Guerrero’s Pre-Emptive Excuse v. Trojans: a "13-mile trek across town"!

Not sure how many here are still reading Dan Guerrero's worthless "Word from Westwood." As discussed numerous times here this ridiculous web product laughably peddled as a "blog" is nothing more than a stale buereacratic newsletter. Nevertheless, it is interesting to keep an eye on it just to get a sense of myopia and delusions going through Chianti-what's wrong with Spaulding-Dan's head.

Here is the main laugh paragraph of the week. Dan pre-emptively seem to set up an excuse for our next game by mentioning a "13 mile trek" to play Southern Cal:

After sweeping the Arizona schools last week at the Honda Center to even their Pac-12 Conference record at 2-2, Ben Howland and his squad will now make the 13-mile trek across town to face USC at the Galen Center next Sunday evening. It will be the Bruins' only game of the weekend and the first on the road since opening the season in the Bay Area - road victories will be the key to a successful conference season, and we will be seeking our first of the season.

Hmm, I wonder how the heck will Dan explain why UCLA will make the same "trek" to play Southern Cal for our "home game" at the Garbage Arena next to their campus? You'd think if Guerrero and his cohorts had any sense of advance logistics, they'd consider playing that game at Honda Arena or another location in Southern California at least making sure the Trojans are not as close as they are to the Garbage Arena. It's a good thing that the Trogan basketball program is a total joke and there should be no excuses any way for not sweeping those clowns this season.

Chianti also made excuses for screwing up the Wooden Classic:

As I mentioned in last week's blog, the Thursday night game against Arizona last week was not only a Pac-12 Conference game, but also doubled as the Wooden Classic. Due to some unique circumstances particular to this season, the Wooden Classic and a conference game were combined into one. You can be assured that the Wooden Classic will not feature a conference match-up in the future.

We are presently working diligently with the new owner of the Wooden Classic and the Wooden Family representatives at IMG to develop a model for future Classic games. The Pac-12 will also be involved since game broadcast rights for all conference schools fall under its auspices. I will provide you with an update as things progress over the coming months ...

Oh we can hardly wait. Notice how he provides nothing detailed about "unique circumstances." There is no cogent explanation for why this has to be so "complicated" for Dan.

I guess we should be thankful he didn't put a desperate call out to Purdue's AD and ask him if we could have a "neutral court" game against the Boilermakers in Indianapolis!

Once again nothing but cluster-you know what on all fronts. If you have to stomach to read rest of the BS you can go here.
