Arizona's Jenkins satisifed with past, ready for future

TUCSON, Ariz. -- If only every play were a 91-yard run for a touchdown. Life would be grand. But Arizona senior running back Daniel Jenkins realized a long time ago that life isn't like that. Not even close. It's more like two yards here, four yards there, always working for whatever you get. But for one game this season, Jenkins, listed at 5-foot-9, 194 pounds, was big...

Rodriguez needs team meeting to get Wildcats attention

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Sometimes a football team needs some little reminders. A few yells here and there. A media lockdown. And, when the situation warrants, a team meeting.

Arizona ready to take next step after opening win

Arizona did what it was supposed to in its opener against Northern Arizona. The Wildcats overpowered their FCS opponent in the 35-0 win, posting their second shutout under Rich Rodriguez while getting their second season under the coach off to a solid start. Still, it was far from perfect. The offense wasn't quite the juggernaut it was last season, the game plan bland by Rodriguez...
