A little perspective



According to espn, Larry Drew will be transferring from North Carolina; no reason was given for the decision.  The first thing that jumps out to me is the parallel between what we are going through and what UNC is now facing.  Both elite programs have seen a rough past few years: missing the tournament, high level recruits either not panning out or transferring.  The only difference is that they have a title in recent years and we have only gotten to the Final Four.

While I believe that Coach Howland should have us in the tournament every season and that UCLA should be contending for the PAC 10/12 every year, it is a bit sobering to see another great program struggle.  Even a guy like Roy Williams (who I think nearly every UCLA fan would approve of as a head coach) is going to "miss" on finding the right guys for his program every once in a while.  Hopefully both programs can rebuild themselves back to elite status (the college bball scene is SO much better when the bluebloods are great) so that the parallels are more along the lines of conference and national championships than transfers and NIT's.

Go Bruins!
