Re: UA hoops gets oral commitment from Kevin Parrom


UA does well in landing recruit

• This was a great grab, especially so late.

Need 1-2 more . . . maybe Lance Stephenson and either a hard-nosed 4, or a backup point. The hot new point is in the 2010 class.

It’s so nice to reload. 3829

• Time will indeed tell. In the meantime, the main guard is the “old guard” . . . Nic the Quick. BLKOJO

RE: Lawmakers push for college football playoff

• It comes as no great surprise a Texan is bleating over this.

Throw in fan pressure from USC, Florida, Florida State, LSU and other powerhouses, and what you WILL end up with are 10-15 programs who land the very best recruits every year. Before long those schools will achieve complete dominance over berths in the so-called “playoffs.”

Is that what you really want? Just look at the Pac-10 . . . USC football basically owns the conference, and has for years now.

In similar manner the so-called playoffs will become an annual feed-fest for the few, and for the sports media who are also pushing as hard as they can.

Be careful what you wish for, people. This playoff hoo-hah may become your very worst nightmare. JOSE S.

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
