Cats looking like Homer's Doh!nuts

Not only did they put up a big O'fer the Oregon trail, they also have a noticeable hole in the middle where the center should be. Kirk, Isaiah, and Mohamed contributed another zero in the total points they scored. If rebounding was a muscle memory it'd have atrophied by now as those three also combined for 2 total rebounds. Talk about taking up space. Cal and Stanford present this week with a big advantage inside - it'll look like Andre the Giant with some jobber in there. Hope Lute's got a good game plan, and the players decide to work it. Some recent signees can give us something to look forward to.....can't they?
Arizona was in good company this week outside the Top 25, as both Kansas and Kentucky were also unranked. When was the last time that happened?

Let's see what else is going on in the Wildcat Nation:

Caitlin Lowe the go-to girl -- the softball team has some big holes to plug, too, with nine players gone from last year. Are we going to endure a rebuilding year in yet another sport?

Baseball, too? -- With Trevor Crowe, Jeff Van Houton, and Nic Hundley going pro, Bryan Kervin was the top returning hitter. WAS. He's off to TCU and the Horned Frogs. Ouch.

Stoops still scooping up talent -- plenty of help is on the way, as detailed here....and here....and about the new asst. coach? get the idea. Now get your tickets.

Here's a flash -- there are still seats left ("a limited number") to this week's games against Cal and Stanford. What the heck is going on? It's okay to criticize the guys, but don't you think they're even more disappointed than we are? If you've got a ticket, get your butt in the seat and cheer them on. Be a fan.

Bear Down Arizona.
