Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - The Arizona Wildcats football team continues to build on the tradition started at Fort Huachuca as the team revisits the post one week each year during August.  Mike Stoops started it and Rich Rodriguez has carried over the military touch to football camp.

The team typically ends the week long stay with a scrimmage and team training day. Saturday was a bit different as Rich Rod called off the scrimmage after he felt the team simply wasn't ready, in more ways than one.

Team training day did go as planned on Sunday and maybe that was a good thing. After the offense, particularly the quarterbacks, have struggled with execution, trading x's and o's for military obstacle courses may hopefully shake the funk some of the players have found themselves in, maybe.

Tucson News Now photojournalist Adam Thompson followed the team through the obstacle course from start to finish. Here is a look at some of your favorite Wildcats under the watchful of some new "coaches."
