Arizona Hits Paydirt By Hiring Rich Rodriguez While UCLA Watches Idly By

The coaching carousel is officially spinning and it starts in our very own conference with the dependable Bruce Feldman reporting that Rich Rodriguez will be the next Arizona head coach. He had his problems at Michigan, but don't forget he made the formerly irrelevant West Virginia a national title game contender and was one of the best offensive minds in the game for more than a decade before becoming a head coach. In short, this is a pretty damn good hire for the Wildcats.

You know, this would be a pretty nice guy for UCLA to hire, or at the very least talk to. Of course, we'll never get a chance to even say "hi" to him now except for while his team is running up and down the field against us. 

Thanks, Dan, for holding on to Neuheisel for the entire season even when it was clear (in Arizona, coincidentally) that this program needs a change at the top. So next time you see Arizona running up 40 points per game, you can throw that only Dan Guerrero's resume of failure as yet another mistake, not even putting UCLA in position to have a shot at Rodriguez.

It's a statement from Arizona too that they care about football. Make no mistake, Rodriguez is a top level head coach and the Wildcats, a team in our very own conference and division with minimal history, have made a big-time move. Where's our statement? Where's our big-time move, Dan?
