    UA did not regain honor by beating Sun Devils

    I protest the Wildcat’s claim that UA football has “”redeemed itself”” in beating the ASU team. Had the Wildcat referred only to the loss against Oregon, I would have understood. The UA team indeed performed better in this game than in the previous one. However, the Wildcat referred to the now-famously boisterous UA fans too, as if they are likewise redeemed by beating the Sun Devils. Beating the ASU team in no way vindicates this university’s fans from its pathetic and childish conduct in the “”bottle-throwing incidents and general riotousness”” at the Oregon game. The UA fans were responsible for that one, not the UA football team. Daily Wildcat, don’t insinuate that the fans are forgiven simply because Tucson trumped over Tempe this year. Even if the UA football team regained “”lost honor”” this weekend, the fans most certainly did not.
