I might as well admit it now, I went to USC Law School. But wait, CRN has the same resume (except he also won a few games playing football). But in no way am I a trojan. I was born a bruin by my bruin mom and I spent some of my happiest days as a college student at UCLA.

In fact, going to law school across town made me a bigger UCLA fan than when I started. I was able to compare UCLA to u$c firsthand and I must say, there is no comparison. UCLA is a quality institution. $C is nothing more than overpriced smoke and mirrors. That's why I made sure to wear my UCLA gear each day on their turf before each one of our big rivalry games. It really is true what they say: once a bruin, always a bruin.

USC to make statement re NCAA findings

6

I just saw this on ESPN during lunch. USC is reportedly going to make a statement tomorrow regarding the NCAA investigation. This means they probably have the report now and the NCAA will release it Friday. As previously suggested, this may indeed explain the trogan times' latest smear campaign against Coach as an attempt to draw attention away from themselves... but then again, it may not. I don't even know if the findings will come out... wasn't it ESPN that said the findings would be released last week too? In any event, I'm not holding my breath.

mock draft - just for fun

10

This is just for fun and I know it's probably too early to start making any predictions. But check out where this particular draft has DC going... Yep. Lakers! Now, for selfish reasons, I would love to see DC in the purple and gold, and we know the lakers could use another good bruin on its team. But DC going 29th??? I suppose it's still first round, but I think one of the most efficient college guards would get selected earlier than 29. Anyway, the thought of being able to watch DC play for my second favorite team made a little happier today.

NCAA Investigates trojie Hackett

5

This probably won't lead to anything because the NCAA has repeatedly proved itself to be quick to turn a blind eye when it comes to the trojies. But it's nice to know they're at least taking a look at something that we've all thought to be at least a little suspicious... "The NCAA is looking into whether point guard Daniel Hackett’s arrangement to play for Southern California was part of a package deal that includes his father, who is the school’s strength and conditioning coach, according to a report."

UCLA and CBH gets some love

+

Finally, someone in the media is showing some appreciation for the Bruins this season. I don't particuarly agree that we're not a Final Four team this year, but I like what Jason King had to say. CBH's simple quote had a lot of meaning to me: "I love our players to death." I don't see that as some empty statement. These kids aren't just a bunch of thugs like the players at some other schools; they have character and they want to learn and better themselves. That will take us a long way. CBH knows how to pick them, and with some time, he knows how to mold them into championship contenders. I will never write one of CBH's teams off.

Bruins lose alum Eddie Ayers

Ayers lost his battle with lupus at the age of 54. I wasn't around when he played, but I've heard of many times. For the geezers out there, care to share a few stories about his career at UCLA?

Stephenson Appeal Denied

Looks like Stephenson must sit out a year before playing at USC. Seems Tyler Zeller of UNC is out for the season due to an injury too. I'm not sure any of this affects UCLA's run at another final four, but these guys have been the topic of discussion in the past.
