  • Petersen turns down Wildcats head coaching job

    And the search continues. Current Boise State football head coach Chris Petersen was favored to become the new head coach of the Arizona Wildcats, but he apparently has removed himself from consideration. “I heard that Chris Peterson of Boise State said no on the UofA job. Mike Bellotti is no on the clock and I […]
  • Coyotes re-acquire forward Brett MacLean on waivers

    The Phoenix Coyotes have re-acquired forward Brett MacLean on waivers from the Winnipeg Jets. MacLean was placed on waivers by the Coyotes on Oct. 5 and claimed by the Jets. He played in five games for the Jets, notching two assists and two penalty minutes. Last season with the Coyotes, MacLean recorded two goals and […]
  • ‘Yotes pick up O’Reilly from Nashville

    The Phoenix Coyotes swung a trade on Friday, acquiring center Cal O’Reilly from the Nashville Predators in exchange for a fourth round pick in the 2012 Entry Draft. O’Reilly, a 25-year-old Toronto native, was originally a 5th-round pick of the Predators in 2005 (150th overall selection). He made his NHL debut in the 2008-09 season, […]
  • Cardinals prepare for Baltimore’s passing attack

    Cardinals fans should be familiar with one of the Ravens top two receivers, but one they may not know could pose just as much of a challenge. Anquan Boldin — the receiver fans should know — and Torrey Smith are the Ravens’ top two targets this season. Each play a different style that could potentially […]
  • More NBA games canceled; no chance for full season

    Remember all that talk about optimism regarding the NBA labor talks in New York? Forget about it now. Talks broke off between the two sides on Friday, as there was reportedly no movement on the BRI (basketball related income) split. Players, who received 57% of BRI in the last collective bargaining agreement, wouldn’t concede to […]
  • Arizona picked to finish third in the Pac-12

    The Arizona Wildcats, winners of the Pac-10 last season, have been picked to finish third this season in the Pac-12 in a poll of media members who cover the conference. The Wildcats pulled in 11 first place votes, but the loss of Derrick Williams, Momo Jones and Jamelle Horne was enough to vault UCLA and […]
  • Cardinals defense not taking Ravens offense lightly

    Don’t worry if you missed Monday night’s matchup featuring the Ravens and Jaguars because, well, you didn’t miss much. Simply put, the game wasn’t exactly a gridiron classic. The contest featured one touchdown, four field goals and a final score of 12-7 in favor of the Jaguars. The Ravens offense looked dismal Monday night, finishing […]
  • Sun Devils picked 9th in Pac-12

    Scribes who cover the Pac-12 have tabbed the Arizona State Sun Devils to finish 9th in the conference in a preseason poll released Friday morning from Pac-12 Media Day in Los Angeles.

  • Diamondbacks lose Dipoto to the Angels

    Jerry Dipoto did an excellent job as the Diamondbacks’ interim GM in 2010, orchestrating deals that landed the team Daniel Hudson and Tyler Skaggs, among others. Once Kevin Towers was hired it was only a matter of time before Dipoto would leave the team to run a different organization, and it appears that time has […]
  • Heap thanks fans in Baltimore

    Arizona Cardinals tight end Todd Heap may not play Sunday in Baltimore, a city where he spent the first ten years of his career. But that fact didn’t stop Heap from delivering a heartfelt thank you to the fans that bellowed “Heeeeeeaaappp” every time he caught a ball at M&T Bank Stadium. Heap purchased a […]
  • Off the Ice: Kyle Turris’ impact on the domino effect

    Dominoes are fun. I remember, as a kid, pushing them all over to watch them fall in a neat little line, the momentary chaos making all the hard work of placing each one just right completely worth the trouble. Into my adult years, I still enjoy a sweet YouTube clip of a domino setup, but […]
  • Young LBs starting to catch on

    The Arizona Cardinals’ defensive depth chart features one of the oldest linebacking units in the league. Starters Joey Porter, Clark Haggans and Paris Lenon are all 34 years of age. Lenon leads the team with 38 total tackles, but Porter and Haggans, who are called upon to provide a pass rush in Ray Horton’s 3-4 […]
  • Peterson is one of a few struggling first round picks

    The Cardinals secondary has been a sore spot so far this season, which was to be expected with the amount of youth being forced to play. However, most probably expected first-round pick Patrick Peterson to be a little better than he has, as the fifth- overall selection has recorded 32 tackles and one interception while […]
  • ASU with an easy(?) test against Colorado

    On paper it would appear #21 ASU should have little trouble against Colorado. The Buffaloes are 1-7 and 0-4 in their first year of PAC- 12 play. They have lost five straight, six straight against ranked teams and 21 straight away from home. In addition, Colorado has lost 11 regulars in its two deep—including six […]
  • Jaworski on Cardinals: ‘It’s either poor coaching or dumb players’

    When an NFL team starts a season 1-5, there’s plenty of blame to be spread around. Fans have mostly sprinkled that blame among the quarterback, the offensive line, the coaching, the lack of pass rush and the play of the secondary. ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Ron Jaworski breaks it down in an even more […]
  • Dockett sounds off? Cardinal talks defense

    Darnell Dockett is not having a particularly good season. A Pro Bowl talent, Dockett has recorded just 18 tackles and half a sack this season, failing to really make any kind of impact that would show up on the stat sheet. While some have argued Dockett’s play can be attributed to the contract extension he […]
  • DDB: Doan Would Trade Milestones for Wins

    GLENDALE – When it comes to talking about milestones, Coyotes captain Shane prefers to talk about other people’s rather than his. I learned this a long time ago, but it was underlined for me after practice today when I tried to speak to Doan about how he scored his 300th NHL goal on Tuesday night […]
  • Upton named NL All-Star by Sporting News

    The honors continue to pour in for Arizona Diamondbacks’ right fielder Justin Upton, who Thursday was named to the Sporting News National League All- Star team . Upton’s 31 home runs and 88 runs batted in led the Diamondbacks, who won the fifth division title in their 14- year history and lost in the NLCS […]
  • LeBron James hoping for Steve Nash to join him in Miami?

    Last offseason LeBron James was able to convince Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade to join him in Miami. Will Steve Nash be next? James, who is either bored, playing GM or both, sent out a tweet Thursday that got the NBA world abuzz. Maybe @SteveNash in a Heat uni! So we can help each other […]
