  • Cardinals are almost — but not yet — done

    The odds of the Arizona Cardinals reaching the playoffs after starting the season 1-4 are slim, to say the least. “Ninety-five percent of the teams that go 1-4 do not make the playoffs,” Arizona Sports 620’s Ron Wolfley said.

  • Beanie Wells feeling more comfortable in Cardinals offense

    PHOENIX – The Arizona Cardinals at 1-4 have gotten off to a disappointing start, but running back Beanie Wells is still having success this season.

  • Oregon dangerous with or without James

    He may play. He may not play. Either way, it may not matter. “They do what they do and they’ve got depth to do it,” said head coach Arizona State Dennis Erickson, “so you don’t treat it any different whether (LaMichael James) plays or whether he doesn’t.” Erickson also joined “Burns and Gambo” on Arizona […]
  • Sun Devils are due some midseason hardware

    It’s hard to believe, but we’re halfway through the college football season. Locally, the Arizona State Sun Devils are living up to expectations, and that hasn’t happened in a while.

  • Cardinals need young players to keep improving

    At 1-4, the Arizona Cardinals main goal is simple: improve. Some would argue it shouldn’t be too hard, given that the team can’t get any worse, but there are still 11 games left in the regular season and everyone would feel better if the team showed marked improvement over the season’s final few months. One […]
  • ESPN Insider says D-backs ‘better tinker’

  • Young core has D-backs looking forward to next season

    Despite the first round exit in the playoffs, the Diamondbacks at least showed they belonged there. The young core of players played the underdog role and surprised the entire league this season.

  • Mike Stoops out as Arizona coach

    It appears a road loss to previously winless Oregon State was enough to cost Mike Stoops his job. “We’re appreciative of Mike’s dedicated work for the Arizona Wildcats,” Arizona Athletic Director Greg Byrne said. “Coach Stoops had many successes as our head coach over the last eight seasons. It was a difficult decision but I […]
