I wanted to take the time to thank the crew that runs Bruins Nation. You give students, alumni and fans a venue to vent, discuss, argue, provoke thought and support one another. The importance of your efforts has never been more evident than now, when UCLA athletics is in turmoil and our leadership has abandoned the values engrained in those 4 letters that, as Bruins, we all love. I am not a regular blogger here or a "front pager" - just a Bruin that is looking for answers, actions and excellence. I can say that I have found those three things in the threads here as well as some new friends along the way. Thank you, Bruins Nation, for allowing all of us to be heard.
