Neuheisel calls me (sort of)

Posted by Bob Condotta

So imagine my surprise the other day when I picked up my ringing phone, said hello, and heard "Hi, this is Rick Neuheisel.''

Considering the fact that I haven't talked to him in years, and the way his UW career ended, I'd almost have been less shocked to get an unsolicited call from Britney Spears.

Alas, I was simply getting one of the pre-recorded messages Neuheisel taped that the school is sending to boosters, alums and others on its official mailing list (so glad to know I can use this as proof in case anyone at UCLA ever says they didn't have my number when I request an interview).

Still, a little jarring at first, and I was too stunned to hear if he promised that UCLA would win "the Southwest championship.''

(You can find a link to the message on this blog post).

A few people jumped on this to wonder if there wasn't some sort of recruiting violation involved in case recruits happened to get any of these calls considering it's a dead period.

But as you can read here, coaches are allowed to call recruits once a week during dead periods.
