Bruin Bites: Recruiting Notes, Campus News, Football Projection, and Riley Stands Out

We're halfway through the work week, which means it's time for the mid-week wrap-up of the bits and pieces of news from all over the UCLA-iverse. Since we last checked in, we saluted Lauren Cheney and her teammates for their run in the women's World Cup, got information from the new Den leadership, got a key football transfer from Vandy, kept tabs on Neuheisel's continual recruiting roll, saw four current Bruins get named to football award watch lists, discussed how DC epitomizes the Ben Ball Warrior ethos, and discussed Chip Kelly, Willie Lyles, and the NCAA.

So without further ado, here are your bits and pieces of Bruin news from around the UCLA-iverse:

With that, those are your Bruin Bites for the middle of the work week.  Try not to work too hard and we'll see you all this weekend.  Fire away with your mid-week thoughts, nuggets of news, and opinions.
