In a coaching career that has spanned 20 seasons and six different schools, Dennis Erickson has never had back-to-back losing seasons once, and only four total.
I don't care who you are, or what sports or teams you follow, but that is impressive.
Unfortunately for Coach Erickson, that streak has a possibility of coming to an end this year. ASU (Erickson's current occupation) had an absolutely awful year last year.
With an atrocious offensive line and an offense that didn't know how to score, the Sun Devil's finished the year at 5-7 with a defense that actually outscored its offense at times.
Now, things don't look too promising for Erickson. The o-line is a huge question mark this year, and the Sun Devils have to break in a new quarterback after the departure of Rudy Carpenter.
To make the quarterback situation worse, no one else really got any experience, so the Devils will have to rely on someone who probably hasn't ever taken a meaningful snap.
I am a Devil fan, but I'm also a realist, and to improve on offense doesn't seem too realistic to me.
We shall see how things turn out, but if things don't improve on offense, then Dennis Erickson can kiss his career-long streak goodbye.
