Grantland: Harbaugh, Heisman Hopefuls, and Hair: Meet the 2015 Preseason College Football Triangle All-Stars

FOOTBALL IS BACK! The 2015 college campaign kicked off Thursday night, and boy was it a doozy. It was also just the tip of the iceberg of chaos and thrills and fun that awaits us this fall, and we’re pretty excited about that. So to celebrate the return of this beautifully bizarre sport, we’re honoring our preseason lettermen: Some of them are the best at what they do. Some of them are the most fun. Some of them are hair. Together, they’re the 2015 Triangle All-Stars.

We saw how much Arizona missed linebacker Scooby Wright, who injured his knee in the first quarter, when UTSA rolled up 525 yards on the Wildcats. The reigning PAC-12 defensive player of the year was scheduled for an MRI Thursday night, but coach Rich Rodriguez hopes Wright will be healthy soon. "I don't think it's the bad MCL or ACL, but I hate to speculate," he said. "So we'll see what happens."
