Bruin Bites: Barr Profile, Howland Puff Piece, and Hundley's Pending Decision

Yes, Brett, we need one more year! - Stephen Dunn

It's Monday morning and it's the last full week of practice for Jim Mora and our Bruins as they gear up for a New Year's Eve show-down with Frank Beamer and the Virginia Tech Hokies in the Sun Bowl. Hopefully, it won't be the last week of practices for Brett Hundley in Westwood. With the Christmas work week underway, we recap the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse.

We're starting another work week, albeit it a weird one with a holiday slapped right down in the middle. For our Bruins, they're busy gearing up for one last football game this season, a must-win bowl fight against Virginia Tech. Otherwise, Westwood is quiet with every other team out until the weekend. So, with that said, let's take a look at the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse for this first day of a kind-of-weird Christmas-on-a-Wednesday work week:

Alright folks, those are your Bruin Bites as we kick off this Christmas week. Fire away with your additions, opinions, and commentary in the thread as we follow Jim Mora and our football Bruins as they gear up for the Sun Bowl.
