Bruin Bites: Faldermeyer Shines, ATV on the Rivalry, Barry Sanders Jr. Still Undecided, and Joe Ross to San Diego?

It's been a busy week around Bruins Nation since we last checked in for the bi-weekly Bruin Bites: DCBruins broke down the "UCLA factor" and how it played into the NBA Draft and our Bruins' performance on the next level, but unfortunately, it didn't seem to help either Tyler Honeycutt or Malcolm Lee, as we watched them both slip into the second round of this year's NBA Draft.  While those two Bruins were preparing for the NBA, two former Bruin hoopsters returned to campus to finish their degrees: King Ed and B. Diddy returned to Westwood to finish classes. On the flip side, after Stan Hasiak's disappointing dismissal from Westwood for academic reasons, Nestor broke down the outlook for our offensive line this upcoming season.  The work week closed out with Neuheisel catching fire, bringing in three commitments for football's Class of 2012.  We've also been having a bit of fun, tracking the SBN conference re-draft, which has seen UCLA get more respect from the outside world than from the chumps at Morgan Center.  Finally, we've been keeping tabs on Patrick Cantlay's sizzling second round at the Travelers Championship (but subsequent concession of the lead during the third round).

But here we are at the end of the weekend, so it's again time to bring you the little bits and pieces from around the UCLA-iverse:

And those are your Bruin Bites for the end of the weekend.  Get out and enjoy the weekend sun if you haven't already.
