  • Lipstick won't help cover gap between ASU and Stanford
    Doug Franz | September 21, 2013 8:23 pm
    Comebacks show character. They do not show if you're a good team or not. The only term that can be used is butt whooping. Arizona State is not close to the level Stanford is currently at. Was...

    Arizona Sports | September 21, 2013 11:37 am
    Arizona State may be facing its toughest opponent of the year today in No. 5 Stanford, and the No. 23 Sun Devils may also have to deal with a slippery, soggy field. Although it has rained in Palo...

  • Cry on, Wisconsin
    Doug Franz | September 16, 2013 4:53 pm
    When did the state of Wisconsin stop raising men? The amount of whining coming from Wisconsin is embarrassing. Anyone who blames officials for a loss can only be described by one word: "loser." I...

    Doug Franz | September 11, 2013 7:23 am

    Doug Franz | September 04, 2013 7:01 am

    Doug Franz | September 03, 2013 6:56 am
    After watching 17 college football games and five MLB games over the weekend, here are a few of my takeaways: 1) The D-backs are now 39-39 against teams below .500. The number would be worse if Washington...
  • Arizona State: Action is always the answer
    Doug Franz | August 30, 2013 9:16 am
    I hate fake enthusiasm. I love the simple phrase "keep it real." It's hard to be honest in sports to the public. You can't say the injuries of a college football player because the kid is also...
