Sight Unseen

New Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said he took the job without visiting Tucson in an interview with radio station KTAR.
“Yep, I sure did,” Rodriguez said. “I talked to about probably 10-or-15 people that have either lived there for an extended period of time or spent quite a bit of time there.
“To a person, every single one of them said it’s a great place to live. If somebody would’ve said, ‘I don’t know about this or that,’ maybe I would’ve said I needed to see it first, but heck, I signed sight unseen.”

    I’m sure he’ll love it when he goes out one night and sees 50 illegals running all over his property or even better, when he’s away and they decide to make his place home for the night. Or, he sees a little gun play between the Mexican drug cartels and the Border Patrol, nice move Richie, you dumbazz.

    How many D-1 head coaching jobs are available this year? (Maybe 10) The two highest profile jobs are not interested in RR. After you figure what an ASU would pay, the program potential and standard of living, I think you hit an ASU bid before it gets away.

    in other words – i signed before they could offer someone else.

    that said, i do think it’s a good fit. his system in the pac should do well.

    He prob talked to the same people I did when I went to the game there a couple years ago and I asked what there was to do at night. I was told Nogales is only a few miles away and there is a great show involving a woman and a horse. Rich Rod seems like the kinda guy where that would seal the deal.
