Bruin Bites: Marsh Ejection Aftermath, More Work to Do, and Big Joe's Big Celebrations

Stephen Dunn

It's Monday morning and our Bruins are gearing up for a major test on the road with Stanford coming up in Palo Alto this Saturday. It'll be the second ranked opponent for the Bruins, and a team rearing to prove its top-10 credentials after a loss in Salt Lake City and will be looking to knock off the Bruins. With the work week getting started, we take a look at the various bits and pieces of news from around the football-related UCLA-iverse.

It's always good to beat a conference opponent, even when it's a ho-hum Berkeley team.  With the Trojans struggling, the Bruins back in the top-10, and Berkeley returning to mediocrity in the post-Tedford era, it does feel a lot like the 1990s.  But while it feels good to be 5-0 and heading into the weekend against #13-ranked Stanford, the Bruins' win over Berkeley left a lot to be desired.  And by a lot to be desired, I mean, 20 or so points left on the field, in a game that was much closer than it should have been.  That's to be expected of college kids, especially when they're playing a joke team and looking ahead to Stanford and Oregon, but it needs to tighten up fast for the UCLA offense.  So, let's see how practice goes this week as they gear up for a big trip to Palo Alto.  So, with all of that said, let's take a look at the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse this Monday morning:

Alright folks, those are your bits and pieces of news from around the football-related UCLA-iverse. Fire away with your comments, additions, thoughts, etc. in the thread as we kick off yet another work week.
