TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Most times when a new coach takes over a program, the expectations are tempered. Arizona is looking to contend for a Pac-12 South title in Kevin Sumlin's first season.
The Wildcats are loaded with talent offensively, are led by one of the nation's most dynamic players and have a chance to be much better defensively than they were under Rich Rodriguez. Why not anticipate being in contention for a division title?
"I think my expectation is to win," Sumlin said. "It sounds kind of harsh, but I have to take care of everybody's expectations. I understand what the consequences are, believe me. I set the bar high for our program, I set the bar high for our players. That's the way I've always done things."
