I am one of many Bruins in this community, and others, who enjoys and appreciates Ralph Irvin's Football Fridays on the official website. I think that Ralph does a great job, adding the human element to our team and its players, and the players seem to enjoy the interviews (ex. Jerry Neuheisel's infamous photobombing).
With that being said, as Menelaus noted earlier, despite the UCLA football cultural change that is currently underway during the Jim Mora era, the team is still affected by incompetent Morgan Center employees.
Take a look at the still photo above - any UCLA football fan regardless of age, who has watched a game this year, will tell you that Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks, though they are both outstanding playmakers on D and play the same position, look nothing alike. Kendricks has the hair and more experience. Barr made the switch to LB earlier this year and doesn't have the locks that Kendricks has. Even a brief glance at the UCLA football roster will show that the two look nothing alike.
Making an honest mistake like not understanding proper protocol is one thing, but working for the Morgan Center and mistaking two of our very good linebackers is surely a sign of a late Thursday night partying on Gayley/Landfair or downright incompetence at this point of the season. At this point, with the head honcho of Morgan Center going on a booze cruise, I wouldn't be surprised if someone had had a few before editing this video.
In the clip, Irvin clearly notes that "we'll hear from Cassius Marsh and Anthony Barr." However, whoever edited the video, failed to distinguish the two from each other before posting the video to the official website. It's as if Gene Block himself, got off of his throne and edited the video.
Although we are enjoying what is hopefully a renaissance for UCLA football in Westwood, there is still a lot to be done, folks. We can't overlook the fact that despite Jim Mora stepping up and saying/doing the right things so far, let's remember that Dan Guerrero "fell" into this hire by being spurned by both Chris Petersen and Kevin Sumlin and this caption mishap, though trivial, is just another Morgan Center Fail that is on Dan Guerrero. You may think that things are good now, but things can be even better with a chancellor who's a real Bruin and an Athletic Director who's actually an Athletic Director.
GO BRUINS! DUMP DAN!
