"In my opinion, that sucked. What's that?  Playoffs?! Don't talk about playoffs! You kiddin' me?!  Playoffs?! I just hope we can win a game!"

Odd how that fits UCLA basketball this season.

So our "mighty" Bruins (read: Ben Howland and Chianti Dan's dumpster fire basketball program) are not only technically in post-season "playoffs" (if this pathetic conference tournament can even be called that) but have advanced past the first round. Well, sort of: struggling to beat a pitiful U$C squad is hardly something to be proud of. But, despite our poor showing in this pathetically lackluster season, marred by scandal thanks to Ben and Chianti Dan, there are still Howlers out there clamoring that we "still have a shot" and that everything will be okay next year "when Shabazz comes."

LOL. So yeah, I thought Jim Mora Sr. was the right way to start this off. So while the writing is on the wall and we watch Ben flail away in what should be the final death spiral of the Ben Howland era at UCLA (not to mention the final death spiral of the laughably pathetic and failed Chianti Dan Guerrero era), we can take a few minutes to take a quick look at the various bits and pieces of news floating around from the wider UCLA-iverse:

Alright folks, those are your bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse. Fire away in the comment threads with your thoughts, additions, and other interesting UCLA-related notes.
