Bumped. In case you have not seen this yet, this is MUST WATCH TV for all UCLA alums, students and fans. The interaction between Coaches Jim Mora and Rick Neuheisel is pretty amazing. It tells us a lot about these two guys. It is too bad Neuheisel's career didn't work out as a UCLA head coach but the way he has handled himself after he was done as UCLA HC will enhance his wonderful legacy as a player. It also didn't hurt the fact that he did help this program by elevating our recruiting in recent years. As Mora is off to a great start we hope he can finally translate the recruiting success into on field one next season. - BN Eds.
Jim Mora was on CBSSports earlier today to talk about Signing Day, and there was a great interaction between him and RN:
UCLA coach Mora Jr. on recruiting (via CBSSports)
A couple of the key quotes after the jump.
Host: "How does signing day compare with anything else you’ve ever been through, like NFL draft day, say?"
CJM: "Well I think Rick can probably attest to this, it’s a lot different, you know, when you’re in a draft room, you’re picking the players, and on Signing Day, theyre kinda picking you, and so, theres a little more anxiety."
CJM: "I just wanna give a special thanks to Rick for setting the table for us here. And Rick, I…was putting your picture up, where you wouldn’t put it because you were too modest, I'm looking at it right now, #10, peeling back to rip one down the field at the Rose Bowl."
CRN: "Well I hope I completed it to the right colored jersey."
CJM: "Well I'm sure you did, and while we’re at it, your son is just one fantastic kid, and I'm really honored that he chose to stay here and play for UCLA."
CRN: "Well I'm thrilled that he’s there and he tells me everyday that things are going in the right direction. I'm happy for you and the class you brought in, that’s exactly what UCLA needed. I know it’s hard work to get it done."
There's a lot more from this interview, it's really worth it to watch through the whole thing.
