This offseason has been one of the best in Arizona Wildcats football history. Coming off a disappointing 7-6 season, Rich Rodriguez cleaned house on the defensive side of the ball, hiring two entirely new coaches to the staff and promoting two former analysts to position group coaches.
Talking to the players, they felt the new energy from the team. Never wanting to go back to a sub 8-win season again, believing in this new staff and what they have in store for the team.
Now there's more excitement with the #OurHouse movement. Greg Byrne and Rich Rodriguez are dedicated to making Arizona one of the best college programs in America and they believe that they have everything in place to make that happen. The players have totally bought into it, building up the hype for the 2016 season.

This is pretty cool to see, as there's been a complete culture change for Arizona football now, giving us something to look forward to, especially with the rise of recruiting.
