    More than any other program in the country, Arizona State has a habit of underachieving when it begins the season highly ranked or expected to make a run at a Pac-10 title.

    Well, that’s one less thing to worry about in 2007.

    After losing five league games and failing to approach last year’s target, the Sun Devils don’t figure to get nearly as much love in the preseason polls as the last two seasons, even though the team might be better than it’s been over the last few years.

    Looking to end the cycle of mediocrity in Tempe, the administration ended the Dirk Koetter era last November and promptly began the Dennis Erickson era. Erickson, college football’s version of Larry Brown, left Idaho after just ten months on the job for his third assignment with a Pac-10 team. You want loyalty? Buy a dog. If you want to elevate a program that’s stuck in neutral, hand the keys to Erickson, a program builder and proven winner who has a knack for igniting a fan base.

    One thing the Sun Devils have never lacked is talent, and this season will be no different. They return ample starters on both sides of the ball, including the starting quarterback, top rusher, entire offensive line and leading tackler. One of the primary objectives for Erickson and his staff will be to correct the flaws of quarterback Rudy Carpenter who was good enough to lead the nation in passing efficiency as a freshman before imploding as an error-prone and unsure sophomore in 2006.

    There’s work to be done in Tempe, especially on defense, but Erickson knew he wasn’t inheriting a reclamation project when he accepted this job. There’s a nice blend of veteran and budding talent and a manageable schedule that features eight home games, ingredients for a banner year. For the love of Sparky, just don’t mention it to the Sun Devils until after the season has kicked off.

    What to watch for on offense: While there will be subtle differences, Erickson’s desire to spread the field, shift formations and attack through the air doesn’t stray far from Koetter’s old system. In other words, the personnel recruited to Arizona State will mesh nicely with what Erickson and coordinator Rich Olson are trying to achieve. If Carpenter can rebound from last year, his passing combined with the north-south running of Ryan Torain will make the Sun Devils a bear to deal with.

    What to watch for on defense: The Sun Devils never have trouble finding quality athletes on defense, but molding that talent into a stingy unit has long been difficult in the desert. They started strong in 2006, but fell apart when the Pac-10 schedule began and were shredded by the league’s better offenses. Expect more of the same in 2007 from a group that loses six starters and is especially weak in pass defense, a death sentence in this conference. Arizona State needs about a half-dozen more players like safety Josh Barrett and tackle Michael Marquardt, the two defenders with all-league potential.

    The team will be far better if …Carpenter plays like he did as a freshman and is the next best thing to John David Booty in the Pac-10. If the Sun Devils are going to overachieve for a change, it’ll be because the offense is ringing up 35 points every Saturday in October and November. For that to happen, it’s incumbent upon Carpenter to shake off 2006 and prevent defenses from loading up on Torain.

    The Schedule: It works out almost as well as can be asked, with five conference games at home and the one rough patch coming late in the year. The first four games are at home, including the Pac-10 opener against Oregon State, while a two-game road trip to Stanford and Washington State isn’t all that bad. Following a home date with Washington, the Sun Devils host Cal, go on the road to play Oregon and UCLA, and host USC before finishing up at home with the showdown against Arizona. If they can win three of those last five, it’ll be a very successful year.

    Best Offensive Player: Senior RB Ryan Torain. The former JUCO transfer took a few games to heat up, but then he dominated with six games of 90 yards or more in the final 11, finishing with 1,229 yards, seven touchdowns and 5.5 yards per carry. He’s a big back with a little wiggle and good hands, but he didn’t get the ball thrown his way much late in the year.

    Best Defensive Player: Senior FS Josh Barrett. With terrific size and next-level hitting ability, the 6-2, 220 pound senior lived up to his promise by leading the team with 82 tackles and three interceptions. With running mate Zach Cantanese gone, he’ll have to make even more big plays against the pass, while making better decisions to help out the corners.

    Key player to a successful season: Senior OT Brandon Rodd. Part of Carpenter’s problem last season was time; he didn’t have any. The ASU offensive line allowed 35 sacks and several more pressures, and while Carpenter was indecisive and held on to the ball too long at times, he needs more protection. With Andrew Carnahan gone, the 6-4, 301-pound Rodd becomes the team’s top tackle, but he needs to be stronger in pass protection.

