Saturday Roundup & Notes

Yesterday we read about how the team was stumbling and bumbling in 3rd and long situations at practice. Today Foster reports that the SPJ tore it apart the defense during 7 on 7 drills:

Quarterback Ben Olson picked apart the defense in seven-on-seven drills.

"He's starting to be a little more decisive," Dorrell said. "You can tell he's a lot more comfortable now that we're restricting all that information we did in camp and are getting ready for a game plan.

"He will be sharp by the end of next week."
Well he better be because anything short of a 21+ blowout of the Cardinals could spell trouble for the mediocre coach. The rest of the Times story focuses on Holmes "learning" the FB position from UCLA coaches (we are assuming they are on the same page on the practice field unlike what happened with Ramirez).

BTW speaking of SPJ there is also an AP story out on Olson and rest of UCLA QBs. What caught my attention was Dorrell trying to pass the buck wrt this year's expectations:
Dorrell said having a so many starters back on both sides of the ball is a huge advantage from a paper standpoint, with a challenge involved.

"Since it's on paper, that's an expectation," he said. "That's the pressure side of it. I believe the team is mature enough to handle that."
Actually KD the pressure is on you to get this team to produce. Sure our players will have to step up but it is going to be up to you make sure it happens. Because if it doesn't you will have to take your mediocre show somewhere else.

Anyways, I will post a detailed post on SPJ and rest of our QBs later today or tomorrow am. Be on the lookout for it.

Elsewhere, on a non football related our women's volleyball team has a big game today against Nebraska. Nebraska, a volleyball powerhouse in the Prairie? Who knew? I am sure Jon over at Corn Nation will be all over it.

Happy Saturday.

Just one more weekend to go till we start the "Show Me" Season. I cannot wait.

GO BRUINS.
