Elections, basketball, birthdays, UCLA and USC wagers have been made. Read on for details.
So after our Twitter incident last week, we move on to the next set of UCLA tweets.
Our athletes exercised their right to vote:
I voted! Have you? #Election2012— Kai Forbath (@KaiForbath) November 6, 2012
I sent in my absentee ballot today! Finally my opinion matters! #Obama12 baby!!— Justin Dior Combs (@JDior_) November 6, 2012
Colorado (and Washington) legalized marijuana.
Korey Bosworth (@KoreyBosworth) November 7, 2012
By the way, still banned by the NCAA, so sorry kiddos.
Brendan Ayandabejo and Chris Kluwe both fought for marriage equality in their states... and won.
My next mission is to get marriage equality passes in Florida and California!!!— Brendon Ayanbadejo (@brendon310) November 7, 2012
The measure to define marriage as a between a man and woman failed in Minnesota.
And that'll do it. Thank you everyone for all your support. Still a long road ahead, but we're now the first state to beat this thing. #gj— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) November 7, 2012
Congratulations to both Kluwe and Ayandabejo for standing up and fighting for what they believe.
Moving onto football, Coach Mora has many fans.
Just listened to Coach Mora's rant about twitter scum. He is my hero. Holy cow! Wish I had some eligibility and a left leg..— Nick Ekbatani (@nickekbatani) November 10, 2012
Devin Fuller knows what he has to do:
lift, practice, school, homework, sleep... wake up and do it again everyday for 4 years to get what i dream of— Devin Fuller (@Devin7Fuller) November 8, 2012
We played a football game in the cold.
Walkin around guy said, "you guys ready for the cold? Did you bring the foot warmers." Na forgot those but brought a can of whoop a$$.— J B 6 Ohhhh!! (@JBaca60) November 10, 2012
And they were happy to get the heck out of there when they were done:
You have no idea how much you miss home when it's 130 and 20 degrees...get me back to Westwood!— Jerry Neuheisel (@jerryneuheisel) November 11, 2012
You figure the game ended at 11pm, so after showers, post game media talks, they probably got on the bus at 12am. Then they had to drive to Boise (I believe) and then get on the plane back to LA. A loooong day for our athletes.
4:20 am and still not in my bed..— Devin Fuller (@Devin7Fuller) November 11, 2012
7:30pm start times should not happen at WSU.
Oh and it's Beat SC week. Our recruits know.
My bruins taking down the Trojans this weekend!!! #8CLAP— Erik Bunte (@BUNTE73) November 12, 2012
Wagers have been made.
Made a bet with @mattkalil today on U$C/UCLA game. Loser has to do pushups equal to the winning team's score, at midfield after the game.— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) November 12, 2012
IF YOU ARE AT THE GAME, PLEASE TAKE VIDEO:
The pushups will be taking place at the Rose Bowl, we'll both be there for the game. Should be fun.— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) November 12, 2012
Friends and family I haven't spoken to in months are hitting me up asking for tickets this weekend. Why now all of a sudden?— Dietrich Riley(@DietrichRiley) November 13, 2012
The routine that Mora wants his players to follow:
Southern cal study, midterm study, bed! #thisweeksroutine— Dalton Hilliard (@dhills19) November 13, 2012
Southern Cal. Southern Cal. Southern Cal. It's rubbing off on the players.
Moving on to basketball, the team appreciates the camp outs:
Its been people camping out since 8am this morning to get tickets to our game tommoroowthats crazy #GoBruwins— Jordan Adams (@jordanadams1231) November 8, 2012
As does the coach:
Sooren is a walk on, and before his first UCLA game:
Today is the best day of my life— Sooren Derboghosian (@Sooren44) November 9, 2012
My eyes are watering. It must be dusty around here. Sniffle.
Congratulations to the UCLA Men's Soccer Team, Pac-12 Champs!
@uclamsoccer Congrats on winning the PAC!! Way to represent UCLA and the Bruin Nation!— Johnathan Franklin (@JFrank2308) November 10, 2012
And in tennis:
Congrats to Bruin sophomore Robin Anderson for capturing National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships singles title & sportsmanship award!— UCLA Men's Tennis (@uclatennis) November 11, 2012
The life of a professional football player:
