Bruin Seali’i Epenesa was released today by the New England Patriots
Bruin Seali’i Epenesa was released today by the New England Patriots. Epenesa was a fine contributor to the team with 16 tackles in seven starts for the team as a senior. Undrafted, Epenesa was signed by the Patriots in June. BruinAuthority.com notes: We loved Epenesa, a true Bruin, and hope he is able to catch on somewhere. His fantastic family always had awesome tailgate parties as well. Good luck, Seali’i.
Big 12 Commissioner Slams NCAA: ‘Cheating Pays’ In College Football
In his state of the league address today, Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby says “enforcement is broken.” We are hearing Heritage Hall over at USC hit 6.0 on the Richter scale after the Trojan boosters got wind of this revelation. Anyway, nothing earth shattering here except that instead of coming from some rabid fan, it comes from a major voice in college sports.
University of Miami Mascot Walks Bride Down The Aisle
In keeping with our world wide reputation of being a bunch of ass kicking, take no prisoners Bruin neanderthals, we generally are not the sentimental type or in touch with our feminine side. However, we thought this story was kind of cool.
The bride’s father passed away shortly before her big day. In his place came the University of Miami mascot, Sebastian the Ibis (yeah, we though the same thing as you when we read that name). The mascot wore her father’s nickname on the back of his jersey. The family members are big fans of the football team.
Fred Ulu-Perry Interview
Our friend Brett Pierce has a new site called Pac12Recruiting.com. Today he has a nice interview with Fred Ulu-Perry (downer alert: he is still taking some official trips to other schools), and he plans to take his official UCLA visit on the weekend of the Oregon game. That is shaping up to be a MONSTER recruiting weekend.
One new piece of trivia we learned from the story is that Fred’s Mililani High School in Hawai’i will be playing Bruin commit Josh Rosen’s St John Bosco High School this season.
A source of ours who is usually in the know says that a commitment is eminent. We are not talking about Rick Wade or Bryce English.
Don’t hold us to it though. These kids have a lot of people in their ears and frequently change their minds. Sometimes they commit silently as well too. This source has been rock solid for us in the past and has serious connections so we are just passing it on (he was our source when we were the FIRST to break the story that Kennedy Polamalu had been contacted by Mora for the running back coaching position). He says the coaches are telling certain recruits that positions are getting taken up fast and they need to know where each recruit stands. The implication being that UCLA can’t hold certain scholarship offers out there indefinitely. The recruits are taking notice.
