Ted Miller of ESPN’s Pac-10 Blog just completely nails it on the head with his take of UCLA this spring: Check it out
Miller talks about UCLA’s biggest need as changing the culture and confidence of the program from within, particularly off a rough year and rougher off-season. The feelings early on both Joe Tresey and Mike Johnson, from both players and fans, are that both have ramped up the expectations in terms of both performance and attitude. Whether the players buy into that remains to be seen. But Miller is absolutely correct in that being the biggest challenge for UCLA, which returns 18 starters from a 4-8 team.
