Two of the most incontestable, insurmountable, irrefutable records in Tucson sports history are Nick Foles’ 10,011 passing yards and Ka’Deem Carey’s 4,239 rushing yards.
They are stupefying numbers that reign after a century of Arizona football. As the years go by, they are likely to become mythical in stature.
Or will they?
By pure happenstance, Carey and Foles launch their NFL seasons on national TV next Friday night, Carey’s Chicago Bears vs. Foles’ Philadelphia Eagles. By then, UA football coach Rich Rodriguez will have begun auditioning to find a starting quarterback and tailback.
The count will start at zero.
