Trouble in Tucson

These aren't the best of times for UA students. :: Rick Scuteri/US PRESSWIRE
Tough times at Arizona. Legendary men's basketball coach Lute Olson took a leave of absence for "unspecified personal reasons," one-time UA student (and former Entourage and OC star) Samaire Armstrong checked into rehab and worst of all, there was no free beer at last weekend's homecoming.
Big Brother is Watching
Michigan State fans didn't take kindly to Michigan RB Mike Hart's comment that the Spartans were like the Wolverines' "little brother." Not to be outdone, MSU coach Mark Dantonio said in response: "Does Hart have a little brother or is he the little brother? I don't know, he's ... that tall," (he placed his hand to his chest to illustrate Hart's stature). The best response, however, may just be this item from the Michigan book store.

It's bad enough that Miami QB Kirby Freeman had one of the worst performances we've ever seen in the Hurricanes 19-16 loss to NC State on Saturday, but this video tribute is just pouring salt in the wound.
Biggest Upset Ever?
The Washington Post's John Feinstein thinks Navy's triple OT victory over Notre Dame was the biggest upset since the Miracle on Ice in 1980. SIOC's Andy Gray thinks John Feinstein should look at Appalachian State's victory over Michigan last September.
