"We were about to give away the naming rights, the parking revenue rights, the concession rights, all those things, to a private university.... I won't stand for it," he told a homeowners group. Yaroslavsky and the rest of the commission rejected USC's bid then. Now, however, the panel has agreed to give USC everything it wanted — and then some. And they have secured relatively little for the public in return.LA Times June 1
So it’s impossible to imagine UCLA was expecting open arms. They had to be pleased if there were no torches and pitchforks.The Sporting News.

"My mind-set is that whenever I go on the field, I want Coach Fox to feel like he never has to worry about me," Moore said. "They know I work hard. They know I come in here and watch film even before we have our team meetings. They know I'm going to handle my business off the field. I want to prove myself to them that the guy they brought in is the guy they thought they were getting. And better. Every day is an interview. I'm doing this interview with you, but they don't have to be spoken words. When I come into this facility, they're watching."http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_23071622/broncos-rahim-moore-couldnt-wait-get-head-start
ON A bright note, kudos to the UCLA PR guy writing a statement of apology for basketball Coach Steve Alford for something Alford didn't say 11 years ago. Tell me Alford isn't going dolt on everyone again. If he's really apologizing — and keep in mind UCLA learned The Times was in Iowa to examine Alford's time there, including his stance on one of his players' being accused of sexual assault — why aren't his lips moving? Isn't the essence of an apology the remorse that's attached, and isn't that best delivered unrehearsed while sitting in front of people? This is someone who is going to lead people at UCLA?http://www.latimes.com/sports/baseball/mlb/angels/la-sp-simers-20130413,0,6869859.column?page=2
