Cats get Dawged

The Arizona football team missed its first chance to win three consecutive games for the first time since 2001, falling to Washington 38-14 last night at Arizona Stadium.

The Wildcats (3-7, 2-5 Pacific 10 Conference) turned the ball over four times while being out-gained by the Huskies 490-322.

 The big difference came in the run game, where Arizona managed just 87 yards to Washington’s 333, a season high, behind running back James Sims’s career-high 205 yards on 30 carries, including a touchdown. [Read article]

The Format rocks Centennial


Nearly 2,000 attend on-campus concert

The soft strains of a piano flowed from the Green Room of Centennial Hall last night.

Forty feet away, the bustle of the crowd could be heard as fans of The Format shuffled to their seats.

Two opening bands and 90 minutes later, the crowd of nearly 2,000 erupted with the deafening sound of cheers and whistles as a single light illuminated the drummer for the Phoenix-based pop-punk band.

The crowd reached a fever pitch as the first few notes were heard of The Format's first song of the night, "The First Single." [Read article]

Wildcats devour Seawolves


Defensive pressure overwhelms Sonoma State in 40-point win

It was over before it started last night, as the Arizona men's basketball team cruised to a 103-63 victory over Sonoma State in the first exhibition game of the year in McKale Center.

After struggling initially, the Wildcats' full-court pressure defense proved to be overwhelming for the visiting Seawolves.

Arizona used a 17-0 run in the first half to make the score 31-15, holding Sonoma scoreless for over five minutes. [Read article]

Mideast peace unreachable with these attitudes


If I hadn't read it with my own two eyes, I wouldn't have believed it.

Two weeks ago The New York Times reported that Iran's new president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, told an anti-Zionist student rally that Israel "must be wiped off the map."

Something tells me he's probably not going to be getting many Hanukkah gifts this year.

If there was any doubt before Ahmadinejad's remarks that anti-Semitism is alive and kicking in the Arab world, there should be none now. His remarks were not an extemporaneous aberration but were actually a concise and unfortunately accurate summary of Arab attitudes toward the Jewish state. [Read article]

HBO's "Sex and the City" has been off the air since 2004, and we are no longer able to tune in to lives of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda on Sunday evenings. Yes, the DVDs are out there and TBS has been showing the edited reruns during the week, but it is just not the same. Girl bonding entertainment is lacking these days.

You might, however, be able to get your fix of female saga on stage. Students from the School of Theatre Arts are putting on "Five Women Wearing the Same Dress," a play that reflects the lives and relationships of women. [Read article]
