No Reason We Can't Have a Pac 10 Network -- If That's a Good Thing

I started to discuss this in another thread; but, rather than change its direction, I thought I'd post some thoughts here. My main point: There is no reason that a strong commissioner can't...

Why the Pac 10 Merger? Money Trumps All

As one of the curmudgeons opposed to the merger, I thought I'd post a lead  to an excellent commentary in Saturday's Houston Chronicle by Jerome Solomon in which he makes clear that loyalty,...

The Case for Baylor

Let me make one thing clear -- I am opposed to the proposed expansion of the Pac 10. Weeks ago, I said I preferred a Pac 9 accomplished by the elimination of the nation's dirtiest program. However,...

Senior Day -- Keeping it Bruin Classy

The Answers For Our Basketball Problems Are All Here

This morning, I finally put my finger on what bothers me most about our basketball team. The answer is simple. We are not playing by the principles of the pyramid. When all of our players and coaches put out the effort that will allow them to be "successful" -- within Coach's meaning, I will be satisfied. Those who play by the pyramid are never losers, no matter the score. If I were CBH, I would assign the book to the players, and discuss one principle, every day. Learning those lessons are as important as learning to shoot and defend. With a better understanding of the pyramid will come success -- defined the correct way.

Not 1 of Texas Top 100 HS Footballers Considering UCLA

Where have you gone, Bob Toledo? What once was a pipeline that brought us some great Bruins seems to have dried up. The Houston Chronicle lists the top 100 players, by position, and the schools to which they have committed or are considering. Although there are Pac 10 teams on the list, not one player is considering UCLA. I wonder whether we are recruiting here.

Random Thoughts on the Arizona Game and Where We Are
