Sorry everyone, but yesterday was really quiet for Cardinals news. Who would have thought that during free agency when your team isn't doing much, you won't see a lot of news relating to the team sometimes? Hopefully there will be more good stuff to talk about tomorrow....

So to start off this April Fools Day here are a few links about mostly the other teams in Arizona.

Arizona Sports News:

Milestone night for Ray Whitney as Coyotes win
On a night dedicated to celebrating the Coyotes' faithful, who were bestowed with jerseys, trips and other freebies, perhaps the most appreciation was directed toward veteran winger Ray Whitney. In his two seasons in the desert, the 39-year-old Stanley Cup champion has been a critical reason why the team has remained playoff contenders rather than pretenders. Amid the off-ice distractions that have garnered greater speed this season and the endless battle to remain in the top eight, Whitney's effort and chemistry with linemate Radim Vrbata has been the constant. That duo's success typically dictates the team's offense and so during a game the Coyotes needed to win to keep pace in the Western Conference, Whitney and Vrbata were at their best, combing for four points - including the 1,000th of Whitney's career - to guide the Coyotes to a 4-0 win in front of 15,856 at Arena on Saturday.

Coyotes netminder Smith wins Team MVP Award -
The Phoenix Coyotes announced their 2011-2012 award recipients prior to the team's game against Anaheim Saturday at Arena.

ASU quarterback position undecided -
Quarterback wasn't supposed to be a position of concern for the 2012 Arizona State Sun Devils. It was set up to be Brock Osweiler's team, but after ASU decided to let go of Dennis Erickson, which led to Noel Mazzone heading to UCLA, Osweiler entered the NFL Draft. During the Sun Devils first scrimmage Saturday morning, sophomore Mike Bercovici, redshirt freshman Michael Eubank and redshirt sophomore Taylor Kelly rotated series in that order. After the scrimmage new head coach Todd Graham didn't address any of the quarterbacks individually, but did discuss them as a group.
