Tracy Pierson:: Hey guys...
BruinWord:: YEAH TP
Greg Hicks:: hey
BruinWord:: I just thought I would throw it out there, but i really do dislike SUC
NorthBruin40:: So what is the Future for Bruin Rewind, will they have the same show for 4 weeks after this saturday? Will there be a basketball show? Will it be UCLA Sports Magazine?
BruinWord:: It just needed to be said
Tracy Pierson:: Okay, thanks. That's just about it.
PatBruin:: Hi all... wha'd I miss?
lniomy:: Is this a test of the emergency broadcast system ?
pacificpal:: Is statsdave back yet?
BruinWord:: TP is running for
president of the
BruinWord:: thats ts
Greg Hicks:: BRO does not torture
NorthBruin40:: So do we start this off with a Lavin story or something?
BruinMike:: exception made for Wallace?
PatBruin:: BRO doesn't? Who is?
Intermezzo:: Is the FSN dude here yet?
Tracy Pierson:: Actually, I'd like to rescind the law against torture.
bruinvalley:: Hi my name is Dave Sobel, I produce Bruin Rewind. Thanks for all your support this year, it couldn't happen with out the help of the UCLA Athletic department, Coach Karl Dorrell, & AM570. Are there any questions to get started?
BruinMike:: for Wallace?
CruznBruin:: torture? are we back to Lorig again?
BruinWord:: IS there going to be a DVD produced
Intermezzo:: Lavin story? any Lavin story is actually a Lavin joke
BruinWord:: I live in
lniomy:: More cowbell
PatBruin:: You can't get into the visitor locker room after games bruinvalley?
Rainier Wolfecastle:: you're gonna want that cow bell
Intermezzo:: Welcome SObel
BruinWord:: Is there also gonna be a way to watch online, (ie purchase a package)
pacificpal:: Better question is do YOU have any questions for us?
lniomy:: Rewind marathon Friday night
bruinvalley:: Bruinworld, we still have to talk to UCLA about that. But we are definatly going to try.
Intermezzo:: Yeah, why is SC so annoying?
NorthBruin40:: How many more Bruin Rewind shows?
PatBruin:: on Bruin Rewind... more sideline shots with the coaches would be interesting... what they say and all...
BruinWord:: about the DVD or about the online ?
Rainier Wolfecastle:: agree with pat. The sideline stuff is great
pacificpal:: hi bob
bruinkenny:: hey guys
lniomy:: Sell a DVD of all the games with commentary.....NOT CHRIS ROBERTS
bruinvalley:: PatBruin Its the Coaches discreation on when we go in the Lockerroom. Home games are easier
BruinMike:: The fight song is a MUST!
Rainier Wolfecastle:: more panty shots of teh cherleaders
BruinMike:: Rainer has a point
BruinNation:: whats the word???
PatBruin:: ok bruinvalley.. but this isn't about easy... lol
dcbruin:: we do have a great cheerleader crew this year
Intermezzo:: If no song at the end, RW's request would be a good consolation
NorthBruin40:: Anyone know why uclaradio.com isn't playing the home basketball games online? They said they would before the season.
Rainier Wolfecastle:: do the cheerleaders have a lockerroom?
lniomy:: Montage of all bruin touchdowns this season back to back
BruinWord:: lol keep it tasteful guys
bruinvalley:: we try to use everything we can on the sideline with audio that we can hear. sometimes the stadium is just too loud
PatBruin:: BV... = bruinvalley.... BV.. get better mikes.. and spys.. lol
lakid:: hancock just sealed a UCLA victory with his comments
bruinkenny:: Whats the latest on Mr Love
pacificpal:: Valley - there must be SOMETHING you're looking for out of this?
lniomy:: Shot of team on BUS prior to the walk
mwmd1:: when will fox pressure cox cable into carrying fsn2?
Tracy Pierson:: The most request I get Dave, is to play Rewind in its entirety on line. Maybe have it available on BRO after it runs on Monday in its entirety?
Greg Hicks:: nothing new on Love -- he likes UCLA a lot -- I think it will be us or UNC
BruinWord:: yeah that would rock
lniomy:: Rewind for Hoops ?
PatBruin:: we should see it first
WestwoodBob:: I like the post game LOCKER ROOM shots the best.
mwmd1:: hicks whats with love wanting attention from Duke??
BruinMike:: Downloadable fight song!
dlebovic:: for some of the games, i feel like an hour show would be better
NorthBruin40:: Video-webcast for Sunday's BB game?
Greg Hicks:: Duke was a favorite growing up
luvdbruins:: You can start chatting, I'm here
Greg Hicks:: but I don't see him at Duke
dlebovic:: especially the high scoring ones....each drive only gets like 2 mins. in the half hour version
PatBruin:: Why NC still Greg?
Intermezzo:: Will BruinRewind be limited to FB games..or will you do it for bb games too?
bruinkenny:: Greg, UNC has 6 top 40 frontcourt signees
dcbruin:: did we play
CruznBruin:: how soon do you expect love to commit to us?
Greg Hicks:: PHS -- I'm sure they are in it -- but I don't think he goes to Duke
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?
TonyF:: UNC isn't even ranked in the top 25
Greg Hicks:: polo -- no way to know
PHS1:: Thanks, Greg.
uclaro:: greg, where does
luvdbruins:: maybe Love will do a Tayshawn on Duke
PatBruin:: King is a UCLA commit...
Greg Hicks:: uclaro -- USC or
BruinWord:: welcome huffster
PatBruin:: Hi Huff
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
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
Greg Hicks:: kenny -- he's not talking -- but I think UCLA is one of his top schools
lakid:: sc is giving us zero respect
BrandonHuffman:: Hey guys
bruinkenny:: Thanks GH
lakid:: it's going to come back and bite them in the ass
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
PHS1:: Irony is that Taylor King would thrive in the Howland set play offense.
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.
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.
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
bruinvalley:: Would you like to see more plays that set up a score?
BruinNation:: wsu fans? cal fans?
BruinWord:: if they are good plays (lol)
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"
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
artfu:: I'm seeing posts saying
that SC is popping off at the mouth. Where? Radio? TV? I'm in
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?
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
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"
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
11banners:: I agree PHS..I'm bored out of my mind
mwmd1:: greg would they rather have a pg instead of stanbeck/gant?
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
Greg Hicks:: PHS: Stanback would be another wing who can score, very good feel, good athlete
luvdbruins:: who really wants to
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.
PHS1:: Ugly, inefficient, unexciting basketball right now...
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.
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
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
PatBruin:: ok.. thanks
11banners:: Is there going to be any Bruin rewind for basketball once the Pac-10 starts?
TonyF:: Who's Dave?
NorthBruin40:: Dave's not here
bruinvalley:: With sideline audio we are are doing our best to get the best souns possible
PHS1:: Wooden or Ralph Miller basketall - up-tempo and high pressure I prefer.
artfu:: yeah? Whos Dave?
11banners:: Is the fox sports guy here yet?
pacificpal:: Valley = dave sobel
PatBruin:: bruinvalley... is fox guy
bruin34:: Greg Hicks..is DeAndre Robinson just not able to play at this level. Whats the deal?
JaztheUclan:: Tracy or Greg, any chance of getting Anthony Randolph into UCLA ?
CruznBruin:: bruinvalley is the fox sports guy
BruinWord:: valley is the guy asking questions= dave
Greg Hicks:: Jaz -- no on
11banners:: valley, are we going to get any bruin rewind for basketball once hte pac-10 starts?
bruinvalley:: no I don't think a there will be a rewind for hoops, but thinking about it
TonyF:: I'd love Bruin Rewind for Basketball
pacificpal:: that's a big mistake
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
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!
Greg Hicks:: Stanback and Gant are real options
bruinkenny:: Is there a problem with SPica LOI
loudoggydog1:: What's Chase Stankback's projected pistionin college
BruinWord:: Is mccloskey going to play?
NorthBruin40:: Or at least have the "UCL Sports Magazine" which apparently was replaced by Rewind
Greg Hicks:: loud -- wing, depends how big he gets if he's a two or three
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?
11banners:: Or is he too much of a liability on the offensive end or too small?
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?
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
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
artfu:: His Aboya still 6'8"? if so why not Power forward rather than c?
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
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...
bruinkenny:: Farmar return date news ?
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
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
BruinMike:: Always on Mighty Bruins!!!!
JaztheUclan:: Greg, is Gant as
athletic and more skilled than
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?
UCLA31:: Poor Greg. So many questions, so little time.
Ucla85:: Any word on the foreign guy?
11banners:: I bet Taylor King is talking shit about UCLA to Kevin Love
Greg Hicks:: jaz -- Gant is not as
insanity:: Kenny - you're reading too much into Vitale. He just spews diarrhea.
