Rich Rodriguez did not speak with Anu Solomon for two weeks after bowl loss

Rich Rodriguez was so steamed over the way the Fiesta Bowl unfolded that he did not speak with quarterback Anu Solomon for two weeks after the game. Arizona lost to Boise State 38-30 after Solomon was sacked on 3rd-and-goal with 14 seconds left. Solomon inexplicably held onto the ball instead of throwing it away and...Read More

Rich Rodriguez Wouldn’t Talk To Arizona QB Anu Solomon For Two Weeks After Fiesta Bowl Loss

IG/anusolomon Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez was very angry after the program’s 38-30 Fiesta Bowl loss to Boise State, so much so that he wouldn’t talk to his young star quarterback Anu Solomon for weeks after the fact. Solomon racked up 400 total yards through the air and on the ground, and scored two total touchdowns, but he also threw two critical interceptions, which...

WATCH: Arizona QB's bad play to lose Fiesta Bowl

Attention, college football programs: do not play Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl. Just decline the invite if it comes and the Broncos are the opponent.  You will play a crazy and entertaining game, but you will lose.  For the third time in program history, Boise State won the Fiesta Bowl, defeating Arizona, 38-30, Wednesday night in Phoenix. The Wildcats had a chance to tie...

Photo: Utah’s Travis Wilson Warmed Up Shirtless In 40-Degree Weather, Arizona’s Anu Solomon Bundled Up

Today’s pregame in chilly Salt Lake City, Utah was certainly a tale of two quarterbacks. With a high of 42 degrees today, and possible snow in the forecast, it certainly isn’t a pleasant day at Rice-Eccles Stadium. Arizona quarterback Anu Solomon bundled up, as you expect from a player that spends most of his time in Tucson. On the other hand, the weather doesn’t seem to bother...

Arizona's Solomon dealing with tender ankle

TUCSON, Ariz. -- About 20 minutes after Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said Anu Solomon was "probably hurting more than he let on," the Wildcats starting quarterback walked by the football facility with a foot in a walking boot. "He's been getting treatment and he hasn't missed a practice, and he's been getting around OK, but he probably wasn't 100 percent (against Washington) and...

Arizona QB Anu Solomon Was “Disappointed” With Decibel Level In Autzen Stadium

Ironically, it was just two days ago that Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich told reporters that he and the rest of the employees directly associated with Autzen Stadium have to sign waivers every year because of the ridiculous crowd noise. But apparently not everyone seems to think it’s all that loud of a venue. Arizona quarterback Anu Solomon, who threw for 287 yards and one touchdown...

Heisman hunting: Arizona's Anu Solomon

Freshmen aren’t supposed to win the Heisman. It’s something of a taboo. Giving it to one would have been a slap in the face to the juniors and seniors who put in the time, who paid their dues. It’s probably why Adrian Peterson didn’t win the 2004 Heisman. It’s definitely why Herschel Walker, the best player in the country playing for the national champion, didn’t win...

After Hail Mary, Arizona's Solomon focused on his mistakes

TUCSON, Ariz. -- By the time Austin Hill had come down with that 47-yard prayer vs. California, Anu Solomon couldn't move. Yes, he "was in total shock," but that was not why he was immobile. Former quarterback B.J. Denker, now a student assistant, tackled him amid all the excitement. (You can see that in the highlight video above.) "I couldn't do anything," Solomon said Tuesday as...

'Laid back' Solomon serious about being Arizona's next QB

TUCSON, Ariz. -- All Anu Solomon can control is, well, what he does. Work hard. Make smart decisions. Stay confident. Be a leader. And oh yes, get faster and be stronger with his arm. Whether that's good enough the win the battle for Arizona's starting quarterback job is anyone's guess. "It's about doing the big stuff," the redshirt freshman Solomon said after the Wildcat's late...
