ASU Football: Herm Edwards Notebook (10/25)

ASU Football: Herm Edwards Notebook (10/25)

Rob Gray-USA TODAY Sports Post bye week It’s been nine days since Arizona State’s disastrous collapse in the second half at Utah. If you’re an optimist, the bye week came at a great time. ASU was able to review film, study their mistakes, and learn from them without immediately preparing for its next opponent. If you like to look at the glass half empty, the week off allows for the team to stew on the ugly loss, and let it permeate the mood of the locker room. Either way, it’s game week again as Washington State comes to town this weekend for an afternoon (!!!)...

ASU Football: The road ahead to a potential Pac-12 South Title

ASU Football: The road ahead to a potential Pac-12 South Title

How to get to Vegas The last time we saw Arizona State football, Utah trounced the Sun Devils in the second half to take hold of the Pac-12 South. While ASU was on its bye week, Utah suffered its first conference loss to Oregon State and UCLA fell to Oregon. Utah still has the tiebreaker lead over the Sun Devils, but the race is open. Currently the South race is ASU and Utah with a 3-1 conference record, UCLA sits at 3-2. USC is still hanging on at 2-3, needing quite the run to make any noise. Colorado and Arizona are bad, real bad. Arizona State has five games left, and the...

ASU Soccer: First Pac-12 win evades Sun Devils, Cal wins 1-0

Zac BonDurant This game did not have a live stream, minor details aren’t known Arizona State soccer (8-7-2, 0-6-2 Pac-12) hasn’t caught many breaks since conference season started. The Sun Devils matchup against Cal (3-8-2, 1-5-0) Sunday moved from Edwards Stadium to Witter Rugby Field because of the heavy rain in the area. The weather seemed to affect the struggling Sun Devil attack even more. Nicole Douglas created four of Arizona State’s shots (two were on goal). Outside of Douglas, the rest of the team had two shots on goal and six total shots. Cal used that...

ASU Volleyball: Sun Devils make it three in a row after beating Colorado

Zac BonDurant A winning streak Arizona State volleyball (11-10, 4-6 Pac-12) has had a season filled with tough losses. However, after the team put together its comeback win against UCLA, the Sun Devils have rode the momentum. The Sun Devils topped Colorado (12-7, 3-7) Sunday as the far better team in the 3-1 (25-23, 30-32, 25-16, 25-21) win. The Buffs took an early 15-9 lead in the first set, but Arizona State battled back. The set quickly swung in favor of the Sun Devils before they closed it out 25-23. Colorado earned the hard-fought set two win as 62 points scored...

ASU Volleyball: Isanovic and Jeter lead Sun Devils past No. 18 Utah

Zac BonDurant First win over Utah since 2015 Iman Isanovic brought the offense, Claire Jeter brought the defense. Arizona State (10-10, 3-6 Pac-12) notched its second straight upset win Friday. Behind Isanovic’s 24 kills and Jeter’s nine blocks, the Sun Devils edged out No. 18 Utah 3-1 (25-23, 25-23, 25-27, 28-26). “I loved how Iman and Claire played today. Our blocking was amazing and it made it so much easier to dig and convert,” Arizona State coach Sanja Tomsasevic. In the first two sets, Arizona State held off two comebacks from Utah. And Jeter and...

ASU Soccer: No. 14 Stanford shuts out the Sun Devils

Zac BonDurant Tough day for the attack Arizona State (8-6-2, 0-5-2 Pac-12) struggled to find any consistent attack Thursday night. The No. 14 Stanford (11-3-1, 5-1-1) defense stopped anything that came its way in the Cardinal’s 2-0 win. The Sun Devils, not even the nation’s top goal scorer Nicole Douglas, produced in the first half at Stanford. Douglas and Cori Sullivan produced the team’s lone shots on goal, but even those didn’t put much pressure on Stanford keeper Katie Meyer. The Cardinal scored its first goal on a corner kick that has been the Sun...

ASU Football: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly vs. Utah

Photo by Boyd Ivey/Icon Sportswire via Ugly isn’t even the right word for the second half I don’t know where to start. Same issues different game. Let’s get into the good, bad, and ugly. The Good - That one play by LV Bunkley-Shelton and The first half That 59-yarder by Shelton was great! A good catch, then coupled with broken tackles and a nice run made for a solid play by the wide receiver. On top of that, the first half was solid. Not perfect, but the Sun Devils looked creative and moved the ball decently well. Anyway, moving on. The Bad - The Receivers, play...

ASU Volleyball: Sun Devils upset No. 14 UCLA

Zac BonDurant Got a fifth-set win The roar let out from Iman Isanovic had pride behind it. Her combined block with Claudia Stahlke sealed the upset victory over No. 14 UCLA (13-3, 6-2 Pac-12) Sunday. Arizona State (9-10, 2-6) completed the reverse sweep to win 3-2 (20-25, 21-25, 25-20, 25-22, 15-8) and beat the Bruins. It also snapped the Sun Devils 0-6 this season at home in five-set matches. Isanovic, who had a team-high 17 kills, mentioned that the confidence never wavered for the Sun Devils, and the win felt different leading into the fifth set that has plagued...

ASU Football: Questions over play-calling, discipline errors return in another defeat in Utah

Rob Gray-USA TODAY Sports Holiday Bowl or bust Rod Gilmore spoke for all of Sun Devil nation during the second half of the ESPN broadcast. In short, Gilmore, along with the rest of Sun Devil Twitter, criticized Arizona State’s second-half play calling for being too conservative. After a pair of early touchdown passes and over 100 yards in the air, the Sun Devils were clearly committed to the run. ASU took advantage of early mismatches on the outside with Utah loading up against the run, why feed the ball right into the teeth of the Ute defense? In Herm Edwards’s...

ASU Football: Sun Devils collapse in second half, Utah wins 35-21

Photo by Chris Gardner/ That was rough The term “A tale of two halves” is often thrown around loosely in sports. One team plays a good first half, and comes out flat in the second, and vice versa. On Saturday night in Salt Lake City, the cliche was personified in the most profound of forms. Arizona State took a 14-point lead into the locker room at halftime, and may as well have not come back out. Utah (4-2, 3-0 Pac-12) dominated the second half in every sense of the word, putting together five methodical, easy, and backbreaking touchdown drives while shutting out...
