When Under Armour officially announced its intentions to terminate its contract with UCLA Athletics, many Bruins fans had one thought: What’s next?
What apparel brand will pick up where Under Armour left off?
As the days were getting longer in early June, it seemed that our wait for UCLA football and other sports was only getting shorter.
However, with COVID-19’s resurgence in several areas of the country, UCLA must act quickly to reverse course and hit the brakes on its sports restart.
The day I got the call informing me I would be the new Sports editor for Daily Bruin, I had two immediate thoughts. The first: how lucky I was to follow in the footsteps of some of my mentors in helping our section grow throughout the next year.
What we need from Bruin Nation right now:
Bruin Nation is a strong, influential and loving family united by our shared UCLA experience – the campus, the athletics, the clubs, the friendships.
The end of spring quarter always brings a multitude of emotions to campus – excitement for what lies ahead, anticipation for the adventures that await, pride on what was accomplished this year, reflection on what we are hoping to accomplish in the future and some sadness to see another academic year end, and with it, the inevitable passage of time.

Although the 2019-2020 year finished with the cancellations of the remaining seasons for many UCLA teams, there were still inspiring performances by athletes competing in the blue and gold.
UCLA men’s basketball has won 11 national championships and produced five Hall of Famers in its 101 seasons in Westwood.
The list of basketball legends who have suited up in Pauley Pavilion is longer than nearly any other school’s, and the debates over the best of the best remain relevant to this day.
Much like the rest of the sports world, the Daily Bruin Sports editors spent the last five Sundays watching ESPN and Netflix’s 10-part documentary series, “The Last Dance.”
The 10-hour saga detailing the rise and fall of the Chicago Bulls’ dynasty with Michael Jordan earned national praise and set Twitter ablaze every week, and it has left audiences begging for more.
