ASU's stay in Omaha ends

All the pieces were seemingly in perfect position for ASU to live to see another day at this year's College World Series, but instead, UC Irvine flipped the script on the Sun Devils, taking a 8-7 victory.

Jury: at least 16 years

Although former ASU running back Loren Wade's final sentencing hearings won't begin until Aug. 24, a jury recommended a prison sentence of at least 16 years last Tuesday.

Eight Sun Devils taken in MLB draft
Eight ASU baseball players were selected in the 2007 MLB draft last week, including Eric Sogard in the second round to the San Diego Padres.

Matt Spencer was selected in the third round by the Philadelphia Phillies, Andrew Romine in the fifth to the Los Angeles Angels and Tim Smith in the seventh to the Texas Rangers.

Opinions: Extreme makeover needed for the campus

DOUGHERTY: I'll be the first to admit that there are beautiful spots on ASU's campus. Certain locations on campus feel majestic or inviting and every so often ASU actually looks like a first class institution of higher learning.

However, there is a painfully disjointed nature to much of the grounds. Eyesores sit next to famous architectural masterpieces. Some areas are beautifully renovated while others are ignored for decades.

Opinions: The cost of a country's development: the environment

CHONG: Last week, The Economist reported that China is unveiling new measures in an attempt to curb their carbon emissions.

China has notoriously been known to be lax on its environmental policies, especially as it continues to develop its large cities at a feverish pace. The problem is painstakingly obvious to anybody who has visited a Chinese city.

A couple months ago a professor who had visited Beijing told me out of the two weeks he was in the city, there was only one day of sunshine.

Opinions: A lovely list
