Coach Mora is fielding questions on twitter right now, and will post replies tomorrow
Doing another #askUCLACoachMora. Let's talk Spring Ball before Saturdays final Spring workout. Get Q's in by Thurs and we will post Friday.— Jim Mora (@UCLACoachMora) April 22, 2013
For those of you with twitter, address your questions to @UCLACoachMora.
Mora did this before and it was a great success. He recorded video reading the questions and then answering them, and posted those videos back via his twitter. It showed how much Mora values interaction with his fan base and his understanding of the value of open communication.
Mora tweeted this before the last Q & A session:
I know there are questions on injuries, penalty issues, why we struggled vs. Baylor...ask away, nothing is off limits. #askUCLACoachMora— Jim Mora (@UCLACoachMora) April 22, 2013
Of course, our tonedeaf and cheapskate apathetic director has no awareness of this kind of openness or accountability. Remember his "Ask Dan" segment in his newsletter? Right. Hahahaha.
But this is about Coach Mora right now, so hit him up tomorrow with your questions about UCLA Football, the NFL Draft, his charitable Count On Me Foundation, our players, or anything on your mind. Remember he is not likely to read/answer anything overtly disrespectful with regard to Morgan Center, so if you want to ask about that, keep it professional.
I know that coaches are ultimately defined by wins and losses, and it will be the same for Coach Mora too. But in the meantime, he sure seems to be doing all of the rest of the things necessary to establish himself as the kind of coach we want running our program. From talking up all of our seniors in the NFL draft, to refusing to talk about Southern Cal (and always calling them Southern Cal), to paying bus fare for the students when our overpaid and underspending AD won't, to pushing for improvements in facilities and equipment, to making himself personally available to students, alums and fans like this, Coach Mora is doing the right things.
Coach Mora wants 50,000 fans at the Rose Bowl on Saturday for the Spring Game. Let's make that happen.
Get your questions in today to @UCLACoachMora
