We haven't done the roundup thing this week. Let's get back to it starting with a little baseball news. Post season awards keep coming in for the baseball team. This time its freshman Gabe Cohen who was named to the Freshman All American team:
Cohen has registered a .348 batting average with 10 home runs, 36 RBI, 34 runs and a .556 slugging percentage as a freshman this season. The Woodland Hills, Calif., resident captured Pac-10 Co-Newcomer of the Year honors and earned a selection on the All-Pac-10 team at the conclusion of the regular season.
Cohen has played in 54 of the Bruins' 59 games, has made 49 starts (all in right field), and has started in each of UCLA's last 41 games. His 10 home runs are the most by a freshman at UCLA since Wes Whisler belted 18 round-trippers his freshman season. In Cohen's first collegiate start (Feb. 4 vs. Winthrop), he finished 3-for-4 with a grand slam home run and a career-best five RBI.
Switching over to football Dohn had an interesting note on Bruin safety Chris Horton:
Lastly speaking of next year. The TV schedule for Dorrell's crew is out. Take a look:
The Sept. 1 opener at Stanford will kick off at 12:30 p.m. and will be televised nationally by Fox Sports Net. FSN will also televise UCLA's game on Oct. 27 at Washington State, beginning at 3:30 p.m.
UCLA's home opener against BYU will kick off at 3:30 p.m. and will be televised by Versus. FSN has sublicensed five Pac-10 games to Versus, which is available in over 70 million U.S. television homes.
That brings to eight the number of UCLA games that have been pre-selected for television.
ABC will televise the Oct. 6 home game against Notre Dame as part of its Saturday night package. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. The Bruins' game at Arizona on Nov. 3 will kickoff at 12:30 p.m. and will be televised by ABC.
The season finale against USC at the Coliseum on Dec. 1 will be televised nationally by ABC. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m.
UCLA's Sept. 15 game at Utah will be televised by Versus as part of that network's agreement with the Mountain West Conference, beginning at 3:00 p.m. MT/2:00 p.m. PT.
From my perspective again it doesn't really matter what channels I am watching our football team on. I couldn't care if Dorrell's team was playing on Lifetime network. None of it is going to matter until he lives up to our expectations and show us he is a legit coach. Until he does that I am not going to worry about what TV network I am watching UCLA football games on.
