When there's nothing else to sell, there's always hope. We've combed through YouTube to find the best 34 season ticket videos. It's broken into three posts because if we put them all in one, it would take forever to load.
Teams featured in part 1: Kentucky, South Carolina, Northwestern, Missouri, Arizona, North Carolina State, Idaho, East Carolina, Louisiana Tech, Temple, Kansas State and New Mexico State.
A lot of people lost faith in Rich Rodriguez after his failed tenure at Michigan. But Ann Arbor's loss was turned into Tucson's gain.
Rodriguez won eight games in his first season as Arizona coach. With a defense that returns 10 starters and a nonconference schedule that should make for a 3-0 start, a return to the postseason looks like a sure thing.
Take note that the poster is die-cut in the shape of the state.
Rich Rodriguez has donned many a chapeau during his career, but the Arizona coach tried on a new one for two promotional videos shot recently in Old Tucson. The cigar-chomping Rodriguez is the lead character in "Hard Edge" and "Hard Edge II", which feature cameos from Wildcat assistant coaches and players.
Granted, Rodriguez is no James Arness (how about a little five o'clock shadow to roughen things up?) and yes, wifey Rita Rodriguez produced the videos, but we give the effort a thumbs up on creativity alone.
OK, it didn't work out at Michigan, but Rich Rodriguez appears to have found a home at Arizona. The Wildcats are 3-0, with the most impressive victory coming Sept. 8 against Oklahoma State. But it gets cranked up notch in a big, big way Saturday. Arizona travels to Eugene to take on speedy Oregon.
Here's the highlight from Thursday night's UCLA-Arizona game at Tucson. Watch closely as a man dressed as an official enters from the top of the screen. He attempts to grab the ball from an official, then runs off camera, removes his clothes and streaks around the north end of Arizona Stadium.
While law enforcement wrestle the man to the ground, a brawl starts between Bruin and Wildcat players. Three players were ejected — two from Arizona and one from UCLA.
