  • The Finale: Week 13 in the Pac-12

    I’ve been previewing and predicting the outcomes of games in the Pac-10/Pac-12 for the last few years, and things have pretty much gone according to plan on a week-to-week basis. That hasn’t been the case this year, as evidenced by back- to-back weeks of going 3-3 on my picks. Since debuting this feature upon my […]
  • Lisa Love says expectations for ASU not out of hand

  • ASU football searching for answers

    The reasons for ASU’s three-game losing streak are clear: poor tackling, poor defending, poor offensive execution — particularly in the red zone.
