Bruin Bites: Hoops vs. Utah Game Day Edition

Next stop: Bloomington, Indiana. PLEASE! - Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

It's Saturday morning, which once meant we were gearing up for an exciting Saturday of UCLA football, but now, it's just another weekend day where we happen to have the listless "excitement" of enduring another hoops game thanks to Chianti Dan hiring a scumbag, our very own Hoosier Loser, to lead the UCLA men's hoops team.

Guess what?  Steve Alford, scumbag extraordinaire, will lead out the UCLA men's basketball team this afternoon at a mostly empty Pauley Pavilion to take on the Utes from Salt Lake City.  As I've said before, I really couldn't care less. But if you're one of the few Bruin fans who are able to somehow create the intellectual dishonesty that a victory for the players is not a victory for the sleazebag running the team, then you'll want to know that tip-off is at 2 p.m. PST and will be on the Pac-12 Network.  There will be a game thread here later this afternoon, but for now, let's go through the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse for this hoops day Saturday:

Alright folks, those are your various bits and pieces of news as we get ready for another thrilling basketball game against a lackluster Utah squad at Pauley Pavilion.  Fire away in the comment thread with your takes, additions, and notes about today's hoops game (or if you're like and could care less, what you'll be doing instead of wasting your time on scumbag named Steve Alford).
