Wall Street Journal: UCLA Is "Dangerous," One Of "College Football Giants" Who Could Wake Up In 2009

The Wall Street Journal is feeling good about our Bruins. No, they are not coming out with some kind of crazy liberal prediction of UCLA becoming a BCS team, BUT they think Neuheisel's Bruins could be "dangerous" in 2009 (HT nycbruin):

The second set of teams isn't likely to yield a BCS participant, but UCLA is dangerous. Coach Rick Neuheisel boasted just six returning starters last year, and neither of his top two quarterbacks, who both got hurt before the season. The team ranked 104th nationally in turnover margin out of 119. With merely passable quarterback play from redshirt freshman Kevin Prince, UCLA could find eight wins on its reasonable schedule.

Well, I am going to stick to my guns and call talk of 8 wins "delusional." lol However, I do think if we manage to win 6 regular season games heading into that last weekend of the football season, CRN will have the program set up right where he wants it.

Also, note how the WSJ grouped UCLA as one of the "college football giants" with Notre Dame, Michigan, and Nebraska (in their subheader). Guess they also don't buy the bullshit about UCLA being just a basketball school.

GO BRUINS.