Intermezzo:: So many questions that require a crystal ball...
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
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
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.
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??
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
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
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
pacificpal:: we watch the game braodcasts like three or four times anyway
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
Russriop:: Thanks Greg. I think UCLA has a lot of upside this
year, but there will be games like
CruznBruin:: is terrance
11banners:: Huffman, do you prefer Panda Express or Rubios in Ackerman?
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.
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?
11banners:: Even the fans who show up to pauley, they make absolutely no noise
BruinWord:: Who will the coaches ask to grayshirt ?
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
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
dcbruin:: tracy/brandon, do you guys have any game film of Kia
BrandonHuffman:: McGee has been next to impossible to get in touch with since Katrina
Greg Hicks:: PHS -- haven't spoken with Jrue yet -- but Justin said they wouldn't necessarily go to same school
BrandonHuffman:: 11- I prefer Sbarros
Tracy Pierson:: I had two games of Kia, but really nothing that was worthy of highlights.
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
11banners:: Valley, I like seeing the fans in the pregame...show lots of cool tailgating stuff, hot girls
mwmd1:: national rankings are a joke
PatBruin:: ya.. I know
brewinbruins:: why don't we make a separate forum for ticket holders who can't go?
EmanBruin:: yes, my favorite is locker room
mwmd1:: cheerleader,hot chicks in opening
Tracy Pierson:: Ah, DC, you card.
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?
Intermezzo:: Bruinvalley, I like the band playing to the team walking out of the bus and unto the stadium
JaztheUclan:: regarding mcgee
PatBruin:: mezzo.. his first minutes... he was nervous
TheTruth2001:: Greg, got the tape of Spica yet?
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
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 --
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
The Chuck D::
pacificpal:: Wright not another Mata - he's better
PatBruin:: good idea Word
BruinSB:: Tracy or Greg, do we have any chance at Stafon Johnson or CJ Gable?
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,
BruinNation:: word, BH allows nobody in the locker room
sniffer:: opening is ok but would like KD's comments to crowd or more team rection to score
11banners:: Shots of the student section very far away to see the whole place going nuts
EmanBruin:: players getting ready
Greg Hicks:: pacific -- Wright has potential, and I think he might end up better than the other centers -- but he hasn't demonstrated that yet in practice
pacificpal:: He's WAY more athletic and will develop
PatBruin:: 11 just wants to be on TV...
TheTruth2001:: Wright is a future pro
11banners:: i said very far shots
NPBruin:: Any chance left with D Ross?
PatBruin:: uh huh... lol
pacificpal:: sorry to hear thqat about practice performance
BrandonHuffman:: If Ross would submit his transcripts, he may have a shot
NorthBruin40:: Best estimate of the first game back for Shipp?
mwmd1:: huff- is flordia cb > D Ross
11banners:: Huffman/Tracy, what is the impact of Horton playing instead of Keyes
11banners:: for Saturday
UCLA31:: I suspect Wright will start to catch fire next season
BrandonHuffman:: I havent seen Henderson (the Florida CB) so I can't make that call
PatBruin:: BH.. maybe Ross saw his transcripts... and is scared to submit?
Greg Hicks:: north -- nothing new on Shipp -- they keep saying mid to late December
BruinSB:: Tracy or Greg, do we have any chance at Stafon Johnson or CJ Gable?
brewinbruins:: will Shipp be 100% when he gets back?
bruinvalley:: are there shots that I cut away from too early?
BruinSB:: Sorry, Tracy or Brandon...
BrandonHuffman:: We have a better shot with Johnson than with Gable
Greg Hicks:: brewin -- what am I, God?
TheTruth2001:: GH, if u had a choice, who would u take Stanback or Gant?
Tracy Pierson:: I t hink the RB situation is going to be interesting.
Tantor:: players getting ready
brewinbruins:: you just might be
bruinvalley:: would you like to see splits screens, pplay and reaction
Intermezzo:: Greg, I'm tellin
you.....some folks here think you have a crystal ball....same with
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.
BrandonHuffman:: Gable is pretty much a lock for SC, IMO
Greg Hicks:: truth -- as of today, Gant -- but I could easily change my mind in the next couple months
BruinSB:: Gable seems like a RB to me...
brewinbruins:: i meant more as in are these types of hip injuries something that stays with you
Tracy Pierson:: But I think if they do get commitments from some of the national RBs, Johnson and Gable could get pissed.
Greg Hicks:: brewin -- not sure on the hip
PatBruin:: Horton have the cast off yet?
TheTruth2001:: Tp, who's the next to commit?
artfu:: Tracy/Brandon - who might leave the program at the end of this year?
BruinSB:: Would SC take 4 elite RB's, I mean could they?
PatBruin:: Anyone at practice see Horton?? Cast??
Intermezzo:: They took 4 elite QB's one year
The Chuck D::
CruznBruin:: TP/Brandon, any info on 2007 RB's/QB's UCLA might look good for?
bouncepass:: fuck SC
BruinWord:: TP or BHuff do you think Oatis might be a LB
PatBruin:: well said bounce
Tracy Pierson:: It's not hard to speculate that the guys who have been in the program that haven't played woud be at the top of the list.
CruznBruin:: if, perhaps, we fail to land an elite RB
BrandonHuffman:: Smith is a stud. Not quite as good as Ross, but good. Grades are abysmal though
TheTruth2001:: SB---heck yeah...2 will play, the other 2 will transfer or get buried on the depth chart
BrandonHuffman:: 2007 RB/QBs
BrandonHuffman:: Chris Forcier from
11banners:: Huff do you think we land Garrett Green
11banners:: the QB
BrandonHuffman:: Samson Szackaszy
The Chuck D:: So, he would be a longer shot than Ross from that comment
Tracy Pierson:: I think UCLA will be involved with Crenshaw's Carter and Tyler.
Tracy Pierson:: I'm hearing UCLA might be coming to an end with Ross.
BruinSB:: Why would Gable AND Johnson both go to SC if they get other elites at RB
PHS1:: Greg: How is UCLA doing with Brandon Jennings and Larry Drew, Jr.?
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
UclaWad:: what is the word on stanback?
BruinSB:: Biggins mentioned he's got a real good arm to boot
PatBruin:: Bruinvalley... replays of the same play? no... saw it several times at gametime... and PVR time..
artfu:: Will Ossar be the #2 QB next year?
Tracy Pierson:: Cruzn: Who?
BrandonHuffman:: Cowan will be the #2 QB
BruinSB:: Will Osaar be a QB next year?
Greg Hicks:: north -- fan of Duke because of their excellence -- not fan as in automatically hates UNC
CruznBruin:: TP: Osaar
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
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.
Intermezzo:: Bruinvalley, I think that lineup works very well...
PatBruin:: whew... thanks
Tracy Pierson:: SB: Undetermined as of right now.
Greg Hicks:: PHS -- yes, still trying, any chance would depend on Love -- if they get him, maybe that opens the door
PatBruin:: is good Bruinvalley
TheTruth2001:: GH, Ucla/NC battle for Love? should we be worried about Duke
BruinWord:: TP who are your predicctions on who UCLA gets
BruinSB:: You can always move him to safety or WR so it seems like no risk
PatBruin:: Isn't that a $C move bruinSB?
11banners:: Greg, is Stanback a combo guard? If Farmar goes pro his soph or jr year, we are in trouble at pg
Tracy Pierson:: I'd say Carter,
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?
Greg Hicks:: 11 -- no, Stanback is a 2/3
NorthBruin40:: Players most likely to greyshirt next year?
The Chuck D:: Marcel Reese...what happened to that name? the numbers (size, speed) too good to be true or acad problems?
PatBruin:: ok SB
Intermezzo:: Crap, hope Duke
doesn't pull an
Tracy Pierson:: One of Cornell, M.
11banners:: Greg, isn't it very likely that Farmar is gone by the end of his jr year?
BruinSB:: What about the FL kids is there a real chance at them
Bruin Steve joined
11banners:: Do you think we're going to be in trouble at pg or will collison an dkim suffice?
BRUINSALLTHEWAY:: both shows are great
UCLA31:: I don't think Kim will suffice, sorry.
BruinWord:: I like the presser, I think UCLA fans want to watch as much UCLA as you can (when we win)
Tracy Pierson:: Then I'd say one CB.
BRUINSALLTHEWAY:: of course more audio on the sideline would be awesome
Tracy Pierson:: One RB.
BrandonHuffman:: I think there is
an Excellent chance with the
PHS1:: Tracy and Greg: Do you completely foreclose the chance that UCLA and Taylor King get back together? King and Kevin Love are pretty good friends...
