photo Football notes: Cats not capitalizing against top-tier foes

Every time Arizona football head coach Mike Stoops walks into his weekly press conference, it has to feel like the movie "Groundhog Day."

He talks about the mistakes that were made and the chances the Wildcats missed.

Following Arizona's 28-21 loss to No. 14 Oregon on Saturday, it was more of the same.

"We had every opportunity to win the game," Stoops said Monday. "I really felt we had control late in the third and fourth quarter. We just weren't quite good enough to get it done." [Read article]

photo Troubled times push McClellan to succeed

For sophomore guard Jawann McClellan of the Arizona men's basketball team, the last few months are ones he's likely never to forget.

By now, everyone knows that McClellan failed a summer-session class after the death of his father, George, in June, a development that left the second-year player ineligible for the fall semester.

Earlier this month, Hurricane Rita, one of two devastating hurricanes to hit the Gulf Coast in recent weeks, damaged McClellan's home in Houston, leaving him to worry about his mother, who still resides in the city. [Read article]

A slice of Bacon: Zona Zoo pass good for more than football

Just in case everyone forgot, that plastic holographic thing you have in the back of your wallet with "Zona Zoo" plastered across it is good for all Arizona sports, not just football.

You probably forgot the full effectiveness of the card in the debacle that had you thinking you were going to win men's basketball season tickets, similar to my excitement in trying to take down the $340 million Powerball jackpot this past week (I didn't win, just in case you were on the edge of your Harvill seat).

photo Pastner's Notebook: Arizona still adjusting to new offense

In this edition of Pastner's Notebook, Arizona men's basketball assistant coach Josh Pastner talks about the team's new offense, how the players are adjusting and updates on Jawann McClellan's and Chris Rodgers's injuries.

Wildcat: Head coach Lute Olson has installed some new offensive schemes this year. Can you explain the system?

Pastner: We're just trying to do some different things right now. We're doing a lot of 4-out-1-in, really trying to space and spread the court. Over the last four years, we've been the highest scoring points per game team at 83.3 points per game. ... As fast as we've played in the past, we're going to play even faster this year, and we're going to put even more points on the board. [Read article]

photo Bell hasn't tolled yet for RB

Senior tailback Mike Bell, a name synonymous with the Arizona football team for each of the last four years, ran for 155 yards and a touchdown Saturday in a 28-21 loss to No. 14 Oregon.

Bell also had two fumbles, something he, as a team captain, said is unacceptable.

His rushing this season - including games of 38 and 53 net yards - has been a microcosm of Wildcat football in his time with the program - peaks and valleys abounding. [Read article]
