Stanford UCLA Preview

The has a preview of UCLA from the Stanford perspective.  They conclude by saying this:

I do not normally do this (and bit my tongue all those years the talking heads at home called for Lloyd Carr's head), but if Karl Dorrell does not make the BCS this year, he needs to go.  Any head coach in the country would die for his team's experience (20 returning starters), lack of attrition (Medlock was the team's only draft pick in Round 5 - that is the fewest players drafted and lowest first pick in 10 years), talent pool (UCLA is getting four- and five-star California kids like never before now that USC is almost too big for many of those recruits) and schedule (all five toughest games in L.A.).  It is now or never for Dorrell - if he cannot win under these circumstances, when in the world should he be expected to?
