Arizona replaces Sgt. Hulka with ... Rich Rod

CBS Sports Network loses an analyst. Arizona gets a future.

That’s my first impression after hearing that Rich Rodriguez is taking the Arizona job. Just about the perfect hire. Rich Rod is hungry and wants to prove himself after the Michigan detour. Arizona needs to be revitalized. Rodriguez needs a job.

In short, Rich Rodriguez fits in Tucson. It is a laidback town, one of those big-little towns that isn’t pretentious. Larger than Morgantown, not as tradition-bound as Ann Arbor. In terms of sideline demeanor, Rodriguez is the antithesis of Mike Stoops. Arizona just traded Sgt. Hulka for this guy. 

That’s motivation.

Let’s be honest: Both sides needed rejuvenation. The Michigan thing just didn’t work out. Stoops had worn out his welcome. This just made Arizona matter again.

You can believe Rich Rod will attract top quarterbacks. No word on who he’ll get as defensive coordinator, but you can be sure Wildcat football will be exciting again. This is a new era in the Pac-12 and for the only team in the old Pac-10 never to play in the Rose Bowl, this is a home run.

Good for him.  He's a good coach that got in over his head at Michigan with players and a system that didn't fit the conference.  I think he can be succesful elsewhere.  I'm not sure if Arizona has the personnel that he needs but certainly he is walking into a lower level of expectations.

Who wants to coach  in No wearsville Ann-Arbor anyway.They got turned  down by 3 Coaches last year.Then they took a Coach from a Mid Major program Horse Head Hoke.He's winning with Rich's Kids and has maybe the most unbelievable cup cake Teams to play,and 8 home games to beat that.But thats what you get when your AD is a Pizza Man,and one THE CHEAPEST PIZZA'S YOU CAN BUY.I love it.The higher the Monkey goes up the pole the More ASS you see.

Maybe they'll treat him a little better than they did in Ann Arbor!
