It's been quite a while since our Bruin Football Team has played with the intensity that we have seen against Houston and Texas. I feel like they took a long and hard look in the mirror and decided that they were a better football team than their first two games.
The Bruins have really done a 180 these last two games. Without a doubt, every Bruin fan can see and appreciate how different these last two weeks have been. I guarantee you that no football team is going to lie down and give us the game, we are going to have to go out there with the same intensity and take it.
I hope that every player in the UCLA roster can see that although we are not firing with all of our pistons and there is lots of improvement to be made, we can compete with any division I football team and not be ashamed of the final score. Every player out there has to do their job and do it well. And If you practice poorly, you play poorly. And if you do not give 100% in practice, you do not give 100% in the game.
As a longstanding UCLA fan (circa 1970) , I was fortunate to hear the wisdom of our recently departed coach and UCLA treasure John Wooden. Coach Wooden made many paper signs during practice to brand his philosophy in the minds of his players. One of the signs read " we will play as good as we practice."
Go Bruins, lets show everyone that Champions Are Made Here!!!
