I really wish him the best of luck at Arizona. There is lots of talent out west that he can use.
<br>For his sake he should not hire Tony Gibson because he gets minus all if the points.

A lot of talent, but unfortunately the resources at Arizona aren't great. Until the athletic department steps up its facilities, RR could have some trouble.

With that said, I wish him the best of luck. If he has any assemblance of a defense there, he will do well. Having only to compete with USC in the PAC-12 South will give him a chance to make a BCS bowl in the future.

I think you mean Go Wildcats!

I'm really glad RR landed at a D1 job with a team I have no problem rooting for.  We will never face them outside of the Rose Bowl, and I've never had an interest in the Pac 12 before now.  I finally have a team to watch for in the late games.

I think it'd be really fun if Arizona eventually deployed a high flying spread offense like Oregon and the two duked it out year in and year out in the Pac-12. Looks like I've got a 2nd team to cheer for!

I predict in his opening press conference he will predict that Rhett will be the future quarterback at Arizona. :-)


I hope he does great out there and that he can get U of A to the Rose Bowl!

For some reason, I think I am permanately scarred from the defenses of RR, and I just cant possibly see him having a good team at AZ.... I will definitely root for him, but I just have nightmares of the beaver stuffed animal in Demen's face... 


(However, I'm sure he will do fine there and have some great seasons... Good Luck RR!)

Arizona is a great program for him. He'll have time to build a program there without the pressures that a place like UM will bring. Plus if he can crack the California and Texas recruiting scenes he can build Arizona into strong program. Great move U of A. His kids should enjoy it out there too.

to go to the practice after the Illinois game last year. I went to the practice because I had a meeting with Coach Rod after it was over. We talked in his office for about two hours. He was an awesome guy that just wanted time to get the team ready. I believe he will do good out there. Best of luck to him out there.
