A few roster changes went down on Friday in Tucson

Lately, people have spent a majority of their time worrying about the potential additions to the Arizona Wildcats roster next week on National Signing Day. But a few names have departed. First, it was Sharif Williams, who retired due to chronic knee pain. Then, as noted at the end of Anthony Gimino's post on Williams, Jonathan Haden has informed Rich Rodriguez that he will be transferring. Haden had 41 rushing yards, 21 receiving yards, one kick return, and ten tackles on special teams, including a forced fumble in 2015. He'll have two years of eligibility remaining

- Also, offensive lineman T.D. Gross will not be returning to the program next season

- On the recruiting side, there are a few guys in town this weekend, including Jalen CochranFAU commit Francisco Nelson, and former Cal linebacker Michael Barton

- Cal and Arizona are also going head-to-head for a couple of guys heading down the final stretch

- There might be a new annual fee for students coming to help fund improvements to Arizona Stadium

Basketball

- Congrats to Brandon Ashley on making the D-League All-Star Game

Sean Miller's behavior on Thursday has started an interesting debate. Alec took Miller's side. I will go the opposite way later Saturday

- We learned other things about the team in its loss to the Ducks

- Rawle Alkins was at that Thursday game. This is what he did Friday and will be doing Saturday:
