Breaking news from Tucson in the run-up to the Duel in the Desert: apparently, Mike Stoops is safe.
Stoops, as seen on the right in a file photo in his favorite posture (screaming at referees), is not on the hot seat.
According to John Moredich of the Tucson Citizen, a story will run tomorrow that says that UofA president Robert Shelton, along with "several prominent boosters," are fully in support of Stoops. They're apparently "not thrilled with a 6-5" record in 2008 but they reportedly like where the program is going.
I'm speculating that "several prominent boosters" means Jim Click still likes Stoops.
Little Brother is 22-33 in 4+ seasons at Arizona including a meager 15-25 in the Pac-10. He's beaten us just once in his career; his first game against ASU in 2004 was the one in which Andrew Walter suffered a career-ending injury and Matt Miller dropped that 4th down pass to secure an upset for then 2-8 UofA against then 8-2 Arizona State.
