Arizona Wildcats Game Week social media reactions: Tuesday edition


Yes, Gronk’s last game at Arizona was eight seasons ago. Kind of hard to fathom, right?

BYU’s NFL prospect at nose tackle, Travis Tuiloma, is out for at most a month with a foot injury.

Or … after his first interception …

Pete Thamel writes: “Rich Rodriguez’s long flirtation with South Carolina this off-season hints that he’s anxious to leave, as that’s a bottom-tier SEC job.” He also writes that a Rodriguez return to West Virginia would be the “juiciest speculation” this season. Nothing like guessing, right?

Red Alert …

New BYU coach Kilani Sitake has shown a calm temperament heading into Saturday’s opener, no signs of duress, which is his personality.

I’ve heard of spicy tacos, but this is ridiculous (and funny).

One thing to think about: Sitake said he will not change philosophies of previous coach Bronco Mendenhall because of the many holdovers from last year. That could play into Arizona’s hands with Marcel Yates coaching against BYU the last two seasons.

Taysom Hill has only played four games over the last two seasons because of injuries. For him to beat Tanner Mangum for the starting role must mean — to use a Rich Rod term — is off the charts.

California transfer with some high praise for Yates. publisher, writer and editor Javier Morales is a former Arizona Press Club award winner. He is a former Arizona Daily Star beat reporter for the Arizona basketball team, including when the Wildcats won the 1996-97 NCAA title. He has also written articles for, Bleacher Report, Lindy’s Sports,, The Arizona Republic, Sporting News and Baseball America, among many other publications. He has also authored the book “The Highest Form of Living”, which is available at Amazon.
