Please use this thread to provide your feedback. If you are going to criticize please provide them in a well thought out manner instead of just ranting. If you think the plan is fair and equitable it would be great to heart that POV as well. It will be very interesting to hear all the takes so that we can move this conversation in a positive way.
UPDATE (N): Brian Dohn has a story on this point program in the Daily News. Looks like UCLA devised this system after studying model from other schools:
UCLA also studied numerous point-system models, including those of Louisville, Arizona, Duke, Connecticut and Virginia, to determine how to structure its point system.
"We looked at all the different models to come up with a plan that really suits UCLA," senior associate athletic director Ross Bjork said. "We feel that we've achieved that."
The early comments in this thread seems positive. Would like to get more feedback on this. GO BRUINS.
