Mazzone: "I got to go back and look at the film"

Here are Noel Mazzone's comments after the game (courtesy of Jack Wang at Inside UCLA):

He generally appears clueless in the video. Apparently he was still trying to figure out WTF happened to the offense in the second half during which the Bruins got blitzed 0-28 with numerous pathetic 3 and outs by O.

At this point what Mazzone does against a Colorado team in what should be a blowout Bruin loss doesn't matter all that much. Even if the Bruins roll up 500+ yards at the Rose Bowl next weekend, it won't matter all that much if the offense continues to look out of sync, unbalanced and off rhythm.

Blaming the running game or young OL are not valid excuses at this point given both those units performed admirably yesterday. Mazzone also admitted that Bruins have enough "talented receivers" and have to get those guys the ball, but he apparently has no idea what plays to call to get them the ball.

Mazzone offered up the usual BS coach speak about needing to "get back to work" and how he also needs "look at the film." Yeah, none of us really holding our collective breath. We will see how the Bruins respond not just against Colorado but during rest of this regular season, which should be an undefeated run to the Pac-12 championship game.



WATCH: Mora's Postgame Comments: Will They Matter?

Here are Jim Mora's comments after UCLA's latest loss in a big game since Bruins' win over Lane Kiffin coached Southern Cal last year (thanks to for the video):

Mora shows a lot of emotion, brings up the "young" and "experience" "factor" but stop short of calling it as an "excuse."

Mora also scoffed at the nonsense of "moral victory" - some sunshine pimpers are already out there talking about how Bruins played Ducks close for three quarters.

He said all the right things BUT none of this will matter if UCLA doesn't get it done and end up with a successful season and eventually end up in a BCS bowl game by next season:



Mora: Hundley "Needs to Shine" in These Games

Well this is interesting:

Mora apparently was hot during his post game:


Talk is cheap at this point especially after all the hype about "#BruinRevolution." Despite all the hype Bruin offense looked just as pathetic as any other Bruin offense that went up to Eugene in previous years under failed coaching regimes.

No, we are not counting out Mora after last two games. But we are watching. When Mora was hired at Westwood (a job he campaigned for) the talking point was all about how he was the next Pete Carroll. Well folks should look up the kind of jump Pete Carroll made in his second season at Southern Cal. It didn't entail having an offense look so impotent in marquee games on national TV. And, it also didn't include playing in ho-hum bowl games before January 1st.
