    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.

TUCSON, AZ - The Rich Rodriguez era continues in 2014 when the Wildcats look to build on their 16-10 record and back-to-back bowl wins in his first two seasons at the helm of the program. 

The Wildcats open Fall Camp on Saturday on campus looking for a new signal caller and with a new young quarterback of the defense.

At quarterback, the Wildcats repped 7-8 players during spring ball and will look to narrow that down to four for fall camp. In the mix are Texas-transfer sophomore Connor Brewer, JUCO-transfer junior Jerrard Randall, senior Jesse Scroggins (USC/El Camino College) and redshirt freshman Anu Solomon.

At linebacker, sophomore Scooby Wright will be looked upon to lead in a manner mature beyond his years. He played in all 13 games and started 12 at sam linebacker in 2013 and went on to earn Freshman All-America honors by 247sports.com and second-team Freshman All-America by Athlon Sports. He was named All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention with 83 tackles to rank No. 3 among the Wildcats and No. 2 among Pac-12 freshmen.

Wright has added 12 pounds of muscle in preparation for his sophomore season and taking over in the inside for the departed Jake Fischer.

Alongside Wright, true freshmen Jake Matthews, DeAndre’ Miller and Derrick Turituri also saw quite a bit of playing time. Joined with letterwinners Keoni Bush-Loo, Hank Hobson and Sir Thomas Jackson, the Cats have contenders at linebacker.
