Spaulding Roundup: Throwback Time?

We might be seeing our Bruins in these uniforms at the Rose Bowl for homecoming game this year:

Those are the Bruins celebrating a Rose Bowl victory over Michigan State in 199666. Per Dohn UCLA is thinking about wearing the throwback uniform for a game in 2009:

It is a light blue jersey with a pair of white stripes on the shoulders and white numerals. UCLA wore plain gold helmets.
The target for throwback day is UCLA's homecoming game, which would allow the school to celebrate the program's history.

It would be nothing short of awesome. Let's hope they get it done.

Also on another note, CRN is "much further along" in recruiting class of 2010 than he was for 09.:

UCLA football coach Rick Neuheisel said the Bruins were well ahead of last year's pace when it came to the 2010 class, and offering recruits. The Bruins have more than 20 offers out to high school juniors.
He acknowledged how different it is now compared to when he coached at Colorado and Washington.
"That's part of the deal," he said. "You've got to accept it, and that's fine. We're much further along than we were a year ago. Much further along."

That's a scary thought for Pom Pom and his poodles and I bet it will undoubtedly lead to more scuds from South Central. Good times.
