    Between the addition of a five-star guard and the loss of a veteran frontcourt player, this week brought a mixture of good and bad news for ASU. We invited Sun Devil Network analyst Kyle Dodd to break it all down and provide his projections for the 2020-21 season.

    The Devil’s Junkie Podcast: COVID-19 brings Sun Devil sports to a screeching halt

    The Devil’s Junkie Podcast: COVID-19 brings Sun Devil sports to a screeching halt

    Sun Devil fans, let alone sports fans at large have never seen a pandemic bring the world of sports to its knees at best mudding the future of some sports and at worst bringing others to an abrupt end. So, in this environment we are left to talk about the impact COVID-19 will have on ASU football that could resume at the earliest in a couple of weeks, and wrap up the Sun Devil basketball and baseball season, two programs that were poised to qualify for NCAA postseason play. 
    Episode Rundown (56 minutes)
    (1:08) ASU football was able to get in half of its spring practice allotment of sessions before a forced hiatus. We evaluate the significance of this interruption not only in the preparation sense but also in the recruiting aspect.
    (10:39) Sadly one of the most impressive ASU basketball seasons in school history will have no postseason achievements to show in light of the NCAA season cancelation, yet we note the feats that did take place and whether the Sun Devils were hurt by not having even a token Selection Sunday event.
    (25:44) We shift gears to the diamond and talk about an ASU baseball season that just 17 games in showed a lot of promise and had the look of a College World Series team with a first baseman that was all but assured to break a 42-year old record.
    (33:03) In these times of ASU athletics uncertainty, it’s only natural that Sun Devil fans have many questions/issues they need answers and provide our replies in this segment.

    Devil’s Junkie Podcast: Mid-spring practice analysis, predicting ASU hoops’ postseason prospects

    Devil’s Junkie Podcast: Mid-spring practice analysis, predicting ASU hoops’ postseason prospects

    ASU’s spring break still has us working, specifically delving into the state of the Sun Devils position by position they completed 50 percent of their spring practices. Later we move from the gridiron to the hardwood discussing ASU as a 3rd seed in the Pac-12 tournament this week and what they need to do to hear their name called in Selection Sunday and be called as “safely” in the field of 68. Thanks for tuning in!
    Episode Rundown (64 minutes)
    (1:19) We start our analysis of ASU on offense. What do we make of a somewhat lukewarm start in the spring, and how has inexperience at the skill positions affected this group so far?
    (32:14) Inexperience is much less of an issue when it comes to the Arizona State defense, as we share our observations on this side of the ball.  
    (48:39) For the third year in a row, ASU basketball has posted a 20-win season. Will this also result in a third trip to the Big Dance? We present all the implications regarding ASU’s possible Pac-12 tournament scenarios can present.

Motley's Mayhem ,

Great insight, horrible delivery

Hod is very insightful and knowledgeable, no doubt. But hes very hard to listen to. Hes very robotic and monotone in his delivery. A lot of “uhs” and “ums” in his delivery. If he had different people on his show with him, this show would be more tolerable. Otherwise 2 stars

Love the Devils

Love the content. But dear god I’ve never heard anyone ramble on and on with no point as long as this guy. 15 min of non stop verbal diarrhea.
At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Uh and uhm

Hod. I love the content. But, you have to get rid of the verbal crutches. In one random 1 minute period, I counted 23 uh’s and uhm’s. That’s over 2000 in a 1 hour and 30 minute pod cast. I’m going to try again, because the content is good, but not sure I will be able to make it through if that doesn’t change.
