Embree looking good

One of my sources said it is looking very good for former UCLA and NFL assistant Jon Embree joining the Bruins staff as a graduate assistant. Embree still must be admitted to graduate school, but it looks like it is going to happen.
Embree, who was the tight ends coach with the Kansas City Chiefs, will continue to get paid by the Chiefs, which is one of the reasons he can coach at UCLA without getting paid.
His son, Taylor, will be a sophomore receiver for the Bruins in 2009.

Campin’ with J-Dub

I was down at Los Angeles Southwest College today for former Bruin great James Washington’s free football camp for area youth, and it was a great event.
UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel brought his whole staff to do volunteer work with the approximate 500 campers, and a bunch of current UCLA players were there doing volunteer work for the camp.
Current players there were Brian Price, Chinonso Anyanwu, Reggie Cater, Datone Jones, Johnathan Franklin, Rahim Moore and Aaron Hester, and youth football teams from across the Southland were represented at the camp.

Pauley poll

Since there is so much talk about the Pauley Pavilion project, I thought I would post a poll to get a consensus of what folks think.

Do you like what you have heard regarding the renovation of Pauley Pavilion?
No, $185 million should go further
Hard to tell until I see the finished product in person
Yes, it looks awesome
