Too Jerime is only averaging 5.8 points and 3.8 assists! I still fault Ben Howland for this season. He should have had the team tour over seas, to bond and learn each other. This is really sad that Ucla is paying this kind of money for a season like this. These guys are All-Americans, and they are good. They need a coach who will challenge them. Ucla has been young every season, this season is no different, why so many losses early on? C O A C H I N G.

I guess the three final fours and five stright trips to the dance mean nothing. The greatest number of players from any school in the NBA means nothing. The loss of the likely point guard to the pros means nothing.

Butch, you sound like a Steve Lavin kind of fan. There are plenty of empty seats for you over at Galen Center if you are unable to cut Coach Howland a little slack with his young team. Go Bruins.

Howland fell into the "One and Done" trap with Kevin "May I have my check now " Love. He wasn't able to reload quickly. I also think that some players are shying away becuase of his defense firscoaching. He has had a good record so far, but in sports it's waht have you done for me lately. And why don't you Google Lavins record, very impressive. Great coach too.
