09:46 AM ET 06.16 | Arizona Wildcats linebacker Brian Wagner, a graduate transfer from Akron who was the nation's leading returning tackler, has left the team. "I don't have love for the game anymore," Wagner told TucsonCitizen.com on Friday. "I told Coach that, and that was it. It was something I was thinking about for a long time. That's kind of where I'm at right now." Wagner was expected to be one of the top newcomers for first-year Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez, giving the Cats experience in a thin linebacker corps. Wagner worked as the first-string middle linebacker in UA's new 3-3-5 scheme for most of spring practice.

In RR's defense he never once said he cares about, or believes in "DEFENSE" as a whole. He refers to it as "Dee", and usually says he hasn't seen her, but is trying to find her because all he can think about is her coming.

Maybe they could get some tips from their Base Ball team, shut out the Bruins yesterday.

That is a better excuse then the Michigan players came up when he came to Ann Arbor too. RR is just a rolling train wreck. Sorry 'Zona I hope RR wins 1 game a year, nothing against 'Zona you are just the result of this bozo.

Get fined for over-practicing and then produce zero. Stay out of the heat RR.
