Aztecs enjoy the history, people and food of Little Italy

Dave Wood and Ted Koboch are here this week from Ann Arbor, Mich., in town for an iron workers convention. Wood and Koboch just happened to be visiting Little Italy on Tuesday afternoon when suddenly the area was swarming with college football players. The Michigan men didn’t know SDSU was coming...

SoccerCity stadium would fit most past SDSU football crowds

Records obtained from the city of San Diego showing actual attendance figures for San Diego State football games over the past seven seasons indicate a venue about the size of what is being proposed for Mission Valley would have been adequate for most Aztecs games. According to the city, SDSU averaged...

Aztecs' Tyler Adkison earns Mountain West Player of the Week

San Diego State outfielder Tyler Adkison has been hitting the ball hard lately, seemingly everything going to the wall if not or over it. In four games last week, Adkison hit .688 (11-for-16), with three doubles, three home runs, 11 RBIs and five runs scored. His on base percentage was .737 and...

San Diego State football team prepares for Saturday's Spring Game

How much progress the San Diego State football team has made during three weeks of spring practice will be revealed on Saturday when the Aztecs play their annual Spring Game. The scrimmage begins at 11 a.m. on the football practice field. The event is free, although parking is $2 an hour at the...

NCAA selection getting harder for schools like SDSU

The bad news for San Diego State on Selection Sunday was more than not getting into the NCAA Tournament for a second straight year. It’s that getting there is becoming tougher and tougher, even if the Aztecs right the ship and sail into 25-win seas again. If you peer behind the S-curve, if you...

Like Michigan, Rocky Long taking SDSU football team to Italy ... Little Italy

San Diego State head coach Rocky Long read awhile back that Jim Harbaugh is taking the Michigan football team to Italy during spring football. Long thought, “What a great idea.” So Long is taking the Aztecs to Italy, too. ... Little Italy. The downtown San Diego neighborhood dates back more than...

San Diego State's secondary needs some seasoning

The book “Outliers” famously suggests that 10,000 hours of practice are required to reach a high level of success, such as a computer genius or a concert violinist. Applying that theory to football in particular and San Diego State’s secondary to be more specific, what will it take for the Aztecs...

With Aztecs' absence, March gladness turns to sadness

Those were the days? Well, it was March, and there were basketball days around here far better than these basketball days. So, yes, those were. Face it, there is no true method to this Madness. And yet we yearn to re-live it. It’s easy to look back on the not long ago, to a time of glory and hope...

Analysis: What went wrong for Aztecs

Black polo shirts. That, if you had only three words, is what went wrong with San Diego State’s basketball season that ended shortly before midnight Friday with a 70-63 loss against second-seeded Colorado State in the semifinals of the Mountain West tournament. They are what coach Steve Fisher...

Aztecs running game about only thing running on all cylinders in the spring

Midway through spring practice, the San Diego State football team is very much a work in progress, as one would expect of a squad still six months away from its opening game. Saturday morning’s scrimmage underscored that improvement is needed in virtually every area outside of running back. SDSU’s...

Aztecs blast Broncos, reach MW semis

The team that scored 14 points in the first half and eventually trailed by 21 in the opening round of the Mountain West tournament is going to the semifinals. March in college basketball is all about momentum, and San Diego State suddenly, magically, has it after blasting third-seeded Boise State...

Aztecs survive sorry start, defeat UNLV in OT

It’s not March magic, or March momentum, or March mayhem. It’s March Madness. Capital M. You’ll just have to take our word that this really happened because it wasn’t on TV, and you know how fickle and fuzzy those Internet streams can be, but San Diego State beat UNLV 62-52 in overtime in the opening...

Ryan Lindley answers Rocky Long's call to arms for Aztecs

Ryan Lindley’s past, present and future all have converged in recent weeks. Not surprisingly, it all centers around football. Lindley returned to his roots at San Diego State this week, amid preparation for continuing his own football career, but also with an eye on what he wants to do when he...

Heart resides at the heart of Aztecs' MW tourney prospects

It’s an uncomfortable question for the Aztecs, a basketball team with ability aplenty but more ups and downs than the flight pattern at San Diego International Airport. It’s an obvious question, too. Does this team have heart? The kind of blood-pumping organ that flushes the frustration of the...

SDSU safeties coach Danny Gonzales promoted to defensive coordinator

Danny Gonzales doesn’t know where he would be today if Rocky Long had not approached him 20 years ago to consider a career in coaching. Gonzales certainly wouldn’t be San Diego State’s defensive coordinator. He has added that title to the one he’s held the past six years as the Aztecs’ safeties...
