Not sure how many folks saw this news but we wanted to pass this on. San Jose State has hired Ron Caragher (pronounced CARE-ah-grrr) as their new head coach. Caragher is going to replace Mike...

Season Recap, Not A "Harbinger of Doom" Edition

Reflecting on the season and how things got better, instead of getting worse. Maybe I also just like writing "harbinger of doom."

Pregame Guesses: Post Pac-12 Title Game Edition

The author was really disappointed immediately after the Pac 12 Championship Game, but the ensuing week has put the game and the season in a more refined perspective.


? for the Community regarding trick plays ...

I have a quick question for the community: I think I've seen every play of the season or at least listened to it on the rado. But there is something I can't remember. Did we run any trick plays...


Is This "Our" Drew Gordon Being Mocked by Deadspin?

The player committing the comically egregious flop in this video is named Drew Gordon. But the footage is sort of grainy. Can anyone tell if it's "our" Drew Gordon? And -- if so -- LOL!!! The...


Trojans In The NFL

Anyone else notice that Carson Palmer and the Oakland Raiders, Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets and Matt Cassell and the Kansas City Chiefs are a combined 8-25? The Raiders (who also have Matt...

Pregame Guesses: Pac 12 Title Game Edition

UCLA played what seemed to be an uncharacteristically conservative game last week against Stanford; they'll have to play with more reckless abandon to reverse the outcome this week.

The Bruins knocked the Southern Cal monkey off their backs last week and fans should enjoy whatever happens the rest of the season.


Russell Westbrook has never missed a game ...

I"m watching the Clippers and the Thunder and just heard a stat that I had to share. Russell Westbrook has never missed a game. Not in high school. Not at UCLA. Not with the Thunder in the NBA. ...


Speaking of UCLA and USC ...

has anyone else noticed that former UCLA and USC offensive coordinator Norm Chow is head coach of the worst team in college football? Hawaii. Actually, I can't prove that. But they only have one...

Ben Howland's pathetic excuses for UCLA basketball's latest underwhelming performance would embarrass Jim Mora.

Mike Brown Fired By the Lakers - A Lesson For UCLA


If Mitch Kupchak were UCLA's AD, would Karl Dorrell have lasted five years? Would Rick Neuheisel have lasted four years? Hell, would Ben Howland still be UCLA's head basketball coach?

Pregame Guesses: Washington State Cougars Edition


The last two games, a comeback win against Arizona State in Tempe and a blowout against a pretty good Arizona team prove the Bruins are a good team this year. Washington State is not a good team...
