The morning of “Black Monday” has come and gone, and the Arizona Cardinals have parted ways with first-year Head Coach Steve Wilks. That was not the surprise of the day, as the writing has been on the wall for this outcome for the last few weeks of the regular season. After a 3-13 season, it was clear that someone’s head was going to roll.
The Arizona State Sun Devils’ loss last week ended the chance to win the South title and play in the Pac12 championship game. I would imagine how hard it must have been to lose that game in the fashion they lost, and at your lowest, go on the road for the annual territorial cup game vs the University of Arizona had to be very difficult to do.
The 21st-ranked Colorado Buffaloes proved it belongs in the rankings with a 28-21 win over Arizona State on Saturday. At the same token the sun Devils are showing they can play with any team and this was a good game that just didn’t go their way.
The Cardinals, SRP, and Albertsons-Safeway have teamed up for the last 19 years on a program called Milk & Cookies. Each Tuesday during the regular season, a Cardinals player will travel to an elementary classroom and read to the kids as everyone enjoys milk and cookies. This week it was Justine Spitalny Elementary K-5 School in the Cartwright School District, that had Cardinals offensive lineman John Wetzel come to sit and read to them.
The NFL game for a potential star Quarterback picked high in the draft is much like a new toy introduced into a daycare center. The excited children represent the rough and tough defenses in the league that are ready to rip into the new toy once it’s placed in the playing area. Old toys get moved to the side and the desire to play with them becomes less interesting, as they have lots of wear and tear and have been beat down by the children until they can’t play any longer.
