I would heartily agree, but Steve Alford needs to take council from the fact that BR was strongly anti Jim Mora in the same baseless way saying he was a failed pro coach desperately looking to return to the NFL. Its all about Dan Guerrero. Anybody that "Cianti Dan" hires is condemned on the face of it. Find me an article where Nestor doesn't mention Dan Guerrero in some viscious way. Meanwhile, the baseball team won the NCAA championship, the football team is ranked higher than it has been in years and Howland was fired. Steve Alford would be well served to not read BR. Unfortunately, somebody talking to recruits will and that does not serve UCLA.

Good points!

I am sure Alford will pick up a few good recruits from the Indiana area heartland, but let's see what he can do to keep local kids from going to Arizona or entice East Coast kids to come to Westwood!

Go Bruins!

Hey Bite On, maybe your sorry football program can hire on Enfield in a dual role.

He could probably do just as good a job and your TrOJans can save some coin to apply towards your USC Player's Private Funding Reserve! Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh
