Arizona has been here before.
You know, 2-1 after a solid-if-unspectacular non-conference slate, opening the Pac-12 schedule with a road game in the Bay Area against an opponent who is probably not as good as if is
Last year the Cats fell to Cal, which won all of a single game the rest of the season. Coincidentally it came against Stanford, who Arizona is facing this weekend.
Cal wasn’t good last season and Stanford isn’t any good this season (or last season, really). But what the Wildcats showed in their loss to the Golden Bears one year ago and are looking to prove they have moved past is a level of immaturity that comes with a rebuilding program.
