York Daily Record: PSU Linebacker Considering Arizona Transfer

+

Red shirt freshman linebacker Ben Kline is a name now surfacing in conjunction with the rumored Penn State players interested in transferring, potentially to Arizona. Rich Rodriguez said during Tuesday's Pac-12 Media Day that UA accepted phone calls from Nittany Lions that had previously been on the staff's radar, but could not specify individual players. UA needs depth on the defensive end, particularly at linebacker after losing transfer Brian Wagner. Rodriguez said he was seeking defensive support, but added that UA would not sacrifice one of its 2013 scholarships for a transfer that would not make an impact.

Pacific Takes Ranks Pac-12 Games of 2012

+

AZDesertSwarm.com's friends at Pacific Takes are examining the best and worst games on the Pac-12 Conference's collective 2012 slate. The list kicks off with the worst, which features Game 3 of the Rich Rodriguez era. Arizona is hosting MEAC member South Carolina State on Sept. 15. SCSU actually boasts one of the best win percentages among all Championship Subdivision programs over the last decade, never finishing .500 or below at any point since 2002. Last season's 7-4 finish snapped a run of three consecutive conference championships and FCS Playoff appearances for the Bulldogs. Still, SCSU travels nearly 2000 miles into what Pacific Takes' Avinash Kunnath describes as Tucson's "dry heat."

Tucson Citizen: Transfer LB Brian Wagner Leaves Arizona Football

+

Linebacker Brian Wagner's transfer from Akron to Arizona was a surprising blessing for a Wildcat defense in desperate need of depth, but it will not come to fruition. The nation's second leading tackler a season ago, Wagner will not play in 2012. He told The Tucson Citizen's Anthony Gimino he "[doesn't] have love for the game anymore." Wagner's departure is a huge void for a Wildcat defense that ranked No. 107 in points allowed last season. Wagner was immediately eligible per NCAA regulations for graduate students. UA's linebacking corps already was its likely greatest weakness. Now, defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel faces an even more uphill battle readying the unit for competition in an offensively proficient Pac-12.
