Bruin Bites: Dan Guerrero, Morgan Center, UCLA Total Fail Edition

<strong>TOTAL FAIL</strong>

The title pretty much says it all, doesn't it?  This has to be one of the worst weekends in recent UCLA history.  On Friday, Howland's overweight, slow, lazy, entitled squad came out flat and uninspired against a vastly inferior (in terms of talent) Loyola Marymount squad, and got promptly beat-down 58-69 at the decrepit Sports Arena, marking the first time the Lions beat the Bruins since World War II.  Not to be out-done, Rick took his hapless team to Salt Lake City, where the Bruins embarrassed themselves with stupid penalties and lazy, unimaginative play, leading to a 31-6 Utah victory.

Now, any weekend where both UCLA's football and basketball team is a bad weekend.  But on this weekend, it wasn't just the losses, but the manner in which UCLA lost both games, and the simple fact that UCLA, in both games, had vastly superior talent, and both games were games in which the Bruins should have won.  Instead, they didn't just lose, they got spanked.

Naturally, the little Neuheisel apologists and their Neub mindset have gone quiet this weekend.  Where are all of you losers now?  Want to come back and sing some more sunshine-and-rainbows bulls**t about how Rick is "turning the corner"?

From the weak, sub-par arena that UCLA has to play it's "home" games in, to the garbage football program we are subjected to every Saturday, to the idiotic entitlement mindset that Morgan Center has developed (and is shown through the idiotic actions of players on both squads), this weekend has been an illustration of why Dan Guerrero must be fired as part of wholesale regime change in Westwood.

For the third time, I've had to write a "Rick and Dan fail" edition for Bruin Bites (prior two are here and here).  And it's time to repeat what I said prior to the Utah game:

So, please, everyone, let's take a moment to stop and think.  When have both of our two major revenue programs been as much of a joke as they have been the past three years?  When have we had a run, like these past three years, where both UCLA football and basketball were national punchlines?

We're a joke.  Our football team is a joke.  We went on national television and got absolutely stomped by an Arizona program that was 1-5 and without a real head coach.  They had a defensive coordinator with zero head coaching experience. And they smoked us.  Our basketball team is a joke.  We don't have the athletes to play "Ben Ball" defense and we haven't been relevant since the true Ben Ball Warriors (DC, LRMAM, LMR, KL, etc.).  These current UCLA basketball players don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as those guys.

It's now time to focus on the root of UCLA's problems: the tone-deaf, ineffectual chump running Morgan Center. As we've said on BN (and as many of you, on Facebook, on MexiBruin's petition, and other places across the social media landscape), nothing short of wholesale regime change will suffice.


With that, let's turn to the Sunday afternoon edition of the bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse after the jump:

Alright folks, that's your Bruin Bites round-up of news from around the UCLA-iverse. Sad way to end a terrible weekend for UCLA's big two sports, further highlighting the need for WHOLESALE REGIME CHANGE IN WESTWOOD, STARTING WITH DAN GUERRERO.
