  • 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, […]
  • Behind Enemy Lines – Rams head to Arizona

    Be honest. Even though the Cardinals had limped to a 1-5 start, you still had this Sunday’s game with the St. Louis Rams circled on your pocket schedule as a win. After all, the Rams were winless, hapless and clueless. There’s no way the Cardinals would lose a home game to the Lambs, right? Then […]
  • Skelton looking forward to gaining more experience

    It sounds like Arizona Cardinals backup quarterback John Skelton is getting the start on Sunday. “Anytime you get NFL experience, it’s always valuable in the end,” Skelton said. “The four games I got last year, all they can do is prepare me for this year and it’s my first start of the year, but I […]
  • Ken Whisenhunt: John Skelton is a ready replacement for Kevin Kolb

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb may be battling a turf toe injury, but head coach Ken Whisenhunt has confidence in backup John Skelton should he need to start on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. “Last year, he didn’t have any reps, hardly, in preseason and he didn’t do anything during the season and then […]
  • Channing Frye: ‘This whole situation’s very weird’

    The Phoenix Suns were supposed to open their season Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder, but instead the US Airways Center was like every other NBA arena: empty. Players and owners are still trying to reach a deal on a new collective bargaining agreement, and until they do the NBA’s lockout will continue. And […]
  • ASU to face “talented” UCLA team

    So, which UCLA team will ASU face Saturday? Will it be the team that allowed 48 points and lost by 36 to U of A? Or. Will it be the team that scored 31 points and beat Cal by 17? Sun Devil head coach Dennis Erickson is betting on the latter. “UCLA has a lot […]
  • Gibson, Towers get contract extensions from D-backs

    The Arizona Diamondbacks announced on Thursday that they’ve extended the contracts of field manager Kirk Gibson and general manager Kevin Towers.

  • QB controversy brewing with Cardinals?

    Kevin Kolb has struggled so far as the starting quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals. The team has a 1-6 record and Kolb’s 77.8 quarterback rating ranks 24th in the league.

  • Another opponent comments on Burfict

    Leading up to their game against Arizona State on September 24th, several members of the USC Trojans were asked about facing feared Sun Devil linebacker Vontaze Burfict. They didn’t hold their tongues. “I’ll drill him,” offensive tackle Matt Kalil said. Quarterback Matt Barkley referred to Burfict as a “dirty player”–a tactic that drew a reprimand […]
  • Another year of rooting for chaos

    I love college football. I love the traditions, the pageantry. I love the emotional connection fans of a given program have to their team. I love the fact that on any Saturday from September to November, you can lose yourself in dozens of games telecast over a dozen hours. So why is it every year […]
  • Should Andrew Luck be the choice IF the Cardinals get top pick?

    With the Arizona Cardinals at 1-6 and losers of six straight, you almost have to mention the possibility that the team that could end up with the No. 1 overall pick come next April. Under the assumption Andrew Luck puts his name in the draft, he’ll be the favorite to be taken with that selection. […]
  • Skelton’s experience would help him Sunday

    The first time John Skelton saw action in a regular season NFL game was at University of Phoenix Stadium against the St. Louis Rams. A fifth-round pick out of Fordham, the rookie entered the game when both Derek Anderson and Max Hall went down with injuries. Skelton completed three of six passes for 45 yards […]
  • Kolb doesn’t practice, but making progress

    Despite missing practice on Wednesday, the report from Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt is that Kevin Kolb continues to make progress on his turf-toe injury.

  • Familiarity will help Skelton if called upon

    With Kevin Kolb still battling turf-toe and sitting out of practice, the likelihood of backup John Skelton starting on Sunday seems to be growing. If that is the case for the Cardinals, they will at least bring in a backup who already has some experience within the offensive system. “He played well for us down […]
  • D-backs come to terms with free agent McDonald

    The Arizona Diamondbacks announced on Wednesday that they have agreed to terms with infielder John McDonald on a two-year contract.

  • Suns open season with impressive win over Thunder

    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 […]
  • What if Skelton plays and outshines Kolb?

    When the Cardinals traded away a starting cornerback and a second round pick for Kevin Kolb, the days of the backup quarterback being the most popular player on the team were supposed to be over. But a turf-toe injury has prevented Kevin Kolb from practicing, and the QB may find himself watching the game from […]
  • Justin Upton, Daniel Hudson win Silver Slugger awards

    The Diamondbacks keep collecting post-season hardware.

Kevin Kolb is fighting a turf toe injury, Beanie […]
