Recap of UCLA's nail biting (unnecessary one) opening round win over Michigan State.
"UCLA shall drink from the jewel cup of victory" because "no warrior has ever outmached a bear shrouded in fog."
The UCLA Bruins - We've been buddies with the guys over at Bruins Nation for years and we always pull for the Bruins to do well when they're not playing Michigan. I know this will sound strange to some people, but I've always kinda thought of UCLA as a similar school to Michigan. Similar color schemes. Similar academic requirements and reputations. Similar obsessive compulsive fanbases. Their fans are a lot like Michigan fans and their students are too dissimilar either. They're a fellow high end public institution, and they've got one of the best school specific websites on the net. I doubt you'll ever find a better researched or better written site on the web that covers everything from Football to women's soccer as clearly and passionately as they do. You might also have heard of their success at playing basketball over the years. And speaking of which, this is a talented ball club. They're not world beaters by any stretch, but they're good enough to reach the Sweet 16. Cheer 'em on.
