How potentially good is Jefferson? Arizona assistant coach James Whitford compares him to former UNLV All-American Stacey Augmon.
Ummm Doesnt he know the history of AZ and UNLV.
One never compares anyone from our team to unlv's.

we should fire Whitford!
Mentioning the names of any 1988 Oklahoma player, the school that Steve Nash played for or anyone ever associated with UNLV is grounds for termination!

Unless the comparison is accurate. I hadn't thought about it. Jefferson, to me, feels a lot like former Wildcat Richard Jefferson coming out of high school. Already a sound defender, great size for his position, tremendous athleticism for his position, outside shooting will improve and by the time he leaves for the NBA Hollis-Jefferson will be a polished college player.

Honestly, I could care less who the compare their on-court/on-field accumen to. If a player plays like James Harden, then so be it. I'd rather not have my players compared to ASU players off the field, or most ASU hoops players on the court. But if you are going to promise me the second coming of Stacy Augmon, where do I sign up?

BEAR DOWN boys... The best is yet to come....
Deron Williams (Illinois 2005), Devin Davis (Miami OH - 1995), Jay Williams (Duke 2001, he just fouled Gardner again), Jeff Graves (Kansas 2003),
Keith "Mr." Jennings (East Tennessee 1992), Eduardo Najera (Oklahoma 1999)
Please don't ever mention Deron Williams again. I still get sick just thinking about that game.
Bear Down Arizona
Reggie Miller is an absolute must when listing those who left an legacy of disdain. After beating us in Tucson he flipped off the crowd. A monster of a competitor and proved he was a great player long term, but someone who just drove me insane.
McLean from ucla
He's calling our game on thursday and he is not even the best BB player in his family.
I'll never forget the "Who'd want to play for Lute Olson" comment. I hope he gets hit by Kevin Parrom diving for an out of bounds ball and knocked unconscious.
Peb13 beat me to it. Without a doubt McLean from UCLA is on that list.
Definately McLean and a Few players from Stanford.
I was only counting NCAA tournament foes.
WIsh he would have been a Wildcat. He did give us fits though.
Being originally from Indiana, I loved it when he played for the Pacers. Even more, when he retired, he retired as a Pacer and didn't flip flop around the league for an extra year here or there.

MEMO...we are talking about Tourney players only.
Ohio was the dreds kid
ETSU was the whole team
ILLiNoise was the refs
Duke was lack of refs calls
Santa Clara was...well you know who.
Note to Zip..........you started the thread with Augman from UNLV, not only did we play him during the NCAA, but during the regular season too on occasion.
Just sayin'. And when you are talking about why we have such an intense dislike for the guy it was because it was not a one off performance..........it was a collection of games. That is why imo the UNLV guys and UCLA guys like Miller and McLean are far and above at the top of the detest list.
The others listed were one offs and merely from the heat of a battle. That is not the case with the Rebels and Bruins.
BTW, are you sending the list to Santa Claus?

Great thread guys.
I really enjoyed walking down memory lane.
The Williams guys top my list...and Najera.
Najera screwed up my vacation in Mexico. Go figure.
Ok just a point of clarification here. Steve Nash did not destroy us at all. Matter of fact he was terrible against us. He was a freshman and went 1-7 and 0-3 from behind the arc. 1 for 10 is horrid. Combine that with 4 assists and 3 turnovers and I would call that below average. He did finish with 10 points but 8 of those were in the last two minutes when we were fouling.
The guy who killed us was Pete Eisenrich. He was the blond haired kid who was draining everything from outside. As he puts it Stokes didn't know how to guard a 6'9" guy who was knocking down 3 pointers. He said Lute finally switched Mills to him in the second half, but it was too little too late. Pete finished with 19 point, 8 rebounds, 3 assists in 37 minutes and was player of the game. So don't give Nash anymore credit for beating us. Put Eisenrich on this list. I know he would appreciate it.
Dang it CYCAT....I want it to be NASH...it makes for a better story as to our failure to beat a lowly SLUGS.
WATO....Stop bringing facts into my fantasy.
Let's just hope that no one from TOSU makes it to the list.
I know that the absolute worst moment in my Wildcat life was 89'... the Lofton flop and the 3 by Hunt... to end the game...
That stole our first Title... Brutal...
I was counting everyone and obviously missed several.
Cry baby McLean... those were good UCLA teams and we had great games against them and he was good, but I think Lute was well over .500 against Harrick. McLean, in particular, took a lot of the sting away at McKale one year when he got a late technical that sealed the game for us! He was just a joke after that.
Well if we are going away from the tournament...
I want to add Todd Lickte twice they kept us from sweeping the Pac 10...
Deron Williams and Illinois will always top this list for me. Btw, thanks for bringing that up again!
Time to nut up or shut up
My two worst were the Lofton flop and Illinois. I was in Mud Bugs for the flop and the place just absolutely died. Not even $.10 drafts would keep it going that night. For Illinois, there wasn't enough vodka in my freezer to dull that one and normally, I could keep the Russian Red Army content for about a week.
