"Best team in 9 years"

James Washington dropped in on the UCLA Alumni Band at our annual (whether we need it or not) rehearsal on Saturday and spoke about this year's football team. 

He said that this was the best team in 9 years because there was actually competition for each position - something that has been lacking due to no depth in the depth chart and not enough quality athletes.  And he reinforced that everyone really is being held accountable for their individual results on the field - something that hadn't happened consistently in prior years.

James, while liking both QB;s, gave the edge to Prince because he has "faster feet."  That said, he noted that Brethaut throws a great ball and has had a great pre-season camp.  And his smile lit up the room when speaking about the potential in Brett Hundley.  He underscored that he doesn't know who CRN's pick will be for QB as and would all know when Rick announces his choice.

He really likes the whole defensive mind set and thinks that the Trecy approach is being well received by the players and that the defense is an attacking, not passive, group (thank goodness!).

As excited as he was, James noted that the rebuilding process begun after the Dorrell era has been painful and far more difficult than anyone imagined.  That said, he clearly thinks that the Bruins will have some success this year.  I certainly hope so!
