Over the wall no more?

I talked to a few folks inside UCLA’s football program, and I was told there is a very slim chance the Bruins will stage the infamous “Over the wall” day during spring practice.

    Sources have confirmed that Coach Neu has installed a “Fido Shock” wire along the top of the wall just to cover his bases.

    Wow so if the do go over the wall Rick will look like a fool!

  • heyeug

    I’d say the players would look like fools if they go over the wall. Dumb, dumb “tradition”.

  • Sleepy LaBeef

    Maintain tradition without wasting a valuable spring practice day? Easy. Neu makes a deal with the players, where they go over the wall…and go right back in to practice. Or, go over the wall…at the end of practice, or with maybe 5 minutes to go. Good way to find out who the team leaders are.

    heyeug is right; it really is a dumb tradition. Are dumb traditions worth keeping?

    Neuheisel says it’s 5-2 against the fat behinds purge ever happening again on his watch. Any running off the field with tails between legs will now officially only happen during the regular season.

    So you’re saying there is a chance!

  • cliq

    incorporate the “wall” as part of drills.. maybe something fun or challenging… then you get to keep tradition and improve your game!

  • Sleepy LaBeef

    hey Rick Neuheisel’s Financial Planner / Bookie-

    now you can go back to celebrating your 22-13/7th place Pac-10 season.

    So you’re saying that someone told them that winners that play with heart stand on the other side of the wall?

    If Logan is a leader as the prior blog entry indicates, I’d like to see him take the first guy who tries any lame stuff like this and beat him senseless.

    I’m tired our pansy team. The soft image. The lack of drive. I’d like to see some fire that doesn’t result in a 15 yard penalty. No more of this. It’s old and stupid. It’s one thing when the team has had some success in back to back years but coming off a 4-8 season and it’s embarrassing. It embarrasses everyone who is associated with the program right down to us fans who can’t help but love the team.

    Please, no more.

    Brian, so they will do it just maybe not during spring practice?

    Those who’ve seen the Over The Wall Gang say they’ve never seen UCLA’s bunch of fatties move so quickly except for when there was a table full of free cheese burgers and donuts at the end of one practice. Rumor has it the infamous UCLA Towel Waver was almost killed during that bull stampede for the free grub, and the burping and farting afterward was classic, reminiscent of Blazing Saddles. Maybe they should recruit some of those UCLA fatties for the basketball team – they could teach those pansies how to elbow and play defense so they won’t get crushed in the Pac-10 Tournament and then again in the second round of the NCAA Tournament by a better-prepared and more talented Villanova team.

    hey bookie

    go back to the sc page

  • Rick Neuheisel’s Financial Planner / Bookie

    I would, but Neuheisel and a bunch of UCLA football players owe me money.

  • bruin78

    Hey Bookie,

    Maybe you should go looking for money from Rodney Guillroy or New Era? I heard they take care of trOJan “financial issues”…cough,cough.

    “they could teach those pansies how to elbow and play defense so they won’t get crushed in the Pac-10 Tournament and then again in the second round of the NCAA Tournament by a better-prepared and more talented Villanova team.”

    Says the guy who hasn’t beat UCLA in the regular season for two years, with a coach who can’t sniff Howland’s jock.

    Enjoy your recent run of “success” (if that’s what you call a 9-9 regular Pac10 season). It will end in sanctions soon enough.

  • Rick Neuheisel’s Financial Planner / Bookie

    My Villanova boys could beat you guys in checkers, chess or anything you want … bring it on!

  • bruin78

    Bookie,

    Did Villanova replace their football team with a checkers team?

  • Rick Neuheisel’s Financial Planner / Bookie

    Yes they did, and then that checkers team was replaced by a basketball team that went out and crushed UCLA by 20 points in the NCAA’s!

    Now on to the Final Four!

  • J Doe

    On to the final four?? Don’t you have to make it to the round of 8 first?? We’ll see if you are still talking tomorrow.

  • Rick Neuheisel’s Financial Planner / Bookie

    Hi J Doe, looks like we have to see if you are still talking tomorrow. On to the Final Four! How sweet it is!

  • bruin78

    Bookie,

    “Yes they did, and then that checkers team was replaced by a basketball team that went out and crushed UCLA by 20 points in the NCAA’s!”

    You must be a bandwagoning Nova fan because if you knew your history, you’d know that Coach Wooden and Company smashed you in the finals for a fifth consecutive National Championship in 1971.

    Also, how many final fours have you even played? How many national titles…one? Get off our board with with your nonsense. You’ve got nothing on UCLA and never will.

  • 89-69 Villanova

    Always good for UCLA bandwagon fans to bring up ancient history. Quit living in the past! I think Coach Wooden retired from coaching at least a couple of seasons ago now, right? Nova just beat Duke – live with it!

  • Locoweed

    You have to take you hat off to ‘Nova. They’re a heck of a team!

  • bruin78

    Always nice of bandwagoning Nova fans to start trolling our boards after they finally get a big win.

    Nova looks great. They have a good chance. I’m not disrespecting their season…only their cowardly bandwagoning fans that decided to troll our boards AFTER they won and try to talk smack about our program.

    Nova won…we get it. Don’t trash our program because you gotta good win. It’s about time.
