Answers, Part XIV

Here is the 14th set:

Is it possible that EJ Woods will receive probation similar to that of Dragovic, or is Dragovic domestic abuse case considered less severe?
I don’t mean to single you out, so I apologize if it comes across that way, but this is the last time I will answer a question about Dragovic. HE IS NOT ON PROBATION. HE NEVER WAS BECAUSE CHARGES WERE NEVER FILED. THEREFORE, HE IS GUILTY OF NOTHING.
Now, I hope that puts an end to it. Woods had charges filed against him, so we shall see how this all plays out.

I know they upgraded the Rose Bowl locker rooms and other facilities lately, have you heard of of any discussion of lowering the field to make the seats behind the bench usable?
I have not heard of that. It would be an interesting thing to do, and would make sense if UCLA was already selling every seat in the house. However, that is not the case, so I don’t think there are any plans to lower the field, which, I believe, Ohio State did a few years back. But I like the question.

Have you heard of UCLA as a possible destination for Stephen Curry’s brother who is transferring from Liberty?
I have not heard that. I will check. Would it be as a walk-on, or a scholarship kid?

Scout.com shows two 2010 recruits, Kenneth Scott WR Colony HS and Demetrius Wright DB Corona HS, as favoring UCLA even though other schools have made offers and UCLA has not. Any knowledge of CRN interest in either of them?
I know UCLA is interested in those players. Before UCLA offers, usually they like to have some transcripts in hand and knowledge of the person’s academic history. Plus, UCLA is taking a different tact in recruiting, and that is waiting to offer kids until they really have had a great chance to sccout them.

Wouldn’t you think that after all the hours CBH spends reviewing tape of opposing team offenses that he would be a more effective coach on the offensive side of the ball?
In talking to folks, I get the sense when Howland watches tape, a lot of times he is watching the defense.

Were you happy w/ how the in-game basketball chats progressed or did you tune out like I did when the same folks routinely used it as a personal chatting venue?
I love chatting with a bunch off the regulars. It was a lot of fun. I just didn’t like the whining that went on during the Villanova game. And as far as a personal chat venue, sometimes it can seem like that because it is hard to sustain two hours of hoops chat, especially during bad games. I like to get to know people, and about them, so I find that stuff enjoyable.

Is it common in other Pac 10 venues for the band to play the same tired songs at every home basketball game? How good/lousy is the UCLA band in your opinion?
Not only do they play the same tired songs, but nearly every band plays the same set of songs, outside of their own fight song. I find UCLA to be in the middle of the Pac-10 band brigade. I know I will take some guff for this (especially if a certain lawyer friend is reading), but I think Cal’s band is the best in the Pac-10.
