Baseball's apparently going to try and steal all the headlines this week, even though there's some pretty great basketball stuff going on.
- Jay Johnson was officially introduced as the new head baseball coach at Arizona. He called Arizona his "Dream Job", which that's always a weird thing to hear, especially from a guy who has almost no connections to the school. Johnson's not coming by himself either, as Nevada pitching coach Dave Lawn is on his way as well.
- It was cool to see the former Arizona coaches (minus Lopez) at Hi Corbett to support Johnson.
- You might have heard about that lady who almost died because of a broken bat hitting her at Fenway Park. But a Tucson-based doctor helped save her life. Go UMC!
- Texas A&M and TCU went 16 innings, and ended like this becase #CollegeBaseball

- Arizona's 2015-16 schedule has been released (in a way). Notice that last weekend, where Cal may be coming to Tucson with a Pac-12 regular season title on the line.
- Sean Miller is the greatest, and if you don't believe me, watch what he can still do with a basketball (or three).
- Coach was also at the Jay Johnson intro.
- The NCAA announced a few rules changes, most notably a shorter shot clock and fewer timeouts.
- Speaking of schedules being released, UCLA's is crazy hard.
- Gabe Encinas talked to an Arizona recruit in Jake Burton
- If you're a full-time student, the football team is hiring.
- Track and Field is heading to Eugene for the NCAA National Championships. Football offensive lineman Gerhard de Beer is there for discus.
- The Pac-12 announced that Sand Volleyball will be part of the conference next season. That's just one of a few things that came out of their summer meetings.
- This hurts as someone who was part of the Pride of Arizona for four years, but former UA music professor Kelly Thomas died after an allergic reaction to a wasp sting. He was only 40.
- Some people at the Racetrack Program talk about Bob Baffert and American Pharoah winning the Triple Crown.
