Is No. 22 Arizona’s early-season success most attributable to its high-scoring offense – or Popsicles?
According to Rich Rodriguez, the coaching staff started giving the players bomb Popsicles instead of “normal” ones after practice upon his arrival in the desert.
“These things are the mac daddy of Popsicles,” Rodriguez told USA Today’s George Schroeder. “We’re giving out BCS-level, playoff-bound rocket Popsicles. And if they come out with a better one, we’re going to get a better Popsicle.”
Which begs the question: What treats was RichRod giving out to players during his disastrous three years at Michigan? Prunes and dried apricots?
We can all agree that for Arizona, an upset win over third-ranked Oregon on Saturday would be sweeter than any Popsicle.
