Your Washington-Arizona SuperBlog

A live collection of timely thoughts on the Washington-Arizona men’s basketball game.

3:01 p.m. – Good news, Husky fans. I found a 16-ounce PBR in my fridge with expiration date Feb. 21, 2011. Absolutely fantastic.

Tim Floyd’s decision to spurn the University of Arizona men’s basketball program for his current employer, USC, is absolutely mind-boggling. 

It’s like being offered the keys to a brand new Ferrari, when you’re current car is a Hyundai (no offense to Hyundai owners, they make a very practical automobile), and having the lack of sense to simply refuse this beautiful, wonderful, amazing gift that has fallen into your lap.
