Dorrell's shortcomings are clear

   Let's see: UCLA loses 29-19 and kicks four field goals. If three of those field goals are touchdowns, UCLA wins, 31-19.
   Now some background: Dorrell tells Brian Dohn before the Washington game, "We'd love every time to score a touchdown, but I think the best thing is to make sure every time we're coming out of there with points."
  And now some post-game analysis from UCLA offensive coordinator Jim Svoboda: "Probably have to be a little more aggressive and take a couple of shots. Just taking a look back at it, off the top of my head, it may be something we had an opportunity to do."
  Finally, some post-game statistics for your consideration (from Dohn):
  "On each of UCLA's four possessions inside the 10-yard line, the first-down play was a run. And of 11 plays called inside the 10-yard line, seven were runs, including a hand-off to Kahlil Bell on third-and-goal from the 10 with the Bruins clinging to a 16-14 lead in the final minute of the third quarter.
  "Before the last desperation drive, the Bruins ran 19 times on first down, compared to four pass attempts on first down. Olson was also sacked once on first down."
   Can you say "predictable?" Or, maybe more to the point, "outcoached?"
