What’s Bruin, 10/5: Schedule reactions aplenty

What does everyone think about the new, revised, shortened 2020 season schedule?!

The 2020 fall football season has already reached past Week 5 for some schools — while the UCLA Bruins and Pac-12 cohorts are still over a month away from their first games of their new seasons.

Announced this past weekend, each school knows their six official games while we’ll have to wait until the season unfolds to know who UCLA will play during the Pac-12 Championship Week.

So now that the season’s are announced for all 12 schools — what does everyone think? Obviously, here there will be favorable UCLA takes about the schedule — or well, at least relatively favorable considering your stance on the program to date.

Perhaps this is the final straw that breaks the camel’s back that is Chip Kelly’s tenure. Perhaps this is the year that UCLA actually does make waves with some solid quarterback play from DTR.

Or perhaps it’s somewhere in the middle and Kelly’s job is safe until next year due to the coronavirus pandemic allowing more leniency than ever.

So, what is everyone across the nation saying about UCLA’s schedule?

Reminder — here are the six games:

Week 1 — Saturday, November 7 — @ Colorado Buffaloes

Week 2 — Friday, November 13 — vs Utah Utes

Week 3 — Friday, November 20 — @ Oregon Ducks

Week 4 — Saturday, November 28 — vs Arizona Wildcats

Week 5 — Saturday, December 5 — @ Arizona State Wildcats

Week 6 — Saturday, December 12 — vs USC Trojans
