    #9 As a UCLA alumnus, I am perplexed by the magnitude of the basketball teams failure with so much 5 star talent. Equally as disappointing is that we can’t say much to our USC rivals because we’re only one game better. The state of LA basketball is sad, all I can say there are 6 more months for high school football to start. And at that time we’ll hear the common crazy and unsubstantiated prognostication of fans which makes this website the best! Can’t wait to hear it.

    Odd that a school whose mascot is the FIGHTING FROGS is named Ribet, the sound made by frogs. In any event, after this season, they should be called the recruiting frogs.
