Rich Rodriguez is your huckleberry.
The Arizona staff got together, dressed up in full old West garb and did a promotional video in an old Western theme for the 2013 season. This is the beauty of the offseason.
Check out the video for "Hard Edge" (we especially like tight ends coach Charlie Ragle showing off his acting chops getting thrown out of a saloon, and the executive producer credit at the end to Rita Rodriguez, Rich Rod's wife):
GoAzCats.com points out that Rodriguez has said he's a fan of the 1976 Western "The Outlaw Josie Wales," so he probably had a blast doing the video. It actually looks like the entire staff was having fun, which makes it entertaining. And, there's Rich Rod in a full costume, which is worth it by itself.
So, to honor "Tombstone," which obviously takes place in Arizona and ranks somewhere in the "Caddyshack," "Animal House," "Rounders," "Old School," and "Big Lebowski" annals among most quotable movies, we have to wonder how they could miss a scene with Rodriguez yelling, "The Sun Devils are finished, you understand? I see the devil horns, I kill the man wearing it! So run, you cur. Run! Tell all the other curs the Wildcats are coming! You tell 'em I'm coming, and hell's coming with me, you hear? Hell's coming with me!"
Maybe they're saving the Tombstone dialogue for the sequel.
