What’s Bruin, 11/16: UCLA dominates Cal

And the reactions to both the win (and Cal’s loss) are interesting (oh, and did you know Chip sold his house?)

NCAA Football: California at UCLA Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Your UCLA Bruins dominated the action this weekend against the California Golden Bears, reaching a ripe ole record of 1-1 to start the shortened Pac-12 Football season. Like it or not, we’re already 33% of the way completed with the regular season this year and the Bruins are sitting at .500.

In fact, that .500 record is the first time that Chip Kelly has led his Bruins team to that good of a record in his tenure as the UCLA head coach. Has he bought himself more time?! We’re not here to discuss that today because I, for one, am exhausted on that conversation.

And besides, rumors are flying around that Penn State head coach James Franklin is the right guy to replace USC head coach Clay Helton because the Trojans are sitting at 2-0 with come-from-behind victories necessary to reach such a record.

Also the coaching carousel has started after South Carolina fired Will Muschamp so everyone wants to be right, or first, or whatever, on the next move.

I digress.

We’re here to look at the feels and analysis from everyone and anyone about UCLA’s dominant victory. You know what I had to say (even if I did F up the quarter math — you all knew what I was trying to say!). Now let’s see what everyone else has to say:
