Non-Revenue Roundup: More Women's Volleyball Notes, Women's Basketball Falters, Fall Baseball Recap

Obviously, the big news is that our women's volleyball team grabbed NCAA championship #108 for UCLA on Friday night, winning a tough fight against Illinois. It also highlighted something interesting: our in-game thread for last night's match against Illinois was rocking, getting way more commentary and generating a lot more excitement than the men's basketball program (which has just finished demolishing UC Davis). As I mentioned in yesterday's Bruin Bites, UCLA fans are desperate for a winner. Seriously, look at how pumped people got for Rachael Kidder and Co. last night.

Again, if there was anything that shows why Chancellor Gene Block and Vice Chancellor Rhea Turteltaub need to throw Chianti Dan out of Morgan Center (setting aside the increasing mountain of evidence that he is an incompetent, tone-deaf, self-centered bureaucrat without a clue), it's the passion that Bruins showed for the women's volleyball team last night. Could you imagine what it would be like if our football program could be a consistent winner? Can you imagine the crazy euphoria if the Bruins could find some gridiron glory in the Rose Bowl (instead of playing in the Rose Bowl)?

So, are you willing to commit to being a winner Gene? These Bruins want one desperately. And it would be so easy to make happen: fire Dan Guerrero, cut Bob Field out of the picture, sever Terry Donahue's input, and bring in a fresh face who is committed to turning UCLA into a winner on the football field.

With that, let's take a look at how our non-revenue sports fared this past week after the jump.

Alright folks, that's your non-revenue roundup for the past week. Outstanding week for the women's volleyball team, albeit it the same week that our women's basketball team showed it's not ready to take the next step to join the elite ranks in women's college hoops.

Fire away with your thoughts, takes, analysis, and opinions in the comment thread.
