for old graybeard fans like myself - Check out NFL Films latest on Jerry Smith

I have to say, I was extremely impressed with how NFL Films handled their coverage of Jerry Smith: A Football Life. It covered the era, expressed the esteem that Jerry was held in by his teammates...

Armchair GM

Just playing around trying to see what folks might think of some possible trades/signings/maneuvers to help the team: I fully expect you to pick apart these musings and they are nothing more...

3/25 Green benefit game to be held at Kino

Per ESPN, the D'Backs and the Dodgers are going to play @ TEP on 3/25 and its for a good cause too!

Cats edge Dawgs by a whisker, 87-86

It wasn't pretty, often ugly, but it sure was passionate.  Both sides wanted this one and someone was gonna be disappointed.  There are some games where teams simply match up better than others...

Wazzu vanquished, Cats win 7th in a row 79-70

Do not adjust your set.  the Cats are in control of the vertical, they are also in control of the horizontal and for all intents and purposes, for now they are in control of the Pac 10 race. ...

Devils disarmed in duel 67-52

The lingering unanswered question appears to be, is the Arizona program back? Has the rudderless program found direction?  Did Livengood screw the pooch one last time on his way out of town? T...

last night in the Pac 10

It appears that we received some clarity in the PAC 10 picture last night.  Posuers were identified and challengers stood up to be accounted for.  The Pac 10 now appears to be a three team race...

Cats complete conquest of NorCal with 3OT thriller over Cal

The scoreboard stated that the final score was 107-105.  What it implied was a whole different horizon for our Cats.  The result was a team accomplishment and perhaps the most critical stepping...

Cats clobber Bruins 85-74

Are we all growed up yet? Our lads in their stylish new white uniforms took the court and manifested themselves in a most unusual way last night...last night we got to see the transitional...

Devils done in Desert Duel, 80-69

After the first couple of weeks of league play now being complete, its looking more and more that as Derrick Williams goes, so go the Cats.  Auditions have been held to develop a wingman of sorts...

Cats open PAC 10 with road win @ Oregon 76-57

What a nice way to leave Eugene (author edit and gaffe, I had Salem here until some gracious Duck backers edumaceted me)  and McArthur Court.  That place has been raucous and filled with horror...

Cats conquer Colonials 82-56

The Cats started the week of Christmas by giving the Colonials a brief tour of the dangers of the desert before they continued on their trek across America.  It was a thorny, painful and difficult...

Cats' claw past Wolfpack 72-62

A review of the Wildcat game from Sunday 12/19/10

Cats topple Titans, prevail 73-62

Coach Bob Burton should be quite pleased with himself.  He had a game plan and his players executed it and if there hadn't been a certain amount of home cooking going on, his squad might have well...

Sooners scuttled as Cats depth takes charge 83-60

What a difference a year makes.  Last year, the Sooners embarrassed the young Cats and taught them the first of many harsh lessons of the road. This year, the lesson was returned in kind as the...

Rice Cooked, Cats eat well on the road 84-57

Ben Braun must hate Arizona.  The Cats owned him in Berkeley and he moves to Houston and we darken his doorstep again.  In his defense, he's new there and it looks like he has a couple of pieces...

Hanburger nominated by Seniors Committee for 2011 HOF class

At long last it's happened.  As was alluded to by Peter King from his column over the HOF lovefest earlier this year, it appears that the movement not only has legs, its a movement all its own: h...

Edwin Encarnacion DFA'd by Toronto

Dare we sign him and stick him in AAA to prevent another NL West team from picking him up and allowing him to continue his Reign of Terror against us?

Brandon Webb back by the trading deadline?

I haven't seen anything regarding his status, so I thought I would pass it along.  Looks like the revised timetable is for his return to be August. I overheard this mentioned on the MLB network...

Parra sent down

Was anyone else surprised by this move?  I had thought that Parra had won the 4th OF job out of training camp but instead of Gillespie being sent down, GP gets the ticket to Reno instead.

Fogg(y) Mountain Breakdown, Cats win 78-73 over UCLA

I don't know what it is about UCLA and Kyle Fogg but Sean Miller should convince that kid that every opponent is secretly representing the Los Angeles campus for the University of California every...

Arizona 76 Cal 72 Recap

Well it appears that our season is going to continue to get more interesting.  In one of those long-shot scenarios where if the Cats wanted to harbor any hopes of postseason play, outside of the...

Streak stymied, Cats victorious 77-58 over ASU

It was another step forward and in my humble opinion Sean Miller is showing he's worth every penny of his contract so far as the Wildcats downed the Sun Devils 77-58 in Tempe.  Granted, he's not...

Tourney Talk

Now that we've started the conference slate, it's becoming evident that the Cats are either improving or the caliber of teams in the conference this year are not what they used to be.  The third...

Cats have their way with Dawgs 87-70

It got close..... once, about three minutes into the second half, the Dawgs had just about reached the tipping point but an alert Coach Miller called timeout, refocused the troops and they never...