    The season will be a success if ... ASU wins ten games. It might take a bowl win to do it, but the schedule works out well, the defense will get at least half the season before it has to figure out who can actually play, and the offense can’t help but be better with Rudy Carpenter and Ryan Torian in the backfield, leading the way

    2007 Arizona State Preview - Offense

    What you need to know: Arizona State really wasn’t Arizona State in 2006, but with ten starters returning, there’s reason to believe the offense will rebound and score in bunches. Dennis Erickson brings a balanced and unpredictable system that’ll use multiple formations and plenty of shotgun, yet still lean heavily on the running game. The success of the unit hinges on the play of quarterback Rudy Carpenter, who looked destined for stardom as a freshman before suffering through a humbling sophomore season marked by turnovers and lapses in confidence. His supporting cast is headed by Ryan Torain, one of the nation’s best backs that no one outside the Pac-10 has seen. With six seasoned linemen back, he’s destined to become the first Sun Devil in over 30 years to go for more than 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. Although Carpenter’s receivers did nothing to help him out of his slump in 2006, they’re now awash with the kind of speed and playmaking potential that’s customary in Tempe.

    Returning Leaders
    Passing: Rudy Carpenter
    156-228, 2,273 yds, 17 TD, 2 INT
    Rushing: Keegan Herring
    158 carries, 870 yds, 6 TD
    Receiving: Rudy Burgess
    59 catches, 655 yds, 4 TD

    Star of the offense: Senior RB Ryan Torain
    Player that has to step up and become a star: Junior QB Rudy Carpenter
    Unsung star on the rise: Sophomore WRs Brandon Smith and Kyle Williams
    Best pro prospect: Torain
    Top three all-star candidates: 1) Torain 2) C Mike Pollak 3) LT Brandon Rodd
    Strength of the offense: The running backs, line experience
    Weakness of the offense: Pass protection, turnovers


    Projected Starter: In 2005, junior Rudy Carpenter led the country in passing efficiency. In 2006, he was among the nation’s leaders in unfulfilled expectations. To the untrained eye, Carpenter’s 23 touchdown passes and 2,523 passing yards were respectable by most standards, but told only part of the story. Compared to two years ago, his completion percentage and passing efficiency plummeted, his interceptions soared and his confidence nosedived. Carpenter was a completely different quarterback, yet it wasn’t entirely his fault. He broke bones in both of his hands at points during the season and was saddled with one of the Pac-10’s most anemic collections of receivers. Although both situations will be improved in 2007, will it be enough to get Carpenter back to those days when he was an overnight freshman sensation? He’ll have to if the Sun Devils are going to shake the perennial “underachiever” label.

    Projected Top Reserves: Sophomore Danny Sullivan was supposed to redshirt in 2006 before all hell broke loose and Sam Keller transferred out of Tempe. The good news is that last year’s baptism under fire means he’s far better prepared to be the No. 2 guy this year. At 6-4 and 236 pounds, he’s got the strong arm and pocket presence to be the second coming of Andrew Walter once he gets on the field.

    True freshmen Samson Szakacsy and Chasen Stangel are a couple of gems that’ll compete for the No. 3 job and a real early lead to replace Carpenter after he graduates.

    Watch Out For… Carpenter to rebound swiftly from last season’s sophomore slump. A gifted passer that throws a sweet long ball, he’ll benefit from Dennis Erickson’s presence, the absence of a quarterback controversy and a more mature receiving corps.
    Strength: Carpenter. It’s an odd choice after he was so wildly inconsistent in 2006, but Carpenter still has the potential to be one of the league’s most dangerous and prolific passers. Erickson and his staff are going to make darn sure he realizes that potential this fall.
    Weakness: Consistency. Few quarterbacks did a more pronounced about-face last year than Carpenter, who played timid at times, made a ton of bad reads, and went six consecutive games with less than 200 yards passing. While he’s probable to bounce back, it’s still hard to suggest that with complete conviction.
    Outlook: Much like Dennis Dixon up in Eugene, just how far Arizona State goes in 2007 will hinge heavily on Carpenter playing like he did two years ago. From the new staff to the improved play of the receivers in the spring, all signs point to more big plays and fewer turnovers for the junior.
    Rating: 8

    Running Backs

    Projected Starter: Arizona State struck gold last year with senior Ryan Torain, a modestly recruited back out of Butler (Kan.) Community College. Despite not starting the first five games of 2006, he ran for 1,229 yards, eighth-best in school history, caught 18 passes and scored ten touchdowns. In a disappointing season for the offense, the 6-1, 213-pound Torain was the one shining light, running with power and determination inside and a good burst once he got outside the tackles. Suddenly, one of the afterthoughts from the Sun Devil class of 2006 is the focal point of the offense and one of the nation’s premier runners entering the upcoming season.

