Our Opinion: So where are UA naysayers?

When Arizona was one of the last teams – if not the last – to make it into the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, there were no shortage of naysayers who said the Wildcats didn’t belong.

The naysayers have gone silent.

The Wildcats won their first two games of the tournament to advance to this weekend’s Sweet Sixteen.

For those who follow UA basketball, no reminder is needed of the season’s travails. For those who don’t follow the Cats, there isn’t enough space here to go through it all.

At this point, all that matters is that UA is one of just 16 men’s college basketball teams still playing. And that is a mighty impressive accomplishment.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
