  • Dennis Erickson talks job security, desire to keep coaching

    To say Dennis Erickson’s seat is getting warm would be an understatement. Thought to be in line for a contract extension only a few weeks ago, the only line many want to see him in is the one with an “unemployment” sign hanging above. Tuesday Arizona Sports 620’s John Gambadoro, who wrote that it’s time […]
  • ASU players aware of coach’s hot seat

    It’s hard to ignore. “I’d be lying if I said we weren’t aware of it,” said quarterback Brock Osweiler. “Obviously you read things and you hear things,” added defensive lineman Bo Moos. What’s being read and what’s being heard is that their head coach is on the proverbial hot seat. Follow @theAdamGreen
  • Erickson on hot seat: ‘I can’t worry about that’

    In October it seemed like a foregone conclusion. Dennis Erickson would receive a contract extension at the end of the season. Now, as the calendar has flipped to November there’s a considerable amount of debate regarding an extension. Consecutive road losses to UCLA and Washington State has thrust Erickson’s future as the Sun Devils head […]
  • Sun Devils and Wildcats set to battle for 85th time

    When Arizona State and Arizona take the field Saturday at Sun Devil Stadium it will be the 85th time the teams have met in the “Duel in the Desert,” and the first since last season’s stunning 30-29 ASU win in double overtime. The Sun Devils reclaimed the oldest trophy in college football – the Territorial […]
  • Erickson on WSU loss: ‘Very, very, very, very disturbing’

    A couple of weeks ago it looked as if the Arizona State Sun Devils would cruise down the stretch of their schedule and head to the Pac-12 Championship Game as the representatives of the South and take on either Oregon or Stanford. For all intents and purposes, the “hard” part of the Sun Devils’ schedule […]
  • Missing: ASU’s pass defense

    Admit it. You were very comfortable with Arizona State traveling up to Pullman [the Timbuktu of the Pac-12] to take on a Cougars’ team that was circling the drain and had lost 5 straight games. Snow? No problem. Bring it on. There’s no way the Sun Devils will let something like a little frozen precipitation […]

  • ASU opens season with (close) win

    TEMPE, AZ — It got a little too close for comfort late in the 2nd half, but Herb Sendek’s Arizona State Sun Devils opened the 2011-12 season with a 78- 72 win over Montana State at Wells Fargo Arena. The free throw line was the Sun Devils’ best friend on Friday, as they connected on […]
  • Arizona State hoops is in ‘attack mode’

    It happened once all last year. In the regular season finale against Oregon State, ASU scored a season-high 80 points in an 80-66 win; just four times did the Sun Devils reach 75 points or more. This season — albeit in an exhibition game — ASU has already hit the 80-point mark. Last week, head […]
  • ASU to battle weather, Washington State

    It’s going to be cold. It may even snow. “I’m excited,” said quarterback Brock Osweiler. He may be the only one. Osweiler grew up in Kalispell, Montana about five hours from Pullman, Washington where—according to, it’s expected to be in the low 30s with a good chance of rain and show showers Saturday night […]
  • Sun Devils in the Palouse, and Week 11 in the Pac-12

    With the constant media blitz coming out of State College, Pennsylvania surrounding the Jerry Sandusky mess and Joe Paterno firing, actual football has been put on the back burner by many. Of course, not by everyone–most of the Penn State community puts football above everything else, including morality, but I digress. It’s another full slate […]
  • ESPN insider: Washington State is trap game for ASU

    This season ASU was finally living up to some hype, the sloppy, mistake-ridden team from the past long gone. The Sun Devils were in the driver’s seat in the Pac-12 South needing only to win out in order to play in the first Pac-12 championship. The road appeared to be smooth, with only UCLA, Washington […]
  • ASU’s Bo Moos wants a win, needs a sack vs. WSU

    Mike Marcisz was the first. He was the loudest. “Your face a little cold, Bo?” Then, one teammate after another started piling on. “I lost a bet,” the now shaven Bo Moos explained. The ASU senior defensive tackle needed four tackles, one for a loss against UCLA Saturday in order to keep his beard. He […]
  • Don’t expect to see Sun Devils make a change at kicker

    Arizona State kicker Alex Garoutte has had ups and downs in his first year with the team, though none of the downs were as low as the one he suffered Saturday against UCLA. Called upon three times for field goal attempts, the freshman missed all three — including a 46-yard attempt that would won the […]

  • ASU moves past UCLA defeat

    Disappointing. Gut-wrenching. That’s how ASU head coach Dennis Erickson described Saturday night’s 29-28 loss to UCLA. “We did not make plays when we had to,” he said Monday. Added quarterback Brock Osweiler, “I don’t know if you ever fully recover from a game like that. It’s something that definitely just takes time but it’s Monday. […]
  • Erickson: ‘I cost us 25 seconds’

    ASU had the ball at its own 24-yard line, down one and 42 seconds left on the clock. Brock Osweiler said they had plenty of time to move into field goal range for a possible game-winning kick. Dennis Erickson, however, said the Sun Devil offense should’ve had more time; and he blames himself for mismanaging […]
  • ASU (still) waiting on Jahii Carson

    The ASU basketball season begins Friday. The Sun Devils sixth season under head coach Herb Sendek tips off against Montana State; and yet, the biggest topic surrounding the program remains freshman point guard Jahii Carson. “I know the most frequently asked question these days is regarding Jahii’s status,” Sendek said Monday. “I’ll head you off […]
  • Sun Devils fall out of rankings

    Week four of the BCS standings were released on Sunday night, and the Arizona State Sun Devils were nowhere to be found following their disappointing 29-28 loss to UCLA on Saturday night.
