Looking towards 2012 in Arizona sports

Dec 29, 2011, 4:44 AM | Updated: Jun 8, 2012, 4:40 pm

With 2011 all but wrapped up I’m going to look forward
to 2012. No looking back on the year that was.

If you want
to do that we have the Top 25 AZ Sports Stories
of
2011
that have done a fantastic job sorting
through
the 2011 sports year for Arizona.

I see a bright future for Arizona in 2012 except when it
comes to the Sun(s) Devils on the hardwood.

Anticipation on the gridiron, anxiousness on the ice and
ambition on the diamond.

My optimism sees a few successful rides in the desert.

Below is what I’m looking forward to in 2012 along with my
expectations with each team.

Arizona State needs to button it up

Arizona and Arizona State will go into the 2012 season with new head coaches. Arizona found their guy and Arizona State is still searching for theirs. Arizona’s search was for the most part quiet. The public has been given a play-by-play of Arizona State’s and it hasn’t been exactly what they want to hear. On […]

Arizona Wildcat fans should be especially thankful this Thanksgiving week.

Arizona State fans need to let the season play out

Whoa. What a difference six weeks makes. Dennis Erickson woke up on the morning of September 25 with a 3-1 record (1-0 in conference) after they had just beat No. 23 ranked USC 43-22. They ran away with the game in outscoring USC 15-0 in the final quarter. It was the first time the Sun […]

Paterno firing was right thing, now let’s get back to real issue

Effective immediately Joe Paterno is out as football coach at Penn St. This is not about football. This is not about anything being good. If anything, it’s bad. Terribly bad. This is not a celebration. This is sad. This is the Penn St. Board of Trustees doing the right thing. I am expecting and hoping […]

No matter what the Cardinals shouldn’t be in the Luck Sweepstakes

The Arizona Cardinals, with a current record of 1-6, unfortunately have to be mentioned as a team that could possibly end up with the No. 1 overall pick come draft time in April. With the first pick comes expectations and millions of people having their idea on who that pick should be. This year it […]
