To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Cheese Plus

Speaking of the big cheese, Oregon goes after UCLA tonight in the second round of the PAC-12 Tournament at 6 p.m.

This time UCLA will have its two best scorers, Kyle Anderson and Jordan Adams, who were suspended when the two teams met a couple of weeks ago.

Oregon blew a nice lead in that one during regulation, but survived in overtime and beat the Bruins.

UCLA doesn't have any excuses now. I expect the Bruins to win because they have better talent, though Oregon might have better depth.

Oregon is in the big dance.  So is UCLA.  This is a nice warm up for the real deal next weekend.  The winner may get the higher seeding in the dance, however.  That stuff is overrated.  You either play well in March Madness and advance, or you go home.
