Lets make something clear right off the bat this game day.
Today's game means nothing. It is not going to tell us anything new about the Sleeping Beauty's joke of a football program. So please disregard this kind of BS from his incompetent coaching staff:
The real news wrt to UCLA football comes from Dohn today. Apparently players are naming names and pointing fingers at each other:
So destructive was last week's annihilation that it resulted in a players' only meeting in which, according to team sources, individuals were singled out for not working hard enough during the week, and not being prepared to play.
More recap from Dohn on last weekend's fall out, which is going to reverberate through rest of the season:
A year ago, under Jim Svoboda, UCLA's offense scored 69 points in the opening three games.
And now the offense is missing three crucial components, each knocked out with injury against the Utes.
Four-year starter Shannon Tevaga (knee) is out at left guard, replaced by senior P.J. Irvin, who is making his first start. Second-leading receiver Marcus Everett (ankle) will not play, and quarterback Ben Olson (concussion) is unavailable, meaning Patrick Cowan, who missed a month of practice because of a hamstring pull, is forced to lead a timing-based, quick-decision offense after three practices.
"It's time for the leadership to step up more," UCLA senior receiver Brandon Breazell said. "It's not just the 25 seniors we have. We need everyone to grow up, and everybody to buy into the program."
Obviously all the nonsense we heard from these guys were all BS, just like everything we hear today is all BS.
So pardon us if we are not approaching today's game as some kind of watershed moment in Dorrell's tenure.
It is all meaningless at this point.
Anyways, doesn't mean we are going to tune out football today or rest of the season. We are going to be around to watch the Clown show.
We hope everyone who is heading out the Rose Bowl will have a great time.
We will be back here with our game thread little later today.
I am ready. I already have my
