Let’s start this Tuesday with some possible good news. The Prices and UCLA are hopeful that Karl Dorrell’s prized defensive recruit could be cleared by NCAA by the end of this week. From Dohn:
Frank Price said he spoke with members of the UCLA football coaching staff and was told all of his son's information was in order.
"I would be really surprised if they didn't make a decision by Wednesday, and I'd be shocked if he wasn't cleared," Frank Price said. "(The NCAA) is supposed to do something this week. It's a matter of reviewing the information and clearing him. I don't see a problem with it." […]
Frank Price said he spoke with Bob Lopez, UCLA's director of football operations, and was told the technical school Brian took classes at "was accredited," and it was a matter of the paperwork being finalized.
Moving on to injury news it looks like Pitre and Cowan are still recovering from their injuries. However, some good news on RB front. Chane – the Train – Moline may be available for the BYU game. From the OC Register:
Speaking of our opponents Chris Foster has these notes on BYU:
Running back Harvey Unga had 194 total yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Max Hall, in his first collegiate start, threw two touchdown passes.
All of which left the Cougars wanting more.
"When we take on somebody who has that type of hype, we want to get some notoriety too that we are a powerhouse team," BYU sophomore wide receiver Austin Collie told the Salt Lake Tribune after the game.
"I feel that we are one of the best programs in the nation, and that is what we are striving to do -- get to that BCS bowl game -- and we are willing to take on whoever we have in front of us."
The Bruins, though, did not seem to be shaking in their cleats.
"They're a good team, we respect them, but we're very confident in what we can do," quarterback Ben Olson said. "We feel like if we play our game, we'll be all right."
I will post my BYU notes later this evening. However, if you want to beat me to the punch and share your notes on the Cougars, please do so in the comment section here or diary it up.
