Quarterback Derek Shaw, one of ASU's most prized 2005 recruits, has decided to transfer to another school. The 6-foot-4 freshman with a cannon for an arm had plenty of physical tools, but was sitting third-string on the Sun Devils' depth chart, stuck behind Sam Keller and Rudy Carpenter.

"He came to us [this past weekend] and handled himself very well," ASU quarterbacks coach Roy Wittke said. "It was a decision he made for personal reasons and we support him in his decision. You hate to see it happen, but we wish nothing but the best to him."

UM's current lineup includes recording artists Anglo-Saxon, Brad B, The Drunken Immortals, Jawa, Foundation, Pickster One, Skip Skoolnik, Mic Cause, Deeskee, Morse Code, Die Young, and visual artists Jim Mahfood, Fyce, Dumperfoo, David Joseph Perez, Jay Fotos, Lalo, Matt Dickson, and Jeltsoe. "It all kind of came about through skateboarding," Horowitz says. "I started getting into hip-hop, started hanging out at local hip-hop nights and chilling pretty tough with Morse Code, Pickster and the Drunken Immortals.
