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.
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.

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.

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 (***

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***
