Put time back on the clock

The NCAA decided that trying to shorten the game of football was futile, so the rules revert back to pre-2006 standards or starting the clock on the snap of the ball, not on change of possession. Smart move. As a fan, I don't want a quick game. I've waited all week (sometimes longer) to be at the game, and I don't want it to be over in 3 hours. Give me overtime!
Also, kick-offs will be moved back 5 yards (to the 30-yard line), which should add a little excitement to the game as well. Does that mean we'll have fewer footballs to toss out of the South endzone??

Nice Shirt

There is mention of the UA/Oregon game in this column, but I just thought that the fan's shirt was priceless.

Red Road Uni's Help Cats Find Their Mojo

After going 0-4 in close games this season the Cats finally win one. It's also nice to play against a team that is struggling just like AZ has done this year. Wasn't it sweet to hold Brooks to just 6 points? That rumbling sound you hear is the bandwagon loading up. Again.
  • Quacked up - Seeing Aaron Brooks with a bandage on his cheek and Coach Kent with his left shoulder useless was kind of a strange ending, though.
  • Batcats roll - Starting off 7-0 this season gives hopes for the season. I hope this doesn't work like the old announcer jinx on free-throw shooters.
  • Commitment to Excrement - the Sun Dribbles continue to flame out, big-time.
  • Ivan to Win - I just liked the headline of this article. And what a shot by Ivan.

Agent Zero Saves DC

I couldn't believe it when I saw this article in Time Magazine on Mr. Arenas. You know you've hit the big time when Time is on your side.

Tarred, Heeled, Declawed, Redemption

Wilbur here has been MIA for the past week, much like the Wildcats have been.  After suffering through the meltdown against Carolina last week, then watching a rare home loss to WSU (giving the Cougs their first season sweep of the Cats - ever!), I admit I was a little concerned as I prepared to watch today's game against Washington.  The Cats psyche was to the fragile state, shooting percentages were lower than low, and fans were jumping off the bandwagon faster than partners off Paris Hilton.  Turns out the Huskies were just what Dr. Lute ordered, as the Cats pounded UDub for a 30-point win.  And this in an early morning game for a team that can't seem to wake up late enough.  The confidence gained from today's win will be much needed for the road trip to the Oregon schools next week.  Have the Cats got their mojo back?  Time will tell, but a good showing for the rest of the season will be a requisite going into the PAC10 tourney and beyond.  Go Cats!
Go Cats!  The bandwagon is loading up again.
