KD's Hot Seat Gets HOTTER

The Thinker's hot seat gets HOTTER.

Last week we mentioned how TSN writer - Dorrell honk Matt Hayes - has UCLA football in his pre-season top-10 at no. 6. Stewart Mandel from CNNSI had UCLA in his top-15. ESPN writer has UCLA in his top-20 (pronouncing KD on the hot seat). And now CFN has UCLA in its pre-season top-10 above Michigan:

9.   UCLA   2006 Record: 7-6

Who will the quarterback be? The Pat Cowan/Ben Olson debate will be the big one this off-season. That's the only offensive issue with ten starters returning. The defense loses Justin Hickman, but All-America end Bruce Davis comes back along with nine other starters. The team's biggest loss is PK Justin Medlock.
There you have it. That's from which is as mainstream as it gets when it comes to setting expectations during pre-season. Looks like it is not going to be difficult to build the case this off season that UCLA will have to fire Karl Dorrell if he comes up with a season in 2007 that is anything short of a Pac-10 championship.
