Desperate times call for desperate measures
Apparently the intrepid and oh-so-gutty bruin head coach decided to draw a little attention to himself (and Ucla) by taking a helicopter ride out to see a potential recruit play a game.
The plan was for the chopper to hover about 25 feet above a baseball field adjacent to the game, and for Neu to leap out of the chopper, wearing a flight suit, carrying a banner reading "Mission Accompished: The Football Monopoly in LA is Officially Over!"
He'd then wrestle an alligator, save a kitten from a tree, and sing the national anthem while women threw their panties at him and grown men wept tears of gratitude.
Okay, maybe not an alligator.
The good news is this stunt wasn't paid for by our tax dollars (evidently some Ucla booster supplied the chopper). But how ridiculous is this whole thing? A chopper ride? Seriously?
Ah well ... I guess Ucla is a firm believer in the whole Hollywood thing about publicity stunts and all.
I'm just waiting for him to drive a tank into a game. I bet he'd look really super-cool in one of those helmets.
