More on UCLA's ditch day

Posted by Bob Condotta

Here's an interesting take on the aftermath of UCLA's "Ditch Day'' from the LA Times.

I'd never heard of this before this year, though the stories say it's been going on since about 1980 or so. Maybe people wrote about it before but it never got this much attention, I don't know.

For the record, UW doesn't have anything like this and I've never heard of the Huskies having anything like this --- not the kind of thing Jim Owens or Don James would have ever allowed happen.

The stunt not only didn't go over well with new coach Rick Neuheisel and a lot of others there to watch practice, but also with their fellow students. Here's an editorial from the school paper condemning the tradition.

Finally, Brian Dohn reported that the aborted practice will count as one of UCLA's 15 allowed during the spring.
