    To me, UCLA’s advantage is that they are one of the few schools west of the Mississippi with any name recognition.

    According to his tweets, a lot of restaurants were offering Rick free food if he stayed. Lol.

    They have name recognition with us, because we are old. Oregon probably has better name recognition with kids today than UCLA does.

    Sorry, I stand corrected. With people who are really into sports (like most BGPers) UCLA is a brand name that we all know. Today's players don't know their history, Oregon is probably better known.

    If UCLA can't hire Tennessee's coach it's time to give up or hire Pitino.

    Rothstein says Barnes is staying put. Back to Mick being the last coach in the bar near closing time.

    Well since Barnes isn't going, I guess we can close this one.
