TUCSON, Ariz. -- It was the middle of August, and the hope of Arizona football was riding on the arm and leadership of a talented but then-relatively-untested senior quarterback Matt Scott.
And in the background, there was his apprentice, B.J. Denker, saying he was going in with the mind set of always thinking he was "a starter," yet clearly knowing Scott was the guy.
Well, Denker's time might be coming on Saturday morning against visiting Colorado in Arizona's Homecoming game. If it does, he said, "it'll be a dream come true."
There's a good chance Denker, a self-described nerd who loves football and everything about it, will start in place of Scott, who suffered a concussion against UCLA last weekend.
The circumstances of the start - there's a chance that Richard Morrison could see himself at QB, too - aren't the way he would have liked it, but as Denker said it's part of the game.

TUCSON, Ariz. The second-to-last act Solomon Hill made in McKale Center was his only mistake. It was a missed free throw.
Other than that, well, he was all but perfect. And although Arizona is still a work in-progress with a long five months ahead, it did look pretty good in its 98-60 win against Chico State in its final exhibition game before Sunday's season-opener against...
Arizona easily defeated Chico State on Tuesday. View the video to see what Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom have to say about the UA's performance, the overall victory, and more.
1. Amir Carraway is the real deal. He could play at a high major university. The junior who filled the statsheet for Chico State last season is poised for a breakout year for the nationally ranked Wildcats. Against Arizona he had 13 points and 3 boards.
2. Kaleb Tarczewski was the consensus No. 7 player in the class of 2012. The 7-footer played 18 minutes against Chico State but...
