Arizona has issues

Ryan Finley greets his readers Monday with two big issues facing Arizona, which will face a better-than-you-think Central Michigan squad on Saturday.

Who the heck is the Wildcats' quarterback?

And what's up with the big names on the injury list?

Coach Mike Stoops will have a news conference today at 11 a.m. (PDT). He may announce who won the quarterback battle between Matt Scott or Nick Foles. Or he may not. The guess here is Matt Scott is 1A, but both guys could play Saturday.

As for the injuries: receiver Delashaun Dean (hamstring), guard Vaughn Dotsy (finger) and tight end Rob Gronkowski (back) have been out or severely limited all preseason.

The coaches have been saying all along that all three should be ready to play, but this one is a big "we'll see," most particularly for Gronkowski, the Wildcats' best player.
