Happy Hump Day! Although we are still nine days away from the UCLA Football team's sojourn up to the The Farm to take on the Stanford Cardinal, there is sill a lot going on in the world of UCLA sports. Check What's Bruin today.
Chris Foster of the L.A. Times looks at whether UCLA needs to break out of its conservative offense by putting more faith in true freshman quarterback, Josh Rosen.
Joey Kaufman of the Orange County Register talks about the UCLA defense in the wake of the embarrassing touchdown run by ASU's Kalen Ballage--you know, the one one where the pile moved about 17 yards into the end zone--to seal the game for the Sun Devils. Kaufman also talks about the emerging Rosen to Thomas Duarte connection.
If you don't care about what ESPN talking head Scott Van Pelt has to say, skip this clip from ESPN about Myles Jack withdrawing from school to rehabilitate and go pro:
Frankly, there's tons of chatter out there about Myles' decision. I chose this clip because SVP seems to be censuring Coach Mora a bit about some of his comments (which were part of a larger subset of comments). In any event, this is IMHO wildly different insofar as coach support when compared to several years ago, when a certain quarterback from a certain school across town decided to go pro early, and his coach was none too happy.
Seven Bruins were named to the PAC 12 All-Century Women's Soccer team yesterday, including two members of the current Women's World Cup Champion United States Women's National Team, Lauren Cheney-Holiday and Sydney Leroux-Dwyer, and three members of UCLA's 2013 National Championship team, Abby Dahlkemper, Sam Mewis, and Katelyn Rowland. Congratulations to all seven women who were selected!
After leading the UCLA Men's Soccer team to a 3-2 come-back double OT victory over the University of Washington Huskies with a two goal performance (including the game winner) on Sunday night, freshman midfielder, Jose Hernandez has been named the UCLA Athlete of the Week. Congrats to Jose!
With a score of ten under par, UCLA Senior Jonathan Garrick won the Erin Hills Intercollegiate tournament yesterday, in Erin, Wisconsin. Garrick broke 70 in all three of his rounds. As a team, UCLA placed third in the tournament. Congratulations to Jonathan! And congratulations to the UCLA Men's golf team as a whole.
That's all she wrote for What's Bruin today. Get through today and it is all downhill until the weekend!
Have a great day and Go Bruins!
