Are you going to the National Signing Day Event?

On Thursday, I received an email from the Wooden Athletic Fund inviting me to UCLA's 2012 National Signing Day Reception and Announcement on campus.

The event includes a Football Coaching Staff Meet & Greet Reception followed by a Signing Day Reception and Announcement.

Personally, I am amazed that the folks at the Wooden Athletic Fund still have me on their mailing list after my response to their last "invitation" to become one fo the next 1500 members, but they did, probably, because I am still a football season ticket holder (at least until renewal time this year).

Considering that "the event is FREE and open to all Wooden Athletic Fund members and Football Season Ticket Holders", I want to encourage everyone here to attend.


Because this gives us an opportunity to be heard! That's why!

What would Coach Mora's reaction be if, at a relatively small, intimate greeting, he is POLITELY asked 50 or 100 times if he intends to fix the UCLA Stripe on our uniforms? Or about any of the whole host of issues we have with the program?

Now, don't get me wrong. I am not be necessarily suggesting we publicly embarass the university on Signing Day.

I do, however, want to encourage everyone to take advantage of an opportunity UCLA is giving us to meet with the new coaching staff and have our voices heard.

We've been talking for months about how we want out voices heard and how we would like to see things changed.

Well, now there is an opportunity to do just that. If Chancellor Block decides to show up, I will be sure to let him know how I feel about the overall direction of the athletic department.

But, the highlight of the evening for me will occur after the folks from the Wooden Athletic Fund try to get me to join. Of course, I will inform them that I will not be contributing one cent to the university until Chianti Dan is replaced.
