luvdbruins:: You can start chatting, I'm here

Greg Hicks:: but I don't see him at Duke

PHS1:: Greg: Portland Tribune from Nov. 25 quotes Love as now saying Duke is back in it...

dlebovic:: especially the high scoring ones....each drive only gets like 2 mins. in the half hour version

BruinWord:: remove arizona game from memory

PatBruin:: Why NC still Greg?

Intermezzo:: Will BruinRewind be limited to FB games..or will you do it for bb games too?

mwmd1:: christy brinkly was a favorite of mine growing up, I got over it

polobenw:: what are the chances that love signs before he takes more visits?

BruinNation:: bhuff

BruinWord:: welcome huffster

PatBruin:: Hi Huff

stixpac joined

pacificpal:: bhuff rules

bruinkenny:: How are we doing on Stanback

bruinvalley:: how do you feel about the format of the show and are you( the audience) ever confused on where we are in the game. as far as quarter, time, and score

SPYBRUIN left

TonyF:: King=traitor

11banners:: Wow SUC for Taylor King

Tracy Pierson:: Greg and I are going to see Darnell Gant in one game today, and Chace Stanback in the nightcap.

11banners:: that's great

JaztheUclan joined

Greg Hicks:: kenny -- he's not talking -- but I think UCLA is one of his top schools

mexbruin joined

bruinkenny:: Thanks GH

lakid:: it's going to come back and bite them in the ass

samir joined

BruinNation:: banners, who said King to suc?

Intermezzo:: bruinvalley, I think the show is as close to perfect as you can get.  I'm never confused.

pacificpal:: non, not confusing

bruin99 left

PHS1:: Irony is that Taylor King would thrive in the Howland set play offense.

BruinsNo1 joined

StrathmoreAndGayley joined

PatBruin:: BV I don't like the time wasted on the previews before the commercials... then we see it again...  we're already watching... you don't need a teaser

BruinWord:: maybe have a scoreboard in the shot, but other than that I like the format, and how it has dfferent angels than a normal game

bruinkenny:: Maybe we can gt Love to graduate early from high school

49er2bruin:: Rewind isn't confusing at all.  The format is great, the quarter and time are updated so it's pretty simple.

BruinsNo1 left

dcbruin:: valley, that's never been a problem but I usually watch it from the start so I don't if someone jumping in in the middle would have the same perspective

NorthBruin40:: The point  of the game in Rewind can be confusing, but I usually remember the game well, so that isn't a problem.

NPBruin left

11banners:: Last night UNC's arena looked spectacular

luvdbruins:: King made a big mistake de-committing

Intermezzo:: Yup, I love the differing angles....great to see after watching the game from the normal angles

bruin34:: Greg Hicks..has Howland considered using DeAndre Robinson at all for backup minutes at the wing. From what I can remember he has the ability to shoot and put it on the floor which could help at this point. I

11banners:: Pauley is the 2nd worst homecourt in the country

Tracy Pierson:: Greg actually saw Stanback yesterday...

Intermezzo:: Come on fellas, we're supposed to be talking about Rewind....

Greg Hicks:: bruin34 -- no, Robinson is not an option

11banners:: if we lose Love I will put this one on UCLA fans

MrBug708:: Banners, but the best in LA

The Chuck D joined

PHS1:: How did Stanback look yesterday?

Tantor:: not cunfusing on those items

11banners:: Yeah we're only better than SUC, which is like saying we're better than a high school arena

EmanBruin:: Is it at all plausible to mike up the players and coaches, a la NFL Films?

BruinWord:: Hey whats the word on the upgrade of pauley

PatBruin:: Sure banners... lmao.. on the ucla fans...

Greg Hicks:: PHS -- Stanback looked good, but they were up 52-12 at half -- not a competitive game

artfu joined

bruinvalley:: Would you like to see more plays that set up a score?

BruinNation:: wsu fans? cal fans?

