Doug & Wolf

  • Of mice and ideology

    The AFC Championship Game is shaping up to be a philosophical clash of Biblical proportions. Unlike last week, where the New England Patriots played the role of Goliath against Tim Tebow’s David, this championship game has analysts/ideologues debating an old pigskin proverb: does defense really win championships? If defense wins championships then the Baltimore Ravens […]
  • Giants have ingredients to cook an upset in GB

    The Green Bay Packers are the best football team in the National Football League. But if there’s one team in the NFC that is uniquely skilled to defeat the Packers on the hallowed grounds of Lambeau Field, it’s the Giants. Beating the Packers at home in January is like trying to jam four pounds of […]
  • Rich Rod’s band of BCS brothers

    Rich Rodriguez is getting the band back together. Although none of the band members play an instrument, they are adept at building average college football programs into contenders. They are coaches that blow whistles instead of trumpets and scream instructions instead of lyrics. They are a band of coaching brothers that have produced gold records […]
  • Herb deserves respect, but what’s wrong with ASU hoops?

    If you look at a crystal ball in the hopes seeing the future of ASU basketball, it would be too cloudy for even the most experienced fortune teller to see. The recent past is something that most ASU fans would shield their eyes from or violently turn away. ASU head coach Herb Sendek dismissed Keala […]
  • What I think about the ASU coaching search

    I think ASU hated firing Dennis Erickson but knew they had to as soon as the UofA game ended. I think this season cost ASU a chance at a 5 year window of divisional dominance and a chance at multiple Rose Bowls in a small amount of time. I think If Vontaze Burfict had the […]
  • It’s time at ASU, but for what is undecided

    It’s time. That was the slogan for this season at ASU. It’s time. With one game remaining on the schedule, I have a follow- up question. It’s time for what? Every person that has anything invested into the 2011 season is disappointed. Every player, every coach, every fan and every administrator knows there were massive […]
  • Doug Franz College Football Power Poll: Week 5

    The week 5 standings are out for the BCS. In case you don’t know from the things I’ve said on air. I want a playoff in college football but I don’t have a problem with the BCS formula. I just don’t want it used to narrow the field from 120 to 2. I have yet […]
  • Doug’s Mailbag: ASU fans lack passion

    Doug, my disgust over the debacle in Pasadena compelled me to chime in. I’m concerned about the state of the ASU football program in a big way. When you say that 9-3 would be a “great” season for this program, it reinforces my concern. You are content with mediocrity, meaning that anything better than 7 […]
  • Doug Franz College Football Power Poll: Week 4

  • Small pieces add up to big loss for ASU

    Some cuss all the way down the tunnel like something they had earned has been taken away illegally. Some sit at their lockers staring blankly at the grain of the wood, assuming if their jersey stays on there is still one last play. Some undress quickly with great force to show their shoulder pads who’s […]
  • Doug Franz College Football Power Poll: Week 3

    The week 3 standings are out for the BCS. In case you don’t know from the things I’ve said on air. I want a playoff in college football but I don’t have a problem with the BCS formula. I just don’t want it used to narrow the field from 120 to 2. I have yet […]
  • Better fans worth $1 million

    Hard to outscore an opponent 48-14 and lose but that’s what happened to Arizona State Saturday afternoon. ASU might have lost $1 million dollars on Saturday despite playing one of their most complete games of the season. Keep in mind, the Devils lost nothing on the field. The amazing run of turnovers is still alive. […]
  • Doug Franz College Football Power Poll: Week 2

    The week 2 standings are out for the BCS. In case you don’t know from the things I’ve said on air. I want a playoff in college football but I don’t have a problem with the BCS formula. I just don’t want it used to narrow the field from 120 to 2. I have yet […]
