Forgrave podcast: How did UCLA Bruins turn into such a disaster?

On the first episode of the FOX Sports college hoops podcast in the New Year, Reid Forgrave and Tarik Turner welcome Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Eisenberg to the show.

The guys break down the perception of West Coast hoops and dial in on Jeff’s alma mater with an important question: What in the world is going on at UCLA?

How did the Bruins become a disaster? Is there any chance they can save their season and make the tournament? Was Steve Alford the wrong hire? The guys dive into the Bruins around the 7:40 mark.

Other topics discussed:

• The pros and cons of Arizona and how the Wildcats compare to other elite teams

• Does Arizona or Gonzaga have the best shot of making the Final Four?

• How many teams does the Pac-12 get into the tourney and who are they?

• The incredible work Steve Fisher has done to turn around San Diego State. It’s hard now to believe that when Fisher started at SDSU, he couldn’t even give away tickets for free.