11banners:: CAL fans actually show up to their place when they are decent

BruinVic joined

BruinWord:: if they are good plays (lol)

bruindds joined

Thalion left

Tantor:: nah, big plays and scoring plays

mwmd1:: greg would a 07 class of  Love, Gant, Stanback be a quality and realistic class for ucla

pacificpal:: Anything else, BV?

11banners:: I don't think anyone really cares about UCLA hoops anymore

BruinNation:: lol..."when they are decent"

luvdbruins:: Cal didn't have to live through the Lavin era

PHS1:: Greg, what would Stanback add to the UCLA mix?

sniffer:: I love Rewind.. it is frustrating with a few too many commercials.-- would like to see more after game and locker room reaction...

CruznBruin:: more plays that set up a score would be good

dlebovic:: valley - more of a set up is good...i remember with the fake punt call against Cal there was like no set up

artfu:: I'm seeing posts saying that SC is popping off at the mouth. Where? Radio? TV? I'm in atlanta so I'm out of the loop

PatBruin:: bruinvalley... more stuff we haven't seen during the game....  did you see my comment about the teasers before the commercials?

dcbruin:: agree with tantor, big plays and scoring plays are the key

dlebovic:: and no mention of KD's great face bluff

bruinvalley:: any interest in what the opposing sideline is doing?

Bruinian joined

bruinkenny:: I think Howland should play Ryan Wright.. I cant imagine he being any worse than Fellins

11banners:: I thought by now UCLA fans would be back and supporting the program...Instead it's still as empty as 3 years ago

Greg Hicks:: mwm: Love, Gant and Stanback would be a very good class, although I'm not sure they'd take all three

luvdbruins:: Wright looked good yesterday

sniffer:: opposing sideline shots would be good at key moments, TDs ints etc.

bruinkenny:: 11banners, thats UCLA hoop fans

pacificpal:: anything that wasn't on the original game broadcast is what we're looking for

dcbruin:: valley, the sideline stuff is good

Tantor:: i'd like to see SCs sideline cry after they lose

CruznBruin:: yeah, I would have loved to have seen some of stoops on the sideline

BruinWord:: it looks empty because the camera is on the wrong side

bruinvalley:: Patbruin no, can you repeat

49er2bruin left

dlebovic:: get some shots of the SUC players crying after the game this weekend, please

TonyF:: Pauley will fill up once the bigger opponents come to town

NorthBruin40:: How many of the seats are sold as "season tickets"

WestwoodBob left

11banners:: Word, the entire top section is empty

PHS1:: 11banners - it would help if UCLA hoops was more pleasing to watch...

coronabruin:: ucla fans suck

coronabruin:: and didnt play teams from canada

11banners:: I agree PHS..I'm bored out of my mind

mwmd1:: greg would they rather have a pg instead of stanbeck/gant?

Ucla85 joined

TonyF:: we scheduled a weak bunch of teams to start the season at home

Tantor:: valley, can they get louder volume on the sideline conversations?

bruinkenny:: Why did we schedule Albany?

yobruin joined

Greg Hicks:: PHS: Stanback would be another wing who can score, very good feel, good athlete

luvdbruins:: who really wants to see Albany and Coppin State?

bruinkenny:: That doesnt help the RPI

Tracy Pierson:: Okay, let's hold off just for a second, and let Mr. Sobel ask you all some questions.

BruinNation:: me

stixpac left

statsdave joined

OgdenTheGreat joined

PHS1:: Ugly, inefficient, unexciting basketball right now...

statsdave left

PatBruin:: Bruinvalley... the teasers of scoring plays in the next section before the commercials... seems like a waste of time when you're showing it later... show more sideline stuff... don't repeat plays...

Greg Hicks:: mwm -- they might, but there are very few PGs out there

BruinWord:: We need W's right now, and its a good thing we did with our injuries

PHS1:: Thanks, Greg.

artfu:: Sobel?

mwmd1:: thank you, greg

Bigballer JZ joined

coronabruin:: is ucla818 a ucla level recruit?

