Statement from Rich Rodriguez's attorney to ESPN in response to the lawsuit filed against him by his former agency alleging breach of contract: "Coach Rodriguez had an 'at-will' agency relationship with CAA that began in 2011. He paid CAA fees in excess of $280,000 through 2015, when he terminated the relationship. Rodriguez never entered in to a written contract with CAA, nor did he ever verbally agree to pay fees for any period after 2015." Rodriguez will fight this lawsuit "vigorously," his attorney said.

Which college football conference is No. 1 for 2017?

After a (sort of) down year, the SEC is loaded again in 2017. But the ACC and Big Ten are right there, and the Pac-12 and Big 12 aren't far off. So which league enters 2017 as the deepest in the country?

Donavan Tate, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2009 Major League Baseball draft, has enrolled at Arizona and officially joined the football program as a walk-on quarterback, according to school spokesman. Coach Rich Rodriguez told fans at an event in May that Tate would be joining the program. Tate was the No. 6-ranked athlete in the Class of 2009 and signed a letter of intent with North Carolina, but he opted for baseball after the San Diego Padres gave him a $6.25 million signing bonus.

I'm told that Cardinals inside linebackers coach Larry Foote was putting Paul Magloire through position drills at Arizona's pro day today. He ran an unofficial 4.55 in the 40, 25 reps on the bench, 9'11" on the broad jump.

I'm told that Arizona safety Paul Magloire will have a pre-draft visit with the New York Giants the first week in April. One of the biggest combine snubs this year. Led the Wildcats with 81 combined tackles (58 solo), 5.5 tackles for a loss and 2.5 sacks last year.

Magic number to keep Rich Rodriguez off hot seat

If Rich Rodriguez can navigate the first half of Arizona's schedule, the Wildcats could be set up for a strong finish and bowl appearance. That should be enough to keep Rodriguez in Tucson.
