Jim Mora Jr. Goes Off On UCLA's Upcoming Schedule, "A Complete Injustice"

UCLA's next two games are weeknight games. This does not please Bruins' coach Jim Mora Jr. 

His team, which was upset by Arizona State tonight, has back-to-back Thursday night contests. They play at Stanford on Oct. 15 and home against California on Oct. 22. The game against the Cardinal will kick off at 7:30 p.m. local time, with the contest against the Bears kicking off at 6 p.m. local time. 

Mora called the back-to-back weeknight games a "complete injustice" for his players.

UCLA has a bye next week, so they won't have a short week to prepare for the first Thursday game. The second Thursday game will also be played on normal rest, since it occurs a week after the first one.

These players are supposed to be student-athletes, though, and weeknight games definitely get in the way of a player's academic schedule much more than a Saturday game does.
