  • Arizona Cardinals right to let Darnell Dockett walk to San Francisco

    It's been fun watching Darnell Dockett in Cardinal red for the last 11 years, but it's time to move on.
  • Phoenix Suns may be younger, but they’re not any more likable

    What happened Saturday night at US Airways Center will go down as one of the uglier nights in Phoenix Suns’ history. It was just “one of those games.” The Suns, still very much in contention for one of the Western Conference’s eight playoff spots, stunk up the joint, losing 101-74 to the defending World Champion […]
  • Phoenix Suns’ Ryan McDonough has his work cut out for him in Goran Dragic situation

    It'll be tough for Ryan McDonough to spin the Goran Dragic situation into a positive.
  • Save your Seattle Seahawks’ play call conspiracy theory, please

    Yes, the play call was questionable. But a conspiracy theory to prove a point? Please...
  • Bowl games for everyone: The 2014 edition!

    Back in 2008, the Arizona State Sun Devils, then coached by Dennis Erickson, limped through a 5-7 season and failed to qualify for a bowl game. There’s really only one thing worse than playing in some mid-December bowl game with a corporate sponsor you’ve never heard of — and that, of course, is not playing […]
  • Arizona Cardinals need to run the football to get back in win column

    If you follow the Arizona Cardinals, you may think the sky is falling. The team has lost two games in a row. In Week 12, the Cardinals’ offense struggled to get anything going in a 19-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Last week, it was a full team breakdown in a 29-18 defeat at the […]
  • Arizona Cardinals should just say ‘no’ to Ray Rice — and not why you think

    If you left your couch to get a snack, yell in frustration or vomit at halftime of the Arizona Cardinals’ 29-18 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, you missed an interesting comment. FOX NFL analyst Jimmy Johnson suggested the Cardinals may need to look at a very controversial figure in hopes of jump-starting their sputtering […]
  • Pac Mentality Week 14: Arizona Wildcats swoop in to take the South

    A few things had to happen for the Arizona Wildcats to capture the Pac-12 South title over the last handful of weeks.
  • Waxing poetic for the Territorial Cup

    Once upon a time, in honor of the Duel in the Desert football game between the Arizona State Sun Devils and the Arizona Wildcats, I’d write an annual poem. I’ve been a little busier in recent years, so this tradition has been sporadic at best. Think leap year, except with rhymes. But how could I […]
  • Pac Mentality Week 13: UCLA Bruins still control their own destiny in the South

    Would the real contenders for the Pac-12 South please step forward? Not so fast, USC and Utah.
  • Pac Mentality Week 12: Down goes Arizona State

    There has been a lot of talk about championships at Arizona State when it comes to football in recent weeks.
  • Pac Mentality Week 11: Another statement win for Arizona State, Oregon Ducks clinch North

    News and notes from Week 11 in the Pac-12.
  • Pac Mentality Week 10: Oregon Ducks navigate the Stanford hurdle

    There is very little doubt that the Oregon Ducks are superior to the Stanford Cardinal in 2014 in terms of talent. Then again, you could have made that argument in each of the last two seasons as well, but Stanford won each of those meetings between the two teams and went on to win the […]
  • Dry heat and football, that’s what Arizona does!

    Remember the flag football scene in Wedding Crashers? After Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson crash the wedding of Senator Cleary’s daughter, they score an invite back to the family compound in Maryland. “Crabcakes and football! That’s what Maryland does,” one of the participants yells in celebration of a touchdown pass. With the way things are […]
  • Pac Mentality Week 9: Utah Utes announce themselves as contenders

    The Utes are for real. Even those who were impressed by what Kyle Whittingham’s team had done before Saturday (myself included) were a little wary of what was on the horizon. After blowing a big lead at home to Washington State and then beating UCLA and Oregon State to start Pac-12 play, Utah would have […]
