: : : : That's kind of been UCLA's hiring focus in all the sports over the years--get the best coach they can at bargain prices!
: : : : Walt's Dog
: : : They have a balanced budget and still have contenders in almost every sport they field. Would you want it like Rutgers which pays someone like CVS who is the fourth highest paid person at Rutgers, has the largest deficit of any Div 1 school and has taken funds allocated for academics and illegally channeled them to their dying athletics program? Or maybe like Cal which had such a deficit that a few years ago, they tried to cancel their baseball, gymnastics -men and women, and womens lacrosse?
: : Don't blame the UCLA Coach, UCONN has superior talent. I'm a Jordan C fan, but she played awful and although her form is better than Lonzo, her results were like his. Just saw her throwing up bricks from the outside that didn't draw rim and desperate circus drives to the basket. She missed a couple of looks to the Auzzie Frosh who was hitting. She should know by now, set up the teammate that is scoring well in the game and keep going to her.
: If Jordin (nor Jordan) is playing out of control and throwing up wild shots, why isn't her coach correcting her? This isn't her freshman year, it's her senior year and she's been like that all her career. Coach Close has not developed her. If she's not hitting her teammates for an assist, who should be telling her to do so?
"We take kind of a different approach to recruiting," Auriemma said. "Our approach always has been that we try to identify early on what we are looking for and when we find it we spend all our time and energy on those kids. If it is one, two or three, we go in believing we are going to get the kids that fit what we want because we have worked hard enough."
A plan. An agenda.
