Morning Meltdown – Arizona Wildcats Edition


For this Morning Meltdown let’s take a look into some of the buzz surrounding the Arizona Wildcats from their win against Cal State Golden Bears to their TV coverage.

The Pac-12 delivered the kind of conference schedule that Sean Miller should be happier with this season.

"“When the conference announced Monday night the exact dates, times and TV coverage for most conferences games, the schedule revealed that UA will only have one road trip with two full days between games – and that’s an early January swing to Oregon when the Wildcats aren’t even in school.All four of the Wildcats’ two-game Pac-12 road trips last season had two days between games, and Miller complained about being away for a total of four or five days.Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott had said schools should charter home between games if concerned about the time away from class but indicated small modifications were possible.”"
