Tim Brando recently jumped on the UCLA bandwagon, giving even more attention to Jim Mora's team by releasing his Preseason Top 10 via Twitter with the Bruins at #1.
My Preseason CFB Top 10: 10. LSU 9. Wisconsin 8. Oregon 7. Alabama 6. Baylor 5. South Carolina 4. Michigan St. 3. Oklahoma 2. FSU 1. UCLA— Tim Brando (@TimBrando) June 20, 2014
While I doubt many expect UCLA to receive such a ranking (I surely don't), the praise serves further notice that UCLA should be at least a PAC-12 title contender this season. Bruce Feldman chimed in on Tim Brando's prediction by calling it "bold", citing questions at RB and WR for reasons why UCLA might not win a national title this year, but the tweet did not exactly shoot down Tim Brando's suggestion.
Bold pick by @TimBrando on #UCLA at #1. Bruins have good leaders in Hundley & a star in Jack. Not sure RBs/WRs good enough to win it all tho— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) June 20, 2014
If you recall, Bruce Feldman mentioned in January that UCLA was a team to watch this year as a possible title contender. At the very least, Bruce Feldman agrees that UCLA could be in the mix, which is what we expect this year in Westwood.
