Wow, going to work on Monday is a lot better when the Bruins pull out a big victory during the weekend, wouldn't you agree? I'm sure many of us are still basking in the awesomeness of UCLA's victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers, which featured over 600 yards of total offense against their vaunted "Blackshirts" on defense. But, we need to adopt the same mindset that Jim Mora is imposing on this football team: it's Monday, so it's time to get back to work. But, for us, it'll be a work week of eager anticipation to see if our Bruins can keep the momentum up against Houston this Saturday.

Don't forget, Neuheisel pulled out some big-time wins too: beating Tennessee in both 2008 and 2009, beating Texas in Austin in 2010. Yet, those Bruins always found a way to falter in a follow-up game that the Bruins should have won (the 59-0 beatdown in Provo followed the 2008 Tennessee win, UCLA got thumped by a mediocre Cal team two weeks after the 2010 Texas win). Houston will prove a true test of whether this team has bought into Mora's tough-talking, hard-working, one-week-at-a-time mantra. So, with that said, let's turn to the various bits and pieces of news floating around the UCLA-iverse to get the work week started:

Alright folks, those are your Bruin Bites to start the work week with. Fire away with your thoughts, takes, and additions in the comments thread.
