FanPost

A Realistic Perspective

Like all alumni and fans, I'm excited —thrilled, actually — with the announcement that Ellis McCarthy is coming to UCLA. And I'm just as excited by some of the other recruits, as well as those on the horizon. But as many front-pagers have said repeatedly, recruiting is just one part of the formula for success. And while Mora has made all the right moves so far, we need to temper our enthusiasm with the knowledge that Neuheisel was a great recruiter, too. So, at least for me, I'm waiting to see whether Mora plays the most talented athletes or follows the path of Neuheisel, who seemed to give undue weight to experience. A case in point is Datone Jones. Based on his play last year, he shouldn't start. He may be 100 percent better this year, of course. But I'm waiting to see how Mora decides on the starters, along with whom he picks as his defensive coordinator. Go Bruins.
