How negative-yardage plays have hurt the Arizona Wildcats offense, especially on third down

Cats Stats: The UA offense has slumped of late, in part because of a rise in sacks allowed, which has impacted the unit’s productivity and functionality.

Jamarye Joiner’s potential, inexperience showing in first year at wide receiver

Jamarye Joiner’s potential, inexperience showing in first year at wide receiver

Photo by Jevone Moore/Icon Sportswire via Kevin Sumlin wanted consistency from the Arizona Wildcats in 2019. He repeated the word over and over again during fall camp. Jamarye Joiner is still trying to establish some. The redshirt freshman is Arizona’s leading receiver through seven games with 290 yards, but he has made his fair share of mistakes too, including some key drops (like a would-be touchdown pass against USC), some bobbled catches, and a fumble against Washington that helped the Huskies turn the tide in a 51-27 win. To be fair, Joiner has a good reason for his unevenness....

What Arizona players are saying about Stanford, the keys to a win, and more

What Arizona players are saying about Stanford, the keys to a win, and more

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Just two weeks ago, the Arizona Wildcats were in a good place. They were riding a four-game winning streak, were undefeated in conference play and found themselves alone atop the Pac-12 South standings with a 4-1 record. Less than a month later though, after consecutive blowout losses to Washington and USC, those good times have quickly gone. They never seem to last do they? The Cats now sit at 4-3, are second to last in the South (ahead of only Colorado) and have a daunting remaining schedule of at Stanford, vs. Oregon State, at Oregon, vs. Utah and at...

First look at the Stanford Cardinal

First look at the Stanford Cardinal

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The Wildcats’ road trip continues in Northern California After seeing their four-game win streak end two Saturdays ago, the Arizona Wildcats now find themselves riding a two-game losing streak. They will look to get back on the winning track Saturday when they take on Stanford. This is Arizona’s first trip to Palo Alto since 2015. The Cardinal have won five straight against the Wildcats, dating back to 2010. Saturday’s kickoff is scheduled 12:30 p.m. PT. on the Pac-12 Network. Here’s a quick look at the Cardinal. 2019 Record: 3-4 (2-3 Pac-12) Key...

Arizona pummeled in trenches in last two losses

Arizona pummeled in trenches in last two losses

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Sure, turning the ball over seven times, including twice on muffed punts, has gone a long way toward the final score of the Arizona Wildcats’ last two games. But those are one-off mistakes, the kind that are just as much the product of luck as execution. The same can’t be said for how Arizona’s offensive and defensive line have performed. There’s not much luck involved in regularly getting to the quarterback or being able to keep your passer from running for his life. Arizona’s offensive line the last two games—in which it has played without...

Arizona softball’s new first baseman could be determined by center field, speed

Photo by Jacob Snow/Icon Sportswire via For the last several years, first base has been somewhat of a merry-go-round for Arizona softball. The Wildcats will have a change at the position in what has been an almost annual occurrence, but who takes over in 2020 may have less to do with first base than other parts of the line-up and even overall offensive strategy. As a freshman in 2017, senior shortstop Jessie Harper was a first-team NFCA All-American at first. The next season, Alyssa Palomino-Cardoza moved in from centerfield after her second knee injury. Once again, Arizona had a...

Stanford is latest Arizona opponent dealing with significant injuries

Photo by Bob Kupbens/Icon Sportswire via Injuries are a major part of college football, and at this point in the season it’s hard to find a team that isn’t hampered by ailments to key players. The Arizona Wildcats are well aware of this, having had to play their last game minus two starting offensive linemen, while starting (for now) quarterback Khalil Tate and starting running back J.J. Taylor have both missed games due to injury. “Injuries are not an excuse, we’re not going to use that an excuse in our program, anywhere on this team,” Arizona coach Kevin Sumlin said Monday....

Arizona treads water in bowl projections despite blowout loss to USC

Photo by Jevone Moore/Icon Sportswire via After going 4-1 against their paper-thin schedule the first five weeks, the Arizona Wildcats started cropping up in bowl projections pretty heavily. After two straight losses to vastly more talented teams, those same experts still see Arizona as a bowl team, but the destinations have gotten noticeably less desirable. Here are all major bowl projections for the Wildcats after week 8: 247Sports: Redbox Bowl vs. Indiana (played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA) CBS: No bowl CollegeFootballNews: Cheez-It Bowl vs. Kansas State (played at...
