Coach Mora met with LA's traditional media reporters after tonight's game and he was promptly assaulted by a childish ambush from LA Times "columnist" TJ Simers. WATCH (video via BruinSportsReport.com):
There is not a lot to say about Simers childish attacks on Mora. This is a guy who hates himself, his job and has no interest in actual game, except to write ridiculous columns that often has nothing to do with the game but everything to do with bringing attention to himself.
Simers' shtick is well known around this part and it's not a surprise to anyone here. The question remains why our athletic department's media relations folks continue to give this guy access to our events at the Rose Bowl and at Morgan Center. One would think UCLA would show some courage in protecting it's head coach. Instead Chianti and his incompetent staff are once again passively sitting by while the program is under attack.
