BIG TIME glowing spring practice report

Here we go again. Another year, more reports of the football team coming in with a new "attitude":

Two days into spring practice, UCLA's defensive players are learning what life will be like under new defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker and the revamped Bruins defensive staff.

The pace is quicker, the instruction more stern and the intensity, according to players, rivals that of training camp.

"The tempo of practice is different. Big time," Bruins cornerback Rodney Van said. "The coaches, from Day 1, they told us they were coming in yelling, screaming, and they were going to change (stuff) around. They weren't going to have last year's attitude pop up."
and how they are looking "sharp" in practice:
Looking offensive: Bruins quarterback Ben Olson has been sharp in his first two days, but coach Karl Dorrell didn't stop with the quarterback when glowing about the offense's performance.

"We're looking sharp," Dorrell said. "We're doing some good things already. The quarterbacks seem to have a pretty good grasp of things, the receivers seem to be showing up and making consistent plays the last couple of days, and it's good to see the young tight ends making a few good plays down the field, too."
Well lets hope all these glowing news of offense looking sharp and the defense flying around with its new attitude can make a difference next year - BIG TIME:
