Well it looks like Brian Dohn is going to serve as the excuse vehicle for the Doofus and all his pimps and minions for rest of the season.
Once again Typhoid Terry is out there playing the violin for his doofus protégé. This time he is rolling out the injury excuse:
The Bruins will use their fourth quarterback Saturday against No. 9 Arizona State at the Rose Bowl. Also, their top five running backs have missed time with injuries, two of their leading receivers are likely out for the season and four of their top eight defensive linemen missed significant time, all due to injuries.
"I think (the injuries) have had a huge affect on the team's ability to function, and to win," former UCLA coach Terry Donahue said. "You cannot absorb the injuries that UCLA has had to absorb and expect to maintain your team's consistency, or your team's ability level. No team is that deep.
"When you lose the quality of players that UCLA has lost, particularly in the positions UCLA has been hit hardest at, it's going to always have a very telling toll. And, certainly, it's happened to them."
Anyway, Typhoid Terry is a shameless joker. So he didn’t stop. He went on:
I am not going to waste any more time on Typhoid Terry. I will let Bruin Blue handle him later today. We have post from Bruin Blue on the Donahue Curse all cued up, which you don’t want to miss.
Moving on, there is a game this Saturday, which I really have no interested in. But since there are some notes on it, might as well mention it. Painter on how the D is gearing up to put pressure on Carpenter:
"We definitely need to get to (Carpenter) if we're going to win this game," defensive end Bruce Davis said. "He's their leader. He is to their team what I am to my team. He's got heart. He's got fire. The key to winning is getting after him and putting him on the ground.
"He and I have been known to go back and forth at each other. We get into some serious trash talking. It's great because he's a competitor. He makes the game more fun for everybody on the football field.
"On our defense, we love the challenge and we're all competitors. He gives us the opportunity to compete against one of the best in the conference."
Lastly, Foster from the LAT writes about Markey’s disappointing season to date, who had this to say on rest of the season:
