mcintoshucla2013.jpgTucson, AZ – With some prized recruits in attendance, the Arizona Wildcats did not disappoint. Though the recruits were all defensive, after watching this game, it’s impossible to think that any other school would be as fun for a WR or a QB.

Dane Wright had yet another incredible game, he was 15/22 for 332 yards, 4 TDs and 1 INT, though the INT was a first half hailmary that got picked off. But what impressed everyone was that Dane spread the ball around, took sacks, and did not force throws. Going into the final games of the season, he looks like an NFL quarterback playing against Junior High practice squads. Though UCLA was exceptionally quick on defense, they were not quick enough to get to Wright who kept eluding them and finding open recievers.

“A little bit of luck,” said Wright after the game. “And a lot of help from the O-line and my recievers. Especially Mike McIntosh, that guy is going to be a superstar one day.”

McIntosh (pictured) made a beautiful catch in the endzone for a TD and finished the game game with four catches for 75 yards and a TD, including one where he went over the middle, got hit very hard and held on. Something Jason Weaver has been strongly criticized for in the season.

“Are you serious?” asked Weaver after the game. “My drops? I had six catches for 215 yards and 2 TDs today. And you want to talk about drops? That’s like complaining that your new Ferrari doesn’t have enough trunk space.”uclaint.jpg

On the other side of the ball, the Arizona defense continues to make a case that they might be the strongest in school history. With a pick on the first play, and two more during the game, the defense was aggressive, fast, and very talented. Of course, Kevin Bonds, AGAIN, was in the middle of everything. Six tackles, 2 TFL and a sack. After the UCLA QB threw his second pick, some fans and boosters in the crowd were seen holding up a sign that said “He’s no Josh Zelman,” referencing the superstar QB who is now plays in the NFL. Many think next year that opposing quarterbacks will be faced with the memory of Dane Wright, who is setting the bar for excellence in Quarterbacking in the desert.

“Hey, I’m lucky. Everyone is so scared of John and Patrick that they leave me open. I’m just glad that I’m not getting stiff armed and looking like a bitch.”
