New Location for the Meyer and Renee Luskin Center


You may remember that many faculty were upset that the new Luskin Conference and Guest Center was going to be built where the Faculty Club is now. The administration has announced that the Luskin Center's new location is going to be where Parking Lot 6 is--a new seven-story building at the center of the campus, steps from Pauley Pavillion. Kind of makes you think that an on-campus football stadium certainly would be possible, doesn't it?

Women's Basketball v. Stanford: UCLA Dads & Daughters Day


Thought people would want to know about this--the UCLA v. Stanford women's basketball game on February 20 is the second annual Dads and Daughters Day. 2 tickets, 2 t-shirts, 2 commemorative photos, and a carnival area with a free picnic lunch, games, and female Bruin athletes signing autographs...all for just $20! On top of all of that, the game will be one of the biggest of the year for Coach Caldwell and our Bruins. Spread the word!

Let @UCLAAthletics know that we want information


(as posted in Achilles' Getting the "Cairo Treatment" from UCLA football fanshot: If you're on Twitter, how about a @ bomb to @UCLAAthletics? I know that whoever tweets under that account is probably a lowly staffer or work study student who has no power at all and doesn’t deserve any abuse, but I think that if they see that they are getting bombarded with questions about the deafening silence on football news then hopefully we can prod them into saying something, ANYTHING. Let’s keep it respectful, but persistent. Update (BN): Here is a recommended tweet: @UCLAAthletics please provide us w credible info. re. search for our new DC asap. Tired of mediocrity in #UCLA football

Heisman Pundit: USC "commits suicide" by hiring Kiffin