    Projected Top Reserves: The presence of junior Keegan Herring gives the Sun Devils one of the best one-two punches in the Pac-10, if not the entire country. While Torain is big and physical, Herring gives the offense a change-of-pace and a long ball threat whenever he gets a hint of daylight. The 5-10, 186-pounder ran for 549 yards in 2006, and has averaged at least 5.5 yards a carry in each of his two seasons in Tempe.

    Not far behind Herring is sophomore Dmitri Nance, a compact, powerful runner that debuted with 229 yards and three scores on 56 carries in his true freshman season. At 5-10 and 204 pounds, he’s always moving forward and surging for more yards, making him a natural around the goal line and in short yardage.

    Watch Out For… junior Shaun DeWitty. He missed all of spring with back problems, but a healthy DeWitty would make a deep backfield even more crowded in 2007. The star of spring last year, he’s a 6-2, 217-pounder with soft hands and the best pass blocking skills among the backs.
    Strength: Depth. The emergence of Nance, who ran like a young Emmitt Smith in April, gives the Sun Devils three quality backs capable of carrying the load on a given Saturday. If DeWitty is 100% by September, Dennis Erickson will struggle to keep all of his backs well fed this fall.
    Weakness: Pass catching. It’s not as if the Sun Devil backs can’t catch, but rather they don’t get used quite enough in the passing game. That should change under Dennis Erickson, particularly if quarterback Rudy Carpenter hits a rough patch with his accuracy again this season.
    Outlook: With Torain resembling a longshot Heisman contender and three quality backs behind him, the potential exists for this 2007 group of runners to be one of the best ever assembled at pass-happy Arizona State.
    Rating: 8.5


    Projected Starters: The receivers were uncharacteristically feeble last season, but this is Arizona State, so don’t expect the lack of production to last. All of last year’s freshmen and sophomores are now sophomores and juniors, which will make for more reliable targets for quarterback Rudy Carpenter. One of the Sun Devils’ most versatile athletes, senior Rudy Burgess, is returning to the slot after moonlighting at cornerback in 2006. A 5-10, 188-pound jackrabbit in the open field, he’s the only player in the Pac-10 with 1,000 career yards rushing and receiving. Burgess can fly, and is the team’s one receiver that makes people miss, which will prompt the new staff to concoct ways to get him the ball.

    After scratching the surface of his potential with 20 catches and three touchdowns in 2006, junior Michael Jones is ready to explode from the outside X spot. An imposing target at 6-4 and 208 pounds, he has good speed and the athletic ability to make acrobatic grabs above overmatched defensive backs.

    At the Z spot will be sophomore Chris McGaha, who parlayed 16 catches for 238 yards and three touchdowns into a spot on the Pac-10 All-Freshman team in 2006. A reliable receiver on the short and intermediate routes, he also has the straight line speed to get behind unsuspecting secondaries.

    Following in the huge footsteps of All-American tight end Zach Miller will be his older brother Brent Miller. The senior and three-time letterwinner doesn’t lack for experience, being the only Sun Devil to play all 37 games over the last three years. Although he doesn’t have his brother’s skill set, at 6-5 and 237 pounds, he’s an improving run blocker and a sure-handed downfield receiver that should surpass his career total of 21 catches in 2007.

    Projected Top Reserves: If the spring is a fair indicator, the second unit will be loaded with young playmakers this fall. Sophomore Kyle Williams will back up Burgess in the slot, where he can use his quickness and good wheels to create big yards after the catch. While only 5-10 and 185 pounds, he’s really hit the weights in the off-season in anticipation of increased playing time.

