Before I get to the first set of answers, just wanted to let everyone know I will open a chat room for the football game against Oregon State. It will open at 2:45 p.m.
I’m not sure how many sets of answers yet, but there will be a lot. So, onto the first group:
Pass me the bong
what the hell are they doing?
Time for a message?

Scout team for the boys
How did Norm Chow’s trip to Hawaii go? How did the commits (Toma, Hilliard, Hasiak) perform and did he meet with Manti Te’o?
From my understanding the trip was fine, and it really doesn’t matter how they performed. It won’t change UCLA’s minds on them. As for meeting with the players, if he did, it would be an NCAA violation. It is an evaluation period.
Do you have a program that releases your updates? Seem to come out right on the hour or 15 minute intervals.
I can’t give away my secrets.
Are you glad the media is blocked out from basketball? Would you be required to attend most or all of them if it weren’t?
No, I’m not glad. I would like to see how these guys improve, what coach Ben Howland does during practice to teach his defense and how much time is spent on the fastbreak, and also feeding the post.
Can you provide your grade on the exhibition basketball game?
No, since I was not there.
With Honeycutt in the fold, why are we going for Moser? Dont they play the same positions?
Because Moser is supposed to be really, really good, and why not get as may top-notch players? Isn’t that the goal?
Why the 4 de-commits from Rutgers?
Because players made decisions they were not comfortable with, and in some instances rushed into the decisions. I have no problems with it. All will not be rosy all the time.
After actually watching the basketball team play, do you think we are a better or a worse team than originally thought? why?
I did not watch them play, but I also know I would not make a judgment after watching an exhibition game against an NAIA school.
Do you think Neuheisel will let Olson get any snaps in a game when he is healthy? Or is he sticking to Craft pretty much no matter what?
I’m curious about that. I don’t know at this point, but my feeling is that Olson could get some snaps against Arizona State if UCLA’s offense continues to perform poorly leading up to the game.
