I agree totally da coach.I think the previous administration decided to get rid of our previous logo because it had the word braves in it.They were trying to destroy anything with Braves.

It was also reported that the President wanted to try to copy the general appearance of some of the logos for highly esteemed eastern universities

It makes my skin crawl everytime I think how JG almost destroyed Bradley and what Jim Les and Ken Kavanaugh might have accomplished if they had been allowed to stay and do their magic

interesting .....they describe his time at Bradley quite positively..
they point out how he rebuilt Bradley and led them to big time post-season success/Sweet 16 and describe his time here as a success...

another one of Jim Les' players headed for some NBA workouts..
https://twitter.com/CaliforniaAggie/...59156538671105

this is pretty amazing...recall how ridiculed people were who predicted that when Jim Les was fired, then later hired by UC-Davis...
that a FEW predicted he would win a LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP, go the the NCAA, and get players into the NBA before Geno Ford would...
One of Les' current players is even being cited as a possible NBA draft pick next year - LINK
But, poof, it's all a distant memory along with half the fan base and donation base..thanks to JG/MC.

Unfortunately Dr. Glasser listened to the extreme few squeaky wheel whining fans (who sent e mails instead of contributions or support) and her own ego instead of common sense & the rest of the fan base.

reminiscent of Jake Eastman...
one of Coach Jim Les' recent grads at UC-Davis, JT Adenrele - going to work in the front office of the Sacramento Kings!
...seems JL has a way of getting them to the NBA one way or another!

Article on RECORD fundraising by UC-Davis
..pictured is their beer brewing laboratory for the course they teach!
https://www.ucdavis.edu/news/uc-davi...ndraising-year

Thy raised $250 million in ONE year! (Recall our big multi-year fundraising campaigns were $50, $100 and $150 million)
Not bad...and UC-Davis' widely publicized basketball success had something to do with it.

BTW, UC-Davis also has the top viticulture program (wine grape cultivating), as well as the top wine making program in the country. Because of their success in those areas and their proximity to Napa Valley, they receive a lot of financial support from many of the biggest vineyards in the country.

speaking of Coach Les' success...
one of my kids dug out an old t-shirt that was a game handout during the 2010-11 season...
it's a t-shirt celebrating a great 5-year run Bradley had once Coach Les was able to get his own players and select his own coaching staff...
I found a picture of the same shirt on ebay (see below)

"Bradley Basketball
5 years
750,000 Fans
12 Sellouts"

and don't forget - 101 wins in that 5-year span - and averaging almost 10,000 attendance at every home game!!

I am very optimistic that this year will get us back there! (anyone else get the Chip in the mail?)



It just made me realize that you just don't know what you got 'til it's gone..

yup - Coach Les is learning the hard way that if you get too good, too fast, the big boys will find a way to take you down...