    Behind Jones at the X will be another sophomore, Brandon Smith, who also turned the corner in April. A 6-2, 200-pound sprinter, he gives the offense another vertical option that can stretch defenses and soften them up for the underneath route runners. Purely in terms of measurables and athletic ability, Smith is one of the bar-setters on the squad.

    2007 Arizona State Preview - Defense

    What you need to know: Six starters return to a defense that improved in 2006, yet still allowed more than 40 points in four of the final ten games. The Sun Devils will continue to run out of a 4-3 base while asking their linebackers and safeties to freelance and make plays all over the field. There are building blocks—and question marks—at each unit heading into 2007. Tackle Michael Marquardt and Dexter Davis have all-league potential, but both are going to need support from a couple of new starters. Although the linebackers have considerable upside, the man in the middle, Morris Wooten, is a first-year player. And while safety Josh Barrett and corner Justin Tryon will play on Sundays, the pass defense is in deep trouble if the other cornerback gets routinely exposed. The net result? A nice collection of talent that’ll still allow plenty of yards to the Pac-10’s finer-tuned offenses.

    Returning Leaders
    Tackles: Zach Catanese, 107
    Sacks: Zach Catanese, 2
    Interceptions: Several at 1

    Star of the defense: Senior FS Josh Barrett
    Player that has to step up and become a star: Senior CB Chris Baloney
    Unsung star on the rise: Sophomore LB Mike Nixon
    Best pro prospect: Barrett
    Top three all-star candidates: 1) Barrett 2) DE Dexter Davis 3) DT Michael
    Strength of the defense: The safeties, creating pressure
    Weakness of the defense: Pass defense, depth at cornerback

    Defensive Line

    Projected Starters: In senior tackle Michael Marquardt and sophomore end Dexter Davis, the Sun Devils have all-league type players, but after those two, the line is full of question marks. Davis wound up being a revelation for the defense in 2006, leading all Pac-10 freshmen with 10.5 tackles for loss, six sacks and three forced fumbles. Undersized for the position at just 6-2 and 247 pounds, he relies on a sudden first step and linebacker quickness to school opposing tackles.

    In his first season after transferring from BYU, Marquardt developed into the run stuffer that the defense sorely needed on the interior. As a 12-game starter, ASU’s impact newcomer turned 25 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks into honorable mention All-Pac-10 honors. Powerful enough to plug the gaps at 6-4 and 295 pounds, he also has the quickness to make stops behind the line.

    The coaching staff is hoping that JUCO transfer Luis Vasquez can win a job and provide some much needed support to Davis at the other end position. A two-time All-American at Arizona Western College, he was a sack machine, piling up 31 in two seasons against overmatched competition. Quick off the snap and technically sound, he’ll get every opportunity to be an every down player.

    Next to Marquardt will be David Smith, a career backup getting his first shot at being a regular. A mobile, hard-working junior, he could have problems playing at only 280 pounds once league action begins.

    Projected Top Reserves: If Vasquez fails to live up to expectations, senior Kellen Mills will fill the void at end. A veteran of 36 games, mostly on special teams, he’s got a great motor and work ethic that’ll earn him no worse than a key role in the D-line rotation this season.

    At 6-6 and 275 pounds, senior Tranell Morant has the raw physical skills of a future pro, but has contributed little since transferring from Florida because of nagging injuries. Dennis Erickson flirted with the idea of moving him inside this fall, a move that’s been hampered by Morant’s inability to stay on the field in the spring.

    In order to bolster lagging depth at tackle, redshirt freshman Saia Falahola has been relocated from the offensive line. Looking leaner and just as mighty, he has quickly elevated to the spot behind Marquardt, and represents an interesting long-term project.

