UCLA targeting former Penn State DC Tom Bradley to lead defense

UCLA is in the market for a new defensive coordinator. Their last DC, Jeff Ulbrich, famously left for the Atlanta Falcons as quickly as he could after National Signing Day.

They have risen in the Pac-12 Total Defense rankings every year of Mora’s tenure although the scoring defense did take a hit...

Best and Worst From This Weekend in College Basketball

With the NBA on hiatus for the All-Star break and no football to speak of, college basketball took center stage this weekend. Most of the action took place on Saturday with each of the top-four teams in the nation coming out on top against less-than-stellar competition. While the statistical highlight of the weekend might have been Jahlil Okafor’s 23-point, 13-rebound performance...

Bill Walton: Throw it Down Snoop Dogg

Call it a hunch, but I bet that when Bill Walton heard about UCLA head football coach Jim Mora hanging out with Snoop Dogg he was a little jealous. While Mora said it was a completely normal experience, Walton is probably thinking it would be a normal day in Snoop's life (meaning he--Walton-- would enjoy a little something special with Snoop).This is all a guess of course based off...
