Todd Graham has put ASU on the map in only two years!

What are your thoughts on Arizona State winning the Pac-12 South? One-year wonder, or is Todd Graham building something special in Tempe?

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: I wouldn't go as far as to say that it is a one-year wonder, but the Sun Devils were built to have a great year with how many top-level seniors they have this season. I really like what he is doing, but I won't say that he is building something special until next season when he will have to patch a lot of holes left by departing seniors.

Chris Landon, UW Dawg Pound: A little of both. Todd Graham is a good coach, no matter what you think of his diva tendencies. He is kind of like Chip Kelly was in the early years in that his systems are compensating for his good but not elite talent. If recruiting continues on the upswing, then things could get special for ASU. Unfortunately, it would appear that their rise is coinciding with the resurgence of the boys of Troy.

Jason Bartel, AZ Desert Swarm: Both. Think they have a slight downturn next year with all the seniors that they have playing right now, but the players have definitely bought into the system.
