NCAA Tournament Envy?

Did you follow the story on twitter this week where UCLA athletic director Martin Jarmond gave two tickets to a Bruin fan in Indiana?

It struck me as exactly the kind of viral, organic interaction that Mike Bohn (and Brandon Sosna) wish they could do but it always comes across as forced or pre-calculated when executed from Heritage Hall.

  1. UCLA reaps praise on Inside SUCC. How about them Bruins.

    Dear Pisley must be flying around somewhere crapping on old smoky.

      3. Winning or losing the drake game won’t change how lucky the ruins were beating a BAD, BAD msu team. The only thing worse than the ruins were the spartans, and that is saying something.

        Hahahahaha

      4. Pudly — Something Lou Holtz said about bowl games applies to this tournament —“these aren’t exactly the same teams you saw in the regular season.”

    3. You said the First Four games don’t count.
      I disagree. I’m sure it counted when you were down 10 right? Not taking anything away from the victory but they had no buisness being in the tournament. Izzo made himself look like a coach who doesn’t have poise. They were 15-13 for a reason.

    4. The cleverness of your post overwhelms, JO. By the way, now that USC owns Pauley, you still owe us some back rent. So get hopping. And while you are out, get us some beer and chips. No dawdling this time and no stopping to play hopscotch.

      P.S. Wow, two whole tickets! Geez, UCLA PR really is going all out. Did they also send the fans free bobble heads?

  2. First day of NCAA tourney…plenty of good stories…and this is what we get? Jarmond must have sent Scottie a $20 to post this. Maybe $50 for the “viral, organic, interaction” phrase.

  3. WOLF, IF YOU HATE USC SO MUCH WHY THE F**K DO YOU STILL HAVE A BLOG ON USC ? I GUESS IT PAYS THE BILLS!!

    YOUR SCHTICK IS GETTING OLD.

    SERIOUSLY, I CAN’T DEFEND YOU ANYMORE.

    THE SAD TRUTH IS THERE ARE NO RELIABLE QUALITY INTERNET SITES THAT FOLLOW USC ANYMORE. EITHER TOO MUCH RAHS RAHS OR WANNA BE’S WITH THEIR SELF PROMOTING BS.

    HAPPY TO SEE THE B10 GO DOWN. IT MESSED UP MY BRACKET AND NOW I AM BIT WORRIED ABOUT ILLINOIS AND MICHIGAN JOINING MSU AND THE OSU.

    LET’S HOPE THERE ARE NO JAMES FORREST’S ON DRAKE. IF NOT, WE SHOULD WIN PRETTY EASY. PROPS TO THE BEAVERS – IT OBVIOUSLY WAS NO FLUKE BEATING COLORADO!!

    1. No fluke is right. They beat the ducks(x2), the Trojans, the ruins, and the buffs… now they disassembled what was considered by many a final 4 team. This team is playing hot right now… which reminds me of an old Hungarian adage “I love me some beaver”, which has nothing to do with basketball of course.

  4. The problem is with the USC fan base that considers the give away as pretentious Dispite what’s done because Clay Herron affects all judgements made by Bohn. I think it’s a great idea. Sell it up Scott. We need your opinion as well. Fight On!!!

  6. Wow has UCLA expectations dropped in basketball even the Athletic Director. 1 win in a “play in the tournament game”, and they all act like they won a nationship championship. Hard to believe how far this program has fallen compared to back in the day when expectations were final 4 or bust, and all the came up to that were like scrimmages. College basketball is well balanced now most programs are capable of beating anyone on a given day. Drake can beat SC no question so our team better be ready right from the opening tip with a goal to put this team away early because Drake can be quite dangerous if you let them hand around late in the game. If SC gets buy this team I am very confident they will play even better against Kansas a higher tier opponent.

  7. UCLA has no expectations in football because they have never won anyting for a long, long, long time. If attendance keeps dropping they won’t be able to pay their lease at the Rose Bowl, and will be forced to play their games on Spaulding Fields with 99Cents Only as their own advertising sponsor, and the Midget Basketball Coach Mickey Mouse Mick Cronin will be the Baby Bruin Mascot without any hair. THANK YOU DAN GUERRERO, CHIP KELLY, AND MOST OF ALL THE UCLA FOOTBALL FANS who now shop on Saturday’s at 99Cents Only stores instead of attending home games.

  8. Maybe a UCLA Football Ticket is now worth less than .99 cents about the same value as a SOCIOLOGY OR PSYCHOLOGY DEGREE FROM THIS LIBERAL ARTS UNIVERSITY.
