Dedicated to the HATRED of all things trOJan


It’s anything but a Three Dog Night.

UCLA Baseball is ranked #1 in the Nation, Bruin Gymnasts are seeded #1 in the Nationals, and Michael Roll is honored as #1 of the ’09 – ’10 Basketball Bruins

For the first time in 13 years, the UCLA Baseball team is ranked #1 during a season.  After starting the season 22-0, the Bruins are now 26-3, and sitting on top of both the Baseball America and Yahoo/Rivals  polls.  The Bruins have been to the College World Series before, but they’ve yet to win a game there.

Even as the Country’s #1 team, the Bruins are not in first place in the Pac-10.  At 4-2, they trail ASU and Cal, who are also at .667, but at 6-3, a half-game ahead of UCLA.  In LAST place in the Conference?  That would be Chad Krueter’s 2-7 u$c trojans.

The trojans are not in last place in the Conference in Women’s Gymnastics, because they don’t have a team.  Luckily, the Bruins still have a WOMEN’S Gymnastics team, and that team is getting ready to compete for their 6th National Championship.  The Bruins are the TOP SEED in the 12-team Finals, being held in Florida in 9 days.  UCLA got the #1 Seed even though they are ranked #3 in the Country, because of their superior score totals during the Regional events.

And even though ’09 – ’10 was far from a Perfect 10 for the UCLA Men’s Basketball Team, there definitely was a clear-cut MVP.  That Player is Michael Roll, and he was recognized as such at the Awards Banquet on Monday Night.  Roll was not only presented with the John Wooden Award, as the team’s Most Valuable Player, but he also won a second award, for leading the team in Assists.

Roll was the obvious choice, but if you had to vote for 2nd and 3nd place, then Tyler Honeycutt and Reeves Nelson would be the other vote-getters, and those two future stars shared the award for Freshmen of the Year.  Honeycutt also won the Rebounding award, and Nikola Dragovic took home the Free Throw Shooting honor.  Malcolm Lee won for Defense and for Team Play, and finally, Mustafa Abdul-Hamid won both the Most Inspirational and Academic awards.

And speaking of inspiration, here are 10 more UCLA Cheer photos.  In the first one they are wearing one’s, and the others are one-shots.  As always:  Click to enlarge, and/or mouse over for captions.  Today’s captions all have a “one” in them.

Dressed to the ones.

    USC=soooo horrible
    UCLA=sooo awesome

    …glad that’s settled.

    [T-H’s Note: Here’s the difference: If there were a “,” Bruin fans wouldn’t waste their time going there and SARCASTICALLY writing in to it. They would just let the trojans have their fun in peace. But classless trojans CAN’T TAKE THE HEAT, and can’t take a joke, so they feel compelled to infest a Bruin site, to write in and whine, bitch, and moan. Thanks for proving the point, over and over again.]
