Reviewing Arizona Stadium

Over at Stadium Journey, I wrote up a new review of Arizona Stadium since, well, a lot of the stadium is new. Let us know what you think by leaving a crowd review or a comment!

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.

"Ex-Wildcat Grigsby gets chance to show his health at all-star game"

Nic Grigsby has been invited to play in the Eastham Energy College All-Star Game. Perhaps not the most presigious of all star games, but it will be his last chance to boost his draft stock. The game will air on Fox Sports on Sunday, January 23rd at 5:30 Arizona time, 7:30 Eastern time.

'Reed Named to Senior Bowl'

Yet another acknowledgement of Brooks Reed's great talent. Any NFL team would be lucky to have him.

Arizona loses verbal commitment from S Kerry Swarn.

With the coaching changes, some losses were expected. This is as close to a ‘good loss’ as possible. S Kerry Swarn reportedly de-committed because he ‘did not see where he would fit in among the depth that the Wildcats have.’ Yeah, that sounds suspiciously like he’s scared that he’s not good enough to start, so he won’t even try. When you hire a coach like Duane Akina, one of the best recruiters and DB coaches in the nation, and the depth you possess before he even sets foot on campus is scaring off some players, it’s a good thing. It would have been nice to have Swarn join the Wildcats, but if you’re too frightened to even try to earn a starting job, we’re better off without you.

'Cats Add Three More Mid-Year Players'

Coach Stoops and his staff have signed a QB, a Punter, and a DL. Expect to see several stories today and tomorrow covering recruits, returning players, the outlook for next season, and the coaching staff. Also, for more info on the signed players, check out the verbal and solid committs on the left sidebar of the Arizona Desert Swarm home page.

Q&A: Arizona D-coordinator Tim Kish

An excellent Q&A piece by ESPN.com's Ted Miller. It is very informative, and I recommend it to all Wildcat fans.

VIDEO: ESPN.com's Ted Miller discusses Arizona's season.

Ted Miller takes the stance (non-stance?) that Arizona's season is neither good nor bad, and the final verdict is dependant on the Alamo Bowl outcome.
