Three days ago UCLA suffered a wrenching a point loss to #4 Kansas at Kansas.

Tonight, the Bruins returned to the "friendly" confines of Pauley Pavilion.

Surprise.

Congrats to "Little Wayne" Tinkle who is doing a real nice job at UM. Also to Brian Qvale, the Griz big guy who just gets better every season.

Here's the LA Times' story:

The eye-catcher quote: "Nevertheless, Howland said this season was not starting to remind of him of last season, when the Bruins lost six of their first eight games and went on to finish with a losing record, 'because these guys like each other.'"

Turning to schadenfreude is a weak and ultimately unfulfilling compensation for one's grievous disappointment.......

Agreed...but seeing high-level programs like UNC and UCLA go through their share of ups and downs is a good reminder of just how difficult it is to maintain consistent success.

Anyone suffering grievous disappointment about the Zags at this stage of the season either has harbored unrealistic expectations or is a drama queen of the first order.

Go Griz!

Bright spot in a season of tough challenges for our Zags. I have two teams I root for...Guess which two!

I marvel that you bring this up since it seems to be your tack after (imo, too) many GU games. But you are right about it being "weak and unfulfilling. . . "

Interesting factoid. The local LA TV announcers (when the weren't criticizing UCLA's poor performance) told the following story: many, many years ago UCLA wanted "Grizzlies" as the team mascot name but U of Montana was already called the "Grizzlies" and somehow sued to preclude UCLA from using it. So UCLA became the "Bruins". True story according to the announcers.

Is the mascot of the U of California not The Golden Bear? Is the Golden Bear not the very same bear as the Grizzlie?

from Wiki http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_bear

Taxonomy

There are several Brown Bear subspecies.

* Species Ursus arctos
o Eurasian Brown Bear (Ursus arctos arctos)
o Siberian Brown Bear (Ursus arctos beringianus); Siberia
o Golden Bear (Ursus arctos californicus) †
o Atlas Bear (Ursus arctos crowtheri) †
o Gobi Bear (Ursus arctos gobiensis); Mongolia
o Grizzly Bear (Ursus arctos horribilis); Canada and United States

and Oski the Golden Bear, of course; and yes, tis the season, so I included the Stanford Tree. Cheers

HA, you funny! Well, truth is I root for anything Montana, home of my heart. Go Cats too!

Hondo....Grizzly is a "Silvertip". Golden bear is a bottle of honey or something. Clearly what Grizzlies EAT!

Lady Zag Shannon Reader's little brother is a frosh for the Griz. Good for him.

Not sure why we are talking about Montana. Although some of my best dorm-mates were from Montana, especially at Roncalli in 1972 - 74. And come to think of it, one of my favorite freshman was from Montana. She lived on the 3rd floor of Madonna and she was beautiful and very intelligent and knew the meaning of just about everything except as I recall she did not know the meaning of the word "no". Or so it seemed. God I love Montana.

Go Bulldogs!

Would liked to have seen Josh Smith in a Zags uniform. Wonder if he's happy about his choice to be a Bruin so far.

Hey 75Z - I knew that gal (spurs and all), main reason I moved to Montana after finishing at GU. Congrats to the Griz.

...the other reason to follow the Griz is Shawn Stockton - who had 12 minutes in that game with 2 from the charity, I believe (or did I miss someone else's post). However, there are far too many "more religious" reasons such as yours, 75.
