    Default F- Digger Phelps

    This whack job just said that now that UA has lost Ashley for the year that Arizona will not be a #1 seed in the tournament. probably a #3 seed and that we would stuggle to win the pac 12.

    Yeah he probably watched the last game, but he still is a D-bag

    we'll have to prove him wrong. Miller should place his poster all over the locker room - with a bulleye over it -

    Damn him. He got lucky predicting the Cal game. But no way he knew Ashley was gonna get hurt. Gotta prove this guy wrong!

    I hope Miller and the entire team put up every single quote from Digger and all the other "experts" saying this kind of sh**, and work their butts off to prove them wrong. I get the impression they are working hard in practice. Keep it up and it will pay off in March. Bear Down

    Eat a bag of digs, Digger.

    Even with the loss the Ashley, this is still probably the best team of the Sean Miller era.

    Here's my argument: other than this year's team, the 2011 squad (a la Derrick Williams run) was probably our best team yet, right? Yet, Jordin Mayes (as a freshman) was able to get significant minutes in that lineup. As a senior, he's barely even able to crack this years lineup.

    Case in point: the talent level is still so much higher than it's even been at Arizona. Hence, I don't see why this team still can't make a final four run--Sean Miller teams peak in March. And I'll effing take that.

    Hey, I'm the biggest Digger hater I know and his assessment seems fair. It's not personal...

    Let's agree to disagree.....

    He has been a UA Cat hater for a long time, he just is expressing his bias....IMO

    Digger Phelps is the most hated man in Tucson. Can't wait to prove him wrong!

    So, a man named Digger says we'll struggle to win the Pac 12? Will we? Of course - every single game is a battle! Like it takes a Sherlock to figure that out. But AZ will still win it. Just as we have won 22 of our struggles. How many teams DON'T struggle to win their conference? Not everyone plays in the Missouri Valley Conference.
    I always think we're gonna' win

    If Mightier > Louder, how does your question read? (Alligator eats the bigger/greater one).

    Also, yes - F digger.

    Too early to come to any of those conclusions.

    If you've been watching our play the last 3-5 games. We aren't looking good at all.
    Yes we win, Yes you love your cats but let's all be real here. With Brash out and a struggling offense, Missing half of your FT's a game. It ain't going to look pretty down the stretch and possibly in the Pac12 tourney.

    UNLESS we get it together. As for the seeded, our rpi should hold up IF we don't lose games that we shouldn't. If they base part of it, on players being out. We may not get the #1 seed. Hoping that we do, we'll see

    Don't care how much this team struggles...Miller will have this team ready come tourney time and I think this team will be happy with a top 4 seed if it's in the West region.

    wow, okay
    Colorado 20-52 FG's 38.5% / 3-11 3PT 36.4%
    Utah 24-60 FG's 40% / 3-14 3PT 21.4%
    Stanford 18-50 FG's 36% / 6-14 3PT's 62.1%
    Cal 20-62 32.3% / 3PT 2-11 18.2% FT's
    Oregon 22-55 FG's 40% 4-16 3PT 25%

    I'd start caring, down the stretch of the regular season. This ain't the beginning of the season where you have more time to fix things. Especially now, with Brash out and changing line ups. Cmon!

    Digger's thinking back to what would have happened under his "leadership" if one of his key players had gone down. The guy was successful in recruiting for a few years, but couldn't coach. He was the Steve Lavin of the 70's

    I can find a number of very good teams that have had some bad stretches like this, and it happens every year to very good teams, the key is to play through them and not lose many(Like we have so far).

    Bottom line, this is just a small valley a season filled with hills and valleys. Better we see this now than in 4 weeks. Really believe we will be ready come tournament time

    I'd truly be more concerned if Digger picked us to win the national title.

    The only reason the Wildcats have barely won several games in a row is because they have been missing shots they would normally make and their free throw shooting percentage hasn't risen up like it does most every year. A slump is a slump and this too shall pass. And digger can kiss my rosy red grass. Subtract whichever letters you don't like in the word GRass.

    Thank you ... can I get that root beer now please?

    I don't give a single **** about what digger says, but I do think it's crucial for us to secure favorable seeding and location in the tourney. We need every advantage to make a final four run. I don't care if we win ugly, we need to do everything we can to hold on to the one seed out west

    If Miller could do it with the roster he had when Dwill was around. He can do it with this one.

    Ok, but who on this current roster is as dominant from game to game as Dwill was?

    We can't make outside shots and free throws. We rarely decide to get the ball to Zeus down low. Our entire offense right now consists of driving the lane and either (a) hoping it goes in or (b) hoping we get a rebound/easy tip-in.

    If we don't get more efficient offensively, we *could* get swept at Utah and Colorado. And losing at Oregon is a possibility. 3 more losses and maybe not winning the Pac 12 tourney could *possibly* be a 3 seed. I sure as heck hope not, but it is a possibility.

    We were praised, and we praised ourselves for the fact we didn't NEED a single dominant player. We spread the ball out and allowed anyone to step up any given game. NJ rose to the top this year, and he was the defacto go-to-guy as a result. His play has been crap recently thus we struggle.
