Camp Terminated

While many ASU Sun Devils football fans lament the loss of Camp Tontozona – the team’s annual fall-practice home for the past 48 years – we say good riddance. Now the team may actually be good on a consistent basis.

Stick with us here for a moment. The squad can keep costs down and devote that scrilla toward recruiting the best talent out of California and beyond. Plus, the team now has a supersweet $8.4 million indoor practice facility, located steps away from the Tempe campus. (How could you miss the giant, white bubble located just north of the Cornerstone complex?) With the sleek, air-conditioned, FieldTurf-equipped digs that the team can practice in anytime, maybe, just maybe, the Devils can become the irresistible force that usurps the immovable steel object known as the USC Trojans for Pac-10 superiority.

However, as the saying goes, traditions die hard, and Camp T hasn’t been completely put out of its misery yet. On Saturday, August 16, the Devils hold their annual open-to-the-public fall scrimmage at the storied facility.

Sat., Aug. 16, 11:15 a.m.-1:45 p.m., 2008
