Interesting stat about penalties

5

Check out the very bottom...this year in college football, the team with MORE penalties was 332-284 (81 games saw both teams have the same number of penalties). Maybe Mora isn't so wrong about that

This is currently the front page of uclabruins.com. We've given the Morgan Center a lot of deserved grief for their "promotional", but I think this one is really good.

Darius Bell switches to WR

13

According to Foster (and a few others) on twitter. Probably a smart move, since he clearly was no better than 4th on the QB depth chart. Hopefully he can make an impression

FSU destroys #3 UNC by 33

12

Not really sure where the UCLA angle is, but it seems like there's one somewhere (I guess this is the kind of loss that UCLA would have lately - if we ever get to #3 again). Safe to say this may be the most shocking score of the season.

OT - Student athlete screwed over by school and NCAA

8

This has nothing to do with UCLA but it's a story that I feel all college basketball fans should read. I took special interest in this because I actually know this kid (started his career at my school), but it's still an eye-opening story about how much control the NCAA and individual schools have over their players.

Bruins win "Class Act of the Year" from ESPN

1

"UCLA players -- This past Wednesday, after their final practice of the regular season was complete, the Bruins hoisted lame-duck coach Rick Neuheisel on their shoulders and carried him off the field. Neuheisel had been fired two days earlier after a 6-6 finish and a 50-0 loss to crosstown rival USC. As he was carried off the field, Neuheisel playfully spelled out "U-C-L-A" with his arms. But when later asked about the players' heartfelt gesture, he had to pause to compose himself."

Kyle Anderson to UCLA?

10

Gold is reporting that multiple other sources have said that Anderson is "UCLA's to lose". He's making his announcement tomorrow. Anderson is the #4 prospect in the country according to Scout. Haven't heard his name mentioned with UCLA much but this would be an incredible get. Anderson profile: http://scouthoops.scout.com/a.z?s=75&p=8&c=1&nid=3896267

Ayers struggles at the Combine

11

He also only benched 17 reps, which is low for a guy with his size. We all know that combine speed doesn't always equal football speed, but this could hurt his draft stock pretty significantly unless he can rebound at UCLA's pro day.

A look back at 2007 recruiting

9

With the recent unrest about the quantity and ranking of our prospects this recruiting season, I looked back at the most recent 4 year class (2007) to see how well the ESPNU 150 panned out. Notice anyone missing? Hint: His name starts with Brian, ends with Price, and anyone with half a brain knew he was a future superstar in college. Just more proof that ESPN recruiting doesn't know a thing, so let's not get too worked up over rankings. Go Bruins.

"I'm not sure the Bruins will be ready for their close up come March, but by the start of next season they should be ranked in the preseason top five."

Westbrook Goes Nuts on Chicago

28 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists on over 50% shooting. Quite a start to what should be a terrific year for Russ.

Ireland's pre-game Texas prediction

Don't know if anyone caught this, but I just thought it was pretty amusing. Scroll to the bottom of the page and check out what Ireland predicted the score of last week's game to be.

Barnes to sign with the Lakers

19

Confirmed by David Aldridge's twitter here. Good for Matt. He'll thrive in LA coming off the bench with Odom.

Farmar agrees with the Nets

21

3 years/12 million. per Ric Bucher through ESPNEWS. I wonder what this means for him and/or Devin Harris. Good for him though.

AA continues his solid play

1

Arron had another typical Ben Ball game today with 14 points on 6-6 shooting. His plus minus was +18, and just as impressively, he held Manu Ginobili and Roger Mason to 16 points combined on 4-17 shooting.

"It's been very poor coaching on my part to not recognize that (we needed to play zone) earlier," Howland said. "It's not something I want to do. But it's something we need to do in order to be competitive."

With 2 guys on the 1st team, only Florida and Alabama had more than the Bruins. TCU was the only other school with 2. Congrats guys!

If there were a stock car race between all the frauds, egomaniacs and two-faced weasels I've ever covered, Lane Kiffin would have the pole position all to himself. Kiffin is a used car salesman with a whistle. Wait, that's not fair to used car salesmen. He ditched Tennessee for USC after just 13 games. The remaining five years on his contract, the players he left behind, the nine high school recruits who planned to enroll early, they all meant nothing to Kiffin. Kiffin doesn't care. That's because Kiffin is about Kiffin. He sold Fords on Monday, Chevys on Tuesday. Just change the business card and the mailing address. His scorched-earth coaching policy isn't concerned with collateral damage. All that bluster about beating Florida, and singing "Rocky Top" all night long? Nothing more than a Hefty bag full of Kiffin verbal garbage. All those recruiting pitches he made? Empty promises. (By the way, full disclosure: I'm a Tennessee grad.) Whatever happens, it will take years for Kiffin to patch and caulk the gaping holes in his credibility. If you were a recruit, why would you believe a word he said? On the December 2008 day he was introduced as Tennessee's head coach, Kiffin told reporters: "I want the Tennessee family to know this: This is what I'm going to give you. I'm rolling my sleeves up and going to work. I'm not promising you how many wins, how many championships. I can't do that ... but I can tell you this right now: No one is going to outwork us. No one is going to outwork me as a head coach and no one is going to outwork our staff that we put together. That's the promise I'm giving you, the wins will come after that." All seven of them. Some promise, eh?

USC doesn't care about (the NCAA). I think Garrett saw the recent ESPN documentary on Miami's football program and thought it was an instructional video.

"I just wanted everybody to know I completely disagree with his decision," Sanchez said, unable to stifle laughter. "Statistics show that it's not a good choice.

Sure, Rick Neuheisel and UCLA wanted to return to the postseason this year, but backing into a second-year bowl in the Northeast against a perennial doormat program isn't going to get the fan base too excited....Temple 10, UCLA 9 - ESPN's Will Harris I know of a few (hundred) UCLA fans that are pretty excited about an east coast bowl game...

Texas Game next year in doubt?

22

Obviously, nothing is close to final, but this is still interesting. As great as the recruiting and exposure would be, I wonder if it would be better to get a slightly lower level team on our NC schedule. I'll be watching closely to see how this plays out.

Paul Richardson Re-commits

4 star wide receiver Paul Richardson from Gardena Serra verbally re-committed to UCLA. UCLA now has 17 commitments for the class of 2010.

Two UCLA Commits Named to the UA All American Game

RB Jordan James and K Kip Smith are both members of the white team. Potential recruits DT George Uko and S Deitrich Riley are also on the white team. No UCLA prospects are on the black team. Congrats to all of these guys.
