73-year-old is coming back to coach, 24-year-old surprised


In case you haven't heard, Arizona head coach Lute Olson said he's coming back next year to coach.

In case you didn't know, Lutey left the team in November because of personal reasons and has only been back on the court to congratulate Jawann McClellan the seniors after the UCLA loss last Saturday.

After enduring this season of heartache, I don't think it's a horrible idea for him to return, if only to lure a player or two back to Arizona or keep Chase Budinger from going to the NBA draft. Let's face it, with both Chase and Jerryd Bayless heading to the NBA, Arizona should expect another mediocre season, to go along with all the ones we've had since 2001.

I'd have to say, the 2000s haven't been good to Britney Spears, the Arizona Wildcats or trans fats.

2003 wasn't so shabby...
Three everyday NBA players on the team (Frye, Igoudala, Walton plus Stoudamire) and a stupid loss against Kansas...
Plus, 05 wasn't that bad either... A 16-pt. blown lead against the Illini cost the Cats a trip to the Final 4...
Yes, the last couple years haven't been bad but the whole decade can't be taken at a loss...
