    Im not sure why Miguel was just cut and there was no attempt at a seamless transition whereby you actually had ANY information on anything related to UCLA… This is weak sauce. Basketball is about to start and the Bruins are one of the top stories in the country because of Shabazz and Anderson, not one thing on that. The football team is off to one of their best starts in over a decade, no coverage on the football team. What exactly is the daily news covering?
