The Ball Doesn't Lie

The season has proven Alford to be what we knew at the outset -- a man with serious character issues who was, at best, a mediocre coach.

Josh Smith Inelegible?

4

"Wednesday night, it was disclosed that junior center Josh Smith did not travel with the team for this week's road trip due to an "academic issue". Sorry to see Josh struggle -- but it reinforces my belief that he just does not want to play basketball that uch.

Unfortunately, Dumbo Can't Fly

There is no excuse for this. Once more, UCLA looks like a school without a plan, without a direction and without a leader. It is unfair to the school and it is unfair to Ben Howland who is being...

Malcolm Jones Back to UCLA

21

During the draft, I kept thinking that it was too bad that Malcolm Jones had not stayed -- because it looks like we'd need him next year. Now, it appears he's coming back as a walk on. I've always liked him and hope he does well and earns some time to show how great he can be.

Rocky Long is joining the "punting is losing" group and will try to minimize the times SD State punts this year. Mike Leach is also a proponent of the strategy, It will be interesting to see how it works out for them. "Punting is winning" sure didn't work out for us.

RIP Bruin Great Bob Day

2

It is with a heavy heart that I write about the passing of Bob Day. He was a great Bruin and a good man. I didn't meet Bob at UCLA. I knew of him but our paths did not cross until I moved into an apartment above his in a small building in the "Hollywood Riviera" section of Redondo Beach, in 1968. I was in law school and he was running for a military team. We would joke that his daily run was longer than my commute. Bob was a part of what made those years very special. RIP Bob.
