Apparently there was an abundance of UCLA players that needed extra time to file their taxes on Tuesday as the team skipped out on practice. The UCLA players met for spring practice on Tuesday, suited up, went through stretches and then after huddling on the field, bolted for the exits.
It seems that this is a "tradition" on campus as the team has been organizing this "over the wall" walk out as long as Neuheisel can remember, however it caught him off guard. The team had told him they weren't going to do it this year and was so unexpected on Tuesday that it left potential recruits and high school coaches, invited to view practice, scratching their heads.
Well this won't help the team make it the "extra degree," but it sure helped the coaches reach their boiling point.
