  • ASU: How will team respond?

    Almost four weeks will have passed when ASU plays its next game, in the Las Vegas Bowl against Boise State.

Three days later the decision was made to fire head coach Dennis Erickson. The […]
  • He’s the Suns best recruiter of free agents

    If it’s not the first thing a new player says upon his arrival in Phoenix, then it’s most certainly the second thing out of their mouth. It was for Shannon Brown. “Get the chance to play with Steve Nash, one of the best guys to ever do it as far as giving the ball up.” […]
  • Nash doesn’t anticipate changing addresses

    There are certain stories in Phoenix that just won’t go away. Immigration controversy, the plight of the Phoenix Coyotes and rumors surrounding the future of Suns’ point guard Steve Nash have been prevalent for years.

  • Phoenix Suns get defensive

    It sounds simple. “You definitely want to keep the opposition’s score under yours.” The execution is not. “This stuff is not easy. Scoring is fun. Playing defense is hard.” New Suns assistant Elston Turner is here to try to make it a little easier with concepts proven to be successful over his 14 years as […]

  • Breaking down Cardinals’ playoff chances

    We know the Arizona Cardinals themselves aren’t focused on making a push for the playoffs. Heck, head coach Ken Whisenhunt said so himself on Monday. But that doesn’t mean I can’t look ahead to the Cardinals’ playoff possibilities, right? Seattle’s win over the St. Louis Rams on Monday night didn’t do the Cardinals any favors. […]
  • ASU searching for a new football coach

    Coaching change is in the air. Down south, at that institution folks in Tempe don’t like to talk about, there was a coaching change with former Michigan and West Virginia head man Rich Rodriguez taking over for the deposed Mike Stoops. Now, there’s unrest at Arizona State as well. The Sun Devils stumbled to a […]

  • Gentry, Suns considering resting players

    In a typical year an 82-game NBA season is played out over 170 days. This, however, is not a typical year. The Suns will play 66 games in 122 days, starting the day after Christmas. “You’ve got to embrace (the schedule) and just try to do the best you can to take care of yourself,” […]
  • Coach Whisenhunt knows Fitz is something special

    It was just another day in the office for Larry Fitzgerald Sunday against the 49ers. His seven catches for 149 yards pushed him over the 1,000 yard mark for sixth time in his career, a new franchise record. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt knows with Fitz, it’s the intangibles that make him special. “You’re almost running […]

  • Larry Fitzgerald keeps making plays, impressing all who watch

    This just in: Larry Fitzgerald is pretty good. The Cardinal continued his impressive 2011 with seven catches for 149 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s win over the 49ers, putting his season totals at 62 receptions for 1,092 yards and seven scores. All this with shaky QB play and defenses doing everything they can to […]
  • Familiarity may help Suns

    The NBA season begins in 14 days. The first pre-season game is in eight days. Suns training camp is now in its third day. In other words, there isn’t a lot of time to get ready. With the season not starting on time because of the lockout, teams are re-evaluating what they had hoped to […]
  • Cardinals are aware, but not focused on playoff push

    It seems almost surreal that on December 12th, there is even a slight connection between the Arizona Cardinals and the word ‘playoffs’, but there is. With five wins in their last six games, the Cardinals are in the NFC playoff picture at 6-7 and three games remaining on their schedule. But wisely, head coach Ken […]

  • Cardinals using 2011 to build for 2012 and beyond

    The assembled media was in the press conference room, waiting for Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt but watching the end of the Broncos game against the Bears. Tim Tebow, of course, was in the process of leading his team to its sixth win in a row and seventh in the last eight games. Impressive turnaround, sure, […]
  • Babby, Suns had to work to get Grant Hill back

    There’s normally not a lot of interest in 39-year-old free agents in the National Basketball Association. Consider Grant Hill an exception to that “rule”.
