  • Sun Devil History: Tempe College Normals VS. Phoenix Indian School Braves?Jul 19, 2015 - 11:15 am - If you're a fan of ASU sports, some facts may come as a surprise to you about our history. In the early 20th century, what is now known as the Arizona State University Sun Devils was actually called the Tempe College Normals, which was an old-fashioned term for teaching *norms*. Some of the Normals teams would square up with a local high school, the Phoenix Indian School Braves. April 1***
  • Sun Devil History: ASU Football in the 1970’s was the Boise State of TodayJul 15, 2015 - 03:17 pm - There is a strange correlation between Arizona State Football and Boise State Football. When you take a close look, there are striking similarities between the two programs. I started considering the similarities back in the 2011 Maaco Las Vegas Bowl, when our Devils were handled by a less talented Boise State team. The Broncos were reminiscent of the Sun Devil teams in the 1970's. In t***

  • SUN DEVIL COUNTRY HISTORY: The ChuckboxApr 30, 2015 - 11:08 am - My memories of going to ASU in the '80s are hazy. I majored in Graphic Design, so I spent a lot of time in the Art Building, which is just south of University on Forest, or if you really know the campus, right near the Chuckbox. For those of you less familiar with the lay of the land, Forest is two blocks east of Mill Avenue. Everyone has their favorite restaurants from when they were in colleg***
  • How Arizona State University Became the Sun DevilsApr 26, 2015 - 09:20 am - If you attended Arizona State College (now Arizona State University) in 1946, you may have had mixed feelings about the new name, the Sun Devils, and mascot, Sparky. For decades the team, and mascot, had been the Bulldogs. Of course the school colors had been Maroon and Gold since 1898, when the teams had been called the Normals, after the original name of the school, the Tempe Normal School (***
  • No. 23 ASU Softball: State of the Season Going Into Utah Series This WeekendApr 24, 2015 - 10:43 am - At 29-16 and ranked No. 23rd in the nation, ASU Softball has held steady during the tenuous Pac-12 season.

  • University Colors: How Long Have the Arizona State Shades Been Maroon and Gold?Apr 22, 2015 - 02:49 pm - 1974 Arizona State Football dawns the Maroon & Gold If you're a true Sun Devil, you bleed Maroon and Gold. And if you know the history of Arizona State University, you know that ASU has only been the Sun Devils since 1946, when it was Arizona State College. Before that, when it was the Tempe Teacher's College, they were the Bulldogs (after Pete the Bulldog), and before that, the Normals. R***
  • True Sun Devil Down to Your Core? Then You Should Know About Petey the BulldogApr 19, 2015 - 10:48 am - A few years ago, about the time I started posting old photos of Phoenix on a Google+ page, a new logo was designed for my school, Arizona State University. It was a pitchfork, a simplification of the Sun Devil *Sparky* mascot that was adopted in 1948, and which had been created by former Disney animator Berk Anthony. All of this got me wondering how the old-timers reacted to the changes in the***
  • ASU Football: Offensive Captain Ron Sowers Recounts the Transition from Coach Frank Kush to Darryl RodgersApr 09, 2015 - 11:45 am - In 1982, Ron Sowers was a 6-5, 245 lb lineman and offensive captain for the #6 Sun Devils who finished as Fiesta Bowl Champs with a 10-2 record. That was his senior season at ASU and the end of a wild ride he took that began in 1977.  In 1977 Sowers was recruited to Arizona State by legendary Frank Kush only to see his coach ousted from the program two and a half years later in 1979. He a***
