Arizona State vs Oregon

The other half of my blog is supposed to cover relevant football events, and so far I haven’t put up anything sports related.  However, this past weekend previously #18 Arizona State traveled to Eugene, Oregon to face the #9 Oregon Ducks.  A win would of ranked the Sun Devils close to the top 10, and also have them tied for first place in the entire Pac 12.  Students at ASU couldn’t of been more excited at the possibility for a win on the road in Eugene.

Saturday night came, and Arizona State came out of the gates with a higher intensity than the Ducks, quickly going up 7-0.  As the game went on the Ducks running game overpowered ASU’s front seven, and Oregon ended up winning 41-27 sending the Sun Devils back to Tempe with a 5-2 record.

The Sun Devils are now tied for last place in the AP Top 25 coming up on their bye week.  From a student’s perspective this loss was a huge blow to the momentum the team has gained this year, however I don’t believe our season is over.

The students at Arizona State University are the biggest supporters and fans of their football team, when the Sun Devils play at home they play much better than they do on the road.  If the Sun Devils want to turn their season back around they are going to continue to need the support of their biggest fans. I decided to get one student’s opinion on the future of the 2011 Arizona State Sun Devils.

Headphones and EndZones: The Beginning

The music I listen to makes my head nod.  The music I listen to makes me smile when I hear a clever verse. The music I listen to is not usually played on the radio.  The music I listen to gets turned up when played.  The music I listen to makes me hit replay every so often.  The music I listen to gives me inspiration. The music I listen to moves me.  The underground rap culture has seen a movement over the past five years.  Much of this change has come with the rise of blogs.  Blogs have given underground artists a way to channel their music, and receive immediate feedback from listeners and fans.  The other section of this blog will talk about sports. Sports create emotion.  Sports create conversation.  Sports create rivalries. Sports create heroes.  Sports create life lessons. Sports create unity. If you like underground rap, chances are you really like sports too. deadspin.com is a great site for this. I’ll be posting my perspective and thoughts on sports as well as underground hip-hop.  I’ve been keeping up with hip-hop on a daily basis for about 7 years now. I’ve been keeping up with the MLB, NBA, NFL, NCAA, NHL and other professional sports since I could read the newspaper.  I was born in Minnesota, but moved to Texas at a very young age.  My team loyalty lies with the Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks (NBA CHAMPS), Minnesota Vikings, Dallas Stars, Arizona State Sun Devils, and the Texas Longhorns.   This blog will open your eyes up to music I feel is moving and worth listening to, while also providing an environment to discuss and read about important issues in sports.
