Here is the 11th set:
Other than for “traditional reasons” why doesnt the Bruins wear diffrent bball jersey’s?Is that addidas’s call?A UCLA blackout jersey would be nice!
It is UCLA’s call, and if I remember correctly, loads of folks didn’t like when Steve Lavin did it. Also, I’m sure UCLA will do it again right after North Carolina, Duke and Kentucky go that way.
Mark Whicker (Orange County Register) hints that Drew Gordon might transfer. Have you heard this rumor yourself, and can you comment on it?
I haven’t read that, nor heard it. And, again, I don’t deal in rumors, I deal in fact.
Do you see any of the 3 BBall seniors starting next year?
Yup. I see Dragovic at power forward.
Will Gordon and Bobo go home for summer or stay at UCLA?
I don’t know, but if I had to guess right now, I’d say stay at UCLA. It is understood that is the preferred thing to do.
Brian, Did you know that 10% of the population is apparently unable to understand sarcasm?
Except after a fan’s team just lost a game, and then 95 percent don’t understand sarcasm.
What do you think of Drew Gordon as a team leader next year? I think his attitude is an embarrassment to UCLA.
I think he is immature in some of things he does and says, but he always plays hard, and in my book, that is a tremendous asset. That he said, or felt the need to say, certain things this season only illustrates what UCLA’s leadership was really like.
we dont practice zone. we dont practice a full court press. yet howland is supposed to be a coach who pays attention to every detail. am i missing something? what exactly do we practice?
I think you are onto something, but I will say in my time covering Connecticut, I don’t remember them practicing a zone defense, and Jim Calhoun has won two national titles. That said, this was a flawed UCLA team, and you would think they would have at least practiced a press. And as for what they do in practice, I have no idea. Practices are closed.
lavin mentioned something like west-coast teams in the tournament that play at the early 10am time-slot have a very low winning percentage and provided a stat, or something. doesnt that give east-coast teams an unfair advantage? what do u think? what can be done?
I believe that is a load of garbage. UCLA had no trouble crushing Notre Dame with a 10 a.m. start this season, and by the time UCLA played Villanova, the Bruins were in Philly for four days. Plus, UCLA’s chancellor is an expert on time change and biorhythms, and I was told by the staff UCLA was fully acclimated to the time change by the time the game was played.
How seriously is UCLA recruiting Marve? Would he even be eligible to play next season? Are there any concerns about his attitude or the manner in which he left Miami?
I don’t think UCLA is much of a player in the Marve sweepstakes, and by the way, it is UCLA’s decision.
