Olson Calls it Quits

It looks like the aging Wildcats basketball coach, Lute Olson, has called it quits.  Olson retires with 1 national title, 780 career wins, 23 consecutive NCAA tournament appearances, 11 Pac-10 titles, and countless victories against our Sun Devils.  Olson missed all of last year while dealing with "personal issues."  In Olson's absence, interim coach Kevin O'Neill led the overrated Wildcats to an undeserved tournament appearance, in which they lost in the first round.  The Sun Devils have fared well in recent times against Arizona, winning both games last year.  While we might miss yelling obscenities at old-man Lute, we certainly won't miss being beaten by his Cats.
