Bob Cantu Reaction To UCLA Victory

“This is just a huge win, it’s UCLA,” Cantu said. “We were never going to hang our heads in the overtime. The guys hung in there. This was about the team and keeping our poise.”

    I love new Pauley! Makes me all TINGLY!!! So, it’s been how many years since UCLA’s last hoops title? 20 years? and none before that since the 70s? HAWR HAWR!!!

    This proves once again that bRUIN basketball is nothing, I mean N-O-T-H-I-N-G outside those years under Wooden, UNLIKE USC football, which has excelled for decades with many different coaches and systems. In other words, the bRUIN winning in basketball was a mere fluke because of one good coach, whereas the football tradition of USC is REAL. ‘Nuff said!!!

    • Spedjones

      Disagree. Howland’s 3 straight final fours is crazy good. NC in late 90s is pretty good too. Doesn’t mean sh*t today, just like Pete’s success in 2003 doesn’t do anything to make 7-6 and 1 to UN any better.

        He got outcoached, straight up, two years in a row, against the same team. UCLA has 1 NC outside of wooden.

        • Spedjones

          no doubt about Howland, but you can’t say 3 final 4s, including 1 final, was anything less than a great run.

          • http://4chan.org/ m00t

            In that same vein, you can’t say a 10 year run, with one out of conference loss is anything but a great run.

          • Spedjones

            nor would I. Or have I. Past is past though, for both programs.

          • http://4chan.org/ m00t

            The past is important. Wooden is the reason UCLA has the reputation it has today, and why they got those guys (Love, Westbrook, etc) to make those runs. If the past was entirely irrelevant, San Jose State would be out-recruiting both of us.

      Cantu said it best…”This is just a huge win, it’s UCLA”…..ANYTIME you get a RARE VICTORY against UCLA it’s a HUGE WIN…I get it.
      Around UCLA, beating USC is just another win…..that’s the difference.
      fit on torgan!

      • realtrojan

        LOL!!! I wouldn’t beat myself off that much if I were you, because the novelty of beating fUCLA will get much thinner from now on. Yep, that’s right. You’re truly “RUINED” now!!! LMAO!!!

    What’s funny about these posts is that you’re correct. What’s different about these posts is that bruins, at least this one, don’t disagree. No denial, no pretending our history makes us good today. If Trogies were as honest about their football program this board wouldn’t generate the fuss it does. What’s different about UCLA is that they’re going to fire their suck@ss coach at the the end of the season, if not sooner, whereas SUC is holding on to Lane like he actually has a clue.

      Spedjones, I am not a USC or UCLA fan. But the UCLA basketball team is better than the USC basketball team. Just because USC beat them one time does not mean that they are the better team. I would bet that if they would play another game, the UCLA team would beat them in basketball. Likewise,the USC football team is superior to the UCLA football. I repeat one win against a good team can be a fluke. If a team beats another team on a consisting bases then someone can say that their team is better than the other. For example, Stanford has beat USC more than 2 times, so they can say that they have a better team.

      • Spedjones

        I’ve never claimed that UCLA’s a better football program, historically, than SC. There’s no question SC’s done more. But 38-28, a better record this year and a better direction overall does in fact make UCLA the better football program today. SC’s in shambles and anyone who doesn’t see it is blind. I’m not afraid to say that UCLA basketball under Howland is a joke. He must be fired. I’m not blind to that.
