For a Bartow, It Only Takes a Half

Today, Bruins Coach Murray Bartow managed to lose a game at home where his team led by 17 at halftime. (And led by 22 in the second half.)

This runs in the family.

When Bruins Coach Gene Bartow was in charge, somehow I happened to be in Pauley when the Oregon Ducks were practicing. I distinctly remember Ducks Coach Dick Harter promising his squad they would beat UCLA. At that time, UCLA had only lost 2 games in history at Pauley. At first, I thought, "This guy is out of his mind." Then it occurred to me, "But Gene Bartow will be coaching."

When the UCLA-Oregon game was played, UCLA trailed at halftime -- by 20 points.

Even Steve Lavin couldn't manage that.
