Bruin Bites: Dan Guerrero and Rick Neuheisel Fail Edition

Texas players celebrate in the Rose Bowl end zone in front of some Texas fans, a lot of empty seats, and the absence of anyone wearing blue . . . at a UCLA home game. Pathetic.

As I discussed earlier, that loss to Texas was flat-out embarrassing. If you want to subject yourselves to more torture (courtesy of this dysfunctional, diseased culture of mediocrity under Dan Guerr-error), you can go through the discussions we've had about how pathetic this UCLA program was yesterday under Dan Guerr-error and Rick No-heisel's Reign of Error here, here, here, and here.

There is no doubt that Dan Guerrero has completely FAILED during his tenure as UCLA's athletic director, just as there is no doubt that, so far, Rick Neuhseisel has completely FAILED during his time as UCLA's head football coach.

If I was a staffer at Morgan Center (read: chumps like proven liar Mark Harlan), I'd be sweating right now. The debacle that is UCLA football is completely unacceptable.  Neuheisel will be the second head coach Guerrero hired who has not panned out.

Simply put, Dan Guerr-error is on the hot seat, and if he and Rick can't turn this thing around fast, when we come after him and his job, I can guarantee that no one in Morgan Center will be safe from criticism. So boys, you better get to work or those sweet, sweet UCLA paychecks won't be coming in much longer. After all guys, you should know you're already on a short leash after your other failed, idiotic boondoogles (or did you forget #SFatPauley, #VetoSeto, and of course, Dump Dorrell).

With that, let's turn to this special edition of your Bruin Bites round-up of bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse after the jump.


It is apparent that Neuheisel will not be the head coach in January unless there is a miracle that would even leave the baby Jesus slack-jawed in awe. But what then? Who can Guerrero get to coach this program that isn’t even a shell of what it used to be.

There is something toxic going on in Westwood, something deeper than a mere cosmetic head coaching fix. I don’t know what it is. I can’t put my finger on it. But with a football program that can’t stop tripping over itself with Bob Toledo, Karl Dorrell and Neuheisel, there is one common thread: Dan Guerrero.

"People labeled me as done," he said. "I was like, 'I can't buy into that. I've got to make a comeback. I've got to stay positive.' Nobody really understands, but people are going to understand one day because I'm going to have a voice.

"I'm going to make people feel me. I'm going to make people feel my pain."

With that, try to enjoy the last few hours of the weekend before we get back to the work-week, despite the nasty taste in everyone's mouth following Dan Guerrero and Rick Neuheisel's latest major failure in Westwood.
