It's almost gameday.

In 32 hours (give or take) the Arizona Wildcats will open their 2013 season after months of practices and talk. We'll roll out a ton of coverage on the site tomorrow morning and even another blog later today.

But first, a few links worth checking out.

First, Gizmodo ranked the 17 worst uniforms in college football today. The UA didn't do well, ranking No. 13. Personally, this list makes me scratch my head a little bit. Oregon is ranked No. 17 and I would have put the Ducks in my top ten for college threads. 

Either way, Gizmodo had this to say about the UA's uniforms: "The Ombré effect. Great on hair, not so much on football uniforms."


Something the UA had a little more luck on was the Wall Street Journal's very cool graphic called "The Grid of Shame." It ranks all 125 major college programs based on several different factors. It's worth checking out. 


Sports Illustrated put together its list of the 40 best NFL prospects in college football right now. Surprisingly, UA running back Ka'Deem Carey didn't make the cut. ASU's Will Sutton comes in high at No. 11.
