  • Larry Scott's first gaffe as Pac-12 commissioner -- and it's a big one
    Vince Marotta | April 02, 2013 9:37 am
    If you know anything about me, you know I'm not a fan of the Arizona Wildcats -- in any sport. But also, I can recognize when something stinks, and well, after a report that surfaced Monday, I'm holding...
  • Root for Arizona? Not in this lifetime
    Vince Marotta | March 26, 2013 6:57 am
    The NCAA Tournament field has been reduced by 52 teams since play in this year's "Big Dance" started last Tuesday. And for the 15th time since 1976, the Arizona Wildcats are left standing as one of...

  • Kevin Kolb's divisive Arizona stint conjures Leinart flashbacks
    Vince Marotta | March 15, 2013 8:05 am
    So the Kevin Kolb era has come to an end in the Valley of the Sun -- if two injury-plagued seasons can constitute an era, that is. Give the Arizona Cardinals credit, though. Knowing they had to bring...
  • What's better, saying 'I told you so' or winning a ring?
    Vince Marotta | March 12, 2013 8:18 am
    Breaking news out of New York (although it really shouldn't qualify as breaking news at this point)...Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire is out at least six weeks because he needs more surgery on his right...
  • The 5: Best Cardinals of all-time
    Vince Marotta | March 11, 2013 7:41 am
    It sounds strange to refer to Adrian Wilson as a former Cardinals safety, but after 12 seasons, he's just that. The team and Wilson parted ways last Friday and now, like many great Cardinals before him,...
  • The 5: Most Underrated Sports Movies
    Vince Marotta | February 28, 2013 8:51 am
    So the Oscars are in the rear view mirror until next February, and judging from the lack of attention they got at this year's gala, 2012 wasn't a great year for sports movies. That hasn't always been...
  • The 5: Best sets of twins in sports
    Vince Marotta | February 22, 2013 3:51 pm
    So the Phoenix Suns have reunited the Morris twins, Markieff and Marcus, making them only the second set of twins to play on the same team at the same time in NBA history. The other? The Van Arsdales ...
  • Note to Cardinals: Beware the QBs in the first round
    Vince Marotta | February 12, 2013 11:07 am
    There are several questions concerning the future of the Arizona Cardinals, who are coming off an entirely forgettable 5-11 season. But there are two things we know: one, they have the seventh overall...
  • The sands in the Coyotes' hourglass may be running out
    Vince Marotta | February 01, 2013 3:29 pm
    I've always wanted to live in a really nice house. You know, like this Fountain Hills beauty that's currently...
  • People are talking about ASU basketball, and it's about time
    Vince Marotta | January 29, 2013 2:58 pm
    Exactly 349 days ago, the following was written about Herb Sendek and Arizona State basketball
  • Alvin Gentry gone, but he wasn't the problem
    Vince Marotta | January 18, 2013 10:49 am
    At the midway point of the 2012-13 season, the Phoenix Suns are 13-28, bad enough to be the worst team in the Western Conference. You know the old adage -- you can't fire all the players, so Friday,...
  • Michael Beasley isn't doing anybody any good on the bench
    Vince Marotta/Arizona Sports | January 09, 2013 2:38 pm
    In July of 2012, the Phoenix Suns continued the process of giving their roster a facelift and signed enigmatic forward Michael Beasley to a three-year, $18 million contract. The move was met with mixed...
  • My epiphany: Fantasy football is dumb
    Vince Marotta/Arizona Sports | December 17, 2012 4:57 pm
    I needed Bilal Powell of the New York Jets to amass 74 fantasy points Monday night against the Tennessee Titans to win my Fantasy Football league semifinal. That would roughly be 380 yards rushing/receiving...
  • Analyzing what gives Cardinals 'the best chance to win'
    Vince Marotta/Arizona Sports | December 02, 2012 2:07 pm
    As I watched (mostly through my fingers) the Arizona Cardinals lose their eighth straight game -- this one a 7-6 offensive debacle at the hands of the woeful New York Jets, a certain phrase kept rattling...
  • Cardinals' season was lost when Kevin Kolb went down
    Vince Marotta/Arizona Sports | November 26, 2012 4:09 pm
    Not that we have any historical basis to fall back on, but you'd think an NFL team that won its first four games and then proceeded to lose their next seven would have an unbelievable shift in statistics. In...
  • They're going streaking: Anatomy of ASU's losing skid
    Vince Marotta/Arizona Sports | November 12, 2012 1:54 pm
    Another trip to Los Angeles, another loss. The Arizona State Sun Devils' 38-17 loss to the 19th-ranked USC Trojans really shouldn't have come as a surprise. After all, it was the Devils' seventh straight...
  • This Cardinals team has me questioning everything
    Vince Marotta/Arizona Sports | October 29, 2012 9:33 pm
    GLENDALE -- How does a team who hadn't started a season with four straight wins since 1977 start 4-0 only to follow it up by losing their next four games? That's one of the myriad questions rattling...
  • ASU hurts themselves in painful loss to UCLA
    Vince Marotta/Arizona Sports | October 27, 2012 2:59 pm
    TEMPE -- The transformation that the Arizona State football team has undergone in 2012 has been remarkable. Sure the record looks a lot like it did just one year ago, but the team's effort and discipline...
  • ASU not quite ready for prime time, and that's okay
    Vince Marotta/Arizona Sports | October 18, 2012 9:13 pm
    TEMPE -- So, that didn't go very well. Arizona State had a chance on the big stage -- one shot, one opportunity -- and they ended up with a sweater full of mom's spaghetti. The well-oiled, chrome-helmeted...
