FWIW: Matt Barkley's Reddit AmA (ask me anything)

I was pleasantly surprised after coming across this, more so over the fact that he went out to engage the Reddit CFB community. It does drill into my head how much we're dropping the ball on pretty much everything social media-wise.

Just a tweet and a thought, but yeah, this would be scary good.

Reeves Nelson takes off to Lithuania

That will wrap up his collegiate career. I'm not sure how his attitude will work out while playing professional ball in Eastern Europe, seeing how some European coaches are a bit...rough.

Chin up, Bruins. At least Neuheisel never stooped to these lows.

World University Rankings: UCLA 13th best university in the world, $C #55

I've always taken the US News rankings with a grain of salt, particularly when other organizations constantly rank UCLA higher than $C academically, with US News being the anomaly.

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.

Former Bruin Matt Slater named ST Captain for Patriots

This was a nice surprise... he's been working away on special teams for the last four years, and it's been great to see things work out for him on the pro level. EDIT: Found a neat little blog short after putting up the fanshot; it's about his role for this season and where he's come from since his rookie year in the NFL.

Brandon Willis Officially Enrolled at UCLA

Willis is also eligible to start practicing today while we go through the petition process to see if he can play this season. Either way, welcome back (officially!), Brandon!

OT: NCAA basketball programs a metaphor for evolution?

Interesting read, even though the academic paper comes from a Dookie. The premise does seem a bit obvious, but I'm all for scientific sports metaphors anyways. Here's a link to the original academic paper as well.

Not only a larger field, but it's definitely stacked for a pre-season tourney: Kansas, Duke, Michigan, Tennessee, Memphis, and Georgetown.

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. Note that teams and apparel companies usually provide EA with any new designs or updates for in-game accuracy ahead of time, since the game comes out in early July (though it does nothing to alleviate the wait for the season to kickoff...lol).

OT: BC signs new deal with Under Armour

What's interesting here is that their former supplier was Reebok, which is owned by Adidas. Taking a look at their football unis next year, it looks pretty classy and simple (same thing with Auburn, another UA-supplied team). Something to think about if UCLA does move away from Adidas.

NCAA continues to strike down David, not Goliath

Came across this while on Deadspin...makes you wonder what the heck is going on with the NCAA and $C. Sigh.

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?

Another Great Article on President Aboya

After a long absence due to work, class, and a general lack of time...I'm back to posting. Anyways, a great story on WWL by Katz on Aboya's current graduate courseload and how he's been balancing it with Ben Ball. I didn't know that the political landscape in Cameroon looked grim right now, though.
