Pac 10

Arizona Wildcats

  • From the Tucson Citizen of Monday, August 18, 2008 comes the evaluation by offensive coordinator Sonny Dykes that starting quarterback for the Arizona Wildcats, Willie Tuitama, is “really seeing some things now” and during a recent 61-play scrimmage on Saturday, “was out there calling plays on his own.” Tuitama seemed to concur, telling reporters, “I’m more comfortable. It is something that comes along with the offense. Once you learn this offense more and understand what is happening, it is going to be a whole lot easier.” Subsequently, expect the senior to, as John Moredich writes in this article, to “have more freedom to make calls at the line” and become “even more dangerous” as one of the Pac-10’s best passers in 2008.

  • Rob Gronkowski, sophomore tight end for the Arizona Wildcats, continues to get love from UA’s offensive coordinator, Sonny Dykes, as noted in an article printed Sunday, August 17, 2008 by the Arizona Daily-Star. States Dykes, He may be out for the first few weeks as he deals with possible mononucleosis.

  • Two quick notes on Wildcats’ starting tailback Nic Grigsby, as covered in an article carried in the Tucson Citizen on Saturday, August, 16, 2008: First, Grigsby acknowledges that the punch he threw at cornerback Devin Ross last weekend was “a dumb play by me” and that Ross actually made what the sophomore tailback considered “a good tackle” when Ross brought him down. Second, Grigsby has changed his number from #23 to #5, the former number of Antoine Cason; fantasy owners, let’s hope that he plays to the same All-American level Cason did in his final season last year.