Tracy Pierson:: Dave, you have 75 Bruin fans in here, so ask away.

coronabruin:: i heard he made varsity

coronabruin:: lol

BruinNation:: PHS demands Wooden basketball

Tantor:: more cheerleader shots of Whitney, please

sniffer:: Coacing dialogue would be great as long as it doesn't give away anything

bruinvalley:: good suggestion pat will work on that

11banners:: Thank Howland that we scheduled an easy schedule...We'd be 3-3 with a tough schedule

scott98 joined

PatBruin:: ok.. thanks

loudoggydog1 joined

scott98 left

PatBruin:: .

TonyF:: I'd love Bruin Rewind for Basketball

pacificpal:: that's a big mistake

bruinclass05 joined

lakid:: ddi Tracy give any scoops???

11banners:: I'd really love Bruin rewind for bball

Intermezzo:: I think a rewind for UCLA hoops would be good.... but a mistake for Trojan hoops

loudoggydog1:: Bruin rewind would have 2 games each weeek to do

TonyF:: maybe once a week, covering all the games played that week

mwmd1:: how about bruing rewind on fox sport net rather than fsn2

dlebovic:: how about bruin rewind for the cheerleading team?

UCLA31:: Rewingd for hoops would be an excellent idea.

bruinkenny:: Greg Who is UCLA dream class for next year in your opinion

Rainier Wolfecastle left

11banners:: exactly Lou

JaztheUclan:: even if randolph improves his grades dramatically in the next two years?

pacificpal:: one show covering both games

mwmd1:: good question kenny

Tantor:: what about rewind for the big hoops games

Greg Hicks:: kenny -- I don't think that has been determined, except that Kevin Love is part of it

BruinNation:: good call, pal!

BruinVic left

Davebruin joined

Greg Hicks:: Stanback and Gant are real options

scrimsst joined

Greg Hicks:: loud -- wing, depends how big he gets if he's a two or three

insanity left

11banners:: Tracy/Greg, do you think Howland may start Aboya at the 5?

The Chuck D:: Greg...is Stanback and Gant too similiar to take both..or is it possible, they could play together?

OgdenTheGreat left

11banners:: Or is he too much of a liability on the offensive end or too small?

Davebruin left

Greg Hicks:: 11 -- yes, Aboya will start at 5

sniffer:: Bruin rewind would be great with fewer interruptions (longer flow of material  and longer commercial breaks)

bruinkenny:: Greg, UCLA no interestin Darren Dayes son?

11banners:: Wow, that's awesome

BruinNation:: really, greg?

insanity joined

11banners:: I thought ABoya was even better than Luc in the summer

11banners:: that is promising

Greg Hicks:: chuck -- no, very different -- Gant closer to a four, and Stanback closer to two

BruinWord:: TP what is your prediction on the Football game this weekend

Greg Hicks:: kenny -- no on Daye

bruinvalley:: when we do get in the lokerroom, is the coaches speech too long or short? do you always want to hear Might bruins?

Intermezzo:: sniffer, do you have TiVo?

bruin34:: Hicks.. again is D.Robinson  just not able to play at the PAC 10 level?

Greg Hicks:: 34 -- correct

stanmcel joined

PHS1:: Greg: Is Gant a front line or perimeter player? If front line, isn't there a back up of guys there on the roster?

dlebovic:: locker room stuff is great after a win

lakid left

artfu:: His Aboya still 6'8"? if so why not Power forward rather than c?

NPBruin joined

Intermezzo:: bruinvalley, I ALWAYS want to hear MightyBruins...  coaches speech seems fine...

NorthBruin40:: Who will be our next football commit?

pacificpal:: Valley - you're on the clock here

loudoggydog1:: Ryan Wright... Is he going to play more?

