I truly believe that
Arizona is more talented than Washington State. I just look at the two rosters and
feel the Cats have a higher number of talented players. I also feel that the
Cougars are the better team. Confused? While the Cats have the better players,
the Cougars are playing better. At least I think they are. The Cougs have beaten
up on SDSU and Idaho, neither who are as good
as New Mexico, but both better than NAU.
They were creamed by a Wisconsin team that
looks fairly mortal and were killed by USC. What does that tell us about the
Cougs? Not much, but someone has scored 40+ points in every game they have
played in this season.
I believe the Cats
are better and should win the game, but I can’t pick them. Until they can show
me they can beat a IAA team and not shoot themselves in the foot, I just can’t

There comes a time when you have to throw statistics out
the window and go with what your heart tells you. Last year Arizona kick started a
late season string of victories when they beat the Cougars. The game takes place a lot sooner on the
schedule this time around but the stakes are very similar. Familiarity with success and positive
thinking can go a long way in providing a team with the confidence they need to
win a game. The fact that Arizona
can look back to last year’s game and remember what it felt like to beat a
quality opponent on the road is something that only the ‘Cats can hang their
hats on. The positive memories could be just what the doctor ordered in
switching the psyche of these ‘Cats to start believing that they can win
Once they believe they can win, the ‘Cats have the talent
on the field to get it done and Saturday night they’ll do just that.

it's that time of week where I break out my Cardinal & Navy glasses and pray
for once that I am right.
Offense: My 'Cats are coming along rather nicely
here. Scoring is up almost 2 TD's
per game. This week Big Earl sees
the ball in short yardage. Gronk
looks even more like Witten, and Tui throws to him as often as
Romo. Grigsby officially becomes
our 2007 freshman sensation. Oh
yeah, and the O-line performs perfectly.
Defense: Mike takes away Mark's headset and we
start looking more like the attacking, swarming D we were promised in 2003 and
less like ballet dancers. Cason
& Fontenot continue to dominate.
Special Teams: Bondzio gets back to kicking DEEP into
the end zone and Crier isn't needed.

is officially put up or shut up time for the Arizona Wildcats. Starting
the season 1-3 is something that absolutely nobody expected and yet that is
exactly the predicament the Cats find themselves in. The Wildcat Offense
has improved, even if slightly, each week so far and I look for them to have a
truly break out game against WAZZU. Willie Tuitama has shown that he can
lead and run this offense and the receivers have stepped it up. If the
offensive line can continue to pick up blitzes like they have been then the Cats
offense should fly Saturday night.
the other side of the ball the cats need to flat out start making some
plays. There is no excuse for the way they have played so far and the
senior laden D has got to step up when it counts, and that time is now.
The Cougar offense is a good one and the Cats better be on their toes. I have a feeling they will be this week,
