Bruin Bites: Howland "Loves" UCLA, Cravens Recruiting Notes, UCLA Moving Up the Rankings

This man claims to love UCLA. Let's see if his actions match his words as he goes into a season where he not only needs to get his team ramped up for a deep March Madness run (anything less will be unacceptable).

It's Thursday, which means we're tantalizing close to the weekend. It also means, at least for this time of the year, that March Madness is officially back (reminder: if you haven't filled out those brackets, get them done now, since you only have a few hours until March Madness gets underway without UCLA . . . again). While we should be spending this part of the year looking at each match-up our Bruins would face in the tournament on their way to (we would hope) at least an Elite Eight, if not Final Four, run, we're instead stuck watching Ben Howland's dumpster fire program flail around with no post-season play, getting snubbed by a second-rate joke tournament like the NIT.

So yeah, that sucks. Like I've said before, the legacy of UCLA basketball, built by Coach John R. Wooden, has been trampled, disrespected, and left to wither and die at the hands of Chianti Dan Guerrero and Ben Howland.

For that, there can only be one solution: FIRE DAN GUERRERO

And with that, let's turn to the bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse for this back-end part of the work week after the jump.

With that folks, those are your Bruin Bites for this Thursday morning. Sit tight and get ready for some March Madness without our UCLA Bruins, or as it's better known in these parts, March Sadness. The open watching thread should be up later this morning.

For now, fire away with your comments, thoughts, etc.

FIRE CHIANTI DAN GUERRERO