Greg Hicks:: PHS -- remains to be seen -- 6-9 now, but has wing skills

PatBruin:: bruinvalley... I like to hear the coaches... or any speeches in the locker room

Tantor:: always Mighty Bruins- basically anything behind the scenes is good

TheTruth2001 joined

uclajeremy joined

The Chuck D:: With the soft early season schedule, shouldn't we be playing Ryan and Mata more minutes?

sniffer:: agree locker room stuff is great.. coaches speech and mighty bruins can be great closing moments...

samir left

MormonBrew left

bruinkenny:: Farmar return date news ?

EmanBruin joined

luvdbruins:: This is boring, where are the rumors and inside info?

bruin34:: Greg Hicks...how bout Kelvin Kim is he an option?

artfu:: Greg - Why would Aboya play the 5 and not the 4?

Greg Hicks:: art -- Aboya has five man skills, not PF skills

PatBruin:: Bruinvalley... get into the visitor locker rooms when we're on the road... (this isn't about easy)

mwmd1:: greg-how tough is it projecting 2 years down the road for college coaches with everything happening so early in recruiting

scrimsst left

artfu:: thanx greg

Intermezzo:: the locker room stuff is the best part of the show...... anything behind the scenes....coaches & players' reactions to good plays, ...etc.

Greg Hicks:: mwm -- major issue, makes recruiting very difficult

MrBug708 left

BruinMike:: Always on Mighty Bruins!!!!

JaztheUclan:: Greg, is Gant as athletic and more skilled than Randolph?  Randolph is obviously a 7 footer who we could use immensely.?

Russriop:: Greg, do you think UCLA will eventually revert to start its best 5 players regardless of having a true center?

insanity:: Greg, why can't Howland sign a 5?

bruinkenny:: Tracy, how about my Dick Vitale theory  that he was trying to ruin it for UCLA and get Love to ROyboy

TonyF left

PatBruin:: Gee Tracy... maybe you should schedule a chat for BB every week... get Greg in here...

hopsing joined

NYCBRUIN joined

UCLA31:: Poor Greg.  So many questions, so little time.

Ucla85:: Any word on the foreign guy?

TopCat73 left

uclajeremy left

11banners:: I bet Taylor King is talking shit about UCLA to Kevin Love

Greg Hicks:: jaz -- Gant is not as gifted as Randolph, but a better kid and better fit for UCLA

insanity:: Kenny - you're reading too much into Vitale.  He just spews diarrhea.

uclajeremy joined

Intermezzo:: So many questions that require a crystal ball...

NYCBRUIN left

bruinvalley:: we are not allowed in the vistors loker room.

Tracy Pierson:: I think someone probably told Dick that they thought Love would go to UCLA. So, Dick, who doesn't have a fine attention to detail, just said that Love is going to UCLA.

11banners:: Tracy/Greg, is Gant close to committing?

bruinkenny:: Does the staff still talk to Taylor King

Greg Hicks:: Russ -- I think that is a real possibility -- go with best five guys -- I think Aboya will be one of those five

vandat joined

bruinvalley:: Home locker room is not always available to us.

bruin34:: Hicks...do you you think Kim can end up playing at the PAC10 level?

insanity:: Why can't Howland sign a 5?

PHS1:: Vitale probably being told by lots of Division head coaches and assistants that Love is going to UCLA.

NorthBruin40:: Will anyone get the 13th scholi this year?

Tracy Pierson:: 11banners: I've heard that Gant and his family could come up to UCLA's campus in the next couple of weeks. i would think UCLA would try to push him to commit then.

pacificpal:: Valley - you gotta have some questions for us, right? 

11banners:: Awesome, thanx Tracy

BruinNation:: tracy, do you think AA2 will be starting at the 5?

PatBruin:: that was the rumor pal... lol

CruznBruin:: does anyone have a list of all of ucla's 4 year starters in football?

