It wasn't a great year for college football in the state of Arizona, as both Mike Stoops and Dennis Erickson were fired for disappointing regular season results and finished with a combined record of 10-15.
Phil Steele's preseason All-American list for 2012 (and he has four teams filled with All-Americans!) is almost totally devoid of players from either Arizona or ASU. Only one player makes the list from either squad.
The Sun Devils getting Jamal Miles is a nod to his great return skills. He averaged 16.57 yards per punt return last year, and had almost 26.27 yards per kick return, including two kick return touchdowns. If Miles can keep on returning that well, ASU could win games thanks to the field position Miles provides.
