It's not that we lost, it is how we lost. Absolutely disgusting and embarrassing to not score like that - on national TV to boot. CBH needs to emphasize OFFENSE.

It isn't so much that they lost, it's the way that they lost ( as "JaxBruin" said ). UCLA is not the same team they were last year...after all they lost 3 top-notch players to the NBA !! They are a young team and hopefully, they'll learn from this loss.

Excellent! We're going to another Final Four!

Collison will find a way to get it done.

Go Bruins!

First, UCLA won by only one point over USC which tells me the gap is just about closed on these two basketball programs.

Second, I am shocked to read people call Ben Howland overrated. You must be kidding me. He just finished back to back final four appearances and he lost lots of talent to last years draft. Even Duke has off an off year now and then.

Third, UCLA should be scoring more. Defense only goes so far.

UCLA won by 4 points but whos conting? Yes USC has done very well in recruiting and I'm glad they have, the basketball rilvary has not been the same for about 30 years, since the days of
Gus Williams, and befor Paul Westhphal at USC.

I would hope that one day the rilvary between the two schools would be like Dukd and NC. Unlike the hatred usc fans have for UCLA football, I actually would love for usc basketball to keep getting better, because I know that UCLA basketball will always be strong and there's enought good local talent to go around for both schools.

Unlike football , you usually have no more than 5 schlarships to give out for basketball, so better they go to usc than some big-east school or an acc school.

Mike, we've already been thru this before, about the rankings of the universities, and UCLA's ranking as superior according to independent studies from MSNBC and others. USC is private, so they have to charge more, UCLA is a California university so I'm sure the state funds a pretty good portion, that's whay it's cheaper to go there, even though the university ranks higher than usc, hence the tougher academic standards for admission at UCLA than usc.

UCLA = early 90s Buffalo Bills
U$C = Detroit Lions 2008
Go amuse yourself playing NCAA football on XBox & we'll call for you in September when $C is relevant for something again.

I wonder how many of you all have ever coached
any team in any sport? The other team wants to win too fools. Men's Basketball is totally unwatchable.
They carry the ball over and travel so much is sickens me. It is hood ball thats all. Where did UCLA get those players anyways? the Sudan?
Kevin Love was Smart and did his 1 year and left.
If college ball and babes where that great he would have stayed. I dig the UCLA vibe and the people, but please Rob and the rest, do not get so full of yourselves. Harrick was the last one to win it all. Its been a while. UCLA will not win it this year!
Too Small and too foreign! ahhhhhhhhh peace
