The last year (prior to 2012) UCLA did not win a National Championship was....

....1994. Can you imagine that the combined power of Al Scates, Andy Banachowski, Sigi Schmid, Guy Baker, Sharon Backus, and Sue Enquist failed to net a national championship? I would KILL to have that talented a coaching staff again. Pathetic that we can barely attract any good coaches these days... DAN GUERRERO MUST GO!!!!

Best Hire of Dan Guerrero's Tenure (not being sarcastic).

Finally, Dan Guerrero made a hire that makes complete sense - an alumnus with one of the best track records in the sport.

Al Scates to retire after 2012

No release yet, but the UCLA athletics official twitter announced it. EDIT: Here's the release The main paragraph that sums it all up from the release: Scates will retire after 50 years of service at UCLA with a nation-leading Division I record of more than 1,200 victories. To date he has captured 19 NCAA championships, 21 overall national championships, 24 conference titles and compiled a legacy unmatched by few college coaches in any sport. In 49 seasons, Scates has coached 52 different first-team NCAA All-Americans, 44 U.S. National Team members, 27 Olympians, 26 USVBA All-Americans and seven collegiate Players of the Year. *** It's hard to overstate what Scates did in his career. I hope he gets some mainstream publicity in his final season next year and that he goes out a winner to give him a nice round number of 20 NCAA championships.

A really cool post from AOL's John Walters on Andy Banachowski and Al Scates, two of our legends from Westwood.
