It's December, which means it's time for our fall sports to be in the middle of post-season play. Well, unless you're the women's soccer team, which disappointingly lost to inferior competition early in the NCAA tournament. Or, the football team: oh wait, Chianti Dan got his back-door waiver approved, so UCLA will get the "honor" of playing in another joke bowl game (read: the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl) against fellow no-coach wonders the Fighting Illini of Illinois, being played at AT&T Park in San Francisco (bonus for Dan: Napa is just a short drive away!).

Since the football head coaching search continues to be an epic joke and a total fail by Chianti Dan, marked by stupid missteps that demonstrate no clue when it comes to college football, let's take a look at how our non-revenue sports fared this past week. After all, we need something to distract us from Chianti Dan's bumbling stupidity.

Alright folks, that's your non-revenue roundup for the past week. Good week for the men's soccer and women's volleyball teams, who each got one step closer to bringing blue-and-gold title banner #108 back to Westwood. Unfortunately, the bitter taste of defeat to U$C in the national title game will linger for some time, but hopefully the men's water polo team can use it as drive to re-claim the title next season.

But, despite some good results this week, given the abject disappointment we're seeing in some programs (women's soccer, for example), we have to keep our eye on the ultimate prize to do right by our student athletes: wholesale regime change in Westwood, meaning Dan Guerrero must be fired.
