Dear Coach Mora,
As fans, we are really proud of what you and the entire team have accomplished this year. While we didn’t win the scoreboard against Stanford, it’s time to move on. Make that stinging loss a motivation for the next game: You have bowl game to not just win, but to dominate.
The challenge you have is to keep your team's level of play up at the level of a top 10 team, no matter how Baylor plays. Look, people will talk over then next 3.5 weeks about Baylor’s #1 “explosive” offense. Hogwash. Sure they have some talent, but UCLA should dominate this game. Our expectations are high of you and and your team. UCLA should dominate Every aspect of this game. Offense, Defense. Special Teams. Focus. Effort and Coaching.
Like the USC game, this one is about the W. Unlike the USC game, it’s also about the quality of the W. The game should be “over” sometime before the fourth quarter starts. We want to celebrate with you and we want to see a large number of non-starters in the 4th quarter. The following should be your goal: dominate the game so much that every senior sees some playing time. Set yourself that high standard of excellence and accept nothing less from your team.
We’re with you. We know what you can do and we’re looking forward to the Bowl and UCLA's journey to being a team that consistently competes, wins most games, and best represents the overall excellence of UCLA.
Ready to Scream and shout myself hoarse at the Q!
Go Get ’Em!
