The “best of the year” lists are always tricky.
For the calendar year that was in Arizona Wildcats athletics, do you pick specific games, specific moments, or do you go with larger themes?
Do you choose only the good things? How do you balance the happenings in football and men’s basketball with the success in other sports?
When our Gannett big brother, the Arizona Republic, asked us to come up with a top 10 list of storylines for UA, we muddled through all that and came up with the following Top 10 list.
