Five questions following Saturday's game

With Arizona losing to BYU on Saturday, there are plenty of questions that emerged regarding the 2007 football season. Here is a look at the biggest questions that came from the game.

1. Was that the offense?

After such a poor performance, it is difficult to remember that some perspective is needed. This was Sonny Dykes first game as an offensive coordinator and each player's first time in the system. Obviously more is to be expected of the offense, even if it was the first game, but there are going to be some growing pains.

Now if this goes on for the next two or three games, the worries that surround the Wildcats now will be legitimized, but until then it is a little difficult to truly believe Arizona is not going to be a solid team this season.

2. Is Willie Tuitama the right guy for the system?

Like the first question, that is something that we really cannot answer yet. He certainly did not look like it in the opening game, but he has not played too much competitive football lately and is still learning the new system.

The disheartening part about Saturday is that Tuitama often failed to look downfield and in such an offense, he will not be successful if he continues that habit.
