Pac-12 Media Days 2012: Todd Graham, Impatient Builder

"The hardest thing is being patient," said Todd Graham. He was talking about installing his up-tempo offense at a place that's used a swinging-gate passing game as of late, but he could've been talking about sticking around at a single location for more than a season or two. He wasn't.

As for his "whittling" of the quarterback depth chart into a definite Week 1 starter, don't expect any news this week. Graham expects suspended defensive end Junior Onyeali to be back in good standing with the program in time for fall camp.

One consistent message from Graham and linebacker Brandon Magee: ASU has to stop committing so many penalties. The Sun Devils have been known more for catastrophic mistakes than for anything else over the past two or three years, which Magee describes as "unacceptable."
