who gave those fools a blog?

Posted by wewantwalker on December 19, 2007

Finally, I’m making a post on the topic I believe to be the most important in the Bruin Blogosphere.

It’s not about Karl Dorrell

It’s not about DeWayne Walker

It’s not about this coaching search.

It’s about attitude.

Yes, attitude.

Before I go any further, I want to thank all those who have commented and visited this site. This is my first blog and to be having almost 4,000 hits in a day was something beyond my wildest expectations. I especially want to thank those who have kept the dialogue civil in the face of opinions that are polar opposites.

And that’s really what this is all about

Dialogue. Respect.

Not embarrassing UCLA.


I went to high school with one of the guys who started TedfordisGod.com, now thebandisoutonthefield.com, and he had some interesting, yet not unexpected comments about bruinsnation.


The Official Symbol of BruinsNation 


“Yeah, they get a lot of traffic, but god, they are the most pathetic jackasses to ever grace the pages of sbn.”

I’m paraphrasing, but that’s not far from what he actually said.

He then went on to say how they edited one of his comments for grammar and insulted him simply for being from cal.

God, how EMBARASSING.  Way not to show that you’re COMPLETELY INSECURE about being a bruin.


Bruinsnation has referred to Karl Dorrell in countlessly horrid ways. They have demeaned him as a human being and attacked him personally. You can want a man fired without going after him personally. Really, try it. Oh, and they attack the players, too.

And calling DeWayne Walker a shameless self-serving hack. WOW. If you don’t want the guy to be the coach, then say so. Don’t go make up stories and wild conspiracy theories with no credibility.  DeWayne Walker is universally respected. By anyone not in a straitjacket.


 The Official Clothing Line of BruinsNation

Our message is simple. Stop embarrassing UCLA.

Or you can continue to act like a brat and be the laughingstock of the Bruin/Sports Blogosphere.

But you know what, folks? There can be another voice.  This website was started because we think DeWayne Walker is a goldmine.  Apparently, both inside and outside this website, and inside and outside of Morgan Center, we’re not alone. But the concept is bigger than DeWayne Walker…it goes like this…

You can be funny. You can be interesting. You can have a sense of humor. You can be passionate. You can have a great blog…All without personally attacking individuals who have shown themselves to be dignified and who have represented this university well.


We aim to be that site. We’re not going away after this coaching search. We’re going to launch a new blog. We’re going to be biting. We’re going to be funny. We’re probably going to cuss and be a bit sophomoric. And we’re going to be a check on the looneys. Man, this is going to be cool.

And you know what? We’re not going to embarrass the great name of UCLA by slinging mud and acting like eight-year-olds. Yeah. I know. What a concept eh?


Stay tuned. It should be friggin’ fantastic.

We Want DeWayne Walker

Posted by wewantwalker on December 7, 2007

This is a simple website. With a simple message.

We–the students, alumni, fans, and parents of UCLA football–want Dewayne Walker to be UCLA’s next football coach.

Athletic Director Dan Guerrero made it very clear. He wants a coach that will bring consistent, excellent results on the field and integrity and class off of it.

And Walker will do just that.

It is the charge of this website to show to the UCLA community that it, for once, it doesn’t need to look far and wide for a fantastic head coach.

They’ve got one right under their nose.

Over the next days, we will assemble the evidence, we will gather the statistics, and we will compile the accolades. When all is said and done, there will be very little question of who UCLA will want as its next head coach:Photo by Lisa Cates

We Want Walker. Let’s do this.
