About Devils in Detail

ASU Is Special…

Arizona State University is a special place. The scenery, the weather, the girls…okay, you get the picture! That’s why we’re so passionate about all things ASU — particularly Sun Devil sports.

Some “pundits” believe Arizona State has no tradition. They say the university hasn’t been around long enough to have a storied sports history. And they claim fans here in the desert are too laid-back to consistently support our teams.

Whether it’s Frank Kush storming the sidelines in a string of successful seasons, Ned Wulk taking our hoopsters to new heights, Jim Brock and his sluggers winning it all in Omaha or, more recently, Dallas Escobedo leading the way to a softball national championship, ASU has a long and enviable athletic track record.

…We Proudly Cover the Sun Devils.

Devils In Detail is all about following Arizona State University in sports, academics and our community here in the Valley of the Sun. Like you, our writers have strong opinions, but unlike some “fan” sites we always call it like we see it.

Our mission is simple: Covering the Arizona State sports scene from A to Z