Greg Hicks:: 11 -- I think Farmar will be gone after junior year -- and yes, I think PG will be an issue -- we'll see if any 2007 PGs emerge as possibilities
The Chuck D:: 11banners, if Farmar
continues to play like he did against
11banners:: I'd personally watch USC Hoops Rewind
Tracy Pierson:: UCLA isn't recruiting King.
BruinSB:: Thanks Huff, I'd really like to get some FL kids
11banners:: so i can see how bad they are and laugh
bruinvalley:: Just a reminder. the Rewind marathon dec 2nd, starting at .
Tracy Pierson:: The Kings would have to bet the UCLA coaches, and I can't see that happening.
PatBruin:: Thanks Tracy, Greg, BH... and Bruinvalley... time to go back to work...
Greg Hicks:: PHS -- I don't like to say never, but unlikely in the extreme -- they're pretty good friends, but college decision won't be affected
BruinNation:: TP/BH, do you think Kerr is safe regardless what happens against sc?
BRUINSALLTHEWAY:: more players on the presser would be nice
Intermezzo:: bruinvalley, thanks..My TiVo's gonna get a workout
PatBruin:: 11... i don't think they even tape the $C BB games...
Tracy Pierson:: Nation: I think Kerr is relatively safe, but not untouchable.
BRUINSALLTHEWAY:: also a report or update of the scout team would be nice
BrandonHuffman:: Scout Team update comes after Signing Day
11banners:: if we beat SC, Kerr is goin nowhere
11banners:: if we get killed by SUC, he might be gone
BruinSB:: Tracy, Reggie Carter ready to step up next year?
dlebovic:: i think kerr gets one more year regardless, IMO
BruinWord:: there was a lot of hype on Jess Ward, do you think that he will be a contributor next year
Tracy Pierson:: I've heard he's been very impressive on the scout team.
BRUINSALLTHEWAY:: Do you see Roll having the ability in the future to create his own shot
UclaWad:: Is Stanback's Ucla's to lose?
BruinNation:: banners, what If sc drops 50+ on ucla?
11banners:: he should be gone
Greg Hicks:: bruins -- yes, think Roll will get more aggressive as he matures
Intermezzo:: even i SC scores 60 on us, I doubt Dorrell will get rid of Kerr.........
Intermezzo:: not saying I agree with that
BruinSB:: Thanks a million Tracy, Brandon, and Greg...
Tracy Pierson:: The coaches have liked Ward recently. At the beginning of practice, I wasn't very impressed, but he was probably hindered by injury.
Greg Hicks:: wad -- not necessarily on Stanback
The Chuck D:: Tracy/Brandon..with the bcs bowls being announced the day after our game..is that best case scenario for us (with a victory against sc)?
11banners:: Greg, if UCLA takes a pg in 2007, does that hurt us with Drew/Jennings? ANd of the two, who would you take?
Tracy Pierson:: PHS, I agree. But the flagship station gets input from UCLA, and UCLA, of course, doesn't want anything that's, well, objective.
NorthBruin40:: How about a few
BruinWord:: Keep up the good work Valley
Intermezzo:: np Bruinvalley, thanks for taking the time to hear our opinions
JimboBruin:: It would be great to sell a DVD of the rewind show...
11banners:: love the show Valley
michaelpaul:: I'm out of the loop, who are the FL kids you are talking about?
UCLA31:: Greg/Tracy, do you project AA2 as the clear starter at 5 next year? How do you project our chances in the Pac 10 and overall next year?
JimboBruin:: The whole season
BrandonHuffman:: Ashton Henderson (CB) and Craig Stevens (LB)
Greg Hicks:: 11 -- depends on which 2007 guy they took -- right now, I don't see anyone -- I'd take Drew as of today
Tracy Pierson:: 31: It's impossible to say. I've only seen him on tape and then in the summer of 2004.
Tracy Pierson:: PHS: I think so.
11banners:: Hicks, do you think next season we could see a lineup possibly of Farmar, Afflalo, Shipp, Luc, Keefe?
Intermezzo:: 11, who is our 5?
JimboBruin:: banners, I was just thinking about that lineup
11banners:: Keefe is the 5
Greg Hicks:: 11 -- quite possible
UCLA31:: How tall is Keefe?
Greg Hicks:: I think Keefe or Aboya starts with the other four
Intermezzo:: I didn't know he could play center
11banners:: Mezzo, Keefe is a big boy
BruinWord:: Would Keefe be starting for us now?
