My Brother's Shadow

Must be tough being a UCLA football fan these last couple of years. The Trojans have simply dominated on the gridiron. And as if that weren't bad enough, over the last couple of weeks, the Boys from Troy have reigned supreme off the field in the scandal category as well.

Folks in Westwood must be beside themselves. This was a once-proud program known for being no slouch in off the field troubles. I mean, who could forget when 16 Bruin players were charged with illegally possessing disabled parking permits. But lately they have lived in the long shadow of their Pac 10 brethren.

Well, fear not, Bruin faithful. UCLA stepped up big last week when not one but two of its players had warrants for their arrest issued for felony assault charges. Linebacker John Hale and defensive tackle Jess Ward both pleaded not guilty to the charges which stemmed from an incident at Ward's parents' house in February.

If a crime was committed, it seemingly would be having only 20 tackles despite playing in 11 games and starting 7. . . . Seemingly, this guy is not much of a threat.

The ultimate insult - UCLA being equated to Billy Baldwin. Nuff said.
