Links: Nick Foles could be Blaine Gabbert or Ryan Leaf, and Damon Stoudamire is sort of in the HOF

One day, Nick Foles could be just like me.

  • Alex Williams of the Arizona Daily Wildcat talked extensively with Arizona AD Greg Byrne regarding the timeline on the Arizona Stadium scoreboard and also about the renovation plans for the stadium construction. And, is there any chance the Wildcats move the basketball arena from McKale to downtown Tucson? Byrne also says the baseball team playing at Hi Corbett Field would make the UA facilities one of the best on the West Coast.
  • And he's not screwing around with that last factoid. I wrote about the possibility of Hi Corbett being an awesome place to rejuvenate Arizona baseball (OK, so I just want to go there and drink a few beers, too), but there's other reasons for such a move. Byrne is apparently not just scoping the place out. On Tuesday, the Tucson City Council authorized a letter of intent for a lease deal to be signed by a 6-0 vote. From the Star:

The UA would pay $250,000 a year to become the major tenant for five years, with a five-year extension at the school’s option. The rent would be subject to a 3 percent annual inflation escalator.

The vote also allows the UA to move in before the final agreement is approved.
