Episode History

Episode 5: In episode five of the 'Sun Devil Source Report' podcast, Kerry and Chris break down their projected two-deep depth chart for ASU. With position battles still brewing at quarterback, in the secondary and along the offensive line, the SunDevilSource crew talks about the different combinations of players ASU can use in given situations and what fans should expect to see when the Sun Devils release their depth chart. Kerry and Chris also open up the mailbag to questions from the Devils' Sanctuary and discuss what to expect from Chip Lindsey's offense, why younger players are making strides and how involved Todd Graham will be with defensive coordinator Keith Patterson during the 2016 season.

Episode 4: Part two of our two-part series from ASU football media day focuses on interviews with defensive coordinator Keith Patterson and some of the Sun Devils' key defensive personnel in senior safety Laiu Moeakiola, sophomore safety Armand Perry, junior defensive back Marcus Ball and junior linebacker D.J. Calhoun. In episode four, Patterson discusses his new role with ASU this season as the Sun Devils' defensive play caller and how he and head coach Todd Graham's scheme has evolved through their years of working together. Moeakiola talks about the challenges of moving back and forth from the safety and Spur linebacker positions throughout his career, as well as the type of legacy he wants to leave behind with the Sun Devils when his playing days are over. Perry missed ASU's 2015 season due to injury, and the redshirt sophomore discusses the challenges of sitting on the sidelines and how it's made him appreciate the game of football in a new way. Ball has also struggled to stay healthy through his career at ASU, and now that he's back to full strength, he discusses the opportunity to make a name for himself within the Sun Devil program. Finally, the show wraps up with an interview with Calhoun, who talks about some of the schematic changes ASU's defense will incorporate this season. Calhoun also opens up about his recruitment and his introduction to college football during his freshman season in a game against USC.

Episode 3: Part one of our two-part series from ASU media day focuses on the offensive side of the football as Kerry and Chris sit down with coordinator Chip Lindsey, offensive line coach Chris Thomsen, tight end Kody Kohl, quarterbacks Manny Wilkins and Brady White as well as running back Kalen Ballage. Lindsey discusses the transition from Southern Miss to ASU and his baptism by fire during the Sun Devils' bowl game last year, while also talking about his offensive background and how his philosophy as a coach took shape. Thomsen speaks about the raw talent of an offensive line group that returns just one starter, but possesses an impressive amount of potential and determination. Kohl reflects on committing to ASU when the program offered him in high school, and how as a fifth-year senior, he's still pushing to achieve goals he began his career with. Wilkins and White talk about the quarterback competition and their maturation process at the college level, as well as the type of coaching points Lindsey has given them and how they can apply Lindsey's lessons to practice on a daily basis. Lastly, Ballage opens up about the opportunity to play alongside junior running back Demario Richard under a new offensive coordinator with a history of managing two talented ball carriers.

Episode 2: This episode of Sun Devil Source Report details the 48 hours of uncertainty Arizona State redshirt freshman quarterback Bryce Perkins faced to start his week, as SunDevilSource reported Perkins was considering a transfer before he ultimately decided to remain at ASU and remain at quarterback. After SunDevilSource reported ASU coaches approached Perkins about a potential position change, Perkins suffered an injury during a practice that impacted his deliberations process regarding a potential transfer. After learning he would miss two-to-three months with a neck injury, Perkins decided he will stay at ASU. The team also discusses the injuries to junior running back Demario Richard as well as sophomore wide receiver Jalen Harvey, and they wrap up the episode by discussing potential position switches for junior linebacker Christian Sam, sophomore offensive lineman Quinn Bailey and redshirt freshman offensive lineman Zach Robertson
