I kind of like White batter since I don't trust our defense for a dual-threat QB
White barely completed 50%. #2 for a reason
Both might not even play this game.
White is almost assuredly out, Wilkins might be back but he was on a boot. He said this on Wilkins last week, "“He’s a day-to-day type of situation and is obviously very doubtful and won’t play this week,” Graham said on Doug & Wolf on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Friday. “I think he has a chance to play the next week or maybe the one after that. It’s going to be a week-to-week kind of deal.”"
Also did they really burn Sterling-Cole's redshirt for 2 plays? I would hope not for the kid's sake.
Yes ASU burned Sterling-Cole's redshirt. They have no choice.
We either see the freshman 3rd stringer or Ballage running the sparkycat. I like these options.
I also like the scumdevils hanging another loss on ucla too.
I'd expect to see Wilkins, even if he's not 100%. White is definitely out, and I'm sure they really don't want to start the true frosh.
As for thr UCLA game, ASU knocked Rosen out of the game twice.
Good thing we have two QBs capable of beating ASU - hopefully it doesn't come to that, though. If we see Gehrke in anything more than a mop-up role, that will suck.
On topic, Wilkins at 75-80% is far better than a Frosh at 100%. His presumed lack of mobility will lead to a more rush-oriented attack for the world's largest community college program..
If Sterling-Cole starts expect a ton of runs/Sparky formation type stuff and simple out throws. We will have to load the box.
Tough week for Leavitt on the game plan. We really don't know what to expect. Could be a freshman pocket passer we want to force to throw into blanket coverage dropping 8 or it could be option football with a wildcat or it could be a vet QB who is gimpy and the emphasis is to get hits on him.
Brady White out for season.
Wilkins could start.
At least they know who to prepare for now.
Reading through ASU Twitter, it seems they expect Wilkins to start on Saturday, even though he might not even practice until Thursday. Allegedly, he was walking in a boot until yesterday. This is setting up nicely for us.
Don't get cocky, kid!
FIFY! Wilkins will not be 100%
What is Wilkins game like? Idk much about him.
He's a runner. So a high ankle sprain will slow him down a lot, at best. At worst (for him) it will eliminate that part of his game completely.
On an ESPN broadcast, Dan Hawkins referred to ASU's offense with Wilkins under center as "limp and launch."
How does he throw, like Edward Scissorhands? That could be a plus if so.
From what I remember of their game with Tech-Wilkins is a really good athlete when he's healthy. If it's going to be him for sure, I'd blitz the hell out of him and see how that ankle feels early on.
^^^ this is why the coaches haven't wanted to play Sefo.
That's another conversation, and we're in a much different situation than they are. They're likely playing Wilkins because they don't have any other choice. In case anyone was wondering, spread opened as CU -8 and it's ballooned to CU -13.
I am sorry for the players that they are hurt, but I am quite happy that it provides our Buffs the opportunity to jump all over america's stripper u and pound them into oblivion.
Seize the South. Now is the time for our Buffs to go through the South like Sherman marching to the sea.
I'd expect to see Wilkins. ASU knows what this game means.
It's not guaranteed that Wilkins will go.

Arizona State head coach Todd Graham announced that backup quarterback Brady White will miss the rest of the season after suffering a leg injury in Saturday's win over UCLA. White was starting in place of Manny Wilkins, who missed the game last week with a high ankle sprain. "We think we've got a good chance to get Manny back, and he's working toward that," Graham said Monday. If Wilkins can't go, freshman Dillon Sterling-Cole will likely start.
Almost every Sun Devil fan thinks highly of Colorado so I'm really surprised you people are throwing out Scum Devil, Stripper U, and calling us the largest community college considering your bottom feeding status since this year? Pretty rude and arrogant, I'm totally surprised? On the Scout premium board someone mentioned this attitude and I guess it is true. On other open boards outside our rival, Arizona, the level of hostility is not like this. Makes me not want to root for you guys like I did against Michigan and USC. Just great guys for the Colorado coaches, but I have heard your rep before moving to the PAC was pretty bad as a fan base with other teams. Graham thinks Wilkins will start, but his mobility will be an issue. Richard and Ballage are two of the best backs in the conference and you were not so hot at stopping the Trojans backs. I hoping for a good game in spite of ASU's obvious issues at QB. Most of us see this as a loss. Without Wilkins, ASU is starting its fourth string guy.
There is some bad blood around here towards ASU. Sorry. 1) Graham sucks. He has actually caused our HC to close preseason practices due to some of Graham's information gathering activities. 2) The basketball version of the sun devils have not been particularly friendly up at the CEC, one player actually took a swing at a student. 3) Sun Devil = Scum Devil is just to easy to pass up. 4) The community college thing isn't a response to the universities athletic prowess, but rather its academic standing.
Also, creating an account to provide us with info is nice. Creating it to give us info while also whining about some silly name calling... Not helping your case.
