BH coached under a lot of pressure, and it showed! he was unable to prepare his team for games he should have won, like losing to WSU on the last weekend of the season when UCLA NEEDED TO WIN....and the meltdown vs. Oregon in the Pac-12 tournament Title game....and the horrific showing in the first round of the tournament....and perhaps the most horrible loss ever in UCLA history to Cal Poly...and that loss to USC at Pauley...those losses became the reason why Ben Howland's head was called for. Ben got away from his traditional recruiting style of getting players who would commit for 4 years, largely in part IMHO is because after the 3 straight Final-fours UCLA again became a school for hot recruits a.k.a. one-and-dones...that is why BH is not here today.
Ya I agree, the reason Ben is gone is because we the fans and the alumni and the boosters are the most delusional in all sports not just college. You don't see the Celtics suiting up ol Bill Russell, yet our Bruins are acting like if had won as consistently without Howland as we did with him... We Bruins should all be ashamed and beg Howland to come back, he would be the best coach we can get right now.... Can Mora coach BB as well? Someone coach my Bruins!!!! Go Bruins!

Stealing my lines. I've said that about you several time, you pathetic loser. Thank goodness for REAL Bruins, you have no true affiliation with the school.
Yahhhh, and the only affliation with USC is you go near the school to score you crack, fool. No USC alum would ever be as ignorant as you posting on here as a liar, hypocrite, racist, bigot, homophobic, woman hater, cop hater, and on and on and on...most USC alums that I know would not spew the ignorant crap you do on a public forum...some may feel like you do, but are smart enough to keep it to themselves, and NOT embarrass the institution you so "claim" to have attended...B U L L S H I T E R!!!

Blah, blah, blah. Same old bullshit. Don't be upset because I actually graduated from the school I admire and you couldn't graduate from either.

Thats a fair assessment, but it still leaves your once-glorious program in a bind. They are in between a rock and a hard place on who and how to recruit. I guess EVERY school could say they would like a perfect blend of the one-and-dones (yes prima donnas) along with competent, role players who will ride out 3 or 4 years. Like we Trojan fans are in football, I just dont see UCLA basketball fans having the patience. Although, maybe the younger generation will be more lenient since they were in diapers the last time a (B)ruin team was relevant and do not know any difference... HaHa

B U L L S H I T no USC grad would ever act the way you do on a public forum. Sports trash-talk okay, I get it...showing racism, bigotry, hate for LOE, hatred for women? nahhhh, no USC grad would EVER post that crap on here - even if you REALLY felt that way, you would just keep it to yourself...I know I talk a lot of crap about USC, but the reality is, every USC grad I know has class, you? you're a pucking loser, there is NO EFFING way you went to USC... NO PUCKING WAY!

Ya I agree, just read where Brad Stevens WONT be coming to my beloved Pauley Pavillion to coach my Bruins. Another one says NO.First Shaka Zulu now Brad Stevens, who's next to turn down the greatest job in College basketball. Pitino, Donovan, both will say no...How about Ben Howland, he's available, he just won a conference title, has three final four appearances, and the best first 10 year record in Bruin history.....Jerry Tarkanian?

Ya I agree we won't have ol Ben Howland to kick around any longer, looks like he will be sticking it to us as USC's head coach. No one wants to coach my Bruins now we hand over to our rivals the best coach we have ever had. Does anyone want to coach my Bruins???? Go Bruins!

Former Tennessee Volunteers head coach Bruce Pearl . There have been rumors lately that Pearl was to be interviewed by the UCLA Bruins who recently fired head coach Ben Howland. Those rumors were dispelled as he blasted the entire UCLA basketball program on ESPN radio.
“If they had fans, if they actually had people that would fill up Pauley Pavilion and fight the traffic in Westwood and care about their basketball team,” Pearl stated when asked about the school with the most delusional fan base.“They are talking about the fact that their coaches can’t live up to John Wooden. The fan base at UCLA can’t live up to the fan base that John Wooden had. They’re watching the Lakers and watching the Clippers. To think that they’re going to bring in a better coach right now is unrealistic. They just won the Pac-12; they had the No. 2 recruiting class; they think they’re going to go Final Fours in a row every year? I think that’s delusional. I don’t think that’s realistic.”
Pearl also continued on to say that UCLA was crazy for believing that they could get a coach like Shaka Smart (from VCU) because no one wants to coach for a team whose best players are one and done year after year.
However, as harsh as it may seem, there may be some truth behind Pearl’s words. The Bruins may be living in the Wooden era and not looking at their current, realistic situation as a basketball program. One thing is for sure – whoever inherits the UCLA coaching job will have a lot of work to do. With a rabid delusional liberal flamboyant fanbase.
I heard that Pearl did want to drop by the campus though for one thing....he wanted to drop a Pearl necklace/load on all the ucla fans , especially those in this forum!, lmfao....
