The Arizona Wildcats welcomed back an old friend Saturday night. Then they brought back an unwelcomed old identity.
Coach Dick Tomey was honored at Arizona Stadium in between the 1st and 2nd quarters. It was a well-deserved tribute to the man who led the Wildcats to their highest peaks.
It was also fitting that Tomey was present to witness the Cats’ rapid descent from the top 10.
Football training camp is under way for the Arizona Wildcats and hopes are high in Tucson. Mike Stoops took over a program that was on its way to winning nine total games in three years. The rebuilt version has won eight games in each of the past two seasons and the offense returns almost entirely intact.
The team expects a huge year. But even a moderately-big year would be a big deal for Arizona. Post another winning season and Stoops will have achieved something that has only been accomplished once in school history.
