Arizona Football: We Gone Done Made Another Western

Posted By on Wed, Jul 24, 2013 at 6:31 PM

Just when you thought it was safe to go back onto YouTube ...

The University of Arizona football team has released another, ahem, promotional video shot at Old Tucson Studios, this time including a dozen or so impact players along with head coach Rich Rodriguez in an endeavor that probably stretched the wardrobe department to the brink to find Western wear that would comfortably fit linebackers and defensive tackles.

The biggest difference between this video and the previous (which featured only coaches, one of whom got 'tossed' out of the saloon) is the well-done splicing of game highlights from last season into scenes of the players moseying thru the swinging doors and posing, like all cowboys used to do.

Somewhat surprisingly, seeing as the football program has made every effort to shield Ka'Deem Carey from media attention (NOTE: he's not going to the Pac-12 Media Days, where you usually feature your star players), he is among the participants in the video.

In actual on-the-field news, the UA also announced today its training camp schedule leading up to the Aug. 30 opener against Northern Arizona. Practices begin Aug. 4, including a three-day sojourn to Fort Huachuca Aug. 8-10, and Media Day is Aug. 18.
