Did we expect anything different? If Rich Rodriguez announced a starter after spring football, the quarterback better be another Tom Brady.
Rick Neuheisel, one of the best college football analysts on TV and radio, broke down the Arizona quarterback competition down to three players after yesterday’s spring game on the Pac-12 Networks: Jarrard Randall, Connor Brewer and Jesse Scroggins, in no particular order. He was most positive about Randall saying he would be a nightmare for opposing defensive coordinators with his ability to move out of pocket. Neuheisel likes Brewer’s composure and knowledge of Arizona’s offense. He was not keen on Scroggins throwing an interception and not becoming the clear No. 1 out of spring although he is a senior.
Arizona’s return game should become exciting again with the dangerous Davonte Neal, who had one of the more thrilling plays of the spring game eluding three tacklers en route to the end zone on a pass play.
Great to see Lance Briggs interacting with former and current Arizona players at the spring game.
Trey Griffey, Neal, Cayleb Jones, Austin Hill, Johnny Jackson, David Richards, Garic Wharton, Nate Phillips, Samajie Grant, Clive Georges … Never has Arizona’s perimeter game on offense been as talented and deep as the 2014 team. It was just last year at this time that wide receiver talent and depth was one of the Wildcats’ greatest concerns.
Remember in spring games past, during the Larry Smith and Dick Tomey years especially, that the defense was in control?
