RE: UA softball team sent to Louisville for postseason play


NCAA called a ‘biased bureaucracy’

• I think Livengood must have done something that the NCAA just continues to punish him for. Baseball, softball and basketball continue to get sent far, far away for postseason play. Mike Candrea is the No. 1 softball representative on the planet Earth, and Arizona’s history in softball at the NCAA level is second only to UCLA, and that’s debatable. The NCAA is a biased bureaucracy that can arbitrarily do whatever the hell they want to.


• Don’t forgot that UA has one of the best softball fields in the country. The only way NCAA can justify ASU getting to host is that they are the defending national champs. I think all national champs should get that courtesy, but that said, we deserve one, too!

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
