Busing to the Sports Arena:
"Those fans who don't want to drive to the games can catch a ride on the bus service that has been arranged for all 19 of our home games. Fans will have the ability to park for free at Jackie Robinson Stadium, where the Bruin baseball team plays, and ride special buses to and from the basketball game for just $16 per person per game. The bus tickets should be purchased at least 48 hours prior to game day from the UCLA Ticket Office. We will be sending out more details about the bus plan as they become available. "
Not sure if I am late to the party on this, but it looks like the Morgan Center is attempting to be more open on the progress of Pauley construction. I'm sure the time-lapse feature will look pretty cool in a couple of months.
The Larry Brown Sports blog has a good read on the effort to save sideline seats for UCLA students (link above). ESPNLA also noted the involvement of this community and the Facebook group started by UCLA14.
No mention of the huge online movement uniting students and alums against Morgan Center anywhere in the LA Times, the Daily News and the Daily Bruin.
Once again UCLA Athletics has taken the wimpy route of deleting bumping off all comments imploring them to restore court side seating for students. They are trying desperately to hide those comments.
If your comments were deleted bumped off by Morgan Center, repost it here again. Do not relent. Once you post it there crosspost it in the comment threads here or here.

Update (BN Eds): Comments from BNers are already flooding UCLA Athletics' Facebook page. Please pile on by going to the link above.Update 2 (BN Eds): UCLA athletics just posted an update saying "Thanks for the feedback Bruins. Your comments have been forwarded to the appropriate individuals," and then they bumped all of your comments off their frontpage. This is a clear attempt to shove the comments and not paying any attention to it. If you have not shared your feedback yet, make sure you keep piling on. Don't stop.
