- This incredibly frustrating season is finally done. Thank goodness.
- Dennis Erickson has even more pressure on him to replace Offensive Coordinator Rich Olson.
- Recruiting starts tomorrow. The coaches need the time this year to land some of the players they’re seeking and their calendar was just cleared.
- The Vegas Bowl, while I would have enjoyed going and it’s a shame we’re not going, does not provide the same level of benefits as other bowls. First, you’re playing a tough BYU team that will probably score a ton of points on you (have fun UA!). Second, it’s so early in the bowl season–and the rivalry game so late–that you probably only get 6-8 additional practices scheduled, far below the 15 you’re allowed.
- Stoops’ job at Arizona is safe for another season, and might even get another contract extension (fingers crossed!).
And, finally, Kim and I can plan a better national park roadtrip this winter.