Tracy Pierson:: I think Aboya will have a good chance to start at the five.

pacificpal:: sheesh

artfu:: Greg, I don't know if this was asked already but, why isn't Wright getting any time

Intermezzo:: Bruinvalley, all in all, Rewind has a very nice flow to it..  It has a good balance of on the field action with off the field stuff.  I also like the part when the team walks from the bus to the stadium

JaztheUclan:: tracy and greg, project ucla 2007 basketball recruiting class right now

PatBruin:: BB... why not play Wright more now??

uclajeremy:: test

ulhg182 joined

Tracy Pierson:: I would bet, if healthy, he'd be able to average 6-7 rebounds a game.

bruinkenny:: Fey is so soft

Greg Hicks:: 34 -- no on Kim at Pac-10 level

BruinNation:: thanks

bruinvalley:: pacificpal, would like to see more sideline or plays

Tracy Pierson:: If you can do that, and play defense,  you're in.

11banners:: Valley, it's hard to say how to improve the show, it's pretty damn good

pacificpal:: sideline

PatBruin:: sidelines... we've seen the plays...

11banners:: All I can say is bring Bruin Rewind to hoops once the Pac-10 starts

Tracy Pierson:: Hey, someone ask Brandon some football recruiting questions.

pacificpal:: we watch the game braodcasts like three or four times anyway

loudoggydog1:: Bradford

NorthBruin40:: How about 60 minutes vs. 30 minutes :-)

Greg Hicks:: art -- Wright is extremely raw -- but given how bad everyone else is, maybe he'll get more of a chance

PatBruin:: Brandon... what about football recruits?

Russriop:: Thanks Greg.  I think UCLA has a lot of upside this year, but there will be games like Albany at times...

loudoggydog1:: austin... what's the story

bruin34 left

coronabruin:: brandon, why Kai Forbath only a 3 star!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CruznBruin:: is terrance austin a "silent commet"?

polobenw:: tracy - do you think londong will be much better on sat than he was earlier in the season?

11banners:: Huffman, do you prefer Panda Express or Rubios in Ackerman?

sniffer:: Brandon... can we get CJ?

bruinkenny:: G

PatBruin:: who cares about stars once they commit?

BruinNation:: TP/GH: whats up with Pauley renovation?

The Chuck D:: What is the deal with Konrad?..is he or isn't he off the table?

mwmd1:: huff is flordia cb > ross

BruinWord:: Huffman, who do you think our RB commit(s) will be

TheTruth2001:: Greg, why Ryan Wright is not getting pt? can't be worst than Mata or Fellins

Tracy Pierson:: IMPO, you play Mata and Wright, let them develop. If in any game they become a real bad defensive liability you bring in Hollins/Fey for a while.

PatBruin:: Cruz... ask UCLAPU

bruinkenny:: Greg rather see more of Wright who is an athlete than Fey

artfu:: Greg, would u say Wright is more or less "raw" than Mata was last year?

Greg Hicks:: jaz -- I think UCLA gets Love -- beyond that, class is hard to project -- I'd guess Gant or Stanback , probably not both

insanity:: Does anyone really think the problem is Pauley?  I don't.

PHS1:: Brandon - How important is UCLA performance against USC for remaining scholarships?

dcbruin:: brandon, do any of our committed guys have grade issues

Greg Hicks:: art -- more raw than Mata

bruinkenny:: Insanity we need attendance

11banners:: The problem is the fans behind the bench

bruinkenny:: UCLA doesnt draw

CruznBruin:: are the UCLApus in here?

artfu:: wow

BruinSB joined

11banners:: Even the fans who show up to pauley, they make absolutely no noise

BruinWord:: Who will the coaches ask to grayshirt ?

PatBruin:: oops

11banners:: and htey can't even wear a blue t-shirt

loudoggydog1:: greg.. are gant and stanback the same player?

