"We let them tee off on us. The big plays seem to be our Achilles' heel." - Mike Stoops, Arizona head football coach, on Arizona's 24-31 loss to Purdue Saturday

"I really believe that the money could be better spent elsewhere." - Matt Boepple, political science sophomore and ASUA senator, on the Associated Students of the University of Arizona's decision to spend $1,200 in sending four senators to a leadership conference in Denver later this month. ASUA's total operating budget for the year began at $8,639
