Bruin Bites: Malcolm Jones on Returning, Non-Revenue Roundup, Howland to Rutgers?

Harry How

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 Malcolm Jones' return to the football team, some non-revenue sports action, and rumor that former UCLA basketball coach Ben Howland is interested in taking the now-vacant Rutgers job.

It's Monday morning and later this evening, the NCAA basketball tournament will come to an end, but once again, our Bruins will not be featuring and will not be chasing after the elusive twelfth national title banner. Instead, Rick Pitino's Louisville Cardinals will take on John Beilein's Michigan Wolverines, with one of the two men adding a national championship to their already impressive resumes. Meanwhile, our Bruins trudge along with Steve Alford (mediocre coaching record, terrible record of handling athlete scandals), having never taken a true run at top-tier candidates like Shaka Smart or Rick Pitino, and not even making an honest run at Wichita State's Gregg Marshall. While one would assume that you'd fire Ben Howland only if you had an upgrade lined up, you'd be vastly underestimating Dan Guerrero's ability to be completely brain-dead.

So, while we get ready to watch the UCLA of the Midwest Michigan take on the school whose coach we should have at least interviewed Louisville, let's try to shift our focus away from college basketball (because of how depressing it is for UCLA fans right now) and take a look at the other 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, as we get ready to watch a NCAA basketball title game without the Blue and Gold of Westwood.
