photo Coach revamps offense for TCU

New QB option, RB try to spark struggling offense

As tomorrow rolls around and another ranked opponent lands on the hot pavement of Tucson International Airport, the Wildcats will search for win number two of an already long year.

Moreover, the football team is looking to gain some self-respect back from what has been a gut check the last three weeks.

"We need to play well," head coach John Mackovic said. "We need to get off to a good start (because) that is a high priority for us." [Read article]

photo Volleyball seeks first Pac-10 win at ASU

More than bragging rights will be on the line when the Arizona volleyball team goes to Arizona State tonight specifically, trying to avoid a dubious distinction from the program's rebuilding days.

The No. 22 Wildcats (6-6, 0-2 Pacific 10 Conference) will look to avoid their first 0-3 start in the Pac-10 since 1992 head coach Dave Rubio's first year against the Sun Devils (5-6, 0-2 Pac-10) at 7 p.m. in Tempe. [Read article]

Streaking Cats hit Big Sky Country

It's a good thing Montana adopted a state speed limit in 1999, because that might be the only way to slow down the UA soccer team.

Hot off a three-game win streak, the Wildcats (4-3-0) strap up against Montana at 5 p.m. today and against UNLV at 3 p.m. tomorrow.

For assistant coach Lisa Oyen, it's a trip home. As a Grizzly, Oyen lead Montana to the 1997 Big Sky Championship while earning MVP honors from both the conference and her team. [Read article]

Rating the best college nicknames

Tomorrow, Arizona Stadium will be overrun with Horned Frogs and no, I don't mean my drunken fraternity brothers looking for the next hot freshman girl they want to hook up with.

No, sports fans I am talking about the TCU Horned Frogs.

TCU not only brings one of the cleverest nicknames in college sports to Tucson, but also its No. 17 ranking in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll (No. 19 Associated Press). [Read article]

photo Freshman joins quarterback carousel

When Kris Heavner left the small town of Johnson City, Texas this summer for the deserts of Tucson, a starting job so early in the 2003 season wasn't even a consideration.

The true freshman has since walked into a situation that involved two older, more experienced quarterbacks who were vying for snaps behind center.

With the Wildcats in the midst of an embarrassing first half of the season, and the questionable quarterback slot yet to be filled, Heavner is slated to get most of the snaps this weekend against TCU a school just four hours from Heavner's old stomping grounds. [Read article]

Horned Frogs boast top-ranked 'D'

Usually when a team loses one of it biggest on-field contributors, it's inevitable that the team will falter or miss a step. That hasn't been the case with this year's No.19 TCU (3-0) team.

Last week, the Horned Frogs were without the services of their starting quarterback and top two running backs and still went on to beat Vanderbilt 30-14. TCU could be missing those same players tomorrow at 7 p.m., when they take on the Wildcats at Arizona Stadium. [Read article]

UA sports roundup

Men's golf slips to 13th on final day

A sluggish performance on the final day of the The Preview by Ping and Golfweek cost UA men's golf seven positions in the 36-hole Virginia tournament, earning the Wildcats a 13th-place finish.

Arizona failed to register any golfers under par, finishing the tourney a 35-over 595. The Wildcats held a sixth-place standing six strokes off the lead before rain washed away the second round of the tournament on Sunday. [Read article]
