As referenced below over at What's Bruin, Rich Perleman has been grinding away. He is putting up interesting posts on various UCLA related items. But what's funny is that in a number of his posts even though he probably doesn't mean to do it, he ends up references to Dorrell's mediocre performance as a head coach.
For example, he has a good post re. renovation of the Rose Bowl facilities. However, in making his predictions in what is going to happen as Rose Bowl goes through renovations he slips out something we already know (emphasis mine throughout):
USC charges $51 for reserved seats for its games against Idaho, Washington State and Stanford; the Arizona, Oregon State and UCLA games are sold out.
Will UCLA fans pay more? They will for a winner.
Then there was this comment re. the new golf head coach:
Can he reach the standard by which all Bruin coaches are measured: future NCAA championships? "Yes, absolutely."
So we can presume Rich agrees with us that is the same exact measure by which we should judge Karl Dorrell.
May be he will answer that question here on Bruins Nation. We would love to hear his response.
As you can see though no matter how hard you try to steer away from the Dorrell topic when covering UCLA sports, you can't help but make references to Dorrell's underachievements during his four mediocres in Westwood. Its hard to stay away from that messy topic.
