Trouble brewing for Ben Howland and UCLA

The excellent blog Sports By Brooks first reported that Sports Illustrated is about to release an expose' about UCLA, particularly drug problems within the program.

SI will post the story to its website sometime Wednesday morning.

UCLA head coach Ben Howland, who is already facing a lot of heat for how bad the Bruins have been this season and the Reeves Nelson fiasco, will take even more criticism. Howland was asked about the upcoming story in his presser today (video above).

How bad will this story be? Who knows. But could it be enough to cost Howland  his job? It's an interesting debate. But he's not really beloved in LA or with the fanbase.
