If Dan is myopic and ignorant enough to think that slipping this in on the weekend is going to lessen the blow on Monday, he is absolutely wrong. And if the people answering the phones at the Chancellor's office think it was bad before, wait until they get a load of us now. Starting Monday at 8:30 am PST began calling 1-310-825-2151. You can start calling now Bruins, just for practice. Someone will be answering Monday morning. There is only one message: Fire Dan Guerrero Now. GO BRUINS. - BN Eds.
Mora is a joke, Guerrerror is a joke, Block is a joke, the coaching search was a joke, and the biggest joke of all right now in the minds of any rational observer is UCLA's athletic department itself.
News flash to Donut and any donor dumb enough to have given this a thumbs up: THIS GUY ISN'T PETE CARROLL. Carroll, regardless of whether he was the sleaziest cheater this side of SMU, was the singular exception to the rule we all know to be true. That unsuccessful NFL coaches don't suddenly know what they're doing in college. That they're more likely to fail more miserably in college than they did in the pros. ESPN writer (and Trojan honk) Arash Markazi nailed it: "Not every sixth round pick is Tom Brady."
I couldn't care less if this guy was allegedly considered for NFL DC jobs recently (which is the ultimate grasping at straws). He has alienated the two fanbases he coached for and delivered nothing other than progressively worse results. He is an NFL failure. Flat out. And on top of that, we once again go after the guy who no one else wants because he wants us! Why do we always take the easy way out??? We've taken the NFL failure of Mike Sherman, Mike Shula, Bill Callahan, and others and combined it with the desire to hire the most easily accessible candidate like Neuheisel, Dorrell, Toledo, Donahue, and so on. We've hired Shermheisel! It's absolutely disgusting and should not be tolerated by a single person who holds the success of UCLA athletics near and dear to their hearts.
Haven't spent a dime on donations, gear, or tickets since Neuheisel's first season and it will stay that way into the foreseeable future. I am EXTREMELY close to just washing my hands of all this and moving on from UCLA completely because I refuse to let my name be dragged through the mud by UCLA dragging its own name through mud. At this point, that donut scarfing buffoon is just spitting our faces and giving us the finger, and I'll be damned if I let myself be antagonized by a halfwit dumbshit of his ilk.
This isn't my most stylish or rationally written prose, I fully realize that. But if you can't tell, this has made me irate. We all want and deserve to see greatness for this school, and those tasked with making that happen seem hellbent on doing everything possible to make the polar opposite occur.
