Chill. Everyone needs to take a vacation. Even if other programs want to come after Savage I'm sure he'd give UCLA a chance to sweeten his current deal. More importantly football camp will be opening up in about 5 weeks.

I had the same reaction when I heard that Dan is in Italy.  But he probably had a vacation planned with family.  The chancelor is in Russia.  He too could not attend.  Even one of the assistants was off recruiting. 

It would have been nice for DG to be on hand.  But I wouldn't read anything into it.  He shouldn't have to cancel his trip to return.  They will have an official ceremony at the beginning of next season, when school is in session, to unveil the official NCAA banner.  Even Savage mentioned that this was a hastily arranged event.  It was a nice tribute to the players, especially those who are leaving school.

Dan doesn't deserve to be a punching bag.  He hired the coach which has had an extraordinary run.  Instead of giving him credit, he gets criticized.  He deserves better from our fans who pile on relentlessly.

Dude, relax.  Didn't you see that DG was at the Championship game in the dugout with Savage and the players?  Maybe he has a much, much tighter relationship with Savage and the program than you realize.  Maybe he's discussed this issue with Savage already and is confident of the situation?

DG doesn't have to report his daily activities or reasons to common fans like us.  Leave him alone.  Geez.  We win a championship and no one gives the man any credit.  They just find a reason to criticize him....

Savage may have agreed to remain as UCLA's coach but his relationship with Guerrero is cordial at best. From what I've heard inside Morgan - Guerrero cut short his Italy vacation after he heard about USC's attempt to take Savage away only to come home to a coach who was not willing to speak with him directly but rather was told to talk to the coach's lawyer. Perhaps Savage is upset that Guerrero was not able to push back his vacation by a couple days to witness the team's first ever national championship celebration. Just shows that Guerrero miscalculated his own judgment and fortunately for him, he was able to rectify the situation at the expense of cutting short his own vacation.

Re: Good thing DG is around to take care of 


Where do you get your inside info from Morgan, TMZ? Seriously, RuinNation complains about everything. The sky is falling all the time, even after we win the championship and retain our coach after a hard push from our arch rival. Now are you going to worry that Savage might leave anyway in the next couple of years due to friction with DG? Puhleeeze....
