Pictures of the new John Wooden statue from the internet. Was curious how it might look. Written underneath the statue: "Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to become the best of which you are capable." - John Wooden

UCLA's offense will get carded this week

13
UCLA will experiment with placards, featuring random illustrations, to signal in plays and formations. Among the cards UCLA fans can look for this week: Eric Cartman from "South Park," former Bruins Maurice Jones-Drew and Troy Aikman, the In-N-Out Burger logo and a banana. More info in this article too: UCLA looking for picture-perfect offense Mora says he hopes it means an even more up-tempo offense. Instead of coaches having to verbally communicate the different elements of the offense they want to run, they can simply hold up the proper card and everyone can see what the coaches want, thereby shaving off a few seconds from each play.

Rebound year for Datone Jones starts strong "I was chasing stats," Datone Jones said. "My biggest thing was making plays and chasing down quarterbacks and my ego and that was one thing I had to let go. I had to check my ego at the door. I was worried about the quarterback so much, I was looking in the backfield instead of playing the block and I wasn’t making the plays I should have been making." Thursday, that wasn't a problem. Jones made plenty of plays and said his focus going forward is to keep doing exactly that. And this time, he's not talking about the plays that get him on highlight videos or the stats sheet, he's talking about making whatever plays are necessary to help the team win. http://espn.go.com/blog/los-angeles/ucla/post/_/id/11545/datone-jones-starts-strong-in-rebound-year

We're going to China - UCLA Basketball

2

"Basketball is the most popular sport in China," Scott said from this week's Pac-12 meetings in Phoenix. "We're working on having UCLA play the equivalent of NCAA competition in China, as well as this being a goodwill and diplomatic tour." "UCLA will represent the Pac-12 and plant a flag for the conference. We expect this to be an annual basketball trip by our schools playing future collegiate teams and the Chinese national team." Hope it doesn't turn out like Georgetown!

Title: Overconfident? USC schedule lists UCLA as home game "Granted, USC has won five of the last six at the Rose Bowl. But whether it's the athletic department that organized the schedules that way or not, listing an away game vs. UCLA as a home game comes off strikingly overconfident. Even if Matt Barkley is under center." via USA Today.

Kevin Love stomps on Luis Scola's face

Will face a 2 game suspension... disappointing to hear about this. Sounds like it was intentional from what Love says in the report. Hopefully we don't hear more stories like this from Kevin Love...

Was just looking at the ESPNU 150 and saw that Ishmael Adams jumped up the rankings and now is rank #128. I guess word has been spreading of his stellar performance in the Army All-American game! Glad to see him get recognition! His profile and ucla recruiting pages haven't updated yet.
