Non-Revenue End of the Year Roundup: Another Season, Still No Men's Titles for UCLA

We've finally reached the end of the 2011-12 athletic year for UCLA, with only a couple of our non-revenue sports still in action (baseball, men's golf, track-and-field), and so far, it's looking like another sub-par year for UCLA, with only the women's volleyball team able to bring a NCAA national title home to Westwood.

While the men's golf team is in a strong position (currently fourth after the first round of stroke play at the NCAA championship tournament, being played in Los Angeles) to challenge for UCLA's 109th NCAA national title, unless Savage's baseball squad can put together an improbable run deep into Omaha, it looks increasingly likely that another year will pass without UCLA bringing home a NCAA men's national title. As Nestor pointed out earlier this week, no men's program has won it all since 2008, which at first blush doesn't seem so bad, until you compare Chianti Dan's decade of mediocrity (5 men's titles) to the preceding decade (11 men's titles). Of course, when you look at the winning percentage of our men's programs, it's pretty sad the way UCLA has slid toward irrelevance under Chianti Dan's "leadership."

In any event, let's take a look at how our non-revenue programs performed during the 2011-12 athletic year:

Alright folks, that's how your non-revenue sports fared during the 2011-12 athletic year. Feel free to fire away with your thoughts, takes, or general thoughts about the overall decline of UCLA athletics under Chianti Dan's reign of error, in what is quickly shaping up to be a lost decade of mediocrity for UCLA athletics (all thanks to our moronic athletic "director").

Let's hope that men's golf or the baseball team can bring us a surprise and UCLA its 109th NCAA national title. Otherwise, we'll be forced to wait until the 2012-13 athletic year kicks off in the fall.
