If Dorrell can, he should gracefully withdraw from award list

From the diaries -N

It was terribly painful to watch UCLA's complete unraveling against SC last week, but I can't share in the gnashing of teeth about UCLA's recent sports record. We hold the record for most NCAA titles, and unless my memory is wrong, we won at least two titles last year (men's tennis and water polo). And this year's basketball team has some tremendous talent, with at least two more new prospects next year. The win over Nevada was particularly impressive since the team still isn't in full health.

But I want to comment about about a story I saw on uclabruins.com.The story said Karl Dorrell is on a list of six finalists for the FWAA Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award. (I think that's the Football Writers of America Association.)

The other five coaches are Texas' Mack Brown, SC's Carroll, Central Florida's George O'Leary, Penn State's Joe Paterno, and Notre Dame's Charlie Weis.

Now it may not be diplomatically possible for Dorrell to decline the nomination. But it's embarrassing for Bruin fans; this's year's record isn't a source of pride, and if it's possible, Dorrell should do the right thing and say thanks but no thanks.
