Sonoran Hot Reads: New Mexico Bowl not as exciting as College Football Playoff

Close though....just kidding

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

With the coaching drama behind us, the focus for the Arizona Wildcats on Sunday turned to the bowl selection process. And while Arizona was the final Pac-12 team announced, it surprised no one that it ended up being the New Mexico Bowl, against New Mexico. This is not a very intriguing matchup according to Yahoo, as they have it 34th out of the 40 bowl games. The Arizona Bowl is 39th. Only Georgia State/San Jose State is worse

- Speaking of the Arizona Bowl, it has two Mountain West teams, and the MW commissioner is not pleased, calling the situation "a travesty"

- You can watch what Greg Byrne and Rich Rodriguez had to say about the South Carolina situation on Sunday. The Sports Guys stayed after up at El Conquistador to talk about the move for RichRod to stay. Rivera also wrote this after everything that transpired over the weekend

- Before there was tweets from Bryne and RichRod, there were all the news outlets (not us) in Tucson retweeting a fake South Carolina account because it's hard to read Twitter bios apparently

Do not try to help JuJu Smith-Schuster up when you tackle him

JJ Taylor might be pretty good when he gets to Arizona
