I Know WHY!

The USC Men's Tennis Team won back-to-back NCAA Championships on Tuesday, May 25, 2010. The Trojans defeated three teams ranked above them to win the title. (Ohio State, Virginia and Tennessee). The (UC)LA Times reported that outstanding accomplishment with a MERE mention of two paragraphs about the Trojan victory in their "DAY IN SPORTS" column.

Yesterday, the UCLA Women's Softball Team won a MERE victory, 10-2 over Louisiana Lafayette. The same (UC)LA Times reported that Super Regional victory with a large headline and an eleven paragraph article written by Melissa Rohlin. The Bruins have not even made it to the College World Series yet!


UCLA Women are more important and deserve five times more coverage than USC Men!

Women's Softball must generate more interest and more professional revenue than Men's Tennis!

A MERE regional victory is better than Back-to-Back National Championships!


The (UC)LA Times just demonstrated their bias for UCLA over USC again!

Unknowns SLAM USC NCAA Men's Tennis Champions!

Congratulations to the USC Men's Tennis Team that defeated Tennessee 4-2 on Tuesday, May 25, 2010 to win the NCAA Championship back to back!

On Wednesday, May 26, 2010, the (UC)LA Times published only four paragraphs in "THE DAY IN SPORTS" reporting the victory on page C-8. Two paragraphs were about USC, one paragraph was about the Stanford Women winning the NCAA title and the other paragraph was all about Tennessee.

Here's the Unknown's SLAM! On the same day, Eric Sondheimer wrote an article that was seven times as long as USC's two paragraphs, about UCLA basketball unknowns David and Travis Wear. They are transferring from North Carolina to UCLA. So what!

Then, in this morning's Thursday, May 27, 2010 paper, reporter Chris Foster's article, about unknown UCLA tailback Milton Knox leaving UCLA, was twice as long as USC's two paragraphs. There was a picture of Knox also! Another Unknown's SLAM!

Why do three Unknown Bruins SLAM the NCAA 2010 Tennis Champion USC Trojans?

Because, the (UC)LA Times is biased for UCLA over USC!

What a DIfference a Day Makes!

In Saturday's 5/1/10 article (on page 2 in the Sports Section, no less!), reporter Melissa Rohlin interviewed both UCLA track coaches Mike Maynard and Jeanette Bolden, but not USC's coach. Her article entitled and printed in 1/2 inch bold letters was "Pressure will be on Bruins in dual meet". Most of the article (seven paragraphs out of ten) was about UCLA, not USC. I did not write a blog complaining about the (UC)LA Times bias for UCLA over USC on Saturday. My line of thinking was, that after USC defeats the Bruin men and women in the dual meet on Saturday, then on Sunday Ms. Rohlin will report about the two USC victories and will surely include an interview of USC's "Track Coach of the Year", Ron Allice.

What a Difference a Day Makes!

The Trojan men defeated the Bruin men 96-17. The Women of Troy defeated the Lady Bruins 106-57 on Saturday. On Sunday 5/2/10, there was a dinky "blurb" hidden in "THE DAY IN SPORTS" that reported that the Trojans had won both meets.

Where was a separate article (on page 2) with a recap of top performers?

Where was an interview of USC Coach, Ron Allice?

Because her beloved Lady Bruins were defeated so soundly, Ms. Rohlin (or whoever wrote the blurb) didn't even report the Women of Troy's winning score.

Actually, there is NO DIFFERENCE between Saturday and Sunday.

The (UC)LA Times BIAS for UCLA over USC still lives on!
