About Go Joe Bruin

This is Go Joe Bruin—a UCLA fan blog housed by the FanSided Sports Network, dedicated to delivering engaging content and first-rate reporting about the mighty Bruins of Westwood.

GJB was founded in 2011 by UCLA students, and has since been passed down to another generation of Bruins. And while things do change as each new custodian makes his or her mark, the motivation behind GJB remains: we write about UCLA because we love UCLA.

Go Joe Bruin’s work is featured on SI.com by virtue of FanSided’s content partnership with Sports Illustrated, and is widely syndicated by Bleacher Report’s Team Stream. To contact GJB with story leads, inquiries or media outreach, please send an email to the site’s lead editor.
