Here is the third and final set of the mid-week special set of questions and answers:
I didn’t understand Kevin Love’s joke, after the Stanford game, about returning next year (“after a game like that…noooo.” etc). Can you explain what he meant, and was he hinting that he will, or will not, return?
I wasnt there for it. Jill Painter wrote about it. All I can say is what Ive said for the last month or so, and that is everyone I talk to says he will not be back next season, unless something changes.
Who is Jill Painter and why was she blogging on your blog on game day? Not that she was bad, just curious.
Jill helps out on the UCLA beat when there are lots of things going on, and during times when UCLA is not playing, she gives me a chance to take a day off here or there.
If the 8 schools at the Honda Center get 350 tickets apiece, thats 2800 ticket . How many does the Honda Center seat for basketball? About 17,000? So who gets the remaining 14,000 tickets for the NCAA first and second round games?
Corporations and sponsors get a bundle, players and families get some and some went on sale a while ago to the general public, but those are usually snatched up long before people are aware, or care, about who is playing in which region. In short, its a really, really bad way to do things, and the general public always gets the short end of the stick.
Who was the last UCLA player to win 100 games in their Carreer besides Lorenzo Mata? and Where does he rank all time in wins?
I will check with UCLA to see if they have records of it. It is nothing something I can just look up because I dont know about guys that played parts of a season because of red-shirting, so I will check it out.
