Update on O'Bannon's Lawsuit Against The NCAA

7

"This whole area of name and likeness and the NCAA is a disaster leading to catastrophe as far as I can tell," wrote Perlman, a former member of the NCAA Board of Directors and law professor specializing in intellectual property. "I’m still trying to figure out by what authority the NCAA licenses these rights to the game makers and others. I looked at what our student athletes sign by way of waiver and it doesn’t come close."

Coach Wright Comes Up Big With One Goal And One Assist In Tough Win Against Montenegro

5

"...two minutes later Adam Wright (Seal Beach, CA/UCLA/NYAC) found Ryan Bailey (Long Beach, CA/UC-Irvine/Newport WPF) inside for a score to even the match at 1-1." "Montenegro bounced back in the third, scoring the first goal of the period to draw within one, at 4-3, just 70 seconds into the quarter. Again the United States countered with two straight goals. This time it was Wright bulling his way to the cage and then lofting a lob shot past the keeper."

UCLA Coaches Martin and Klemm Ranked 8th and 9th Best Recruiters in Pac-12

4

Overall I thought Coach Klemm would have been ranked higher. When we win 8-9 games this year and handle Southern Cal it'll be a lot easier for our coaches to get out there and recruit. Ed Orgeron at $C was ranked #1 which isn't surprising.

New UCLA Study: Middle Class Families Have Too Much Crap

6

-Only 25 percent of garages could be used to store cars because they were so packed with stuff. -The rise of big-box stores such as Costco and Sam's Club has increased the tendency to stockpile food and cleaning supplies, making clutter that much harder to contain. -Fragmented dinners — those in which family members eat sequentially or in different rooms — threaten to undermine a sacrosanct American tradition: the family dinner.

Academic Senate Votes To Make Anderson School Private

1

The Academic Senate at the University of California at Los Angeles voted 53 to 46 Thursday to approve a proposal to stop accepting any state funds for the university's M.B.A. program, and to replace those funds with tuition revenue and private support. The proposal -- the subject of intense debate for nearly two years -- now goes to Mark Yudof, president of the university system, for final approval, which is expected.

Director Pete Hammer said the award is the largest single act of charity his organization has ever received – representing about one-fifth of the organization's annual revenue from donations."

UCLA's Poor Football Performance Team Keeps Non-Athlete GPA's High

+

"Their basic analysis shows that 'a 25 percent increase in the football team's winning percentage (or three additional wins) leads males to earn GPAs as if their SAT scores were 27 points lower.' Additional analyses (seeking to control for grade inflation, number of credits taken, and other factors) show varying degrees of diminished academic performance by men, but in all cases male students saw their grades dip in relation to female students there as the football team won more."

Why UCLA Bothers Me (Written by a Texas Fan)

3

"I watched both UCLA games this year. The bottom line is this: UCLA has a bunch of talented dudes who don’t care all that much. And with respect to talent, I’m not talking about recruiting classes, or rankings, or other supportive bullshit that people use when they can’t trust their own eyes (though UCLA has all those things too). I’m talking about pure on-field talent. UCLA is good. They have two NFL RBs – one a slick slasher, the other an angry bowling ball, a 6 foot 8 mutant TE who can run and has hands, appears to be open on every play, and had 100 yards receiving in one half against Houston. Naturally, they threw to him only once against San Jose St (a TD, of course) and he’s 2nd string. They have a 6-5 220 pound WR named Nelson Rosario who alternates between playing like Lord Nelson and Rosario Dawson and the OL is massive. They also have an array of highly recruited QBs who all excel at being injured except when playing Texas. " Sounds about right...
