Here is the fifth set:
Brian, do you feel Oregon has a recruiting advantage because the school is so closely tied to Nike? Is UCLA still considering a switch to Nike gear?
I do not feel Oregon has the edge because of the tie to Nike, but rather of the tie to Phil Knight, who is pumping tons of money into the program. And, yes, UCLA is still considering a switch, but don’t expect news for another 10 or 11 months.
Do you think you could track down RN and ask him about improvements to our away uniforms in football. Please tell him, UCLA fans are tired of plain white, we need a little zest on the field for our away games.
Are you speaking for all UCLA fans? I’m sure one day the uniform issue will come up, but it is not high on priority list when it comes to speaking with Neuheisel.
If you were aware of a persistent pervasive pattern of recruiting violations or questionable recruiting practices at UCLA would you report it?
Yup. That is my job, to report the good and the bad. I don’t sit back and protect a program that is cheating.
What, in your opinion, happened to the baseball team? We seem to have great recruiting classes each year.
Got me. Is the season over? Actually, I checked and was told UCLA’s situational hitting was sub-par and the Bruins were awful in one-run games.
Given that Holiday will most likely be drafted higher than Collison do you feel that Howland should have started Holiday over Collison at the point?
Not at all because Collison could not play the two-guard. So, if Holiday played the point, where was Collison going to play? And since Collison cannot play the two-guard, he was going to turn into a 10-minute a night backup?
Brian, you have commented in the past how difficult howland can be with the media. Wouldn’t someone with a better personality like a bruce pearl be a better ambassador for ucla basketball and thus improve ucla’s chances at raising the money needed to renovate pauley?
Two things: Howland is not always difficult to deal with, but sometimes can be, and Howland is great with the boosters, and has done a lot of work to help raise money.
Is one day enough to find your QB of the future; I like what UCLA is doing camping some gunslingers to see if they fit their system?
I don’t think it is a one-day venture. UCLA has done loads of homework on the quarterbacks and saw each one in person, but will not make a decision until after the one-day camp.
how many shades of blue does UCLA have???? it seems like we have 16 different blues!
