Wooden's Words An Inspiration Again

Ramona Shelburne, writing on ESPN's blog, has a great story on a group of Ugandan basketball coaches visiting UCLA to study the ideas of John Wooden. (If this has been mentioned before on BN, I missed it, so please excuse me.) Warning: You may swallow hard and blink back a few tears while reading it.

BN Request: Share Your Pictures With Coach For A Music Video Slideshow

Hey folks. Got a very cool proposal from bruin805 aka E. Corpuz (who is always providing us incredible pictures, videos from practices and UCLA events). bruin805 is looking to put together "a video slideshow of fans posing with Coach Wooden and put it on YouTube." As he wrote in an email: Because the man was so generous with his time, I'm sure that several of you out there have photos of yourselves or your kids with Coach. I'd like to take several of these and set them to music. If you'd like to be included, please email photos to bruin805@yahoo.com. The higher the resolution of the photo, the better. I can't promise I'll use all of them. It will depend on the quality of the picture and how many I get. I'll take photos until Friday. So if you have pictures with Coach Wooden you want to share, please send him an email. It sounds like an awesome, worthwhile project. GO BRUINS.

Al Scates on John Wooden

Article in the OC Register. The last part on Keith Erickson is priceless. We all miss you Coach.

In his final days, Coach asked for a shave so he’d have a fresh face for Nellie

A detail I missed from last few days: Wilkes said he recognized what he called "that little glint" in Wooden's pale blue eyes. He was in the room with Wooden's son, James, when Wooden asked to be shaved. "His son made the comment that when he got shaved he was getting ready to see Nellie," Wilkes said, referring to Wooden's late wife who died of cancer in 1985. GO BRUINS.

Coach, Henry Bibby and Southern Cal

Noticed this in the LA Times yesterday and it made me smile: When UCLA alumnus Henry Bibby became the coach at USC, Wooden counseled him over the phone but declined invitations to visit. "He would say, ‘Henry, you are one of my boys, but I will never go watch you coach over there,’ " Bibby said. "He was UCLA through and through."

Remembrances from Pauley

Yesterday, John Vallely, Marques Johnson, Keith Erickson, Jamaal Wilkes, Gary Cunningham, and Andy Hill sat down with the UCLA video team to share some wonderful words about their experiences with Coach.
