Then we dive into a team-by-team look at how the Pac-12 will shape up this fall, before we give our conference and national predictions. Plus, we go acro...
Herm Edwards and Arizona State faced the press for the first time since the NCAA's investigation first began. Along with the recent placement of an assistant coach on administrative leave, conference realignment and more, we discuss the implications live from Pac-12 Media Day with Hod Rabino of DevilsDigest.com.
There may not be a more decorated former Sun Devil—in any sport—than Mike Haynes.
All-American. Pro Bowler. All-Pro. Super Bowl champion. College AND Pro Football Hall of Famer. His number is retired at Arizona State, and his high school named their stadium after him. He is, without question, one of the all-time greats of the all-time greats...but a career like his was never something he thought possible years ago.
On this episode...

After the retirement of coach Dave Christensen, ASU head coach Herm Edwards found his replacement...twice. Ultimately, he brought in Mike Cavanaugh, a hard-nosed veteran with over three decades of collegiate coaching experience to oversee the ASU line.
On this episode, Cavanaugh and I discu...

Arizona State has had a long line of excellent defensive backs over the years, and David Fulcher is among the very best of the best.
Initially a wide receiver, Fulcher would go on to become a hard-hitting and ball-hawking two-time consensus All-American safety. He'd then go to the NFL, earning Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors. He's been an active presence in the community, and earlier this year, he was named a member of the Coll...

The 2021 Sun Devils have plenty of strengths, but one lingering question is how the young and talented receiving corps will come together. One of the key players in the group is looking to make his hometown fans proud.
Tempe native Ricky Pearsall has flashed exciting potential during his first two years as a Sun Devil. Entering Year 3, he is poised to carve out a larger role in the ASU passing game.
In this episode we discuss his d...
When Antonio Pierce assumed the role as Arizona State's sole defensive coordinator, he left a vacancy at linebackers coach. The Sun Devils filled that spot with a former All-American and Butkus Award winner.
Chris Claiborne brings a substantial resume to Tempe. He's one of the greatest defenders in USC history, had a productive run in the NFL after being a top 10 draft pick, and was a successful high school coach before mak...

From the moment he pulled out a USC hat and flung it away during his commitment video, Aashari Crosswell made an impact on the Sun Devil program.
From earning reps as a freshman to his key INT in the rivalry win, Crosswell developed into one of the Pac-12's most promising safeties. However, last season was derailed though a suspension that was later followed by his decision to enter the NFL Draft. It brought to a disappointing ...
Spring is in the air, and Sun Devil football is back.

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.
Current and classic episodes, featuring compelling true-crime mysteries, powerful documentaries and in-depth investigations.
If you've ever wanted to know about champagne, satanism, the Stonewall Uprising, chaos theory, LSD, El Nino, true crime and Rosa Parks then look no further. Josh and Chuck have you covered.
