UCLA Class of '09, and I already feel old. I love sports and video games, and I've been blessed to work in both industries already.
RT @jordanadams1231: I was just thinking for the first time I could be playing with @KyleAnderson5 @tonyparker32 and Shabazz # SCARY !!!Just a tweet and a thought, but yeah, this would be scary good.
OT: A flash mob wedding proposal in Bruin Plaza between two Bruins! Saw it a couple of days ago but looks like it hasn't been posted here, so enjoy!
adidas and jerseys have always been a point of debate here, particularly after the TECHFIT fiasco, but here's a pretty interesting look at the Ohio Bobcats getting their black alternates that had me wondering about our team's reaction when they got the stretchy jerseys. To note, their supplier is Russell Athletic, but the reaction is priceless, regardless.
Indiana State recently redid their court and while they've had it named in honor of Coach since '08, it's a neat little reminder.
This is a screenshot from NCAA Football 11, taken from their official page on Facebook. It looks like we have "new" away uniforms for this fall, with the Adidas logo centered on the collar (like Michigan), and it seems that we've gone back to the dark blue instead of powder blue on the shoulders.

Gotta love Page 2.
...and this is Lane Kiffin's idea of a poster photo shoot at Tennessee. LOL.
Anyone can have a lean decade. The Bruins have tradition, They have a smarter, wiser Rick Neuheisel, the first UCLA coach to make Pete Carroll work harder in Los Angeles recruiting in the USC coach's nine years. The Bruins have a solid, veteran coaching staff and nowhere to go but up. And, seriously, we're going to have 40 teams and not have the Rose Bowl's home team?Ivan Maisel, selecting UCLA as the 30th pick in WWL's "College Football Mock Draft".
A blogger from Bruins Nation breaks down EA Sports NCAA Football 2010: UCLA Season Simulation v Tennessee
Here's a simulation using NCAA Basketball 09 from IGN (video game website). The video (the fourth option on the right) shows gameplay from the closing moments of the first half; FYI, the sim has us winning the game: http://sports.ign.com/articles/963/963838p1.html
Bumped. GO BRUINS. -N This year has obviously been different, with the media casting (and the president) casting us as the underdog in last night's game (interesting fact: 70% or so of...
