WM Open Different Look, ASU Football Questions/Answers

Arizona Sports News online

You would think that a 70-7 pasting over the arch-rival would be enough to pacify Arizona State football fans for an offseason, but if I’m to believe my inbox (which I do),  there’s a sense of nervousness in the air. 

I was in total agreement with Herm Edwards’ decision to pass on a bowl game. I have no problem with Frank Darby leaving for the NFL or Scottie Graham accepting a coaching position gig with U of A.

Marvin Lewis being interviewed for NFL jobs is to be expected. He’s been a head coach in the league. However, I have to wonder if some teams aren’t bringing him in just to satisfy the Rooney Rule. Yes, Jayden Daniels is likely to leave after next season, but he has plenty to prove to the NFL in 2021…

Tyler Shough will be better off in his football career or whatever he does after his playing days are over, for going through the Fiesta Bowl experience of being on a coaching yo-yo. I’m not saying I agree with how the former Hamilton quarterback was used last Saturday, I’m simply saying he’s strong enough to handle the adversity…

Brock Purdy was never considering turning pro after last Saturday’s Iowa State victory. Easy headline, easy click for lazy media. Another small failure by our industry…

Any day now Diamondbacks. Something? Anything?…

The Suns early-season success should continue over the next four days. Detroit, Indiana, and Washington between now and Monday night. At least two, if not three wins over the next four days…

I played in the Waste Management Open media event on Thursday. If you are one of the few that is fortunate enough to get into the event (only 6K fans per day), you’ll not see much, if anything on the 17th or 18th hole in the way of bleachers and corporate tents.

This is the year for the community to support Thunderbird Charities. They do A LOT in the community to put on “The Greatest Show on Grass”, but this year, they are going to take a hit. There will be no Bird’s Nest and very little happening on the grounds other than the players showing up to do their thing…
