It’s tough to coach in Lute’s shadow


Re: UA fires women’s basketball coach Joan Bonvicini

Having to coach a basketball team opposite coach Olson is not an easy position to be in.


She has done a remarkable job and can leave UA with her head held
high. . . . Good luck in whatever it is you pursue, coach Bonvicini. We
will miss you!


I didn’t know we still had a women’s basketball team. . . .
Seriously, though, I went to a few games and practices of hers and was
always amazed how friendly she was to fans. Nothing like going to a
men’s practice. Good luck in the future, Joan.


Livengood continues to “let go” of these coaches, but he still has
to pay them! So now he has to hire someone and pay them, too? . . . He
should take whatever he owes to these coaches he continues to “let go”
out of his pocket. He should be the one going.


Re: UA men’s basketball team

How about Kevin O’Neill this year. A guy brought in to shore up a
lacking defense. So where does Arizona rank in opponents’ field goal
percentage, the truest measure of a good defensive team? UA is 56th out
of the field of 65. Wonderful. He doesn’t have it. Period.


Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
