The winless Arizona Wildcats are showing some signs of desperation just four weeks into the 2021 season.
Coming off a 41-19 blowout loss to No. 3 Oregon on Saturday (their fourth loss of the season), the Wildcats are calling on the University of Arizona student body for reinforcements.
On Tuesday afternoon, the program shared information for a midseason walk-on tryout.
The tryout is set to take place on Oct. 12, just a few days after the team faces off against No. 20 UCLA on Saturday.
🚨 WALK-ON TRYOUT 🚨
— Arizona Football (@ArizonaFBall) September 28, 2021
After opening up their 2021 season with a defeat to the BYU Cougars, the Wildcats notched two more losses to San Diego State and Northern Arizona — both at home.
So far this season, the struggling PAC 12 program has utilized three different quarterbacks — combining for nine interceptions through just four games. In Saturday’s blowout loss to the Ducks, sophomore quarterback Jordan McCloud (the team’s most recent starter) threw for a whopping five picks.
As Arizona becomes further intrenched in conference play, its schedule will only get more difficult. After Saturday’s matchup against the top-25 Bruins, head coach Jedd Fisch and his squad will finish out the year with seven PAC 12 opponents.
Unless the Wildcats can yield some sort of miracle in these walk-on tryouts, a repeat of last year’s winless season could be entirely possible.
