Optimism!!!

FOOTBALL:

People are approaching this game all wrong.

It is WIN-WIN!!!

Here it is: if UCLA wins, SC is outa the Rose Bowl, and we have a shot at it. If SC wins, KD is gone. WIN-WIN!

I'm tired of Bruin negativity. Yes KD sucks. Yes UCLA football threw away its season. But let's look at the bright side here, beyond just our WIN-WIN Saturday:

  1. Our best player Kahlil Bell may not be amazing, but he did average 5.6 yds per carry with little help from an otherwise anemic offense. He's back next year.
  2. Markey is a senior.
  3. Forbath is good.
  4. SC is back to the pack.
  5. We have a theoretically decent recruiting class (no 5 stars mind you, but at least a few of these guys will fill holes).
  6. All these injuries have shown us a lot about who on this team is good and who is not. That will help next year's new head coach.
  7. The fans here at Bruins Nation prove that we do remember--UCLA is a football school, and even a season like this (in which we could be anywhere from 1-5 in the conference), is unacceptable.
  8. We may choke it up, but man....we're not NEARLY as pathetic as Cal. Every year, top 10 preseason, completely fall apart.
8 for 8-clap. Go Bruins!

Note:
I stand by my previous post--I take an SC loss, any day, any circumstance. But on this very rare occasion, the pain of a rivalry defeat could be tempered by the chance of change. So don't mope--SMILE!! For once, no worries going in, no worries coming out. I'm looking forward to it!
