If anyone thought the total disgust at the state of UCLA major revenue programs were limited to few online outlets, today's LTE section in the LAT should erase that doubt. Now, I don't really care much for the LTE section of the LAT. The letters published in this section are not exactly full of substance. The quality of the comments in this section is closer to any generic message board, than the comments in a community like this.
Still when the letters are overwhelming negative in direction towards the two major programs, it spells trouble for the people in charge of the major revenue program. Case in point, take a look at this blast from Paul Jeong from Beamont, pre-emptively eviscerating Neubian talkinpoint of the value of a 7-6 record:
If UCLA football's current mediocre season goes as expected, the Bruins will beat Colorado, lose to USC, then meet a fellow mediocre team in a mediocre bowl. There is a mediocre chance that they will win that bowl game, ending up with a mediocre 7-6 record.
There is a saying, "Good is the enemy of the great." In UCLA football's case, mediocrity is the enemy of the good.
Pretty good shot there.
Read through the link to read other notes (including shots against Ben Howland) and this one against Dan Guerrero:
Dan Guerrero has done a great job finding coaches for the Bruins' water polo, volleyball, soccer and softball teams. If only he could find good coaches in football and basketball. While he's at it maybe he could find a new job for himself.
This will only get worse for Morgan Center, until there is a wholesale regime change in Westwood.
