Sun Devils scorch Miners in opener

The ASU football team promised it would begin the 2004 season with a different attitude. And while it may have only been facing the University of Texas at El-Paso, it's safe to say the Sun Devils accomplished their mission.

While they may have started off slow, the Sun Devils eventually delivered the kind of fireworks expected when a Pac-10 team hosts a squad from the Western Athletic Conference. ASU trounced the Miners 41-9.

Republican Convention Uncensored

The State Press photographer Sean Gulley went to New York City to witness the Republican National Convention with all its patriotism and protest.

Gulley experienced the speeches and celebration from inside Madison Square Garden. He also saw hundreds of thousands of protestors march against the current administration.

This photo essay is an expression of what he saw and experienced from this week-long event.

ASU punishes UTEP in Price debut

Matt Hinshaw
New coach. Same discouraging results.

Texas-El Paso found out Thursday that Mike Price can only do so much.

Unable to settle into a rhythm, sophomore quarterback Jordan Palmer resembled a wide-eyed freshman, squeamish about playing under the lights. Senior tailback Howard Jackson showed some flashes, but couldn't accomplish much behind a weary offensive line. And the secondary looked like it was on life support.

Oliver in hospital

ASU cornerback R.J. Oliver was taken to Banner Desert Samaritan Hospital in Mesa early Wednesday morning after developing a blood clot on his right lung.

On Thursday evening Oliver said he was doing well, but was upset that he could not be at the season opener against UTEP.

I am just here listening to the game on the radio, Oliver said. Its sad that I cant be there to support my team but I have faith in them. They will do well.

Nicola Vendettoli is a fiery, punk rock woman with tattoos covering both of her arms, parts of her chest and her back. She wears harlot-red lipstick and dark eye makeup. A silver stud juts out from below the center of her bottom lip and she has surgical steel flesh tunnels in her earlobes.

Fresh air: Tossers

The Sandlot Ultimate Frisbee crew has only three rules: always watch the Frisbee, never dive and hustle, have heart, have fun, but don't keep score. And it works. What started three years ago, with two students tossing a Frisbee back and forth in Lot 59 after class, has transformed into an all-out game every Thursday night.
