Seth Davis Addendum

I was reading Seth Davis's mailbag today when some familar language appeared in a question:

No doubt UCLA isn't the top-10 team some claimed they were, but you went way overboard this week with your UCLA/Arizona comparison. Here are some things to keep in mind. UCLA dismantled Arizona 83-60 a few weeks ago. Arizona is 2-6 on the road, with the only wins coming against the Oregon schools. UCLA is ahead of Arizona in the Pac-10 standings. In the last three weeks, UCLA has outscored its opponents, including two bubble teams (USC, Notre Dame) and an NCAA tourney lock (Cal) by an average of 12 points, even if you include the two losses this past weekend.

Ryan Rosenblatt, Los Angeles

It sounded familiar because I wrote every word beginning with "UCLA dismantled ..." here, but it was surprising because I'm not Ryan Rosenblatt. So, to Ryan, whoever you are, I know that it's easy to cut and paste someone's words and submit them to si.com as if they were your own words, but just because it's easy to do doesn't make it the right thing to do. Next time, I would appreciate it if you would please use your own words to convey useful information such as this to others. Thank you.

Go Bruins!
