    Short version - I'm sick of the NBA and this is my nickname at work. You already know the parrot story, so continuing the theme of birds hating me, I was in a bad car accident 2 years ago because of a goose. So the nickname stuck.

    Luckily, there is no ejector seat in a Toyota.

    Back on topic, for those of you that were worried, Anderson still plans on throwing his "I Love College! Athletes Party"

    In other UCLA news, here's a good analysis of their starting lineup. Gotta admit, their frontcourt is pretty damn scary.

    Apparently someone convinced Anderson to stop being stupid. He will no longer be attending the party he's hosting.

    How might this affect our recruiting? (and no jokes about hookers or parties or blow)

    UCLA being down in basketball (and playing an unappealing style under Ben Howland) really gave us some opportunities with LA talent, especially coupled with USC getting busted for Floyd paying OJ Mayo's bag man. Our 2011 class is proof of this. We'll see how we close 2012. There is definitely opportunity for us right now in the most fertile recruiting grounds of the Pac-12. Continuing problems at those programs help. We gotta keep winning, though.

    Interesting that you mention Howland's style of play. Gary Parrish of CBS wrote an article talking about the knocks on Howland when it comes to recruiting, including:

    I can see those complaints, but I think Arizona Desert Swarm had a great rebuttal about that saying that its' a little overblown. UCLA is still putting out quality NBA players every year (borderline superstars in some cases like Kevin Love!, Russell Westbrook and possibly Jrue Holiday when it's all said & done) and honestly they have a history that makes them one of the top 5 programs in the game.
