Headlines in the Twitterverse: Will the UCLA-Gonzaga Rematch Produce Another Crying Game?

As the Bruins prepare to face Gonzaga in a Sweet Sixteen rematch, let's check in with the Bruin Twitterverse.

Spring is in the air, and with spring comes spring football. With UCLA spring football practice starting in less than a week--on Tuesday at 7AM, to be precise--our football program got some great news.

BOOM!

But the good news didn't end there.

BOOM!

A couple of future Bruins rolled out the welcome mats.

Meanwhile, a former UCLA football star has been busy with pre-draft "fun."

In case you missed it, we have a special guest training at UCLA.

Why did PacMan choose UCLA? A picture is worth a thousand words.

There are so many things that make UCLA a special place. A tradition of excellence is one of them.

Speaking of excellence,

We need to remember that the life of a student-athlete isn't easy. Just ask Elise Zappia and Madie Smith who had to travel across several time zones to play volleyball at Waikiki Beach this past weekend. What did they get for their effort?

Elise and Madie aren't the only representatives of UCLA who had a busy weekend. The guy in charge is enthusiastic in his work.

It's all about basketball now, and the NBA is trying to ride the wave of NCAA tournament excitement to promote the NBA playoffs. Who better to use for that than a former Bruin?

Speaking of the NBA, did you hear that David Wear is now with the Sacramento Kings?

Make it 6 (!!) when NP4 is drafted.

David's old coach, the guy responsible for our last Final Four appearance and our most recent first-place finish in the Pac-12 has a new job.

Best of luck to Coach Howland.

Meanwhile Steve Alford is preparing the Bruins for their biggest game of the season.

The Bruins may not be favored, but at least one "expert" likes their chances.

The Bruins have to improve upon their early season performance against Gonzaga. You have to admire Kevon Looney's honesty about it.

There's been a lot of talk this week about our sweet Sweet Sixteen comeback against the Gonzaga Bulldogs in 2006.

His memory of the details of the game may not be perfect, but LRMAM remembers the important stuff.

As our 2006 Final Four team demonstrated against Adam Morrison and the Zags, it's all about focus, determination, and teamwork.

Go Bruins!

Who really runs LA? This seems to be a pretty definitive answer.

(If you don't understand any of that, ask Fox.)

I've saved the best for last. In terms of "getting it," it doesn't get any better than this:

Dream big, Bruins!
