In less than 100 days, UCLA will begin its most anticipated football season in awhile. For the first time in what seems like awhile, multiple players on this UCLA team have been tabbed as preseason All-Americans—in Brett Hundley, Anthony Barr and Xavier Su'a-Filo—while the squad possesses two bona fide Heisman candidates in Barr and Hundley.

Shabazz Muhammad, Prima Donna, Wasn’t Even UCLA’s Best Player In 2013

Perhaps the highest-profile player in the past half-decade at UCLA has also been the most polarizing for casual fans of college hoops and college basketball analysts alike. From the get-go, Muhammad was put under a microscope, his every action scrutinized—on the court and off of it.  This is expected. Muhammad was billed as a transcendent […]

UCLA Football: Defense Will Survive Without Odighizuwa

If you've missed the news, UCLA defensive lineman Owamagbe Odighizuwa — or "Owa" to the casual UCLA fan — has been ruled out for the 2013-14 football season due to hip surgery. Obviously, this is a huge blow to a UCLA defense that's going to be, for the most part, young and raw, a team […]

UCLA Football: On Jim Mora and the Sophomore Slump

On April 27, fans will get to take another offseason look at the second year under UCLA head coach Jim Mora.

UCLA Football: Adrian Klemm Isn’t Very Pleased With His Offensive Line

Perhaps one of UCLA's biggest areas of weakness last year was the offensive line. Indeed, the Bruins' offensive line finished in the bottom-10 in sacks allowed, letting their QB get hammered 3.5 times per game. (And if you want to attribute that to UCLA just playing a more uptempo game, note that Hundley was sacked […]

Jim Mora, UCLA Athletics Welcome Gay Athletes, Coaches And So Should Everyone Else

With the topic of gay marriage and gay rights resurfacing recently — especially in the context of football, thanks to the efforts of NFL Bruins Chris Kluwe and Brendon Ayanbadejo — UCLA athletics took the correct stance on the issue.

UCLA Football: A Look At Pitt RB Rushel Shell, Who May Transfer To UCLA

If you didn't know, UCLA football is currently thin as hell at running back, thanks to the departure of perhaps the greatest ball-carrier in UCLA history in Johnathan Franklin. Franklin leaves behind a running back corps filled with talent but riddled by inexperience. And while that won't get alleviated immediately, it's not as if the […]

UCLA Should Retire Jackie Robinson’s No. 42 Across All Men’s Sports

The number 42. It's an iconic number, one that's revered by many and hated by none. No professional baseball player is allowed to wear it, and it's also a freaking movie. All this caused by Jackie Robinson, the man who changed baseball forever. Indeed, every Major League Baseball team retired Robinson's number for his contributions […]

UCLA Football: Jim Mora Thinks Anthony Barr Deserves Heisman Hype, But Does He?

If you're one of those jackwagons that reads titles and opening sentences before reading the entire post, then let me answer the question posed in said title for your low-attention-span butt: Yes, of course UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr deserves preseason Heisman consideration.

Steve Alford Issues Statement Regarding Rape Case At Iowa, Which Helps His Cause At UCLA

One of the biggest criticisms of the hiring of UCLA basketball coach Steve Alford was that he once defended a tried-and-true rapist during his time at Iowa. Iowa fans still hate him to this day, and the history that resurfaced has troubled UCLA fans everywhere. To add on to that, Alford seemed anything but regretful, […]

Rysheed Jordan ‘Expected’ To Spurn UCLA, Choose St. John’s For Whatever Reason

Highly-touted basketball recruit and oddly-named point guard Rysheed Jordan is "expected to choose St. John's" over UCLA and Temple on Thursday, according to Adam Zagoria. Of course, Zagoria's been wrong before and some would argue he's wrong more often than he's right. However, his "sources" are those close to St. John's, and if you keep […]

Rysheed Jordan Paramount to 2013 UCLA Basketball Recruiting Class

The 2012-13 NCAA men's basketball season is over. It ended when Louisville took home their own trophy on Monday night, which is just their third in program history. (Big deal – UCLA has 11; call us when you reach the halfway point, Rick Pitino.) With that, though, comes the scrambling associated with basketball recruiting. For […]
