Hopefully this OT post will be a pleasant break from the land of unpleasant snowflake posts.

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.

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.

You're a mealy-mouthed bunch of ant-covered tripe, the lot of ya's! Cheese-eating surrender monkeys all! Of course we're going to win on Saturday! Take your wimp fest and rot in hell. 

Those of you who aren't predisposed to give up on your football team before the game begins come with me! There are cheeseburgers and beautiful damsels over the horizon! Some of us are going there! Bye Felicia!

RichRod and Arizona are apparently set to get one of last year's Sparty refugees. Thiyo Lukusa, who played some high school ball in Traverse City (West) is planning to play there: http://tucson.com/sports/arizonawildcats/football/arizona-wildcats-fill…

Some of the board may enjoy some OT RichRod gossip going into the weekend. (Apologies to those who may not enjoy the information.)

He's being sued by the agency that represented him a few years ago:

Bill Connelly's preview of Arizona, titled,

The Arizona Wildcats are checking every box on the Program Collapse Checklist

Rodriguez fired Jeff Casteel. Greg Byrne (who hired RR) left to be the AD at Alabama. Rodriguez just went 3-9 in his 5th season at Arizona.

It's not looking good for the ol' Rich Rod.

It's off-topic season, and this piece from the "Arizona Desert Swarm" blog (their Maize 'n Brew) might be of interest to some here. It's a preview of the 2017 football season for U Arizona and (of course) RichRod.

It sounds like he's a goner. I didn't find anything in the piece unfair even though Arizona is a more challenging job than most. It's been interesting to see what he's done with a largely clean slate there.
