Sitdown Series - Bryan Carrington

The new ASU coaching staff under Kenny Dillingham has a little bit of everything: Veterans with impressive track records who have coached around the country, a few with deep ties to the local high school community, and dynamic young coaches shooting their way up the ranks. It also has a man who is making his debut as an on-field coach...but who has already made a major impact on the sport. Still in his early 30s, Bryan Carrington earned a reputation as one of the nation's best recruiters...


Sitdown Series - Ra'Shaad Samples

Much has been made about how Kenny Dillingham is the youngest head coach in the Power 5. But the funny thing is...he's not even the youngest guy on the staff. To fill the role of wide receivers coach, Dillingham tabbed a man who held the distinction of being the youngest position coach in the NFL in 2022. Ra'Shaad Samples was once a blue-chip wide receiver prospect whose college career was unfortunately cut short due to concussions. But since moving into the coaching ranks, his rise has...


Sitdown Series - Brian Ward

The fresh start for Sun Devil football is much needed in many ways. On the field, the reset comes at a perfect time for the defense, which last year posted one of the most disappointing seasons in recent memory. When new ASU head coach Kenny Dillingham was assembling his staff, he targeted a man who had mad his life miserable earlier in the year to be his defensive coordinator. As Washington State’s DC last year, Brian Ward had put together an aggressive and attacking unit that ranked among...


Episode 348 - 2023 Spring Practice Preview

The Sun Devils are about to kick off the first spring practice of the Kenny Dillingham era with over 40 newcomers joining the squad. To get you prepared, we're joined in studio by Hod Rabino of DevilsDigest.com. We discuss the quarterback competition, the key position battles, players to watch, questions that need answers, and so much more.


Sitdown Series - Kyle Soelle (2023)

This new era of Sun Devil football under Kenny Dillingham is defined by a focus on home. On establishing, and reestablishing, relationships with local players and coaches. On strengthening the ties with the fanbase and local communities. On Activating the Valley. If this new era can have some players like Kyle Soelle, the Sun Devils may just make it happen. Soelle came to ASU in 2017 as a solid local signee from powerhouse Saguaro High School in Scottsdale. While he didn't come in with the...


Episode 347 - "He made it! He made it!"

McKale Mary? GAMEbridge? The Shot Heard 'Round the State? Whatever you want to call it, Des Cambridge's game-winning shot became an immediate part of Sun Devil canon. We're joined by Tim Healey, the "Voice of the Sun Devils" and the man who made the instantly classic call to discuss the shot, its impact on ASU's NCAA Tournament hopes, and where it ranks on his personal list of memorable moments.


Episode 346 - Hoops in the Homestretch

As one promising season begins, another once-promising campaign enters a critical phase. We kick off the show with a look at the news and a discussion of baseball's hot start. Then we turn our attention to men's basketball, where a rough 10-game stretch has the squad's NCAA Tournament hopes hanging on by a thread. What do they need to do to go dancing, and what does it all mean for the future? We get great insight from radio analyst Kyle Dodd (46:03). We then close the show talking Sparky...


Sitdown Series - Chris Edmonds

The Arizona State defense will have a new look in 2023, and that's a good thing. Last season was rough on that side of the ball for the Devils, but there were some promising performances that should factor into a turnaround this fall. Chris Edmonds made a name for himself by earning All-American honors at Samford before entering the portal and heading west to Arizona State. Making the jump from the FCS to the Power 5 took some adjustment, but Edmonds proved to be up for the challenge. He...

Episode 344 - 2023 Signing Day Recap

The traditional Signing Day is behind us, allowing us a moment to catch our breath and take stock of a wild run for Arizona State.

Sitdown Series - Giovanni Sanders

College football is about talent acquisition. Get better players, you win. Those recruiting stars matter. Well, most of the time. There are plenty of examples of quality players flying under the radar, hard at work preparing for their chance. Coming out of high school, Giovanni Sanders was a no-star recruit. That's right. Zero. But he knew he was capable of big things, so after a year at Dixie State (now Utah Tech), he bet on himself and went to a junior college, aiming to catch the...
