OT: UCLA RS Freshman Nick Pasquale killed in car accident
Heard about it this morning. What a crazy and sad thing to happen.
Terrible... Praying for the family, team, and his friends... Never want this kind of stuff to happen. As for whoever decided his phone call was that important, shame on you.
Yeah, this is a bummer. It's a weird story too - despite it being during the season, the kid was at home in San Clemente, which is a couple hours from Westwood (and a very cool town, btw). And he was walking across the street at 1:30am. I know kids go home during the school year, but during the season? I'm not saying it's the kid's fault or anything, just that it's a strange story.
It explains in the article that UCLA had a by and many players went home for the weekend.
I know they had a bye, but it seems odd to go home for the weekend during the season. I didn't play sports and I almost never went home (and I lived about as far away as he did). Despite it being a bye weekend, I image they don't have a ton of free time.
I think it happens more during the early years than you think. My first year at GVSU it seemed everyone went home. Then I realized the west side of the state is weird and went back to the east side.
"Then I realized the west side of the state is weird and went back to the east side."
Just so you are aware, we say the exact same thing about the east side of the state...
in the middle know exactly what both of you are talking about
Mora was talking about it in his presser today when a TV tech answered his cell phone. Mora got rightly pissed off
I agree that he handled it well. The fact that the idiot then has the nerve to tell him to "Go on" is beyond comprehension. Mora walking away was the right thing to do so it didnt escalate as I'm sure his emotions and everything were getting the best of him. The ten minutes or so he spoke with the reporters later on was really touching and show the compassion he has. Seems like a good guy that UCLA has there leading their program.
USC's time of dominating the SoCal recruiting scene may be coming to an end. The Trojan AD better put out the tire fire that is Lane Kiffin pretty damn quick.
...every SC alum I know respects what Mora is doing.
Talked later to the media about Nick Pasquale. Good, touching watch.
Incredibly sad. Condolescences to his family.
with anyone I love and care about. Sad, indeed.
that "reporter/media member" is an F'ing clown. I'd have gone nuts on him so kudos to Mora for not getting in an altercation. From the football comments here, I can say that I've always had a general liking for UCLA outside of when we would play. Mora is doing well and will run Lane Kiffin out of town if he doesn't do it himself by week 5.
May they remember him with an elite performance in each game.
thoughts with his family, too young. the first comment on the article makes me so sad, how can someone be so heartless.
