What to know
- Paul Myerberg of USA Today caught up with Rich Rodriguez and went in depth with the Arizona Wildcats head coach about the nonconference season, where Arizona finds itself and the program in general.
- Steve Rivera on UA cornerback Jonathan Mcknight: a.k.a., the guy who is forcing balls to be thrown at Jarvis McCall Jr.
- Our own Jason Bartel pumped out an interview with Reggie Gilbert and what's up with Arizona's defensive line.
- Receiver Samajie Grant is atop the injury report for this week's game against the Golden Bears.
- RichRod is not happy about his kick return game -- he called it the worst in the history of college football. Yikes.
- On this week's podcast the Wildcat Radio guys wonder if this Golden Bears team is actually good. Seriously.
- On that note, we did a little Q&A over at California Golden Blogs. They also tipped us off on all of Cal's improvements from a year ago. It goes beyond quarterback Jared Goff.
- And remember folks, it's a whiteout.