    Watch Out For… Vasquez. While it’s obviously a huge step up in competition, Vasquez flashed the potential in junior college to be the complementary edge rusher the Sun Devils need in 2007. If he fails to deliver, Davis is going to get much more attention than he’s used to seeing.
    Strength: Davis. In a league known for its prolific passing attacks and pro-style quarterbacks, Davis gives the Devil D a necessary antidote, a speedy edge rusher that’s going to get better with more playing time.
    Weakness: Depth, especially on the inside. When a freshman, such as Falahola, switches positions and immediately becomes an integral cog in the line, it says more about the dearth of talent than anything else.
    Outlook: Although Marquardt and Davis are solid building blocks, this will be no better than an average Sun Devil defensive line if additional reinforcements aren’t developed at both end and tackle.
    Rating: 7


    Projected Starters: Led by sophomore outside linebackers Travis Goethel and Mike Nixon, there’s a youth movement going on at linebacker in Tempe. Both played extensively as true freshmen, laying the groundwork for bright futures with the program. Nixon has three years of eligibility remaining, yet isn’t exactly youthful at the age of 23. A former Los Angeles Dodger farm hand, he played 13 games in his gridiron return, starting four and notching 32 tackles, eight tackles for loss and three sacks. Well-sized at 6-3 and 232 pounds, he plays with exceptional range from the weakside and possesses the maturity that this unseasoned unit needs.

    Goethel wasted no time showing why he was one of the program’s headline recruits of 2006. A four-game starter and member of the Freshman All-Pac-10 squad, he had 29 tackles and steadily improved throughout the year. He’s an instinctive linebacker who’ll be a fixture through 2009.

    Junior Morris Wooten was supposed to win the middle linebacker job in his first year out of Glendale (Ariz.) Community College, and that’s exactly what he did in the spring. Showing good run stopping skills and lateral quickness, he’s poised to become the next in a growing line of mid-year transfers that make an immediate impact on the defensive side of the ball.

    Projected Top Reserves: After an outstanding debut as a safety, sophomore Ryan McFoy is moving to outside linebacker in order to give a jolt of athleticism to the corps. He started eight games in the secondary in 2006, finishing seventh on the team with 34 tackles and picking off a pair of passes. Undersized at 6-2 and 205 pounds, McFoy will be used as a designated blitzer and should be one of the unit’s best pass defenders.

    A serious knee injury to redshirt freshman Jamarr Robinson has elevated sophomore Gerald Munns to the No. 2 spot behind Wooten. A 6-4, 240-pound letterwinner as a true freshman, he had 15 tackles, flashing good instincts for the position.

    Senior Robert James is the most experienced member of the linebackers, but has been suffering from headaches that have limited his availability since last season. A part-time starter at weakside in 2005, his presence would give a much-needed dose of veteran leadership to the second team.

    Watch Out For… Nixon and Goethel. Everything was new for them in 2006, but with a season of experience under the belt, they’re ready to form an exciting tandem at outside linebacker for Arizona State.
    Strength: Outside linebacker. Assuming James can suit up this season, the Sun Devils will have four outside linebackers with starting experience at some point in their careers.
    Weakness: Athleticism. The ASU linebackers are more instinctive than off-the-charts quick, which is one of the reasons Dennis Erickson chose to shift McFoy from the defensive backfield to one of the outside positions.
    Outlook: While the linebackers will be good in September, they’ve got a chance to be much better than that by the second half of the year. With all of the key components expected back for anther season, this could be a sneaky good group by 2008.
    Rating: 6.5


    Projected Starters: Senior free safety Josh Barrett is the star of the 2007 defense and one of the premier players at his position in the country. A 6-3, 230-pound enforcer in a linebacker’s body, he led last year’s team with 82 tackles and three interceptions en route to All-Pac-10 recognition. A starter since his freshman season, Barrett brings a toughness and no-nonsense presence that’s helps give the defense an identity.

    Barrett will be joined in the defensive backfield by junior strong safety Jeremy Payton, who’s 6-1 and 210 pounds, yet has the cover skills to get looks from the staff at cornerback. A gifted all-around athlete, he had 25 tackles a year ago to earn the second letter of his career.

    The return of senior Justin Tryon for his second season in Tempe means the defense is set at one cornerback spot. In his first year removed from the College of the Canyons, he played with next level speed and quickly became the Sun Devils’ best cover man. After leading the team with seven pass breakups in 2006, Tryon will be counted on to turn more of those tips into picks in 2007. His partner in the secondary, however, is far more uncertain.

    Senior Chris Baloney is the leading candidate after lettering in his first year out of the College of the Sequoias. The 6-1, 194-pounder was a starter last September, but had his season curtailed by an injury, and finished with 17 tackles and two interceptions in six games. With Tryon on the other side, Baloney will be a marked man that must deliver consistency in 2007.
