UCLA was picked to finish #1 in the Pac12 and we can see that won't happen. Cori Close is an excellent recruiter but a poor coach and motivator. In the South Carolina game, she got into it with Jordin Canada after Jordin picked up a T. It hasn't been hard to see the tension between these two in subsequent games. Yes, those ugly "transfer" rumors have surfaced also with Ashley Hearn but since Canada's already a junior, I wouldn't put any stock in it. But it is also easy to see that UCLA is not playing together as a team and there is uneasiness between some of the athletes.
No bashing at all, but what can be done? UCLA has had great recruiting classes but not a lot to show for it. I would have loved to see Close as maybe an associate head coach but I think she's in over her head.
