Not to beat a dead horse, but the FBI cloud that has been hanging in and around the Arizona program put a massive dent in the Wildcat’s 2018 recruiting class, with the arrest of Book Richardson and the ESPN story about the alleged tapes of Sean Miller talking about payment for Deandre Ayton scared away many of the top players in the class, many of whom were going to give the Wildcats a seat at the table in their recruitment.

When your assistant coach is your significant other and husband, the communication and relationship takes on a whole new meaning. For Adia Barnes and Salvo Coppa, that is just their everyday life.
The Arizona Wildcats came into their Friday night matchup with Colorado coming off their biggest win of the season. Colorado came in after suffering their most humiliating loss of the season, blowing a large lead to Oregon State at home, which was the Buffaloes third-straight loss after starting the season 5-0. Something had to give, and the game did not disappoint, as the scoreboard operator had a busy night. Here are the five stats that defined the game on Friday night:
Alabama - LSU, Penn State - Michigan, and Tom Brady hosting Aaron Rodgers is what I am going to be watching this weekend, as should you. The combination of historic southern and northern conference rivalries being bookended by the two of the best quarterbacks to ever spin a pigskin wrapping up the weekend will have your couch suffering from permanent indentation after the hours upon hours of vegetation that will occur over the next couple of days. If you get in trouble for being a lazy slob, just blame it on me.
The Wildcats weren’t satisfied, as they continued to pressure the Ducks, making sure that the upset they worked so hard for was going to come to fruition, as Shun Brown’s 27-yard touchdown catch from Tate and ensuing celebration all but extended the Homecoming celebrations.
Hello my fellow degenerates and sports addicts, we have been blessed with yet another full weekend of football. Will I say this every week? You bet your bottom dollar that I will.
Even though the defense accounted for an incredible 9 tackles for loss in the first half against UCLA, this Oregon team will be prepared, and more than capable of being able to stymie the young defensive front of Arizona.
Due to the absence of Khalil Tate, Arizona and it’s offense has been slightly limited in the passing game. Yet, the Wildcats, who have led the Pac-12 in rushing the last two years, rode their two horses in running backs JJ Taylor and Gary Brightwell all the way to the brink of victory. Combining for 275 rushing yards as both runners eclipsed the century mark, with the two Wildcats both averaging exactly 8.1 yards per carry, gashing the Bruins defense all night.
LOS ANGELES – UCLA and Arizona, two of the cellar dwellers in the Pac-12 South, squared off in the historic venue in front of a half-full stadium. The Bruins came out on top with a score of 31-30, moving to 2-5 on the season as Arizona head coach Kevin Sumlin suffered his second-consecutive one-point loss to UCLA in the Rose Bowl, going back to his time at Texas A&M. The Wildcats now fall to 3-5, and their dreams of going bowling in December took a major hit on Saturday night.
UCLA is coming off a 30-point win over Cal, which showed encouraging signs in a season that has shown few and far in between for UCLA. Arizona is coming off a humiliating display against Utah, but have had an extra day of rest and preparation than the Bruins do. This spread seems fair, especially with the absence of Khalil Tate, as Vegas is banking on the Arizona offense to be just as anemic as they were in Salt Lake. I think those guys know what they are doing. I’m hedging my feelings and going with Bruins -9.5.
The man who eventually did take over as the quarterback through most of the game, Rhett Rodriguez, son of former head coach Rich Rodriguez stepped in and threw his first career touchdown pass on friday night.
In what is thankfully the primetime game of the weekend, as I, a sane person, consider Sunday Night Football to be a superior product to Monday Night Football, should not disappoint neutral viewers as the NFL’s brightest young quarterback Patrick Mahomes faces off against the greatest quarterback to buckle a chinstrap -- Tom Brady.
Here are four observations about Arizona football's performance in its 24-17 win against Cal Saturday night.
Have I told you guys how much I love Patrick Mahomes II yet? The second year gunslinger with an elastic arm saved my behind last week during his Monday night victory over Denver.
ANALYSIS: If Arizona football continues this trend of inconsistency, forget the Territorial Cup, Arizona won’t even be playing in a bowl game if this kind of play continues. These lingering issues need to be addressed, quickly.
Good morning and happy weekend to all reading this! We are welcomed by yet another full weekend of football games after a long and seemingly endless work week. If the week you just went through felt like you woke up Monday and then got flipped around in a riptide for five days then spit out, I am right there with you.
Sean Miller and his brand new staff have landed their second commitment of the 2019 class as three-star center Christian Koloko from Sierra Canyon School in California pledged his future to the ‘Cats Sunday morning on his Twitter page.
Coming in to this season, everyone from their mother to Sports Illustrated thought that the Wildcats were going to have success primarily down to the legs of Khalil Tate. That, to put it lightly, has not been the case.
