  • John Skelton vs. Tim Tebow: By the numbers

    All they do is win. While Tim Tebow gets the national attention, Arizona’s John Skelton has also done a good job winning games while not looking impressive in the process. The second-year pro’s knack for fourth quarter heroics even got teammate Larry Fitzgerald to compare him to Denver’s QB, saying “Everybody talks about Tim Tebow […]
  • Tough stretch could be a teacher for ASU

    The 2011-12 season hasn’t gone so well for Arizona State basketball, and that’s an understatement. The Sun Devils are 4-7, their worst start in 26 years. Their prized freshman recruit, point guard Jahii Carson, has been ruled academically ineligible for the entire season by the NCAA. They’ve lost two straight games on last-second three- pointers. […]
  • Another heartbreaking loss for ASU

    TEMPE, AZ — If you’re a basketball fan, and you like buzzer beaters, you should probably get down to Wells Fargo Arena in Tempe. Southern Mississippi senior Darnell Dodson canned a three- pointer as the buzzer sounded lifting the Golden Eagles to a 64-61 win over the Arizona State Sun Devils on Monday night. It […]
  • Cardinals ‘one-game-at-a-time’ approach working

    As sports fans, we’ve all heard the phrase “one game at a time” before. It’s a staple in sports, a go-to line for coaches and athletes. But head coach Ken Whisenhunt says this Arizona Cardinals team had to focus on “one game at a time” when they were sitting at 1-6 — otherwise it would’ve […]
  • ESPN writer: Suns had a rough offseason

    The Phoenix Suns didn’t do much to overhaul their roster in the shortened offseason, with their key moves being the re-signing of Grant Hill, drafting of Markieff Morris and signings of Shannon Brown, Ronnie Price and Sebastian Telfair. It is those moves — and the lack of any other — that led ESPN’s Chad Ford […]
  • Junior Onyeali suspended for ASU bowl game

    The Arizona State Sun Devils will be without the services of sophomore defensive end Junior Onyeali for the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas against 6th-ranked Boise State on Thursday night.

  • Report: Miles’ status up in air for Maaco Bowl Las Vegas

    The Arizona State Sun Devils are just days away from taking part in their first bowl game since 2007, but there’s a possibility that they won’t have their full complement of players against Boise State on Thursday night. ASUDevils.com has reported that junior do-everything player Jamal Miles could miss the bowl game for disciplinary reasons. […]
  • Cardinals quarterback controversy just won’t go away

    Of the Arizona Cardinals’ seven wins this season, John Skelton has been the quarterback of note in five of them. Skelton’s lone loss came November 20th at San Francisco, a game where he completed just 6 of 19 passes for 99 yards and three interceptions. Since then the second-year pro has completed 59 of 97 […]
  • Paulie Pigskin’s Sideline Report: Cards beat Browns

    As I flip thru my Paulie Pigskin Official Sideline Reporter Notebook, here’s a Sawed Off Shotgun of Scribblings… “Big Red” Skelton – More with Less: The coaches call it “poise.” They say that John Skelton has it. An abundance of it. And, during our postgame radio interview, Todd Heap admitted that he can’t get over […]
  • Marcin Gortat: ‘I would like to make another step forward’

    In just over half a season in Phoenix, Marcin Gortat surpassed a lot of what he had accomplished in a little over three seasons with Orlando. The list includes more points, more points per game, more rebounds per game and more blocks per game. He also set several Suns single-season marks with the number of […]
  • Your team not in a bowl? Make up your own

    Bowl season is underway in college football. You know, that time of year where mediocrity is rewarded and seemingly every day of the calendar for three-plus weeks is dotted with ho-hum matchups between teams you probably didn’t watch during the regular season. Thirty-five bowl games are currently in existence. That means 70 of 120 FBS […]
  • Can you see it? The Arizona Cardinals are growing

    Can you see it? Over in Glendale (and, most of the time Tempe), the Arizona Cardinals are growing. The seeds were planted in the offseason, when the team hired Ray Horton to run the defense and decided to enter the season with promising youth rather than established veterans at many key positions. A 1-6 start […]
  • We’re going streaking! Cards’ 4-game streak a rarity

    A four-game winning streak in the NFL doesn’t seem like a big deal, but when you consider that four games is one- quarter of a team’s regular season, it definitely is a distinct accomplishment. For the Arizona Cardinals, that distinct accomplishment has been a very rare one. Ken Whisenhunt’s team won their fourth straight by […]
  • D-backs sign OF Jason Kubel

    The Arizona Diamondbacks continued their roster tweaking on Monday, signing free agent outfielder Jason Kubel to a two- year contract. Kubel, is a 29-year-old left-handed hitter, who has spent his entire career with the Minnesota Twins who drafted him in the 12th round of the 2000 amateur draft. Last season, Kubel hit .273 with 12 […]
  • ASU’s Graham makes good first impression with players

    The meeting wasn’t very long. New head coach Todd Graham didn’t want to be a distraction. His just-introduced-to players remain focused on preparing for Boise State and the Las Vegas Bowl, in what will be the final game under the previous coaching regime. Graham, though, did want to at least let his new team know […]
  • Osweiler appreciative of Erickson, Mazzone

    It isn’t the easiest of situations, welcoming in one new coaching staff while continuing to work with a soon-to-be departing coaching staff. Brock Osweiler though has tried to make the best of it. “We’ve had a lot of fun,” he said following practice Sunday, a day before the team was to leave for Las Vegas. […]
  • Cardinals defense recovers from slow start in win over Browns

    Glendale, Ariz. — The Cardinals have four games in a row, and six of their last seven. In that time the defense has morphed from a group that anyone could score on to one that gets key stops whenever it needs them. Sunday was no different. The Browns took a 17-7 lead on a 76-yard […]
  • Turnover drought ends at good time for Cardinals

    GLENDALE, AZ — For as well as the Arizona Cardinals’ defense has been playing as of late, there’s one area where they’ve been deficient — forcing turnovers. Arizona opponents had run 227 straight plays without turning the ball over, a streak that dated back to the 3rd quarter of the Cardinals’ 23-20 win over the […]
