Culture is currency in college sports. UofA has it in basketball, but it still hasn't paid in full. UofA does NOT have it in football, fans never invested, yet we are two years removed from a BCS/New Years Six bowl.
@Lazy Recruiter. False claims? You went back to WAC teams to torture facts to make your point. Stay past 1978 to compare apples to almost apples and do not ever, ever forget @Lazy that the Cats have only won the Pax 10-12 three times in history, and never outright.
To refute the false claims regarding Rich Rod's greatness at Arizona, her are the conference winning percentages of Arizona Football's last twelve head coaches since 1952...
1. Jim Young (.714) 2. Larry Smith (.585) 3. Dick Tomey (.549) 4. Darrell Mudra (.545) 5. Warren Woodson (.523) 6. Jim LaRue (.519) 7. Bob Weber (.480) 8. Tony Mason (.476) 9. Mike Stoops (.422) 10. Rich Rodriguez (.409) 11. Ed Doherty (.286) 12. John Mackovic (.167)
@no more rich rod. Silly post. Let's do some true analysis. UofA historically has been a six-win team, right? Coach Smith had some huge wins, but the fans didn't invest. Coach Tomey had some huge wins, but the fans wanted more. Stoops, three bowl games. Now, Rodriguez hasten really bad year. The only constant here is the apathetic fan base. Anyone should be able to spot the issue.
UC Boulder has been a sleeping giant for many years. Lots of history there. Tucson is tough, no real history, medium high school investment, but yet we almost always compete. This year seems to be an anomaly.
I'm so sad for these kids playing for Arizona, the fans , and Tucson....my heart aches... when will this program ever get a break from the football gods....I've watched Az football for over 40 years and seen some good teams, but never great...if the Cubs can do it, maybe there's hope for us...
