Check out the line-up for the Israeli team. Notice the familiar names batting 4th and 5th? I had no idea they were Jewish, but Go Bruins, Go Israel (sorry I'm biased).

2. Good news for the UCLA Bruins, who have defined mediocrity for the past decade (64 wins, 63 losses): the U.S. Open begins today at Olympic Country Club in San Francisco. In the previous four years in which Olympic held the Open, UCLA finished in the top 10: 1955 (4th, 9-2); 1966 (5th, 9-1); 1987 (9th, 10-2) and 1998 (8th, 10-2). The Bruins haven’t won the Pac-12 since.

Stanford Kickoff Time: 7:30pm PDT

Gametime will be at 7:30pm PDT. I have already bought 18 tickets, which after driving down to the Rose Bowl may have been a mistake. I guess that on the bright side, there'll be lots of time for tailgating.

Farmar to Play For Euroleague Runner-Up

Words cannot describe how excited I am about this. Finally a UCLA player will be donning a slightly different shade of gold and blue and suit up for my favorite professional basketball team, Maccabi Tel-Aviv (as if my username isn't a give away). Now I am really hoping the lockout persists.

Recruiting vs. On Field Performance

Not surprising is how bad our winning percentage is, somewhat surprising is how highly our recruiting has been the last 10 years, I'm sure Neuheisel's first few classes helped a lot with this relatively high ranking. Also, guess who's #1. Clue: Sanctions.

Barnes to Return to UNC

Well, I suppose it's somewhat surprising but not too much because somehow Roy Williams retains high draft picks like crazy. Too bad we can't keep our questionable first round picks.

Plus, there's that very particular Westwood connection, which UCLA guys always tout as very...

Plus, there's that very particular Westwood connection, which UCLA guys always tout as very important and which Baron has always seemed to prize at least as much as he has any sense of team identity since becoming a pro.

How the Heat Got Beat By Two Bruins

LenDale White "misses" Petey

Clearly LenDale appreciates Cheatie's concept of Trojan Family.

Best Universities in North America According to the THE

Just another ranking, and look who checks in at #8. The school across town somehow snuck it's way into the Top 50. Also, I'm not sure if I completely agree with this there is some weird stuff going on after the Top 10.

Today while I was on one of those double sided weight machines, this kid politely asks me if I went to USC. Though slightly flustered I said, "No. UCLA" and pointed to the front of my shirt and shorts. Then I asked him where he was from and he said he went to USC. At that point I told him "I’m sorry" and pointed to how my shirt, while having a Trojan logo, said "SUC" in letters that were 3-4inches in height across my back. Read On.

Pictures From My Visit To MSG

I was lucky enough (or not), to go watch our team play in person last week at Madison Square Garden. Though a Villanova fan almost tried to start a fight with me because he couldn't handle the fact...

Former Trojan Arrested (Shocking...)

Junior Seau was arrested in Oceanside after beating his girlfriend and then managed to drive his car off a cliff.

By the time kickoff rolls around, the stadium will be half-empty, and the Cal fans who missed the sales pitch will be pondering, "Hey, why does this look like a UCLA home game?"

Cal guys trying to be clever. Last time I checked our average attendance was ~5k more than theirs

Playing Without Your Top QB's: An awfully familiar feeling

As we have all seen by now, our Bruins trounced the Cougars of Houston by a 31-13 (palindrome!) score, while for us the biggest story was the offense showing a sign of life, for Houston it was kind...

Stanford Memories: The End of a Streak

A member of Bruins Nation gets nostalgic over fond memories of UCLA's recent football victories against Stanford.

The Kitten Drops Down the Hammer

Another one of Kitten's Trogan band of thugs is suspended indefinitely. As we all know across town indefinitely means one day. My guess here given this player's past is one week.

Oregon State Player gets Tased

Really strange story about how an OSU player got caught naked (and drunk) at a random home. Mike Riley channeled his anti-Kiffin, and dismissed him from the team.

6 Degrees of Separation for NCAA Crusade

For those who don't know, the NCAA has been on a mission to get all the agents out of college football. In doing so, it has investigated five schools. Here's how they all tie up and end up across town...

Screenshots I took from two World Cup games of UCLA being repped in the crowd.

Trogan 13 Year Old Recruit's School Under Investigation

I just came across this on Yahoo! Sports, and it's an interesting short read. Who would have thought this 13 year old who's "committed" to Second Choice is involved in a scandal???

Dave Roberts has cancer

Saw this on the SF Giants SBN blog. Hope this Bruin overcomes his battle with lymphoma. Go Bruins.

List of Adidas Schools

Hope it is ok to link this, it's a list I've compiled of Adidas schools from the Big 6 conferences.

Bruin Leaves White House

Kal Penn (a Bruin) is leaving his post at the WH to return to films. I didn't even know he had it in the first place, but nice to see a Bruin was reppin' it in DC.
