In Episode 62 of the What’s Bruin Show, hosts Bill Shirley, Jake Merrifield and I are graced with the presence from friend of the show, retired prosecutor and local UCLA cult hero, Jim Bendat “The Godfather of Sports Trivia”. He returns in-studio to talk with us about all things UCLA sports.

We start the show with some clips from the Jim Mora Celebrity Golf Classic red carpet events as I got to talk to UCLA greats like Troy Aikman and Jonathan Ogden, as well as the heads of the Count On Me Family Foundation, the coach himself and his wife Shannon Mora.

We then move onto some more Mora talk and ask where he sits among every UCLA football coach in history. From there move onto Mora’s position among the Pac-12 coaches and figure out who the best coach in the conference is (and who is not).

And in his new position, The Godfather takes over ‘What’s Going Down At The Morgan Center’ as we talk UCLA Baseball and Softball in their respective College World Series’.

All of this and more in Episode 62 of the podcast you all know and love, the
