Arizona football head coach Mike Stoops on the recruiting trail (courtesy of ""Wedding Crashers""): ""You're sitting there, you're wondering, 'Do I have food on my face, am I eating, am I talking too much, are they talking enough, am I interested? I'm not really interested, should I play like I'm interested but I'm not that interested but I think she might be interested but do I want to be interested but now she's not interested?'

Changes shine up Sancet

After all was said and done with the 2005 edition of college baseball, and it was ASU - not Arizona - that punched its tickets to Omaha, Neb., for the College World Series, Arizona head coach Andy Lopez wondered what was next.

"Ace aims for title, not records"

As she slogged through the most mortal six weeks of her career, Alicia Hollowell realized dominance had a price.

Editorial: Restricting majors not a fair solution

It's no secret that when it comes to class availability, the UA has problems.

Of all the factors that contributed to the No. 5 Arizona softball team's 45-12 record last season - the program's worst since 1987 - the most important one may have been the least obvious on the field.
