Stoops and his team have been working on their class of 2010 for almost a year now. They have 18 commitments, including 3 four stars committed. As this article states, Stoops doesn't care much for star ratings. He recruits for talent and then develops at will.
Jim Livengood is currently one of three finalists for the AD at UNLV. He visited the school on December 15, 2009 and UNLV will make its decision in the next few days. I'm not really sure how I feel about this. I love the Sean Miller hire and Livengood has been good to all Arizona programs. I think I'll miss him if he goes.
Arizona has moved quickly to replace defensive coordinator Mark Stoops, who left for Florida State last week. The Cats will replace him with Greg Brown who was the secondary coach at the University of Colorado. I fully trust Stoops on this decision. Brown will make it to the Holiday Bowl and help the Cats play against Nebraska. Rumor also has it that Stoops will name Tim Kish as the co-defensive coordinator for this year and the 2010 season. Rumors, rumors, rumors.
Go on over and visit Corn Nation for all of the prep work Nebraska will be putting in during the next two weeks. The Cats and Cornhuskers will face off on December 20, 2009 at the Holiday Bowl. I hope you have your tickets because the Arizona and Nebraska allotment have been sold out. That does not mean that the game is sold out, but you'd better get on it!
If you haven't heard, "The streak is very much in jeopardy." Not good. This article also hits on Kevin Parrom is still out of practices and now the Cats may be without Jamelle Horne who suffered an ankle sprain in the San Diego State game.
Washington State is 8-2 overall. Klay Thompson is averaging 25.1 points per game. Wow! Look out Pac-10.
