Inside UCLA Podcast (lucky) 13: Jon Gold and Vincent Bonsignore on UCLA basketball, football, the Lakers and Tiger Woods

In today’s podcast, Daily News staff writers Jon Gold and Vinnie Bonsignore talk about what’s on their collective minds not just about UCLA football and basketball — which they do discuss in detail, but they also agree to disagree on the Los Angeles Lakers’ chances in the NBA Playoffs, and they talk about the train wreck that is Tiger Woods’ personal life and reputation.

For the record, Jon thinks the Lakers will repeat as NBA champions, while Vinnie doesn’t think they’ll make it past the first round of the playoffs.
