Thoughts? Did he pack it in? Did he handle this well?
I was out of town and unable to watch the game, but it definitely makes sense that he'd rather play Stanford than Oregon tomorrow.
UCLA head coach Jim Mora spoke with the media Saturday night after the Bruins loss to Stanford.
He handled it about as well as you can. Reporter's being a d-bag.
Reporter was out of line but if UCLA rolls Stanford this weekend that post game press conference will be must see tv.
He handled that very well IMO.

He handled that a hell of a lot better than I would have. That reporter was a prick. When he made the "don't look over there for help, I'm over here," comment, I would have lost it.
+1 on that. I'm surprised he didn't get up and walk out after the third reporter insinuated the same thing. The surprise in all of this is didn't Stanford beat Oregon !! So you want to lose to Stanford so you can play Oregon instead of Stanford. Duh?
Clearly the press is a bit different in Los Angeles. You'd never see that here. Mora handled himself very well all considered.
I'm not a Ucla fan but I want to kick that guy's ass after hearing that. I mean the reporter...Mora handles that well. What a douche that reporter was
I thought it was the same reporter that came at him again. I loved the 'you don't scare me'
as much of a prick as tj simers was being, i'd love to see someone in the austin press corps come halfway as hard at mack as he was.
In Autzen, at that. With losing the turnover battle 3-1. With having to drive 78 yards late in the fourth quarter to get the tying score. That has to mean Stanford is clearly a team you want to have to face with a title on the line.
Can you imagine our staff sitting through something like that? Wow.
On a side note, is there ever video of our post game pc's?
As much as I wish the press asked tougher questions at Mack's pressers, that kind of 3rd degree would be over the line.
I would have loved see that reporter try to do that to Bobby Knight.
With folding chairs readily at hand?
Can we put Mora on the Mack successor list?
I couldnt believe some of the stuff that reporter said....I might have lost my cool, if I were Mora.
They aren't all like that. Simers is a complete prick. He does that to all the coaches here, even Phil Jackson when he was winning championships. Asking tough questions is fine, but he does it to call attention to himself.
Mora knew what to expect going in.
It would have been one thing had the line of questioning not led to a hey-look-at-me-and-how-I-stood-up-to-the-big-bad-head-coach-at-UCLA commentary that became as much about T.J. Simers as the program he was paid to cover that day. But that's not what happened when pen met paper:
It's only a theory, but perhaps the Bruins didn't quite go after the Cardinal on Saturday because a victory would have pitted them against Oregon in the Pac-12 Conference title game.
The reporter is a complete A-hole.
who knew anyone in Cali actually cared about UCLA football?
