Grid Notes: Costa leaves the team

Saturday saw a tough game for the Wildcats. Despite a 20-point loss, the Wildcats were just a few drops away from making it a game. The defense shut down the Bruin run game, but struggled to stop the UCLA passing attack. Now the Wildcats get Oregon, a team that came alive against Washington State this week.

Two-a-days begin

The Wildcats began two-a-days with a wide variety of weather. The morning session was a muddy mess, while the evening session proved to be delightful weather. The big news is that one player has made a move, while another was missing.

A Quick Glance at the QB's

The Cats are a little over a week from reporting. One of the most important positions on the field is quarterback. Three different players started last season and all three are back. Someone needs to step up and put the team in his back. If that happens, this could be a decent team.

Costa happy for fresh start

Nic Costa has been in this position before. For the second straight spring he's in a battle for the starting quarterback spot. Last year he battled Ryan O'Hara and this year Kris Heavner and Richard Kovalcheck enter the fray. Costa spoke with Cat Tracks and gave us a very candid report on how camp is going and how he likes the coaches.

Four QB's to battle this spring

Arizona used three different quarterbacks last season, and all three will have an opportunity to battle for the job, along with a redshirt freshman. It will likely be the most heated battle in the spring and unlike last season, a winner should be named for the fall.

Fun With Numbers - Around the Pac-10

As the season progresses, teams appear to be getting testier as penalty numbers rose across the board last weekend; highlighted by Arizona State's 153-yard effort against North Carolina, which just barely surpassed Oregon State's 141-yard flag-a-thon against Washington. Not to be forgotten was Washington State which had 116 yards worth of penalties against Stanford. The Beavers still have a robust 78-yard lead over the Cougars in their quest to be the most penalized team in the Pac-10.</p>
