Time for our stroll around the BN walk and we will start with J’Mison Morgan. As I said last night before everyone get’s overly excited keep in mind that we have not seen any confirmed report yet that indicates that LSU has granted his request for a release. From the good guys over at Bruin Basketball Report:
LSU is not obligated to release Morgan from his commitment. If LSU does not grant his release, Morgan would have to sit out a year before transferring to another school to play basketball.
Anyway, back in Westwood the baseball team will be looking to rebound tonight in what the Daily Bruin has been calling a "disappointing" and "inconsistent" season:
A chance to turn around what thus far has been a disappointing season mired in inconsistency.
A chance to achieve a season-defining series win at home against No. 4 Arizona State, one that could have provided the spark needed to push the Bruins to a postseason berth.
Yet, the chance was erased with two late-game collapses, costing the Bruins a potential series win against Arizona State in disappointing fashion.
Tonight, the Bruins (24-20, 7-8 Pac-10) continue a stretch of games that could potentially make or break their season as they play against the streaking No. 8 San Diego Toreros (37-13, 15-3 West Coast Conference) at newly named Steele Field at Jackie Robinson Stadium.
Following tonight’s game against San Diego, the Bruins travel to face two-time defending national champion Oregon State this weekend. They then travel to play No. 13 UC Irvine next Tuesday, host Washington State in two weeks, and finish the season on the road against No. 12 Cal State Fullerton and No. 16 California.
Meanwhile, over at the football front Ben Olson is having his surgery today. Good luck to Big Ben.
Staying with football, CPBruinFan over at Bruin Roar, has posted capsule reports on each of our opponents spring practices. Here is CPB’s lowdown on the Vols’ spring practice:
There will be more of an emphasis on the running game this time around and the Volunteers have a good one in Arian Foster. The Vols return all five offensive line starters from last season and they will provide a big front for Foster, who's closing in on Tennessee's all-time rushing record.
Lastly, an additional note re. our scheduled site upgrade, which is coming on Thursday. Our tech friends at SBN tells us that BN will be migrating to the new site late Thursday night, and if all goes well will be live the next morning (Friday, May 9 in our case). We are looking forward to playing with the new features in SBN.
