It’s been a quiet summer for college sports.
Well, there have been scandals and rumors of scandals but after last year’s tectonic shifts this summer has been downright placid.
Unless someone wants to start whispers of Alabama and Auburn to the Pac-12 we have time out west for more reflection. Arizona‘s place in Pac-10 basketball history has been established. Where do the Wildcats fit in on a national level?
The Arizona Wildcats were not able to reverse three historic trends Saturday night. The updated numbers read:
0-5 vs. UConn
0-3 in the Elite Eight in Anaheim
0-2 during Scott Terrell‘s adult-fan-life on his birthday
For some reason CBS didn’t have a graphic with that 3rd one.
I’m a pretty optimistic guy.
I tend to expect positive things to happen. I think the next day will be a good day at work. I believe tomorrow I’ll handle things better with the kids. I keep renewing my Arizona football season tickets.
But even I wasn’t that optimistic.
That’s how quickly things can change in March.
One call, one hero, one (or two) no-calls, and one ticket to the Sweet 16 for the Arizona Wildcats.
