photo Wildcats hire Stoops

Mike Stoops has been named the 28th Arizona head football coach, UA athletic director Jim Livengood and president Peter Likins announced Saturday.

"We will expect to win, we will win, and we will do it in a very quick way," Stoops promised at a Saturday afternoon press conference in Arizona Stadium.

Stoops replaces fired head coach John Mackovic and interim head coach Mike Hankwitz at the helm of the Wildcats. Mackovic was let go five games into his third season in Tucson after posting a 10-18 overall record with Arizona, while Hankwitz led the Wildcats to a 1-6 record after taking over on Oct. 28.

Law school fees will rise for new students

Incoming law students at the UA's James E. Rogers College of Law will pay higher fees for their education, but administrators hope students see it as a trade-off for a better education.

"People have the mindset that you get what you pay for, and it truly is worth it," said Verlaine Walker, the coordinator for the pre-law advising program.

The Arizona Board of Regents decided in its Nov. 21 meeting to raise the fees for both the juris doctor and master of law degrees to $8,250. These fees will apply only to new students in each degree program, and will be in addition to the college's tuition. [Read article]

All-male hall all-male no longer; dorm will also help undeclared residents find majors

The last remaining all-male residence hall on campus will open its doors to members of the opposite sex in the fall.

After more than 75 years of housing only male students, Cochise will become co-ed, primarily because of a lack of interest in an all-male dorm, said Jim Van Arsdel, director of Residence Life. [Read article]

Things you always never wanted to know

  • In the late 19th century, doctors discovered a Mexican porter named Paul Rodrigues who had a bone more than 4 inches long protruding from the upper part of his forehead. The horn was divided into three principal shafts and had a circumference of about 14 inches. Rodrigues wore a special pointed cap to hide it. But that case was by no means unique. Sir W.J. Erasmus Wilson, a 19th century English dermatologist, recorded 90 cases of human horns 44 females and 46 males. Of these 90 cases, the majority of the horns were situated on the head. A few, however, grew from the face (several from the nose), thighs, back, foot and one from the penis. [Read article]
