It's hard to believe that game time is just a few days away. Make sure to review O's outstanding game preview for SDSU.
Kuwada from the OCR reports that Ben Olson's injured hand may be more serious than initially believed.
There's also a note about former Mater Dei HS and and Notre Dame freshman DT Brandon Nicolas, who reportedly is transferring from ND and will decide between Colorado and UCLA sometime this week.
Finally, there is a note on some scholarships handed out to walk-ons LB Christian Taylor, QB Brian Callahan, WR Andrew Baumgartner, and S Charlie Schuh. Congrats on being rewarded for your hard work guys.
Lonnie White of the LAT has a piece with some Blurbs from Larry Kerr discussing how miserable his D was last year and how the players have learned from the experience and will play "fast and hard" this season. We certainly hope that's the case coach.
Oh, and Coach Dorrell is going to speak at Friday Morning's Westwood Bruins TD Club Breakfast. If any BN readers are able to make it, will you ask the coach WTF he was talking about when he discussed camp in his Monday Press Conference:

Brian Dohn from the LADN stays on the topic of defense in his piece on UCLA's newly discovered strategy of stopping Stopping the Run. Starting DT Nate Skaggs chimes in on the staff's innovative defensive philosophy:
Guess what? The Bruins have a "new attitude" this year as well:
I wonder if this "new attitude" is the same "new attitude" and "buzz" that swept the program when Dorrell took over? At least everyone's on the same page now! (Sorry, couldn't resist.)
Stay tuned this week as the Dorrell speak goes into high gear.
