Next three games will define Arizona’s seasonby Anthony Gimino on Nov. 13, 2010, under Sports
Arizona safety Joseph Perkins is hopeful but perhaps delirious.
“I’m still thinking Rose Bowl,” he said. “Stranger things have happened, right?”
Uh, well …
Sure. If you wanted to carry it out to the extreme, you could devise a scenario in which Oregon loses to Cal or Oregon State while Arizona runs the table — including winning at Oregon — and Stanford loses once more.
That would create at least a three-way tie for first place in the Pac-10, and if all that happens, we’ll worry about the tiebreakers then.
Yeah, stranger things have happened. Just not very many.
The Rose Bowl has been the golden ring Arizona has been chasing all season … but it’s time for the Wildcats to move beyond that, to recalibrate their goals.
There is still much to play for in the final three regular-season games.
Like the direction of the program.
