Football: Life after Mackovic

Not much the same for Wildcat football one year after coach's firing

Mike Stoops isn't John Mackovic. It may be true that for the second straight season - the first under Mackovic last fall, the second right now under Stoops - the Wildcats are 1-3, desperately trying to pick up that seemingly impossible second win.

Men's golf finishes tied for 12th at 'Preview' tournament

The UA men's golf team finished in a tie for 12th place yesterday at The Preview by Ping & Golfweek in Owings Mills, Md.
