Two former Wildcats are on the ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame.  Tedy Bruschi and Rob Waldrop have a chance to become part of an elite few players by being elected into the Hall.  The decision should come in May.   Bruschi was a two-time all American in 1994 and 1995 and tied the NCAA record for career sacks with 52.  Rob Waldrop was also a two-time all American in 1992 and 1993. He was the winner of the Bednarik, Nagurski and Outland awards and Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year in 1993.

Arizona took out Oregon State in the Quarterfinals of the Pac-10 Tournament.

Arizona went on to eliminate USC in a tough matchup.

Unfortunately, the Cats couldn't finish against Washington on Saturday night and lost on Isaiah Thomas' last minute shot.  This one was a tough one and Coach Miller took the brunt of the responsibility after the game.

Word is that Nic Grigsby's stock rose dramatically at timing day.  Check out the story on Azstarnet.com to see the full stats on his day.  Hint: 43.5 inch vertical = impressive.

The Arizona Wildcats baseball team is rolling along this year and are currently 12-3 and ranked #14 in the nation.  Junior Kyle Simon pitched a gem on Saturday and improved to 4-0 on the year.   He didn't allow one walk during the six hit performance and lasted the entire game.

Arizona football spring schedule has been set.  The Cats will open up with practice on March 21 and will have their spring game on April 16.

Arizona drew the #5 seed in the West and will face Josh Pastner's Memphis Tigers in the first round.  This is a media story delight as Pastner has strong ties to Arizona and is a fan-favorite in Tucson.  Everyone I know was rooting for him when Memphis got the automatic bid.  Check out the entire bracket here.
