Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez and linebacker Cody Ippolito and offensive lineman Jacob Alsadek each struggled unsuccessfully to hold back tears as they remembered teammate Zach Hemmila, who died this week in his sleep of as of yet unknown causes. "It's probably best for us to stay busy," Rodriguez said. The team will head north to practice at the Arizona Cardinals facility Wednesday and Thursday before returning for a Hemmila viewing in Tucson Thursday night in advance of the Friday funeral.

Arizona held its first practice following the death of center Zach Hemmila on Tuesday afternoon, going an hour and 30 minutes in shorts and helmets after a torrential downpour that caused the cancelation of the previously scheduled morning workout. Players and coaches were mostly low-key going onto and off the field and there was no media availability as the Wildcats process the sudden loss. The short practice itself was mostly low-key, too, at least until some issues with special teams work raised the ire of coach Rich Rodriguez and a couple of assistants. It wasn't business as usual but it was clear everyone around the program is seeking some degree of routine to get through the painful loss.
