08:24 AM ET 12.01 | Former Arizona State great Danny White joined a radio show recently to chat about the state of Sun Devils football. [The show's host] mentioned that he thought ASU junior linebacker Vontaze Burfict was a microcosm of the Erickson era. (In Friday's game against California, Burfict was benched for a series after committing his second personal foul in the second half. According to sources, the middle linebacker later refused to return to the game.) "I agree 100 percent," White said. "He was also the reason Dennis Erickson got fired. When your best football player is a guy like that, he's what I call a coach killer. He's such a great athlete, you have to have him on the field. But by the same token, the negatives outweigh the positives with him.

I thought Vontaze Burfict was some kind of gastro-intestinal disorder.
