Got a chance to check out the Arizona football in there first open scrimmage of the spring on Saturday morning. The Cats defence looked good, but the offence looked poor. Willie Tuitama under threw several pass, something you never want to see from a veteran, not even this time of year.
Following the game the offence was kept on the field for at least 30 minutes, running wind spring and being chew out by several coaches in front of both the fans and members of the media. I'm looking forward to seeing if this get them to "button up the hatches" so-to-speak over the last few days of spring ball. We should have more answers after the April 12th Spring Game.
A large chunk of seats have been removed from the west end of the stadium. I'm not sure what they are doing, but I'm wondering if they are putting in new seat all around the stadium? I also have heard rumors of new HD scoreboard-but so far as I could tell Saturday morning no work has been done on that yet.
MENS SWIMMING WIN TITLE
A week after winning the Women's swimming National Championship the men did the same thing this weekend. Arizona scored 500 points 99 points. Congrats to Frank Bush and the rest of the swim team, both the men and the women.
BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL
Arizona baseball went 1-2 this weekend, beating UCLA on Sunday, after losing on Friday and Saturday. That ended a six game slide for the Cats who were once ranked number one in the country.
Meanwhile, Arizona softball went 2-1 on the road in the Bay Area. The Cats beat Stanford 4-1 on Friday, Lost to Cal 1-3 in Saturday and beat Cal on Sunday 5-2.
