Bumped from the diaries. GO BRUINS. -N
News and notes:
1) Kevin Love has essentially been cleared by the NCAA after investigation into possible violation of recruiting regulations in June 2006. Andy Katz at ESPN reports that the NCAA determined the contact between Love and our Great John Wooden "was perfectly legal because Wooden is on the UCLA payroll and the meeting took place on campus." As much as we knew this whole thing was ridiculous when it came out, it's still good to see that Love's name will be cleared. I do not fault the NCAA for investigating the matter, as illegal contact is a serious issue, and I applaud them for making the right decision. Link
2) Some Howlandwood gems that haven't been shown here at BN:
About the win over WSU...
"It's early to talk about that publicly," Howland said. "But I do talk about that with my team. It was huge." Howland is running this team with one goal in mind--a national title. Exactly how it should be. All is right in Westwood.
