UCLA Football; The Day After

|

It has been more than 24 hours since UCLA announced the firing of head coach Jim Mora. Since the timing of the firing, with one week left in the regular season, caught many by surprise, it is a good time to take a step back and look at the situation from a sort of aerial […] READ MORE


UCLA Fires Jim Mora

|

In a move that will surprise most, Jim Mora has been fired as UCLA football coach. Mora was 46-30 with one game left in his sixth season at the helm of UCLA. After Saturday night’s loss to USC, he was 28-26 in Pac 12 play. The Bruins are 5-6 this season with one home game […] READ MORE


UCLA Football; How Was Your Week?

|

How has your week gone? Probably better than the one the UCLA football program is having. Quarterback injuries, season ending injuries at other positions, a retirement, an uncalled for swipe at a player, decommits from recruits. And, oh yeah, they got hammered by Utah. It’s been an amazing seven days for the Bruins, and not […] READ MORE


UCLA Has No Answers In 48-17 Loss

|

It doesn’t take a lot to figure out how UCLA got summarily dismantled by Utah, 48-17, in Salt Lake City Friday night. You can start with quarterback Josh Rosen not making the trip due to a concussion that UCLA announced Friday. Maybe a tell on how the game went is that UCLA had more punting […] READ MORE


UCLA Gets Abused By Washington

|

UCLA’s loss to Washington was hardly unexpected. The fact that the Huskies used the ground game as their primary weapon was not unexpected. What was unexpected was the complete dominance with which Washington handled UCLA from the outset in route to a 44-23 win in Seattle Saturday. Jake Browning was not that good at quarterback […] READ MORE


UCLA Football Crashes In The Arizona Desert

|

UCLA football has one of the worst run defenses in the country. Arizona has one of the best run offenses in the country. Put the two together and the outcome is fairly inevitable. Add in a poor performance by Bruins quarterback Josh Rosen, you get the 47-30 Arizona lambasting of UCLA Saturday night. UCLA Crashes […] READ MORE


UCLA Holds Off Colorado

|

Sometimes it takes doing new things to get a team that has struggled in recent weeks into the win column. For UCLA Saturday night at the Rose Bowl, that meant playing tougher than usual run defense and using clock management on offense. Neither of those worked to perfection, but there were vast improvements over previous […] READ MORE



UCLA vs. Stanford Equals Predictable Outcome

|

UCLA has once again proven to be the antidote for anything that ails Stanford. The Cardinal may have struggled in back-to-back losses, but a 58-34 win over the Bruins in Palo Alto put a bounce right back in their Pac 12 step. Lose the starting quarterback to concussion protocol? The second-string quarterback doesn’t look as […] READ MORE


UCLA Gets An Expected Win

|

UCLA got the win it expected, a 56-23 blowout of Hawaii Saturday before a crowd of only 50,444 at the Rose Bowl. The Bruins also got more than what they bargained for, with injuries, a coming suspension, a MIA player and a porous run defense. A precursory glance at the numbers will show UCLA dominated […] READ MORE
