UPDATE: Finally we get to hear from some knowledgeable college football fans from the internets. Check out this from our friends over at Roll Bama Roll who know a little something about a mediocre coach not getting it done and replacing him with someone who has an established track record of getting it done. I have written here before. My trip to Tuscaloosa few years ago is one of my all time favorite Bruin roadies which was a lot of fun because of the opportunities we had to interact with so many cool and sophisticated football fans. The good guys over at RBR just reconfirmed that all over again. Rooooooolll Tide. GO BRUINS -N
Let's start with a little tennis action on this humpday. Our ladies gave a valiant effort but they came up a little short in their question for 101. They fell to Georgia Tech Yellowjackets by a score of 2-4. And it sounds like the Tech ladies had a little extra support:
Senior Alison Silverio clinched the title with her 7-5, 5-7, 6-1 win at No. 2 singles over UCLA's Tracy Lin.
It was Georgia Tech's first women's tennis title. UCLA had also been seeking its first NCAA title. Georgia Tech had the support of hundreds of rooters on the campus of archrival Georgia.
we also have a little news from the hardwood. Ryan Wright if you guys don't know already is transferring to Oklahoma. From Bruin Basketball Report:
"I've made my decision and I feel that Oklahoma is the best place for me," Wright said.
Lastly, speaking of "student" athlete:
Barrett did not meet an NCAA rule which requires an athlete to pass a minimum of six units per semester.
Not much else to say about a joke of a scandal tainted thuggish football program.
