Arizona Wildcats

1. Stretch Marks. The 2006-2007 season has resembled that of a young Alpha Phi freshman, heading to Tucson after a long summer of working out and tanning in the sun. Sure, she looks great when college begins, but five months of drinking any possible liquid (Everclear, YUMMY!) and ordering Domino's on her Cat Card has lead to a larger ass and a sudden case of college acne. Arizona begins the year 12-1 before dropping eight of the next 16 games, including six of eight during a stretch in January.

2. Deja Vu? Lute "My Dentures Bring All the Boys to the Yard" Olson's only National Championship came in 1997 when the Wildcats finished fifth in the Pacific-10 Conference, the same place they find themselves this year. Also in '97, Mike Bibby won the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year award, something Chase Budinger has all but wrapped up.


3. Get the Stars the Ball. The two best players for Arizona are Marcus Williams and Chase Budinger, so it would make the most sense to get them the rock. When Williams or Budinger score more than 20 points, the Wildcats are 15-1 this season, with the only loss coming against Oregon by two. — Shane Bacon
