  • Sun Devils fall out of rankings

    Week four of the BCS standings were released on Sunday night, and the Arizona State Sun Devils were nowhere to be found following their disappointing 29-28 loss to UCLA on Saturday night. ASU had been ranked 19th last week before falling completely out of the standings, which consider the USA Today Coaches’ Poll, the Harris […]
  • Special teams very special in Cards’ win

    I defy you to listen to any football coach following a game at any level, in victory or defeat, not mention the three phases of a football game. Offense, defense and special teams. If you fail in one of those three phases, your chances of winning are reduced considerably. However, if you excel in any […]
  • Hot shooting Suns get by Trail Blazers and win third straight

    The following article is not real. It is our best guess as to what would have happened had the NBA season actually started on time, playing every game on the 2011-12 schedule. Clearly that’s not the case, and every stat, quote or observation below never actually happened. But without REAL NBA basketball to talk about […]
  • Consecutive possessions result in safeties for Cardinals

    GLENDALE, Ariz. — While talk of one of the most memorable plays anyone has ever seen will be the 99-yard game winning punt return by Patrick Peterson, it cannot be forgotten that earlier in the game the Cardinals’ offense had a very rare and odd sequence of possessions. In the middle of the third quarter, […]
  • Cardinals defense bends but never breaks

    GLENDALE, Ariz. — To put it simply, the Arizona Cardinals defense did a lot of bending but never broke in their 19-13 overtime win against the St. Louis Rams. On paper the Cardinals defense had a rough day. Between the lines — where it counts — the Cardinals defense was strong and resilient. “I can’t […]
  • Patrick Peterson: Sunday’s star, rising star

    Most teams would not want to see their punt returner field a kick at the one yard line. Don’t fair catch it and certainly don’t try to return it. Then again, most teams don’t have Patrick Peterson. “You know, if you had asked me that eight weeks ago I would have said probably not,” Cardinals […]
  • Cardinals finally have something to celebrate with win over Rams

    For the first time since Week 1, fans leaving University of Phoenix Stadium did so with smiles on their faces. Their joy, while measurable, paled in comparison to how the Cardinals reacted in their locker room, 19-13 winners over the St. Louis Rams. The cheers could be heard from a couple rooms away. Sure, in […]

  • DDB: Notes from Friday’s practice and more

    GLENDALE – After back-to-back games on Wednesday and Thursday nights, the Coyotes held an optional skate on Friday at the Ice Den in Scottsdale. About one-third of the players skated. Among those on the ice was newcomer Cal O’Reilly, who is expected to make his debut with the Coyotes on Saturday night vs. Edmonton. Phoenix […]
  • It’s ‘night and day’ for John Skelton

    As the Cardinals prepare to welcome the 1-6 Rams to Glendale, it’s beginning to become clear who the starting quarterback will be: John Skelton. Starting QB Kevin Kolb suffered a turf toe injury in the loss to the Ravens and is listed as doubtful for Sunday after not practicing all week. Even though no official […]
  • ESPN analyst says Devils should have no trouble with Bruins

    When the college football season first kicked off some thought Saturday’s UCLA vs. ASU matchup would determine the winner of the Pac-12 South. Those people aren’t wrong, necessarily, but it’s hard to really say they’re right. While ASU has finally lived up to the hype, UCLA has fallen flat on its face. UCLA currently stands […]

  • Grand Canyon students pumped for ASU exhibition

    Saturday night Herb Sendek’s Arizona State Sun Devils are playing a game in the Valley, and they’ll undoubtedly be the visitors. The Devils will bus over to Central Phoenix to visit the Grand Canyon Antelopes, a Division II team coached by former ASU assistant and radio broadcaster Russ Pennell, in an exhibition game to prepare […]
  • We’ll always have November 4, 2001

    It’s November 4, 2011–the ten-year anniversary of the Arizona Diamondbacks shocking the baseball world and beating the juggernaut three-time defending World Series champion New York Yankees in a 7-game series that will go down in history as one of the best ever played. If you’re a Diamondbacks fan, you remember the thrill when Luis Gonzalez’s […]
  • 10 years later, Diamondbacks win over Yankees is still the best

    My career as a sports fan peaked 10 years ago, on November 4, 2011. That was the day my dad and I decided against going to Sun Devil Stadium to watch this abomination of an “NFL game”, instead deciding the game downtown was more important. You know, Game 7 of the 2001 World Series. Indeed, […]
  • GCU opens new arena vs. ASU

    It’s just an exhibition. It doesn’t count. Sure, try telling that to the students at Grand Canyon University. “Man, everybody is excited,” said Antelopes senior point guard Kyle Speed. “It’s almost like the rest of the season doesn’t even exist.” Added head coach Russ Pennell on the buzz around campus, “This is the Super Bowl, […]
