UA needs to be more creative on offense



• UA professed to go into a “spread” wide-open passing attack, but it seems to have gotten very conservative lately because it has a pair of good running backs. That has led to, as (Citizen Columnist) Anthony Gimino sort of noted, being tight at important times in the game. We’ve become way too predictable. We have such good athletes. Be creative. Lastly, I was appalled by Sonny Dykes’ comment noting he wished Oregon State had made the extra point (to tie it) and that UA would have proceeded on that last drive differently. Please, isn’t that a way of really saying, “I was too afraid to open it up just a little.” GENE G.

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
