Found a great new college football blog this week - Sunday Morning Quarterback. Check it out. They are fun to read. They have been doing their conference previews, which will blow any of the boilerplate stuff you read in the worn out, standard, stale pre-season magazines out of the water. Pac-10 is yet to come.
SMQ seemed to have UCLA all figured out though, listing us at number top-24 in their pre-season top-25:
So here's guessing, tentatively, that the Bruins will be, especially if quarterback Drew Olson's knee is okay. If it's not, another highly-touted Olson, Ben, transfered from BYU to back him up, but either way the quickest route to eight wins is via Maurice Drew. Resist the onset of contagious PAC Ten pass wackiness and place the ball more often into the hands of this talented gentleman (Drew had only 160 carries last year, still gaining 1,000 yards), and see if the pollsters don't start paying attention for the first time since the early days of the decade.
