Spaulding Roundup: Early Stanford Week Notes

Eric Francis

UCLA Football news and notes as we head into Stanford Week

Now that we have made it through the weekend and are into the main week, time to put the UC Berkeley game behind us and start getting ready for the trip up to the farm to play Stanford. Today is Coach Mora's day off from addressing the media, though the day was not without any team interviews.

Jack Wang got hold of Brett Hundley after practice, talking with him about the importance of the upcoming Stanford/Oregon double.


Chris Foster noted that Gary Beban has written to Brett, while noting that team success in the next couple of weeks could lead to the start of a late (and non-Morgan Center fueled) Hundley Heisman campaign.

Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks are looking forward to playing against Stanford's "power" offense.

"This is what we grew up knowing and watching on TV, games with big, tough linebackers," Kendricks said.

...

"This is power football," said UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr. "That's what we came here to do, play in games like this. It's running the ball, not zone read, but with power."

Not to be left out, Seali'i Epenesa is also very much looking forward to this week's challenge.

Anthony and Eric also got the video treatment via Jack, with a discussion of the team feeling and their handling of Lou Spanos' defensive schemes.

Chris Foster and Edward Lewis both reported seeing Jordon James wearing a walking boot today - not looking particularly good that he will be able to play on Saturday. And no word yet from the Pac-12 or Coach Mora regarding any further punishment for Cassius Marsh following his ejection from the Cal game. As Bellerophon noted this morning, Cassius has to learn to ignore baiting and to keep his emotions in check. As a senior, he likely should have already reached that point in his development as a player.
