Cal State President pay capped at 50% of Dan Guerrero's

3

It seems that running an entire California State University Campus is worth a maximum of $325K, while Dan Guerrero makes more than double that for spending the past decade destroying the UCLA athletics department. No wonder this state is bankrupt. Paying frauds like Guerrero huge amounts to be incompetent, and setting arbitrary caps on pay regardless of performance.

Coaches Hot Seat gets it

7

a small sample (and ignore the politics): The problem at UCLA is who is hiring the football coaches which would be UCLA AD Dan Guerrero. 1. When Karl Dorrell was hired in December 2002 he was the wide receivers coach with the Denver Broncos and had never been a head coach before. 2. When Rick Neuheisel was hiring December 2007 he was the QB coach for the Baltimore Ravens and had been run out of Washington for a lot of reasons with the best one in our minds being that Neuheisel was a Pompous Arrogant Ass when he was the head coach at Colorado and Washington and REALLY did believe he was God’s gift to Planet Earth. (We will say that the Rick Neuheisel that coached at UCLA the last 4 years was much humbler man…more of a human being and acted perfectly every time we were around him at UCLA.…but a worse coach which say something but we are not quite sure what since we can name dozens of big time winning college coaches that were decent human beings during their entire lives…like former UCLA head coach Terry Donahue). Getting back to the REAL problem at UCLA which is not facilities or even lack of money….although better facilities and more money would be great….the REAL problem at UCLA is Dan Guerrero who he is hiring as head football coaches of the UCLA Bruins.

O'Malley: McCourts Must Sell Dodgers for good of team and city

1

Peter O'Malley says Frank McCourt needs to sell the Dodgers O'Malley, whose family owned the team for 47 years, says the current ownership has 'lost all credibility throughout the city.' O'Malley says local investors are needed to restore the team's luster.

"Ben doesn’t need help coaching," said Mathews. "My main focus is to get the best players available for him to coach..."

7

Contrary to common perception, 59 year old Phil Matthews has been hired not to provide any coaching assistance to Ben Howland, but to be the chief recruiter. Can a 59 year old who has been a Nebraska assistant the past 4 years be counted on to bring in the top level talent UCLA needs? Prior to Nebraska, he spent 10 years as head coach of the Universtiy of San Francisco, I am not aware of a significant recruit he brought into either program in those 14 years. Either Ben is crazy like a fox, or this move is really, really strange.

Great Meet for the Bruins. I was there. Don't know much about Gymnastics, but there were over five thousand out for the meet. The crowd was very energized. The alumni band was there, and played very loud. They were great. Was really impressed by the level of artistry UCLA had over Utah. Utah was very still, compared to the fluidity and joy of UCLA's performance. Coach John R Wooden was there for a short time. Was great to see him, but he is clearly in declining health and could only stay a short time. Keep him in your prayers. next meet in January 31. I suggest you check it out if you haven't been to one. They are great fun.

Pete Carroll screws over another (former) player

10

Player calls pete for coaching opportunity, Pete says he will call him in two weeks, but never calls back. USC football: Kenechi Udeze says 'Purple is the color of loyalty' Udeze, who retired from the NFL after a bout with leukemia, joined Washington's program as an assistant strength and conditioning coach, a position made available to him by Husky Coach Steve Sarkisian. "Purple is the color of loyalty," Udeze said before the game. That statement came as a bit of a shock from a player who starred for USC and helped lead the Trojans to the Associated Press national title in 2003. But Udeze said he contacted Trojans Coach Pete Carroll in July with interest in finding a position in USC’s program. "He said ‘Give me two weeks,’" Udeze said. "I still haven’t heard from him.

The Pauley Problem & How To Solve It

A blogger on Bruins Nation offer up an interesting idea to work around the current ideas to renovate UCLA's legendary Pauley Pavilion.

Another Pete Carroll recruiting violation

1

the times documents PC picking up another player in a limousine (remembe their denial of doing so with Price?) "Right now it's SC," said Boyd, who has also visited Oregon State. "Washington has to come with a miracle." USC picked up Boyd in a limousine during his visit and put him and other recruits up in the downtown L.A. Marriott. "He had the five-star treatment," Jordan Coach Elijah Asante said. The relevent NCAA regulation Pete broke: 13.5.2.1 General Restrictions. A member institution may pay the prospective student-athlete's actual round-trip transportation costs for his or her official visit to its campus from any location, provided the prospective student-athlete returns to the original point of departure, or if return transportation is provided to the prospective student-athlete's home, educational institution or site of competition, the cost does not exceed round-trip expenses from the prospective student-athlete's original point of departure. Use of a limousine or helicopter for such transportation is prohibited. (Revised: 1/9/06, 5/26/06)

Great article on how corrupt SUC is, this time focusing on Timmeh's involvement with yet another tainted player: Demar DeRozen. Demar seems like a good kid in a bad situation, but clearly Timmeh!'s actions did nothing but contribute to the drama in his life.
