Not much of a pay raise if he did go

With UNLV finally getting around to finding a head coach by hiring Marvin Menzies away from New Mexico State, the nearby Aggies are now in the process of finding their next head man. According to the Las Cruces Sun-News, one of NMSU's candidates is current Arizona Wildcats associate head coach Joe Pasternack. When the UNLV job first opened up, Pasternack's name actually showed up on that list. But NMSU doesn't seem very likely. As Bruce Pascoe points out, Pasternack makes more money as Sean Miller's assistant than Menzies made as NMSU's head guy

- It's been a really weird recruiting cycle for Arizona. Another thing that makes it strange is that none of these guys are from California

Football

- Off-the-field issues could result in Cayleb Jones not getting drafted, which is puzzling to Rich Rodriguez and Trey Griffey

- The Wildcats host aforementioned New Mexico State on Wednesday night at Hi Corbett. First pitch is at 6 PM

Softball

- Arizona is still ranked 17th. They'll be on ESPN2 this weekend as they host UCLA
