It's Monday morning, so once again, it's time for us to take a look at the various bits and pieces of news floating around the UCLA-iverse, as well as recap all of the non-revenue sports action from the past week.

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

It's Monday morning, and the casual UCLA fan is feeling good after opening the paper and seeing the Bruins manhandled Colorado 42-14 in Boulder. Yes, it was a solid win on the road over a conference opponent. Yes, UCLA now stands at 4-1, just two games short of bowl qualification and it's only October 1.

But, as we saw against Oregon State, this UCLA team still has execution issues. If you watched UCLA take on an absolutely hapless Colorado squad, you'd wonder (1) man, Washington State must be pathetic if they lost to these guys and (2) the Bruins' play wasn't that satisfying. There are still places this teams needs to improve if they are going to hang tough and beat the conference big dogs (Oregon, U$C). You get the sense that Oregon would have hung 60-70 points on Colorado before stepping off the gas and putting in the second (or third) team. We're not there yet. So, yes it feels good to win and bounce back after that disappointing loss to a beatable Oregon State squad, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves.

So, with that said, let's get to the bits and pieces of news floating around the UCLA-iverse at the beginning of this work week that finds our Bruins getting ready to head to the Bay Area to take on Cal. Here's the Bruin Bites for this Monday morning:
