Sonoran Hot Reads: No Arizona players named to All-Pac-12 teams

A couple of honorable mentions though

On Tuesday, the Pac-12 announced its football postseason honors, and there were exactly zero Arizona Wildcats on both the first and second all-conference teams. Arizona was the only school to earn that distinction. A trio of seniors — Samajie Grant, Nate Phillips, and Trey Griffey -- garnered honorable mentions, but that was it. You could argue that Shun Brown was more deserving than Griffey, but that’s for another day. It’s also extremely questionable that WSU didn’t place any offensive linemen on the teams either

- One guy who might get honored by the conference down the road is Scott Young. Here’s a cool profile on him and how he led his high school team this year

- Oregon officially fired Mark Helfrich

- Will Arizona need a new offensive line coach next year? Well, Jeff Tedford seems intent on reuniting with Jim Michalczik in Fresno. Side note: worst family reunion locale ever

- On defensive line next year, it would probably be good to bring in this big guy from College of the Canyons

- The UA coaching staff was at Arizona Western on Tuesday


- Sean Miller had a press conference on Tuesday, and while there was no update on Allonzo Trier, Miller did address what Ray Smith’s role will be moving forward

- Miller also called Kadeem Allen one of the best leaders Arizona has ever had, and that this part of the schedule is a “pressure point”

- Arizona hosts Texas Southern on Wednesday night, a team that “nobody wants to play,” according to Sean Miller
