Stoops enjoys calm, controversy-free signing day

This time last year, Arizona head football coach Mike Stoops made headlines on National Signing Day — but for the wrong reasons.
After losing a handful of prized recruits to Arizona State, Stoops called the Sun Devils a “junior college” and insinuated that Arizona’s rivals to the north use relaxed academic standards to entice prospective recruits.
His comments ignited a firestorm of controversy and Stoops quickly apologized.

Wednesday’s 2009 National Signing Day was a much different story.
