• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

Solid. Not the grand slam. But the pretty brunette who will be loyal instead of the IG model who gave you her ass for Coachella backstage passes.

Dixon, who has an NIT and CBI Championship on his resume, is not a solid hire for UCLA.

UCLA going deep into their contact list if the only people answering the call are Jamie Dixon and Mick Cronin.

Proven P5 HC that has taken two schools to the NCAA's. Had historic seasons at Pitt and TCU. Worst season at Pitt was 19 wins, multiple seasons at TCU with 20+ wins.

UCLA needed a grounded head man in charge that gets it. Will coach defense and recruit LA hard. Was born here. Wooden way.

Anybody who doesn't think theyll win big here is fooling themselves.

I see the hate. I understand.

Am I wrong?

Look at the national media. UCLA offers Cal a pay raise. He was on the verge of accepting. It leaks and the deal falls through. Media laughs at UCLA for going deep.

Now media laughs at UCLA for going at a very good coach in Dixon. There’s no inbetween.

“But the expectations are unreasonable.” o rly?

Where’s the middle ground?

I’m not sure Cal using an offer from a pseudo potential employer to leverage a better offer from his current employer rises to the level of “on the verge of accepting but the deal leaked and fell through.”

Good narrative for UCLA though so they don’t have to admit they never had a shot at a NEXT LEVEL CORCH, and instead got played.

Narrative. You guys are proving my points.

Why did Cal tweet Big Blue Nation the night before their opening round game then? What was their counter? A lifetime offer. Why offer that if they just "failed" by not even getting to the final 4.

A bunch of Jeff Goodman's in here.

But Chip came out west. Oh rightttt.....

Now Dixon is a shitty coach. LOL.

Won 24, 21 and 23 games at TCU.

But let you guys circle jerk to your Fran Fraschilla narratives on the UCLA job. Probably still think they’re cheap and that their facilities are ancient.

Cal had a great interview on the DP show today. He says he was never made an offer by UCLA and doesn’t have a lifetime contract with Kentucky. I felt like I was watching an episode of the Sopranos or sitting at dinner with my grandfather.

Big donors pulled out late. Didn’t want to pay that type of buyout for Dixon.

Will wait till Final Four is over. Coach still coaching this weekend in the Final Four has a offer he may not be able to refuse and UCLA unleashed the bank. F854A9AF-FD1A-4955-8FE6-448754A8AB00.gif Stay tuned..

Would Beard leave a place that he coached for 13 years as an assistant and a head coach for UCLA? I don't know....maybe.
