4-12: UCLA Football’s Record v Top-25 Teams in Last 4 Years

Some ugly numbers from ESPN's Kevin Gemmell:

Record vs. Top 25: 4-12 (.250)

Best win: Maybe No. 7 Texas was looking ahead to the showdown with Oklahoma. Oh well, don't turn the ball over four times in the first 30 minutes. Great performance from Johnathan Franklin in the 34-12 win in 2010.

Worst loss: Toss up between the 35-0 loss to No. 25 Stanford at home in 2010 or the 59-0 loss to No. 18 BYU in 2008. Both were brutal -- but the BYU one probably stung more since the Bruins had clipped No. 18 Tennessee in overtime just 12 days earlier in the season opener.

What makes UCLA's performance even more pathetic in last 4 years is that it happened when the conference except for Oregon and Southern Cal was mostly down. Even Southern Cal was somewhat hobbled and out of sorts during Cheatey Carroll's last years as they were distracted by all the cheating scandals. Yet Bruins completely failed took advantage of it by posting pathetic record against quality competition and playing less than mediocre against other average to below average teams in the conference.

Still there were so many so called fans out there even after Arizona game, making arguments to bring Rick Neuheisel for at least one more season. And there was Chianti himself talking up UCLA's chances to go the Rose Bowl even after 0-50. Why is this guy still the director of the athletic department again and collecting almost million dollar per year from UCLA?

GO BRUINS.
