UCLA Students, Alumni Accustomed to Excellence

April 16, 1988

I strongly disagree with Titus Wong's letter (Viewpoint, April 9) in which he claims that the UCLA alumni and supporters are "spoiled" because they are not happy with an NIT championship and 62% success rate during Walt Hazzard's tenure.

The students and alumni at UCLA are accustomed to excellence, be it medical, educational, cultural or athletic. Wong epitomizes the character of his university (USC?) by implying that he would be willing to settle for mediocrity (at twice the tuition rate).

Wong also wrongly accuses Bruin fans of ridiculing and criticizing USC during its own search for a coach. Rest easy; we were just ridiculing and criticizing the school itself.
