Sonoran Hot Reads: Arizona faces confident Colorado bunch

How can you be this confident when you're 1-19 in conference play?

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Remember way back when Xavier Johnson said the Arizona Wildcats "weren't that good" after UA beat the team by 12, and predicted a 22-point victory the next time the two teams met? Well, we have a similar situation today, with football head coach Mike MacIntyre guaranteeing a win over the Wildcats at a Homecoming rally on Friday night in Boulder. You'd think this school would learn eventually? Or maybe they just want this to be a rivalry so bad? Just remember, MacIntyre is 1-19 against the Pac-12 since arriving in Colorado.
