With the NFL preseason getting underway on Thursday night, a couple of former Arizona Wildcats were in action, namely safety Will Parks. His team, the Denver Broncos, beat the Chicago Bears by a score of 22-0, and Parks recorded two tackles plus a sack. "Man it was crazy," he said of the sack after the game. "It ain't really hit me until after the game when we shook hands that I just had my first NFL game and my first NFL sack. It was pretty amazing. I felt good."

- When the Wildcats returned from Tempe on Thursday afternoon, they went to Zach Hemmila's viewing, which seemed to be quite the scene as described by Michael Lev. They are scheduled to practice on their own practice field Friday morning for the first time since finding out about their teammate's death
