ASU's Graham confident as ever despite defensive rebuild

From the way Arizona State coach Todd Graham talked Thursday at Pac-12 Media Days in Los Angeles, you might have thought the Sun Devils had been picked to win the conference in its preseason media poll rather than third in the South division.

Ziegler unfazed by trade talk, line drive to ribs

PHOENIX -- Brad Ziegler had good cause to be distracted Wednesday. His name has been mentioned in trade talks this week, although there seems little chance he is going anywhere.
