A recap of UCLA related tweets over the past week.
I get the feeling our incoming football recruiting class is going to be Twitter GOLD for the next couple of years:
@calebbenenoch79 who said they don't wait til you get here— SIMON GOINES (@goines_simon) February 26, 2013
I can't wait.
They are also FOCUSED and ready for next season.
UCLA will be in Pasadena at the en of next season. Rose Bowl or National Championship what better way to do it than in our own house? #UCLA— Caleb Benenoch (@CalebBenenoch79) February 25, 2013
How ironic is it that the National championship next year is at our home field at UCLA? God has it all planned for us, home field advantage!— Asiantii Woulard (@AW_QB2) February 25, 2013
Where all my Bruin fans at??? Who ready for this upcoming season??!— Cameron Judge (@CameronJudge) February 22, 2013
Good day at UCLA!! So glad to be a Bruin!— Kylie Fitts (@K_Fitts93) February 23, 2013
Of course, this is probably due to Coach Jim Mora's influence. It's starting early.
@calebbenenoch79 you get your UCLA workout yet?— Asiantii Woulard (@AW_QB2) February 25, 2013
I just love this. I'm sure all coaches do this, but it feels like there is an emphasis to stay on top of the players and keep them accountable for their actions. Just like Datone Jones mentioned this week at the NFL Combine:
#UCLA DE Datone Jones on Jim Mora influence: "If you missed a workout or a practice, it felt like you couldn’t even eat training table ...— Michael Lev (@MichaelJLev) February 23, 2013
... because your brothers went to war and you didn’t. You didn’t really deserve to eat." #NFLCombine— Michael Lev (@MichaelJLev) February 23, 2013
When you get to the Combine, Coach Mora will just do a little thing for you like texting Rich Eisen and talking you up on the air:
It was fantastic, if you managed to catch it. Coach Mora was singing (texting?) the praises of Johnathan Franklin to Eisen and Mayock.
What an awesome coach. Wish I had the pleasure #CJM— Tony Dye (@TonyDye6) February 24, 2013
Of course, we do have a secret recruiting weapon:
Fun Fact: I silently committed to UCLA on my official. Yes it was that good. Then reaffirmed that after my Baylor visit— Caleb Benenoch (@CalebBenenoch79) February 22, 2013
I think seeing Jim Mora Sr. Sealed the deal #legend— Caleb Benenoch (@CalebBenenoch79) February 22, 2013
Our basketball players like each other too:
Never ever ever go to the barbershop with @kyleanderson5 you gonna be waiting 2 hrs for him to get done !— Jordan Adams (@jordanadams1231) February 23, 2013
Then Jordan Adam tweets about a game in which he scored 38:
In case you didn't watch the Southern Cal game, here is Kyle's new hair:
Back to short hair :/ instagr.am/p/WF_HHlJgIq/— Vinny Chase (@KyleAnderson5) February 24, 2013
Hey, Southern Cal: SCOREBOARD.
Some USC fans at the gym threw up their flags and flipped me off! #MOTIVATION— Kylie Fitts (@K_Fitts93) February 21, 2013
I wore my UCLA hat to the baseball game yesterday. A guy in a USC sweater looks at me and says "take that off" I reply "38-28"— Caleb Benenoch (@CalebBenenoch79) February 20, 2013
Teach them well, teach them young.
This is pretty awesome:
This too, but I haven't seen the commercial yet:
It's crazy seein @glennlove20 on this Adidas commercial haha I see you my man— Richard Brehaut (@Brehaut12) February 25, 2013
When did the "dorm" become home for you?
