Around The Valley: Arizona Is Officially Better Than Us

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Lets see what everyone else is saying about the Sun Devils and their opponent this week, the Oregon Ducks (5-2, 3-1 Pac-10).

Oregon wants to run the ball down ASU's throat..

Scott Bordow equates UA's success to a role reversal we should get used to... *scoff*

A few days old, but pertinent: ASU wants a $170 million renovation of Sun Devil Stadium..

Some positive news about our team on the Pac-10 site..

ARIZONA STATE: LB Mike Nixon has picked off a pass in each of the last two games. His two interceptions is tops in the league among non-defensive backs. . . . ASU defense forced five turnovers at USC in last game after gaining just four in first five games of the season. . . . With 9,472 yards passing, QB Rudy Carpenter has moved into the 10th spot on the Pac-10 career list. He also stands ninth in Pac-10 career total offense (9,256) and seventh in career touchdown passes (73). . . . Despite a tender ankle, Carpenter has started 37 straight games. . . . Sun Devil defense has allowed just six rushing touchdowns in six games. . . . P Thomas Weber had four of his nine punts at USC downed inside the 20-yard line.

News is a little hard to come by. That's what happens when a team you expect to contend for the Pac-10 championship is 2-4 after 6 games, and wallowing in pathetic.
