is not possible by any objective criteria. While still in the realm of possibilities, wining the Pac-10 should not, MUST NOT, save Dorrell. Actually, if by some miracle (like all the other schools in the Pac-10 drop football before the season ends) UCLA wins the Pac-10, it is just further evidence that Dorrell is inept. To win Pac-10 Dorrell would have to beat Cal, Arizona State, Oregon and $c. In my imaginary world where this happens, then the question DG and any remaining Dorrell supporters would have to ask how a team could beat those teams and lose to Utah and the worst Notre Dame in a century.
The parallels that have drawn here on BN between Dorrell and Lavin are just too eerie. Inconsistent play, players not well coached in the fundamentals of the sport, problems recruiting talent at all positions, losing to inferior teams then pulling off the unexpected upset and, of course, what is the most important criteria to keep your job while performing far below reasonable expectations, looking like you know what you are doing while all objective criteria demonstrates the exact opposite.
Changing head coaches is no longer a question of if, but a question of when. Please DG, give us a coach we can be excited about. Give us someone who will restore some pride in the football program. Give us a coach that makes it fun to go to the games again. DG we implore you to save UCLA football before it has sunk to a level that it is not possible to bring in a decent replacement for the embarrassment that is the current head coach.
Finally, thanks those who created Bruins Nations and keep it going. Without this forum, where could we all go to vent. OK, I feel little better now.
