Sonoran Hot Reads: Comparing Arizona and ASU

New, comment

"Scientific" research on Arizona being better

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

It's always fun when people compare Arizona and ASU on the internet, and someone named Lori Lipson at Odyssey did just that, and it is amazing. While it's obviously biased, I want to turn everyone's attention to the sports section, and the flaming hot takes in it:

"The most crucial part of a big University besides the academics is the sports. Football and basketball are both very important to both schools. Even though both schools are not ranked in the top 25 College Football rankings, they are both great football schools. ASU is ranked number four in the Southern Division of the Pac 12 and The U of A is ranked number five. Even though ASU is ranked only one above The U of A in football, wait until you hear about U of A's basketball: according to USA Today Coaches Poll, Arizona is ranked number 12 in the entire country. ASU is not even ranked."

So there you have it. Being ranked 5th in the Pac-12 South makes you a great football school. Science says so
