Re: New UA hoops coach Sean Miller


Fans praise new Arizona coach

• I was very impressed by coach Miller’s sincere regard for the student athletes; the ones he left behind and for his new team’s athletes. His concern came across several times and you could tell it was heartfelt.

I think Livengood pulled off a major coup by getting this guy! Congrats to the UA athletic department.


• Sean Miller will be awesome! He is a winner in every respect plus graduates nearly all of his players.


Re: Chase Budinger leaving for NBA

• Chase and Jordan will both get first-round money but playing time might be tough to come by. Thanks for the memories. You guys were saviors this year. Nic, be our savior next year!


• Being self-confident is one thing, but overconfident is entirely different. There are a lot of big bodies in the NBA and strength will be huge. I am not sure that Chase or Jordan are strong enough.


• Hill has a better chance at playing time and will develop his dribbling and shot skills. For him, it’s a good move. Budinger is more iffy. Many fans have not given him credit, though, for his hustle and the things he did to help the team besides scoring.


• The real issue is how Chase plays against other draft-level guys and even some hungry midmajor talent in those NBA workouts. He could move up or down.

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