Tracy Pierson:: Yes, there are some committed guys who need to improve academically.

bruinvalley:: how do you feel about seeing the others teams scores, do you want to see the set up to those

BruinWord:: wow TP is BHuff even there

BrandonHuffman:: Forbath being a 3-star is a joke.  I've been talking with the people who do the national rankings weekly telling them to move him up.  They dont listen very well

Tracy Pierson:: From what I've heard, Walter Watts is one.

BrandonHuffman:: He was the #1 punter, now he's the #3 PK

BruinWord:: the 4 star?

BruinWord:: was his injury that bad

insanity:: UCLA needs to develop an internet based ticket sell-back.  Everyone I know wastes their tickets when they can't go.

BrandonHuffman:: I think the RB commit will be Slocum

PHS1:: Greg: How interested in Jrue Holiday is UCLA? Does a school need to take his brother also to get him?

Intermezzo:: Bruinvalley, I think just the actually play where they score is enough.....

PatBruin:: Bruinvalley... sometimes is ok... but none if $C scores this weekend

Greg Hicks:: truth -- Wright has been outplayed in practice consistently by the other big men

JaztheUclan:: brandon, how good is jeremy mcgee, will we get any tape on him, will he be asked to greyshirt

11banners:: Tracy, what have u heard about Reggie Carter in practice this year?

BruinNation:: why give a FG kicker 4*?

Russriop:: Greg, who's inane comments are making you laugh the most?

loudoggydog1:: tracy who are the commits with academic work to do

The Chuck D:: Brandon or Tracy..or anyone else..has anyone seen Slocumb in person?  What is your opin? I'm not overly impressed with his videos

pacificpal:: I want to see stuff on rfewind that I can't see on the game broadcast

Tracy Pierson:: The first game was his first game back from injury.

PatBruin:: Katrina is his girlfriend?

bruinvalley:: how do you feel about the opening segment, what would you like to see out of the pregame?

bruinkenny:: Ucla hoop fans who cant go should sell on stubhub .com

coronabruin:: i like the pregame stuff

Tracy Pierson:: Second one, the action went away from him quite a bit.

BruinWord:: Pat not a funny joke

Intermezzo:: I think Wright needs to loosen up....looked too restricted out there for some reason.... 

coronabruin:: locker room is most important part of teh show

JaztheUclan:: have you seen any of play in his senior year;  his lack of size and  ranking worries me a little as we could probably get higher ranked corners;  does he project at corner at ucla. 

bruinvalley:: how about the open, do you like how the show starts?

JaztheUclan:: regarding mcgee

artfu:: brandon - of the committed DLinemen who do you think will be most ready to contribute next year?

BrandonHuffman:: Savage

NorthBruin40:: For those of you ticket holders who sit next to fans that miss 50% or more of the games, what do you say to them?

pacificpal:: Bruinwalk should be an essential

BrandonHuffman:: Jerzy right behind him

EmanBruin:: players and coachs' reaction to plays would be cool

Tracy Pierson:: No tape of Spica, yet.

PHS1:: Greg: In looking for their next point guard, how is UCLA doing with Jennings and Drew, Jr.?

insanity:: Is Spica a 4 or 5?

CruznBruin:: Are we going to be able to see the Christian Ramirez highlight tape anytime?

bruinkenny:: Greg, was it a mistake to take Wright, being that he is another Mata?

Greg Hicks:: Russ -- Tracy told me I'm not allowed to laugh at anyone

BruinWord:: Yes, show us stuff that ABC or FSN cant show, pregame, the walk, the prep, the players gettin pumped beofre kickoff

PatBruin:: Bruinvalley... opening is ok

Intermezzo:: PatBruin, yeah, I guess so...but my heart almost stopped when I saw him make that post-up turnaround....  I knew he had some natural ability...just needs to wake it up

UCLA31:: Valley, Rewind does a great job of catering to fans -- from tailgating shots (of which I was a part at one game) to locker room discussions, sidelines.  Keep up the good work, and consider Rewind for Hoops.

