Arizona Won’t Take Much From Savannah State, Either
Had a conversation the other day with Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez, who is trying to put a makeover on his career and the Wildcats. The story is here.
Rich Rod was engaging and pleasant to talk to, providing the kind of one-on-one phone interviews that used to be common, but most coaches won’t take time to do anymore.
One of the topics: what he and his staff can glean from OSU’s non-contest with Savannah State. Of course, we’ve been debating what the Cowboys took from the game. But for a new coaching staff trying to get a feel for what OSU has in quarterback Wes Lunt, and others, was it at all helpful?
“Certainly, they dominated every facet and dominated from the opening whistle,” Rodriguez said. “They got some work in. Their starters didn’t play much; it was probably more like a scrimmage for them.
“But at the same time, they were ready to play. They did what they had to do and what they were supposed to do. I don’t think we can take a whole lot from that film, because I’m sure after the first couple of series, they were going to be very vanilla and were going to let the backups play the game out.”
