    This is pretty funny

    Think the Arizona football team was thoroughly embarrassed on Saturday against Louisiana State in front of 40,000-plus Wildcat fans?

    Think a 46-point defeat is reason to think this team is as bad as the so-called experts have said they would be?

    Ha! Think again.

    The 59-13 score doesn’t look very impressive for our ’Cats — but only if you don’t look at the box score.

    The Tigers don’t want you to look at it, or worse, interpret it. It works against them and their superiority complex. They know it — and they don’t want you to know it.

    That HAS to be tongue-in-cheek...he can't seriously believe all that.

    What can he possibly say?! That their guys hit us like I-A football players?! Is that the moral victory he's looking for?

    I took it as a sort of sarcastic piece. I found it funny that he pointed out that they had twice as much return yardage on kickoffs. Could that be because the Tigers only received 2 kickoffs all night? It was obvious that he wasn't serious when he wrote that article.

    Read the whole article. It is definitely tongue-in-cheek. Pretty funny.

    Yeah, I think this is a little tongue in cheek. For example:

    "Sure, Arizona lost by 46. But what LSU doesn’t want you to remember is the time of possession. The Tigers had the ball for more than 36 minutes — the Wildcats, less than 24. All things being fair and equal, each team would have the ball for an even 30 minutes. If you adjust the score by points per minute and multiply by 30, the final score would rightfully be LSU 49, UA 16 — a 13-point turnaround. Come on, Tiger fans, that barely covers the spread. Bragging rights, my ass."

    I agree he must be just joking with the Wildcat faithful. If he's serious, he needs to be fired.
