The Devil's Junkie Podcast features interviews and analysis surrounding Arizona State University athletics and recruiting.

    State of the State, coming out of 2021 and going into 2022, where do ASU football, hoops stand?

    State of the State, coming out of 2021 and going into 2022, where do ASU football, hoops stand?

    There’s no question that the previous calendar year was hardly successful for the two major Sun Devil programs, but how do we see this tandem fairing in 2022? Our latest podcast provides analysis on this topic and more. 


     


    Episode rundown (85 minutes)


     


     


    (1:24) What did we learn from ASU football’s 8-5 mark, and with its significant personnel losses on both sides of the ball, what can we expect from the 2022 version of the Sun Devils?


     


    (41:24) After offering a micro view of the football program, we take a macro perspective which nasally pertains to the ongoing NCAA investigation of the program’s alleged recruiting violations. What self-imposed sanctions can we expect by ASU, and how will that affect not only the upcoming year but in the seasons to come? 


     


    (62:37) 2021 wasn’t kind for the Arizona State basketball program, either whether examining the tail end of a disappointing 20-21 campaign or taking inventory of the first half of the current season. What were the issues that needed to be fixed, and why have the solutions not manifested themselves to date?

Tempe love

Great episode with Jamie A! The Santa Cruz Warriors do it right! Keep the guests coming

Jesse_ASU ,

Great listen

Love the instant podcast releases following the games. As a Sun Devil fan living in the Pacific NW, I don’t have any local friends to talk Sun Devil ball with, so the opportunity to listen in after games fills in that void. Much appreciated, Ralph. Keep up the good work!

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
