Sonoran Hot Reads: Sean Miller loves John Mayer

Because we all need a little singer/songwriter in our lives

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

If you had a thousand guesses on what Sean Miller's favorite "band" was, I don't think anyone would have come up with John Mayer. But, as Matt Norlander of CBS Sports found out, that is indeed the Arizona Wildcats' head coach favorite musical act. With this fact in hand, you would expect Miller to be a little calmer than he is if this is the kind of music he likes. It also may explain his weight loss, as Your Body is a Wonderland may have been the theme song for that weight loss, or at least I'd like to think so. Aren't we all just waiting on the world to change?

- The Wildcats have to travel the farthest of any team for the first round with the exception of Hawai'i, and really, they are travelling nearly as short of a distance as possible for them. On the flip side, UNC only has to go 22 miles, and Oklahoma is going 24

- They have to travel that far to take on Wichita State, as the Shockers won their First Four game against Vanderbilt. Eamonn Brennan says that the Shockers are about to blow up everyone's bracket

- A couple of former Arizona players were out reminiscing about their past tournament successes. Solomon Hill wrote this on the 2011 Duke game. Miles Simon was thinking back on the 1997 team with Scott Van Pelt too

FiveThirtyEight makes some tourney projections. Speaking of numbers, this is why Arizona's most important number is 4

- One Pac-12 assistant said of Oregon's Dana Altman: "Their best player is on the sidelines. Dana Altman could take me, you and three other guys and win games." I'm ready to try this out
