Let's breakdown (and laugh) - USC v Hawaii

It pains me to admit it but I did listen to the USC v Hawaii game on the radio. I was intrigued by the train wreck. The 3-0 score after one quarter (when last year it was 20-0). Then the safety by...

Tips on tailgate, parking, traffic - first time back at Rose Bowl since '01

My brother and I will be attending our first Rose Bowl game since college. After graduation I skipped town for my career and got used to the alumni bar circuit. But, now I'm back and excited for my...

Previewing Oregon State

+

Hey Bruin fans - since Oregon State has only played one game there isn't much to go on. I'm hitting up this preseason podcast from ASU Devils Den. They spend 20 minutes breaking down the team and coaches with the local beat reporter. It's good stuff considering that last year they completely collapsed and this year played one game and dominated their heisman candidate running back. It starts at 31:54

$5 General Admission at the Rose Bowl? Can someone pass along how general admission tickets work. Are they really $5? Can you show up to the stadium and get a ticket? Is it open seating behind the goal posts? Can you move around to get better seats? Thanks!

There has been a lot of discussion about the Rice QB, Taylor McHargue (TM), and how well he played in the second half compared to the first. A lot of us were impressed by our defense in the second...

Intensity!!!

That's right, I went with three exclamation points just to show you how intense I wanted that headline to be. Now why is the football team having such a hard time with their intensity. I keep...

Financial aid per student has grown 37% (or $5,000) over the past decade

Total side note but this graphic shows the increase in financial aid since I graduated in '01. I think it's pretty spot on in terms of my own experience at UCLA with federal loans and all that. Same for you?

Taylor Mazzone new offensive GA at UCLA?

+

With all these stories about Tebow-mania hitting the UCLA campus they have been mentioning Taylor Mazzone helping out Dad. He was the Offensive GA at ASU and I know that's past tense because I found it mentioned in this Tucson Citizen article. Has anyone found anything official that says he is now officially our offensive GA?

Parking at the Coliseum?

I've never willingly been to the Trogan campus, unless you count that one college party in 1999 which was fully worth it. That was not a sober adventure.  Which means that I am stuck navigating the...

Is a QB an important player?

Do you remember the Houston game, specifically right after KP got injured? It was like the momentum went right out of the team. You could almost feel the exasperated sigh. The defense crapped out....

Another head coach on the brink, Georgia's Mark Richt: "They have enough players to be a 10-win team, but I honestly think its their lack of discipline and their vanilla offense and their inability to make in-game adjustments on both sides of the ball -- all three aspects of which point to coaching," ESPN analyst Todd McShay said --- Lessons from 2007 If Johnson's senior season can teach anything to the latest crop of Bulldogs, it's that a slow start doesn't have to ruin a season. After getting off to a poor start, captains Johnson, Thomas Brown, Fernando Velasco, Brandon Coutu and the other seniors decided that highly competitive practices would lead to a rebound. "I remember getting in dogfights almost every day because it was so competitive," Johnson said. "I'm not saying that they're not competitive in practice. But I just remember how easy it was in the ballgame for the rest of that season.

Firing the coach: can someone explain this to me?

I feel like Tom Hanks in Big....but I don't get it? How does firing CRN help our team? Is this the only option, or the best option? It seems to me that CRN is making ultra-conservative play and...
