UA getting respect

Mike Stoops was not the only one talking about Arizona at the Pac-10 media day.

Arizona has been getting more national respect as of late.

Sure, finishing fifth seems like somewhat of an insult after last season.

However, there has simply been more talk about the Wildcats and that includes Media Day.

When asked about the best offense he will face, UCLA corner Rahim Moore was quick to answer.

"Washington and Arizona," Moore answered.

One of the main reasons is because the UA has done well with spreading the field out.

"They do a good job with route recognition," Moore said. "The spread, Jake Locker and Kearse. They blend well. They are very well coached by Sarkisian. You see the points they put up. When you have a good quarterback like Jake Locker and Nick Foles."

So what does that mean for Arizona?

It means teams are going to be looking forward to playing the UA, as it is an extra challenge.

"We are looking forward to it," Moore said. "What I have been doing is preparing our secondary as much as we can and be prepared to face those offenses to help our team win. I am looking forward to it When that time comes, may the best man win."
