Arizona State not having any luck with DEs

Davon Coleman

With star defensive end Junior Onyeali suspended through spring practices for failing to meet “the high standards” of the football program, Arizona State was already down one man along the defensive line.

Now, they’re down another indefinitely.

According to a tweet from William Boor of ASU’s State Press Report, Sun Devils defensive end Davon Coleman, last year’s backup to Onyeali, is not practicing for, what else, failing “to meet a team standard.” The length and reason for the absence — we’ll refrain from calling it a suspension for now — has yet to be made public.

Coleman, a junior, played in all 12 regular season games for ASU last season (starting three), totaled 41 tackles (5 for loss) and tied for second on the team with 2.5 sacks.

    Sounds like the wheels are starting to fall off again, and before spring has hit. Talk a bout a group that’s out of control. Time to thin the hurd coach.

    Sounds to me like the team’s new bottom-feeding “coach” deserves his new bottom-dwelling, “out of control” team. Here’s hoping for much more of that kind of karma.

    Davon Coleman [Defensive End #43]
    is an outstanding player both on and off the field who regularly frequents the Arizona State University Student Recreation Complex to improve his already visible athleticism. His incredible work ethic is recognizable by many of his peers at Arizona State University, even among those who are not a part of the athletic program. Coleman is an interesting asset to the Sun Devils; particularly, because of his magnetic personality. Coleman is an electrifying individual. Inevitably, he strives for perfection.
    It honestly is fun to watch him play and it will definitely be an exciting season for him this coming fall.

    After making a sound transition into the program during his first year at Arizona State University, one can only imagine what Coleman has the potential to do for the Sun Devils.

    It is with great privilege that one is given the opportunity to watch the Arizona State football players practice for the 2012-2013 season.

    The effort exerted by the athletes is simply inspiring; honestly, spending an afternoon at Bill Kajikawa Practice Facility gave me great pleasure today. Practices normally run from 4pm-6pm on the weekdays and from 9am-11am on Saturdays.

    I encourage everyone to attend.
    Coleman IS on the field in full force, contrary to what the skeptics assume. Check him out!

    What is this, are you reading his bio from the teams program here. Really, who cares. I’m glad the kid is playing and not suspended, but who cares what a joy he is to watch or what his potential is. The bottom line is, this program has had more renegades come through over the years to match several Universites. ASU will never be a good program, no matter how hot chicks or parties they have on campus. They are bottom feeders and there coach fits in perfect.
