During Bobby Hurley's introductory press conference at ASU, Michael Crow took the time to take some digs at the Arizona Wildcats.
It all started when Zack Rosenblatt asked a question Hurley about the rivalry.
Michael Crow just called me out as being from Tucson and asking a question about the ASU-UA rivalry.— Zack Rosenblatt (@ZackBlatt) April 10, 2015
Which led to....
Crow on the rivalry: "Ask him how it’s gone lately."— Zack Rosenblatt (@ZackBlatt) April 10, 2015
"I got a feel for it already just from the brief amount of time I've been in town"- Hurley on intensity of ASU-UA rivalry.— House of Sparky (@HouseOfSparky) April 10, 2015
Sure, ASU is 9-8 against Arizona in the last 17 meetings. But is a program's success based on its performance against one school?
ASU president Michael Crow took shot at Arizona in presser saying Wildcats trying to "make it .500", referring to ASU 9-8 vs UA since 2008.— Javier Morales (@JavierJMorales) April 10, 2015
Arizona Basketball tweeted this out right after Crow called out ZackBlatt

Look, Michael Crow is right. ASU basketball did pretty well against Arizona under the coach they just fired.— david (@dpottzzz) April 10, 2015
Arizona v. ASU all time basketball record: 146-82. Good luck trying to "make it to .500" @michaelcrow— Drew Hefner (@hefsnoggle) April 10, 2015
I look forward to the day when Ann Weaver Hart is out there spitting hot fire at ASU.
