We will have more thoughts on Blue Ribbon's preview of UCLA football later today (as we see that multiple fanshots have gone on that topic in last 24 hours). Meanwhile, another major pre-season publication has come out with their projects for this upcoming season.

Phil Steele is projecting our Bruins to take on Kansas State in the Holiday Bowl this December. Got this via Pacific Takes which notes (despite what we hear from excuse-makers) talent will not certainly not be an issue. As noted by Avinash on PT (emphasis added):

Mora will have the second-most talent in the conference, which is a good sign. A bad sign is that his predecessor managed to do precious little with that talent. Rick Neuheisel went 17-16 against the worst of the conference, 4-10 against the middlers, and 0-4 against USC. Horrid numbers and probably the worst metrics of any Pac-12 coach surveyed relative to recruiting rankings. Mora will have to do a lot better if he plans to last as long as Neuheisel did. Deja vu isn't likely to be tolerated.

He has it right.

GO BRUINS.
