  • Sun Devils picked 9th in Pac-12

    Scribes who cover the Pac-12 have tabbed the Arizona State Sun Devils to finish 9th in the conference in a preseason poll released Friday morning from Pac-12 Media Day in Los Angeles.

  • ASU with an easy(?) test against Colorado

    On paper it would appear #21 ASU should have little trouble against Colorado. The Buffaloes are 1-7 and 0-4 in their first year of PAC- 12 play. They have lost five straight, six straight against ranked teams and 21 straight away from home. In addition, Colorado has lost 11 regulars in its two deep—including six […]
  • Mr. Threet goes to Washington

    Steven Threet is used to the spotlight. It comes with the job of playing quarterback for a major college football program. But those days are over. Yet the spotlight remains. The former ASU quarterback found himself in our nation’s capital last week speaking in front of the U.S. Senate. “My C-SPAN debut,” he said with […]
  • Homecoming in Tempe and Week 9 in Pac-12

    We head into the last weekend of October, and things are starting to look a little more clear in the Pac-12–or maybe half of it. The Pac-12 South sees 21st-ranked Arizona State clearly in the catbird seat, while the intrigue is still thick in the North, with Stanford and Oregon still undefeated in conference play […]
  • ESPN Insider: The quicker to re-sign Erickson the better

    It’s no secret that Arizona State head coach is enjoying one of his better seasons. The Devils are leading the Pac-12 South, in control of their own destiny to reach the Pac-12 championship game and, given the outlook of everyone else in the division, the team could be atop for quite some time. So it […]
  • ASU getting pass rush help

    Teams always believe they can get more pressure on the quarterback. ASU believes they’ll be able to do just that with the return of sophomore defensive end Junior Onyeali. “Having Junior back (Saturday against Colorado) makes a big difference,” explained head coach Dennis Erickson. Onyeali, who led the Sun Devils and all PAC-10 freshmen with […]
  • Dennis Erickson hoping for contract extension

    Dennis Erickson’s team is having a banner year, and with just one season remaining on his contract it would seem as if the time is right for a contract extension. A guest on Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo Tuesday, the 64-year-old said he’d like to see happen. “I’d like to be here for as […]
  • ASU won’t lose focus

    It’s referred to as coach speak but it’s not coming from the head coach. It’s coming from the quarterback. It’s coming from one of the team’s captains. “I do know,” said Brock Osweiler, “that this team has been very good about taking it one week at a time and I think that’s the most important […]
  • Burfict named Butkus semifinalist

    Arizona State junior linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been a target of both local and national media for what is perceived as lackluster play in 2011. That didn’t stop the folks who hand out The Butkus Award to the nation’s top linebacker, who today included Burfict on their list of twelve semifinalists for the hardware. Burfict […]
  • Bolden getting closer to return?

    Earlier this season, Arizona State head coach Dennis Erickson said we may see injured cornerback Omar Bolden, who suffered a torn ACL in spring practice, back after ASU’s bye week. Well, the bye week has come and gone, and the 21st-ranked Sun Devils are beginning preparations for the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday afternoon. Does that […]
  • ASU ‘refreshed,’ ready for second half of season

    After three months of practice and seven straight games, ASU needed a break. “That bye week came at a very crucial point in time,” said quarterback Brock Osweiler during his weekly Monday press conference. “It really gave guys the chance to kind of heal up their body, refresh a little bit and get focused on […]
  • Erickson plays armchair quarterback

    With no game Saturday, ASU head coach Dennis Erickson had a chance to sit back, relax and be a fan for one of the few times during the season. “I had the remote…watched a lot of games,” he explained during his weekly press conference Monday. Of course in watching his colleagues he did what any […]
  • Is Brock Osweiler too complacent?

    “The way I see it in my eyes is we’re first place in the Pac-12 South,” ASU quarterback Brock Osweiler said. “We’re sitting right where we had hoped we’d be at this time during the season and we just have to continue to build upon that.” Osweiler has been praised for his leadership this season, […]
  • Osweiler: ‘We’re right where we want to be’

    The expectations were high for ASU coming into the season. Now seven games in to the 2011 campaign, those expectations remain unchanged. “The way I see it in my eyes is we’re in first place in the Pac-12 South,” said quarterback Brock Osweiler. “Our goal at the beginning of the season was to win the […]
  • ESPN’s Bob Davie calls Vontaze Burfict a distraction

    Arizona State University’s middle linebacker Vontaze Burfict is picking up the critics at an extraordinary rate.
