ASU holds Camp Tontozona scrimmage

August 16, 2008

Head Coach Dennis Erickson

On where the team is at after this scrimmage:

"We're where we need to be defensively, although we need to improve. If we want to become a dominant defense, then we've got to be better than we are. We've got to tackle better. We missed some tackles. On the other side of the football, we're not executing very well. We're not throwing and catching, though we had some guys out, obviously, with some injuries. So we've got to continue to improve. We'll get better as time goes on. It's a young group. They will get better and better all the time. I thought in our kicking game, Thomas [Weber] obviously kicked extremely well. What I'm excited about is how he's punting. He's punting the ball extremely well. I thought there was a lot of intensity, but we've got a long way to go to be where we need to be."

On the tradition of Camp Tontozona:

"The guys that have been up here, obviously, know the tradition, because they've slept in those cabins. It was nice. We got together last night, we ate, had a good meal and then everybody watched a movie together. Then to come down here and practice, and have a great crowd like this, it was really worth the trip."

On Rudy Carpenter's play today:

"Well, Rudy's learning that there are certain things you can't do with the ball. It's a lot easier to throw it out of bounds and have it be 2nd and 10 than have it be 2nd and 25. That's a process that we've worked on since last fall. He's getting better at that."
