Mike Jones, an '09 first round pick? His catches definitely need to increase, and with the now traditional weak Arizona State offensive line, Jones may not have the time he needs to finish his routes and get open consistently. I would not be surprised if he were a first day pick, though. Both FanNation and ESPN's Todd McShay have Georgia's Matt Stafford and Knowshon Moreno at the top of their '09 draft boards. Our defensive ends have been known to disappear when we're playing top quarterbacks (I'm talking to you Vasquez and Davis, making JD Booty and Colt McCoy look like first rounders), so Stafford has every reason to be optimistic about having a big day against us.
Did he pull a fast one? Rudy Burgess originally told the Jags he would go play for them. Suck on that Dirk.
ASU is projected by ESPN to be the #2 seed going into the 64 team tournament. Also, Pat Murphy can officially buy a second home in Omaha with the NCAA reaching a deal to keep the tournament there until 2030. Kiel Roling was rewarded for his 10 RBI week with the Pac-10 Player of the Week Award. Ike Davis and Brett Wallace have also received the honor this season. For all you need to know about this weekend's series against UCLA, CSTV has you covered. And if you haven't noticed yet, I changed the tool bar on the right side to include stats for every Sun Devil currently in the pros. Joe Persichina was recently elevated to AA Birmingham.
They're already talking about James Harden being an All-American next season. Too bad it looks like Harden will already be preparing for the NBA Draft by the time the brand new Weatherup Center is completed in May of 2009.
