    I love these rivalry pot shots. Alford is having a good recruiting year and Miller is firing back. This got a little run during ESPN hoops coverage this morning.

    In comments to The Daily Wildcats' Ezra Amacher, Miller alluded to the poor attendance at UCLA's home game against Cal Poly, which drew an announced crowd of 6,595. Pauley Pavilion seats 12,829.

    "I watched a couple of games last night like, 'Wow, that is amazing, who's not at the game,'" Miller said. "I know there's a lot of traffic. But you wonder if the season ticket was not printed the right way."

    "As a young kid, why would you ever want to come to a program or a place where nobody comes to the game?" Miller went on to say. "I mean, that puts a lot of pressure on their recruiting. For us, you come here, you have an opportunity to play in front of 14,500. You've got that pregame introduction. You have the ZonaZoo. It feels like college basketball."

    Good. UCLA (and all California school support) sucks and puts a damper on the Pac12. Sure, it's nice to take advantage of a dead gym at USC or Furd and get a road win, but UCLA is our North Carolina, our Kentucky, and draws 6,500.

    Still upset he swung and missed on TJ Leaf?

    But honestly, he is absolutely right. I live in LA for 2 years after school. UCLA's attendance is horrific. Especially because they have been so good historically. Honestly it just goes to show you how the fans are in Los Angeles. Good luck with 2 football teams. They will barely be able to keep one full.
