UCLA Hoops: Exhibitionists Of Big Time Basketball

Steve Alford brings his lies to UCLA

Steve Alford is the new coach of the UCLA men’s basketball team. This isn’t news to most of you. It happened several days ago, without much naysaying or fanfare. It just kind of happened. The national media didn’t seem to have much of a reaction, which baffles me. This puzzles me because Steve Alford is not a good person. Sure, you could say that about a lot of coaches that...

What’s Wrong With UCLA?

Following another disappointing season, UCLA was supposed to be back.  They were returning all of the important players off of last year’s team, and they welcomed the number two overall recruiting class headlined by Rivals number one recruit Shabazz Muhammad.

How good will UCLA be? Circle December 8th on your calendar

In 2009 six of ten Pac-10 schools made the NCAA Tournament. In the three years since only eight schools have made the dance, and last year the top seed (Colorado) was an 11. UCLA, for their part, hasn't been a 1-seed since 2008. And the Pac-12 (or Pac-10) - right or wrong - goes as UCLA goes. In the ACC if Duke or UNC are down then the conference is perceived as being down...
