10.20.09 Pac-10 Football Podcast – Arizona and Stanford show America what the Pac-10 is about

43-38. Both quarterbacks throwing for over 400 yards. Arizona and Stanford played the beautiful game last Saturday in Tucson. I really am passionate about the football played in this conference. I think it’s the best. The SEC is nice, but the Pac-10 has always had more innovative/effective offenses. Florida’s 23-20 win over Arkansas was alright, […]

Arizona should Hire Pat Summitt to coach its Men’s Basketball Team

Fig Jam WEIRD RAMBLING COLUMN ALERT (just giving you a heads up) As UW heads to the desert this week to take on the Arizona schools, I look at the University of Arizona and have to wonder what the future holds for the Wildcats.  With Lute Olson gone the Wildcats are in their second straight […]

PAC 10 Officiating continues to be an Embarassment

Fig Jam If you watched the Arizona v. ASU game last night then you already know what I’m talking about.  If you didn’t, then what you missed out on was one of the worst displays of officiating in college basketball that you could ever hope to see.  It was an absolute disgrace and the outcome […]

Week 2 PAC 10 Hoops Wrap: Fear the Bears

Fig Jam The second week of conference play has come and gone in the PAC 10 with California making a statement with a rare roadtrip sweep of the Washington schools.  Arizona also got off the mat and got two much needed victories but alas, the Oregon Ducks have fallen on hard times and find themselves alone […]

Week 1 PAC 10 Hoops Wrap

Fig Jam One week into PAC 10 hoops and I am reminded how much I love college basketball.  The nonconference season is great, but there is something special about playing conference opponents and having a full slate of conference matchups to watch every week.  Here’s how it panned out in week 1: Biggest Winners:  Washington, […]
