Bruin Bites: Flash 80 Jr. Profile, Innovative Bruins, and Football Updates

It's been a fun couple of days here in Bruins Nation.  Football has officially returned, which despite the decade-long slump we've been mired in, has all of us excited that, finally, just maybe, this is the season that we finally turn it around.  Patroclus wrapped up our positional overviews with his discussion on the quarterbacks, running backs, and F-backs, one of our regulars chimed in with some updates on Albert Cid, Jaime Graham, and Derrick Bryant (HT muircoach), and Ryan gave us an analysis and round-up following the first day of fall practices.  Meanwhile, we discussed various "journalists" who are obviously oblivious when it comes to UCLA basketball, and took note of UCLA's place in the top five "athletic colleges" despite a decade of mediocre football.

With that, let's turn to the mid-week bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse:

With that, those are your Bruin Bites for the middle of the work week.  Try not to work too hard and we'll see you all this weekend.  Fire away with your mid-week thoughts, nuggets of news, and opinions.
