be something.”

Andrew Gould writes: “Sanders has turned Jackson State into a juggernaut, so the former NFL and MLB star may have the opportunity to receive a marquee coaching job for a Power Five school. However, he also called his current job a “call” and magnified the importance of creating an HBCU program. Yet Sanders has interviewed for other major conference jobs, and he could turn the right school into a major player if he seeks a new job. Wetzel sees ASU as a “sleeping giant. Sanders is uniquely qualified to wake up.”

David Hookstead writes: “Sanders could be a great choice for the Sun Devils if the program is ready to be bold. The illusions about Urban Meyer are comical, but the former MLB and NFL player coming to Tempe is very realistic Last season, Sanders pulled off an 11-2 record with the Tigers in his second season with the program and he’s currently off to a 3-0 start in 2022. The man can get results on the court. Yes, it’s FCS football, but winning is always winning, and he does it at a high level.”
