Malcolm Bunche’s UCLA career ends early due to academic issues

UCLA offensive lineman Malcolm Bunche did not travel to San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl due to an academic issue, effectively ending the graduate transfer’s career with the Bruins.

The 6-foot-6, 310-pound lineman transferred from Miami and earned a starting spot to open his lone season in Los Angeles, but was moved from left tackle in favor of Conor McDermott after six games. He started three games at left guard, then was benched entirely when sophomore Alex Redmond returned from a sprained ankle.

    Auuuuwwwwooooo!!!! Another ucla dummy! Malcolm Bunche of Rocks For Brains and I Wannah Bail On My Education are proving that ucla athletes are dummies. Wang, I love you like Wolfbag loves WeHo, because you point out all of the dummies at ucla. Auuuwwwoooooo!!!!

      Hey, moron, these stories actually show that UCLA maintains high academic standards and actually enforces them on it’s student athletes. U$C, on the other hand, has no such standards and in fact welcomes idiotic non-students into its ranks. That’s what makes it more like a junior college than a university.

        WELL SAID.

        GO BRUINS !!!

        Yep. USC has low academic standards. All they want is your money. USC allows dummies to play, UCLA doesn’t.

      Why does the moderator allow a name like that? He’s an embarrassment to us SC fans.

    Someone get rid of that comment. Just plain offensive.

    With so much money flowing in with the Pac-12 network deal there should be renewed emphasis on providing academic support to our athletes. Not just at UCLA but at all of our universities.

    I am saddened by this story, but this may be Karma and pay back to UCLA Alumni who condemn the school across town, and can’t seem to keep their own house in order.
