Bruin Bites: UCLA-Arizona State Gameday Edition

It's Saturday and UCLA won the previous Saturday, so if history is any guide, the Bruins are going to go out and embarrass themselves today against Arizona State.  Unable to follow a victory with anything than a loss, often in embarrassing fashion (Texas, Stanford, and Arizona), the Bruins take on a very talented, if sometimes undisciplined Arizona State Sun Devils squad at the Rose Bowl.  Kick-off is set for 4:30 p.m. PST and the pre-game thread will be up later this afternoon.

While some uninformed pundits are pumping this up as a key game in the Pac-12 South race, as we've said before, it is another meaningless game in the bigger picture of UCLA football.  A win will be nice, but to be clear: it will not save Neuheisel's job, and it should certainly not save Guerrero from his years of incompetent "leadership" at Morgan Center.

Only one thing will really bring energy and excitement back to Westwood: Dan Guerrero must be fired or resign immediately.  Folks needs to not focus on Neuheisel, because, as we've said, he's done regardless at this point.  It's now time to focus on the root of UCLA's problems: the tone-deaf, ineffectual chump running Morgan Center. As we've said on BN (and as many of you, on Facebook, on MexiBruin's petition, and other places across the social media landscape), nothing short of wholesale regime change will suffice.

Before we get to the pre-game thread, let's take a look at some of the bits and pieces of football news from around the UCLA-iverse:

Those are your pre-game Bruin Bites.  Sit tight and the pre-game thread will be up in a few hours.  For now, feel free to fire away with your thoughts in the open thread or check out the BN previews of Arizona State (here and here)  Finally, if you haven't done so already, make sure you get your pre-game guesses in before kick-off at 4:30 p.m. PST on third-rate garbage network Versus.