Greg Hicks:: he's not a center -- but he might be one of our five best guys next year
The Chuck D:: Are we ahead of
PHS1:: Tracy and Greg: If you are getting to see any of the hoops practices, any thoughts on what Howland is trying to do offensively? What is up with tempo and half court sets?
11banners:: I remember meeting Keefe 2 years ago and he looked like a volleyball player
Intermezzo:: as long as he can post...... anything's better than what we've got now
BruinNation:: 11, I saw Keefe at
Greg Hicks:: depends on how Wright and Mata develop
UCLA31:: I think you'll see Aboya/Keefe and Keefe/Luc splitting time at 5 and 4
11banners:: he's really hit the weights
BruinNation:: he still needs to get bigger
BruinMike:: Presser - Hate Billy Mac! Get a UCLA guy!
11banners:: He has one more year
JaztheUclan:: keefe didn't have great low post skills the last time i saw him play
BruinNation:: he loks to be 210-212
The Chuck D:: Hacksaw finally said something thta I liked.....
BruinWord:: Did hacksaw say I quit
Intermezzo:: Anyone hear Colin Cowherd's guest this morning talk about UCLA's academics???
BruinNation:: on the other hand...Keefe's gf is pretty hot
The Chuck D:: He said Drew Olson deserves to be invited as one of the 5 to Heisman
Greg Hicks:: PHS -- I think a lot of the offensive problems have to do with a lack of cohesiveness -- very little practice time due to injuries, playing freshmen too many minutes -- I'm not going to worry about it until we see the full team together late January
JaztheUclan:: Nation, I didn't say that Keefe didn't have any skills
PHS1:: Fair enough, I think, Greg. Thanks.
11banners:: I just hate how UCLA throws the ball around the perimeter for 30 seconds
UclaWad:: What have you heard about the Pauley renovation?
BruinNation:: TP/BH, I hear NDHS OL, Sammy Dimarntis will commit to ucla the minute they offer
michaelpaul:: will whatever RB we get this year affect
PHS1:: We know that those last few
Carson Bruin joined
BruinWord:: what year is Sanmmy Dimarntis
Intermezzo:: Anyway, Cowherd's guest was very complimentary about UCLA's academics and said SC's didn't compare. But UCLA' just doesn't get it when it comes to athletics..... HC salary, Pauley Pavilion renvoation...etc...
coachemup:: This is probably old news here, but did sc fullback hancock call UCLA "pansies?" When and where was this stated?
brewinbruins:: oh yeah, what is the latest on Pauley?
11banners:: It's taking so long to start the Pauley renovation
PHS1:: 11banners: They are dribbling the ball around the perimeter mostly. If they were passing it more, someone might get a high percentage look. When the 3s stop falling, UCLA is in trouble.
11banners:: True PHS. I at least am impressed with AA's new jumpshot. It's very pretty
BrandonHuffman:: DiMartinis is a junior
BruinWord:: is he good?
BruinNation:: yes, but if they offer during the summer
Intermezzo:: We might have lost yesterday if Ced's and AA's outside shots weren't as hot
BruinNation:: he'll be a Bruin
CruznBruin:: I agree, PHS. Passing the ball would be nice, but these guys bizarrely think they can dribble a team out of a zone
BrandonHuffman:: He's better than his Bro
PHS1:: Roll gets criticized by some, but he prioritizes the pass and cut better than anyone on the squad.
BrandonHuffman:: Who UCLA showed some interest in
BruinNation:: Heard that as well
bruinkenny:: I LOVE ROLL
UCLA31:: Love Roll's movement and passing.
BrandonHuffman:: Another guy to watch is Chris Carter, David Carter's younger Bro
11banners:: Roll and Collison are too apprehensive right now
11banners:: They will get better when they feel more confident
Intermezzo:: Roll has a good understanding of the game, IMO
PHS1:: CruznBruin: I simply prefer pass and cut basketball to dribble and screen basketball...
The Chuck D::
CruznBruin:: as do I
UCLA31:: Me too, PHS1.
11banners: Collison keeps passing up open shots and won't break down the zone when he really can
BrandonHuffman: Yeatman will end up on the East Coast. He really wants to play lacrosse
BruinNation:: guys, do you recall
how AA, JF and JS looked this time
CruznBruin:: As little dribbling as possible with great ball movement
PHS1:: I wish I had some tape of Howland's last few Pitt teams to compare...
