In episode 208 of the What’s Bruin Show, we cover a lot of ground which includes the UCLA football Spring Game, the latest adventures with UCLA basketball and we say our goodbyes to Miss Val.
In the latest episode, hosts Jake Merrifield and I put together a show that was not expected to be put together. Though we originally agreed to take the week off, we came together anyway as there has been so much news coming out of Westwood, most notably the UCLA football Spring Game.
We start with a few non-revenue sports, most notably the big event surrounding UCLA Gymnastics. Over the weekend, the Bruins participated in the NCAA Championships as they tried to claim back-to-back titles. Unfortunately, that was not in the cards as the Bruins finished in 3rd place, but that did not take the spotlight off Miss Val who ends her tenure as the head of the program.

From the gym, we head to the diamond as we briefly discuss the UCLA baseball team who is #1 for the sixth consecutive week, but the Bruins have some heat on their tail, especially from a few Pac-12 foes.
We then hit the hardwood as we discuss UCLA women’s basketball who is already getting a lot of attention heading into next season. Though the national media needs to do a better job of researching this Bruins squad, it gives us hope for not only Cori Close’s team, but women’s basketball as a whole.
From there we move into the goings-on with Mick Cronin and the men’s team. Jake and I talk about the chain reaction that started with the exit of Moses Brown and how that has led to a high-profile recruit giving some attention to UCLA.
We then finish our discussion with the Chip Kelly and the UCLA football team who wrapped up spring practice with their annual Spring Game. Though it was a glorified practice, there were many things we were able to take away from the last piece of football until August.
Not only do we examine the QB situation and look at who stood out on both sides of the ball, but we give a detailed breakdown of what type of plays were run and the Bruins’ tendencies in each play.
