UCLA Football Getting Premature in its Self Promotion

There’s that saying out there — you don’t tug on Superman’s cape. With that in mind, I present the latest advertisement by the UCLA Athletic Department that appeared in the LA Times on Monday, as passed along by Gutty Little Bruins. I really do appreciate the enthusiasm by the athletic department, but I don’t think…Read More

Oklahoma Freshman Josh Jarboe Kicked Off Team for Rap Video

Once again we have encountered the line that falls between athletes’ personal and public lives. Earlier this year, Wake Forest kicked running back Luke Caparelli off the team for some comments he wrote on his Facebook profile. Even Shaq had his police badges stripped for a distasteful rap where he slammed Kobe Bryant. Now it’s…Read More

Les Miles Works in Crack on Alabama

And why not, that seems to be quite the easy theme these days, no? So this totally flew under my radar, but luckily SNR host Tim Brando lives and breathes LSU athletics and was talking about the story on-air Wednesday, so I was able to catch it. Apparently Les Miles worked in a not-so-subtle dig…Read More

Carson Palmer Ripping Ohio State Was Cool, Apologizing Was Weak

Given that I’m a Bruin and dislike darn near everything SC (with the exception of a few reasonable Trojan friends and other things), it’s pretty hard to say that I have a favorite Trojan. So I guess if I had a Trojan who I disliked the least, it would probably be Carson Palmer. It’s pretty…Read More

Charlie Weis a Product of Spygate?

I’m sure this crossed my mind last year when the news about Spygate first came out. It got us all wondering how legitimate the Patriots’ success was. It made me wonder how good their defense, offense, and coaches really were if they had the advantage of knowing opponents’ plays ahead of time. Which brings us…Read More

Not a Good Day for San Diego State

San Diego State football took a major hit on Tuesday, and they didn’t even step on the field. In case you missed it, the Academic Progress Rates were released by the NCAA on Tuesday. San Diego State football was ranked 5th worst of all 119 D-I teams. Wasting no time, the NCAA has already penalized…Read More

Rivals, Scout, More Power than Coaches?

The Wiz has an interesting piece on a story not many people are giving much mind (with the exception of everyone in the SEC). Not long ago the NCAA introduced what is known as The Saban Rule. The rule limits coaches from making off-campus visits between April 15 and May 31st. Saban is understandably pissed…Read More

UCLA Football Keys to Success: Ditch Spring Practice

Apparently there’s a tradition with the football program that they ditch a Spring practice every year. Though I was at school there four years and have followed the team for much longer, I hadn’t heard of it til now. Perhaps it’s because the team never had much hype or expectations. Or perhaps it’s because of…Read More
