OT - Arizona offers Ken Niumatalolo EDIT: Not So Fast?

Edit, looks like UA officials are pumping the brakes on prior reports. Link: https://www.azdesertswarm.com/football/2018/1/12/16885818/arizona-footb…

Arizona is rumored to be offering their open HC job to Ken Niumatalolo of Navy, a proponent of the triple option offense. He's an understudy of former Navy/current Georgia Tech HC/Option Guru Paul Johnson.

I'm interested to see how this offense would perform in the spread heavy Pac 12, especially given the existing talent from Rich Rod's Spread Offense. Arizona would also seemingly be an easier place to recruit to vs GT and the service academies.

[OT] - Arizona QB Khalil Tate named Pac-12 Player of the Week for third consecutive time

The first player since USC's Rodney Peete in 1988 to win the award 3 consecutive times.

True sophomore QB Khalil Tate was thrusted into action in Week 6 after Colorado knocked incumbent starter Brandon Dawkins out of the game with a rib injury. Three games later, Tate has completed 31/41 passes for 468 yards (11.4 ypa), 694 rushing yards (15.1 ypc), and 11 total TDs.

It looks like RichRod might have found his next Denard/Pat White at Arizona.

Edit: No desire to bring back RichRod, but that doesn't mean his offense isn't still entertaining/electric as ever.

Michigan and Arizona Watch Party Saturday in A2

MGoCommunity,

After I spend a glorious fall afternoon tailgating and getting ready to cheer on my Michigan Wolverines and all of the amazing young men who we've all followed and welcomed since the days they announced their commitments, I am going to return to my tailgate spot, celebrate what I hope will be a win against PSU and tune into the Arizona Wildcats as they battle the University of Spoiled Children.  I will likely not have much of a voice because I am going to scream my ass off for the Wolverines, but I welcome anyone who is in the area to stop by and join us for what should be an excellent night-cap to a day of great football in A2.

I dont promise any food or beverages as they'll likely be exhausted between 11AM and kick-off, but you're free to come by, say hello, and enjoy the remaining hours of the evening.

  • PLACE: BLUE LOT RV AREA (near Kipke Dr and Stadium Blvd) across from tunnel connecting Blue Lot to UofM Golf course lot
  • SPOT: Directly next to Police building near train tracks that run along new indoor practice facility.  Just look for the RV's and a big TV screen mounted to a Blue Trailer.

Enjoy your day... and GO BLUE!

P.S. Lots of talk about boycotts and player support.  The players all walk by our tailgate, many with their parents, and often stop and chat.  I can think of no better way to support them than shaking their hands and saying... GO BLUE!

Michigan's non-conference basketball tickets are on sale to the general public if you enter the code grthree

Warning: Arizona tickets are single seat only, and $60 a pop.

The rest of the home non-conference schedule is really really poor.  I had to look up South Carolina State to see if they had a program.  They do not.  

At any rate, this is a chance to see the NCAA Runner-Ups in person without shelling out hundreds of dollars for season tickets(Or promising your first-born children to stub hub).  You know the drill.  mgoblue.com

OT - Arizona making Sparty look like choir boys

This came up on my Twitter feed and it's a doozy.  Seems like Arizona football has more than a couple swell guys on the roster who (allegedly) decided to go all Sparty and beat women.  This one sounds a good amount worse than the potluck showdown in East Lansing.  I have a feeling that they won't be dealt with in a Dantonio manner:

I just did a preliminary scan and I couldn't find anything even approximating what we have here...can anyone point me to a decent fan site?

Oh, and THANK YOU, Brian, for creating such a vibrant space, as well as networking it with so many other great sites about Michigan football. Every time I look around I realize how lucky we are to have you.
