Sibling Mark by Mike's side through tough first season

Make no bones about it.

Arizona football is Mike Stoops' team.

But there's another Stoops lurking in the background of this year's Wildcats, looking to put his stamp on UA football the same way his brother Mike, now his boss, did at Oklahoma the past five seasons while coaching alongside another Stoops sibling.

"It's a lot of fun for me," said UA defensive coordinator Mark Stoops of the opportunity to roam the Arizona Stadium sidelines with his brother, Arizona's first-year head coach. "This is the first time I've coached with any of my brothers. I get to see my nieces and nephews." [Read article]

Pelletier brothers look to unify Icecats in 2004

A skilled and tenacious defenseman can give opposing coaches headaches.

Two can ensure a very good year for Procter & Gamble stockholders.

The Arizona Icecats hockey team has its own migraine-inducing tandem in brothers D.J. and Mike Pelletier, two keys to UA's attempt at a return to national prominence this season.

It's not hard to see why Icecats head coach Leo Golembiewski has tagged the 6-foot-1 D.J. and 6-foot-2 Mike as his unofficial team leaders for the 2004-05 campaign. They were born hockey players, and their attitudes embody the Icecats' motto, "One team, one goal." [Read article]
