  • Sun Devils improve, but fall short to New Mexico

    After losing in ugly fashion to Pepperdine on Tuesday night, ASU head coach Herb Sendek talked about needing to improve in a lot of different areas if his team wanted to have a chance to beat New Mexico on Friday night. There was improvement, but not enough as the Sun Devils fell to New Mexico […]
  • Cardinals can’t just focus on one area of 49ers offense

    Sunday’s matchup against the San Francisco 49ers will probably be one of the Cardinals’ toughest games this season. The Cardinals have momentum, rolling off two straight wins, but the team has to travel to San Francisco to take on the seventh-ranked offense and first-ranked defense of the 49ers. The Niners’ offense has come alive under […]
  • Cardinals finally figuring out their own defense

    The defense hasn’t been completely dismal in defensive coordinator Ray Horton’s first season, but small mistakes here and there helped add up to six consecutive losses. That, however, seems to be changing, with the Cardinals rolling off two straight wins, both of which the defense played a key role. Against the Rams, the Cardinals forced […]
  • Sunday could be an ‘audition’ for Skelton

    This so-called quarterback controversy for the Arizona Cardinals won’t go away. And while it’s not as widespread as say, Team Edward vs. Team Jacob, the Kolb vs. Skelton argument has been an intriguing one in the Valley for the last three weeks. Let me lay my cards on the table: I’m a Kolb guy. Okay, […]
  • Vontaze Burfict, 15th-best draft prospect?

    Vontaze Burfict’s junior season at Arizona State has been much like the rest of his career: up and down and filled with what ifs. What if Burfict didn’t limp off the field every time he made a mistake? What if he wasn’t going at it with the officiating crew every game? What if he didn’t […]
  • Duel in the Desert -Breaking down the matchups

    The Duel in the Desert, the Territorial Cup, the rivalry, the game: Arizona State vs. Arizona. The 85th meeting between the schools is upon us, as the Wildcats travel north to take on the Sun Devils in Tempe. The Wildcats are basically playing for pride, as their season has gone horribly wrong. The Sun Devils […]
  • UA Hoops: Experience trumped youth in NY

    It is a common thought that New York represents a certain culture of grittiness and toughness. The Arizona Wildcats had to capture some of that toughness to overcome a partisan crowd at Madison Square Garden in the backyard of their opponent, the St. John’s University Red Storm, whom they defeated 81-72. Out of the gates […]
  • Skelton preparing differently with starter title

    Being named the started clearly had an impact on Arizona Cardinals backup quarterback John Skelton, who has won two straight games under the center. But what is he doing differently to prepare as a starter? “It’s a lot more involved,” Skelton said on Arizona Sports 620’s Big Red Rage show Thursday. “You try tell yourself […]
  • ESPN insider leaves Kennedy off Cy Young ballot

    Sure, few besides maybe the most die-hard Diamondbacks fan thought Ian Kennedy deserved the NL Cy Young award this year. After all, Los Angeles Dodger Clayton Kershaw led the league in ERA, strikeouts, WHIP and wins. However, most would have figured the D-backs ace, who tied Kershaw with 21 victories, had the best winning percentage […]

  • ESPN MLB insider: D-backs don’t need Bloomquist

    The Diamondbacks made a few moves over the last couple of weeks, agreeing to contracts with John McDonald, Willie Bloomquist and Aaron Hill. Combined with the return of Stephen Drew, it would appear Arizona’s infield will be rather crowded. That fact was not lost on ESPN MLB insider Keith Law, who told Arizona Sports 620’s […]
  • Gibson hopeful Diamondbacks won’t change much

    Kirk Gibson won the NL Manager of the Year award by getting a group of players to seemingly play above their capabilities. Maybe not surprisingly, he’d like to see the team remain mostly unchanged when Spring Training begins in a few months. “Philosophically, what we tried to do, I think we believe that we want […]
  • Kennedy finishes fourth in NL Cy Young

    Arizona Diamondbacks’ right-hander Ian Kennedy finished fourth in the balloting for the National League Cy Young Award, as announced Thursday by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Los Angeles lefty Clayton Kershaw took home the award, while Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee finished 2nd and 3rd, respectively. Kennedy, in just his second year with […]
  • Skelton continues to impress ESPN’s Ron Jaworski

    The Cardinals may not have a QB controversy, but they certainly have something to think about. “When you see a guy in only his second year and the inexperience that John has,” ESPN’s Ron Jaworski told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo, “to make some of the plays he made – tremendous.” Jaworski, who said […]
  • Suns’ Brooks headed to China

    According to various reports, including one by Yahoo! Sports NBA writer Adrian Wojnarowski, Phoenix Suns point guard Aaron Brooks has signed a one-year deal to play basketball in China. The deal, with Guandong of the Chinese Basketball Association, is believed to be worth north of $2 million and does not include a opt-out clause that […]
  • Frustrated by injury, Kolb is nearing return

    Kevin Kolb is tired of being injured. He’s tired of being unable to practice with his team and wants to get back on the field. “I didn’t expect to take this long,” he said of the recovery. “My injuries have either been a broken bone or the concussion, which is pretty straightforward on the recovery […]
  • The Territorial Cup and Week 12 in the Pac-12

    Another week is upon us in the Pac-12, and hopefully it’s a week of redemption personally. I went a woeful 3-3 on conference predictions in this space last week (thanks ASU), and it’s time to bounce back. It’s another full slate of games, including two installments of natural rivalries. So let’s dive in to Week […]
  • Jake Plummer reflects on Pat Tillman

    Former Sun Devil and Cardinals quarterback Jake Plummer spent a lot of time playing football with the late Pat Tillman, but it is the memories and lessons off the field that make Plummer think back to his close friend. Plummer shared his thoughts on Tillman with Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf. “I think about […]
  • Jake Plummer got tired of the NFL, content with new life

    Jake Plummer had a 10-year NFL career, one that saw him experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. As a Cardinal, Plummer guided the team to the playoffs in 1998, the team’s first postseason birth since moving to the desert. His career with the Cardinals lasted another four years, but he did […]
  • Rookie Sam Acho grasps new scheme, sees results

    Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton’s new scheme is known as complicated and difficult to learn. Lucky for rookie linebacker Sam Acho, he is probably one of the smartest players on the team. The fourth-round draft pick out of University of Texas holds a business honors major as well a marketing major. Needless to say, […]
