It's easy for UCLA "fans" to be critics. It's hard to be the man in the arena in harm's way.
While schools across the country have engaged in a build first, ask questions later facilities arms race, Warrior has been deliberate in His actions. While often criticized by Bruin "fans" for lacking football and basketball practice facilities and fielding complaints from the "fans" about an outdated Pauley Pavilion, Warrior did what he does best - He found a solution that was responsible, timely, and ultimately, a game changer in the near future.
Withstanding short-term criticism for long term gain, the athletic department is now on the cusp of opening the Wasserman and Ostin Centers - a mere five years after reopening a fully renovated Pauley.
While the long-term view is not always the most popular view, I appreciate that Warrior is willing to enter into the arena, take risks, face potential defeat in pursuit of ultimate victory and, at the end of the day, compete.
This is the spirit that Warrior has embraced better than any other AD in the country.
