Bruin Bites: Washington State Game Day Edition

The Saturday morning edition of the Bruin Bites round-up of the various bits and pieces from around the UCLA-iverse, while providing an open thread for the college football action leading up to the UCLA/Washington State kickoff.


It's Saturday and the Bruins are going to be in action tonight against the disappointing Washington State Cougars who have not gotten the kind of instant turn-around from new coach Mike Leach that Arizona, UCLA, and Arizona State have enjoyed under their first year head coaches. While the Cougars are the weaker team on paper, tonight's game feels like the classic trap game for UCLA: on the road in Pullman (which is always hard to win at), against a much weaker team, a week before taking on hated U$C for the Pac-12 South crown. So, once again, Jim Mora will have a big test: can he keep his high-flying Bruins focused on the task at hand, or will UCLA once again succumb to the typical collapse on the road that we've sadly become accustomed to during Chianti Dan's decade of mediocrity.

With that, let's turn to the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse:

Alright folks, those are your Bruin Bites to get this Saturday morning of college football started.
