In an interview with the Arizona Daily Wildcat Friday, Rodgers said that many hold misconceptions about who he is and that he is determined to come back and win with the men's basketball team. [Read article]

"So, ladies, I saw that there are some pretty interesting photos of you all on that Facebook Web site." These words - spoken not by a friend or fellow student, but by my landlord - ushered in a wave of dread.
