Bruin Bites: Shell at Practice, XSF Bulking Up, Non-Revenue Roundup

USA TODAY Sports

It's Monday morning, which means it's time to take a look at the various bits and pieces of information from around the UCLA-iverse, focusing in on Pitt transfer running back Rushel Shell at Spaulding, XSF bulking up and hitting the weight room, and some non-revenue sports action from the weekend.

It's Monday morning, which means it's back to the grind, both for all of us returning to work, but also for our football team, which will get working at Spaulding later today (spring practice having transitioned to three-per-week). If you can make it to Spaulding, you should, since football is the one island of comfort available to UCLA fans right now: we continue to wait to see if Gene Block intends on holding Dan Guerrero accountable for the complete clown-show surrounding our basketball program, with rape-victim advocacy groups blasting Alford's way-too-late show of contrition, with no one at Murphy Hall willing to ask Chianti Dan the tough questions surrounding this hiring "process."

In any event, let's turn away from the continued failure of our chancellor to guide UCLA to its high standards (you would have to think that a great Bruin like Jackie Robinson, the focus of our adoration this past week, would be rolling in his grave to see his alma mater accept mediocrity and failure), and take a look at the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse:

Alright folks, those are your various bits and pieces of news from around the broader UCLA-iverse. Fire away in the comment thread with your thoughts, additions, and takes.