PatBruin:: ya Pal... you can tell from that one shot he took

11banners:: Valley, i'd like to see more views of the crowd during rewind

bruinvalley:: in open segment, do you want to hear a break down of the game, or players getting ready,

NorthBruin40:: Best estimate of the first game back for Shipp?

11banners:: Huffman/Tracy, what is the impact of Horton playing instead of Keyes

11banners:: for Saturday

Tracy Pierson:: You can't underestimate USC's ability to take more than one prospect.

pacificpal:: OK lunch time's over boyz - seeya later.  Thanks for the BB info Greg! 

BruinSB:: I would have thought we had a better chance with Gable over Johnson

CruznBruin:: Would Johnson qualify?

dcbruin:: we seem to be second choice for a lot of rb's, which kind of sucks

Tracy Pierson:: They'll tell Gable he's an athlete.

PatBruin:: Horton have the cast off yet?

TheTruth2001:: Tp, who's the next to commit?

PatBruin:: Anyone at practice see Horton??  Cast??

CruznBruin:: Forcier is pretty mobile, too, right?

dlebovic:: how do you pronounce that? samson sack-a-see, it sounds like?

BruinWord:: boo i wanted ross

PatBruin:: Anyone at practice see Horton??  Cast??

Tracy Pierson:: There might be some issues with the academics.

The Chuck D:: 11banners, I read your question too fast, I thought you said Gaston Green....

BruinSB:: I like Forcier because I can pronounce his last name..

bruinvalley:: after td's, would you like to see more replays,

Greg Hicks:: PHS -- I think Drew will be the more realistic option at the end of the day

Tracy Pierson:: Forcier is a better athlete right now than a thrower.

Tracy Pierson:: He ran a 4.5-something 40.

Tracy Pierson:: I was there and saw it. He's very fast.

PHS1:: Either would be be excellent.

NorthBruin40:: Greg, how do you explain Love growing up a Duke fan, and now UNC is one of his favorites? Doesn't really compute from a fan's perspective. Maybe players look at these things differently than fans?

CruznBruin:: is he more polished than rashaan?

Intermezzo:: bruinvalley, yeah, TD's from a different angle would be great

dlebovic:: TP - what are your thoughts on UCLA taking Green as an athlete/QB? is it looking like to happen more now?

bruinvalley:: what do you think of the Monday night line up, with rewind and the Presser

Tracy Pierson:: IMO, Forcier's arm was just okay when I saw him last spring. But it looked like he has a long way to go physically, so by this spring it could have improved.

11banners:: How can you not like Duke growing up

CruznBruin:: I guess I'm asking for a comparison between the two

BRUINSALLTHEWAY:: what did I miss

11banners:: they go to the final 4 almost every year, amazing crowd etc

PatBruin:: Tracy can you ask Jessica if Horton has the cast off his wrist yet?

PHS1:: Greg: Is UCLA still trying with Kyle Singler? If so, what kind of shot do they have with him?

Tracy Pierson:: I like Green, and I'd take him. I think UCLA needs as much insurance at QB as possible.

Tracy Pierson:: Horton does have the cast off.

BruinSB:: Tracy is the staff going to offer Green

Greg Hicks:: truth -- I think it will be UNC/UCLA at the end -- although, you obviously can't ignore Duke completely

BruinSB:: Pat, if we tell him up front, then no

bruinvalley:: what do you like about the Presser, and what is missing?

11banners:: Greg, if UCLA takes a pg in 2007, does that hurt us with Drew/Jennings?  ANd of the two, who would you take?

UCLA31:: It's a good thing we do have some cupcakes, or our record would

11banners:: Mezzo, no doubt.  I couldn't believe yesterday watching on
TV.  I felt a Lakers crowd looks more lively and more exciting than this
team
PHS1:: Freshmen are going to play tentatively at times.
PHS1:: This is typical Ben Howland preseason scheduling - get used to it.
