It's been an interesting last few days: the BCS finally pulled the trigger and stripped the Southern Cal Cheaters of their tainted 2004-05 BCS national title, as well as vacating their participation in Texas' spectacular win over U$C in the 2005-06 title game. Ben Howland hired a new assistant coach by bringing Korey McCray, a well-known AAU coach who is widely expected to bring the Bruins the national recruiting ability they have been sorely lacking in recent years. Speaking of basketball, we've also had some interesting commentary on the "UCLA factor" relating to UCLA's recent NBA players.

Anyway, it's been an interesting start to the week and if you're reading this, we're almost halfway to the weekend.  So here's your Hump Day bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse:

Ending on that high note about our wonderful incoming Bruins, those are your Bruin Bites for the middle of this work week.  Keep chuggin' away and we'll see you with more this weekend.
