Skipping the hoops press conference today…

…so that we can have an impromptu Super Tuesday chat. I know it’s not Super Tuesday. I know it seems like an average Tuesday. But there’s a lot of stuff going on, and I’m sure you guys want to talk, so let’s do it.

How does 2 p.m. sound?


    Some of those comments by guys like Reeves Nelson and Malcolm Lee are gems.

    As long as recruiting is the focus, I’m in.

  • Jewin

    Sounds good to me. Is there any way to keep trojans out?

  • KillaKick

    Alright Jon. What would we learn from the press conference? More about how we played horrible against the trojans? If Howland gets us to .500 this year I will be impressed. Im in.

  • Hibernating

    I would love to hear about the recruiting weekend, and are we getting some recruits turning to the up and coming Bruins, versus, losing recruits…

    Sounds good to me. Is there any way to keep talk of anything trojans-related out?

    Anon 12:30pm, I doubt it. Even Neu can’t do it.

  • The People for Truth in Journalism

    I would also like trojans to be banned from the chat.

  • WTF

    Can we ban Wolf and Painter?

    I thought I sent my comment in around noon, but it didn’t post, so here it goes, again even though the chat is in process:

    Jon, you are a reporter first and a fan second. It may pain you to sit and listen through the press conference, but don’t you think Howland will discuss the upcoming games…Washington and Wasu?

  • UCLA78

    I agree with Anon @ 2:48 p.m. The press conference is more important. Coach Howland could discuss lineup changes, strategy changes, suspensions, new practice routines, or a million other things. The UCLA *beat reporter* should be there to cover it.

    Jon acts more like a fan than reporter. I agree.

  • cliq

    agreed. covering press conferences is the job. adding these other things is what may make you unique. but you can’t forget the first part.

    can someone tell me the hot news that was discussed in the chat today since i wasnt able to make it. Need the info from the greatest university ever

    I personally hate chats. Am I alone? I couldn’t even get into today’s chat because it was full, and there is no way to see what was said in a chat after it completes. Even if I had gotten in I would have had to sift through all the crap posts saying hello and all the non sequiturs. I thought the idea of a blog was that I could read and follow at my own pace and not miss information because I got locked out of a chat. I understand the idea of interaction but isn’t that why the weekly q&a were so successful under Dohn.

    The biggest news is when SUC gets the death penalty, Lame Kiffin is going to be hired to clean jock straps at UCLA.

  • Vegas Odds

    Yeah but in Neuheisel’s world the jock strap cleaner runs interference when one of the bookies he uses sends an enforcer to collect lost bets.

    Toejams have a lot of ego for having such a crappy football program, they haven’t won a national championship in over 30 years. As soon as the sanctions come, all those 2003 and 2004 as well as 2005 wins will be vacated. CHEAT ON!!!

    Can Jon Gold talk to Scott Wolf and get him to ban: spedjones, Charlie Bucket, yoda, UB, VB, Cheat Carroll, PeatStinks, Cheat On, CheatForever, CheattheSystem, Lame Kitten, silverlake-bruin, BlueBruin, Lloyd Lake, RodneyGulliory, Unemployed USC alum et al. from the Inside USC blog?

    As much as I like to see them get embarrassed when trying to take on Wolf, it eventually gets worn out and haggard. Like VB’s mom.