The Chuck D:: Brandon is it Reuland or nothing at TE this class?
UCLA31:: I feel like
BrandonHuffman:: Chuck- I think so
CruznBruin:: unfortunately, from what I recall, Brandon Knight dribbled
the heck out of the ball
BruinYurk:: Sorry...just got here...but where is the football Chat?
Did I miss it?
BruinWord:: how likely is rueland
bruin88:: huff any chance we take two rbs?
BrandonHuffman:: Had John Reese had better grades, he may have been the guy
BruinWord:: is it really slim to non
BrandonHuffman:: Reuland is a longshot at best
BruinWord:: what about that guy from redlands
CruznBruin:: he'd dribble back and forth at the top of the key
PHS1:: Greg does, I think, make a fair and logical point that we should
wait until the whole team is back at practice to judge what is up.
BruinNation:: no, cruz
Tracy Pierson:: Okay, guys, have to take off -- going to see Gant and
Stanback play today.
Tracy Pierson:: See you later.
Greg Hicks:: PHS -- I think one difference with Pitt teams was they were
juniors and seniors. We've got freshmen and sophs -- our seniors, other
than Ced, can't play.
Intermezzo:: PHS1, do you think our offense will gel better come January?
Bigballer JZ left
UCLA31:: I think we'll look substantially different come Jan/Feb
11banners:: It's really depressing how Fey/Hollins look even worse this year
UCLA31:: This team has a lot of cohesiveness issues and a lot of
growing/gelling to do before march. I think it will happen.
SuinBruin47:: Howland must gnash his teeth at how soft Fey plays
PHS1:: Intermezzo: Howland is too good a coach for ineffective and
inefficient basketball to continue indefinitely. I will go with Greg -
experience and injuries are holding things back.
CruznBruin:: I don't think I've ever seen an entire position unit have
so much difficulty holding onto the ball
Intermezzo:: Fey seems to have regressed...maybe it's the
injury...whatever.... Hollins...ugh...ugliest post moves ever
BruinYurk:: No wonder everybody thinks we are a Basketball School...it
Carson Bruin left
Greg Hicks:: hopefully, Fey will at least get back to last year's level
as he gets healthy and some reps in practice
Intermezzo:: PHS1, ok. I agree...but the game was certainly painful to
Intermezzo:: doubts start creeping in
UCLA31:: Donnie Daniels is reputedly an excellent big man coach. I just
wonder if Fellins is simply uncoachable or at a ceiling interms of BB IQ
PHS1:: Agree with Greg that UCLA senior posts cannot play. Doubt Howland
would have recruited either of them.
Greg Hicks:: BB IQ is a huge part of the problem
SuinBruin47:: damn, if we had Pagett this yr....
SuinBruin47:: err, Padgett
Intermezzo:: Mata isn't much of a post player either...but he's much
more aggressive than Fey/Hollins
REDZONE00:: Hititlong is an idiot
CruznBruin:: the sad thing is, though, that it appears Howland believes
they are better than the guys he's recruited (other than Aboya/Luc)
PHS1:: Intermezzo: I am just as frustrated. Expected more and better.
But Greg makes good points. And remember how good Pitt was under Howland
with lesser talent.
REDZONE00:: oops, did I say that outloud?
BruinNation:: suin, hed on the bench, too, with a broken foot
SuinBruin47:: wouldna broken it at UCLA, Nation
Intermezzo:: PHS1, yeah, I just keep waiting for that to happen... I
guess it's easy to underestimate the effects of all the injuries....team
11banners:: PHS, you must admit though, right now, UCLA basketball is a
REDZONE00:: what happened at ?
11banners:: I'm glad everyone is mostly paying attention to football
SuinBruin47:: I'm with PHS on being frustrated at our guards' failure to
attack the basket
BruinNation:: relax, 11
11banners:: I hope this is Howland's last year of playing patsies
The Chuck D:: So, UCLA is still a basketball school!!
Intermezzo:: 11banners, I think outside of die-hard Bruins like us, our
games would be unwatchable...
PHS1:: Agree with Intermezzo and 11banners. But injuries prevent
improvement during practice.
SuinBruin47:: I kept yelling at the TV last night for Collison to attack
UCLA31:: It's a good thing we do have some cupcakes, or our record would
look pretty awful right about now.
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
PHS1:: Freshmen are going to play tentatively at times.
PHS1:: This is typical Ben Howland preseason scheduling - get used to it.
