UCLA Fans Better Off if They Look Ahead

March 30, 1991

I am tired of my fellow UCLA basketball fans dreaming of the good old days. The constant comparisons of every decent player and team to the 10-of-12 NCAA titles and 88-wins-in-a-row days do an incredible disservice to the program.

Coach John Wooden's triumphs have been an albatross around the necks of every post-Wooden player and coach. No college basketball team will ever come close to those feats. North Carolina's Dean Smith, as good as he has been, has won only one NCAA title.
