It's Monday morning, and we take some time to take a look at the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse, focusing in on a bizarre story about Baron Davis, some baseball pitching notes, and an interesting tidbit about the new official UCLA athletics website and who you really have to thank for it (clue: it's not Chianti Dan).

The clock is ticking down to when our UCLA Bruins will be returning to San Bernardino for fall football camp, and with it, the official return of college football for 2013.

Fortunately, there's a handful of interesting nuggets to keep you entertained while we wait for football to return. Let's 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 wider UCLA-iverse, as we creep closer to the return of college football. Fire away with your comments, thoughts, additions, and various opinions on all things UCLA in the comment thread.
